    Germany’s medal hope and world number four Timo Boll has withdrawn
    from the Men’s Doubles event at the H.I.S. 2009 World Table Tennis
    Championships starting on Tuesday.

    Problems during the
    preparation with his lumbar column forced Boll to take this
    precautionary measure. Boll is not the only male top player focusing on
    the Singles.

    Only One Event for Boll’s Body
    German
    national coach Richard Prause explained the reason: "Timo has practised
    only a limited amount due to his injury and it is not yet completely
    healed in spite of intensive care during the past days."

    Although
    the medal chances are reduced for the German delegation, Prause
    justified the decision. "Together we decided that Timo does not have
    the necessary physical shape to resist two events at the World
    Championships."

    Süss for his part will play the Singles as well as the Mixed Doubles event with Elke Schall.

    Chinese Stars Reduce their Schedules
    Boll
    is not the only absentee in the Doubles. Men’s Singles defending
    champion Wang Liqin and Olympic winner Ma Lin will not play Doubles
    events either.

    Female world number one Zhang Yining will only compete in the Singles event, like Boll, Wang and Ma too.

    Kreanga not in Yokohama
    Kalinikos
    Kreanga does neither play the Singles nor the Men’s Doubles events in
    Yokohama. The 37 year old Greek will miss his second consecutive World
    Championships. After Werner Schlager, Kreanga is already the second
    player from the top 16 to cancel his participation in the Men’s
    Singles.
