Women’s Singles: DING Ning vs LIU Shiwen

No surprise here as the number 1 and number 2 seeds and the two best women in the world met on the world stage. Liu Shiwen defeated the reigning World and Olympic Champion Li Xiaoxia in the semis to reach the finals. Ding Ning had to dig down really deep in the Quarter-Finals (Wu Yang) and Semi-Finals (Mu Zi) as she came away with two grueling wins that went the 7 game distance. The moment of the match and perhaps the entire championships was the freak ankle injury that Ding sustained in game seven, which resulted in an extended time out.
