Fan Zhendong has cruised his way through to the semifinals thus far, including a 4-0 win over South Korea’s biggest table tennis star, Youngsik Jeoung.
Zhendong is looking to win a gold medal at Tokyo 2020 for Table Tennis in order to etch his name into the record books as one of China’s most successful athletes.
Bet On Men’s Table Tennis
Those looking to bet on the Olympics can wager on Zhendong who currently has odds of (-170).
Paying less than 2/1 for a dominant star like Zhendong is a terrific value but his biggest competition is his fellow countryman Ma Long.
With the current draw, the likelihood of an all-China final in Men’s Table Tennis is extremely high.
The two athletes recently met in the finals of the ITTF Men’s World Cup in what was called “The China Derby” back in November of 2020.
Zhendong overwhelmed Long 4-3 to win his third straight World Cup championship. He became the second player in the history of the World Cup to win four career world titles.
With the recent history between the two, Zhendong should be familiar with his opponent and know exactly what it takes to claim his gold medal win for the 2021 Summer Olympics.
