  • Description

    The 33rd World Table Tennis Championships ended in Calcutta, India on Sunday (February 16) with Asia's domination of the men's game over, but with the far eastern women still invisible.

    China, who romped away with both team titles earlier in the week, had only one representative in the singles finals, Chang Li in the women's events and she was decisively beaten by the superior speed of North Korean girl, Yung Sun Kim.

    The Chinese succeeded in the team events because their opponents could not adjust to their new serving techniques over the best of three games. But over five games in the singles events the mystery was solved and the first men's final in 22 years in which Asia had no interest,was totally dominated by spin.

    Hungary's Istvan Jonyer beat Anton Stipancic of Yugoslavia in what was generally a dull game with most rallies restricted to two or three shots.
