    Only one month after the Chinese delegation showed an impressive
    performance at the 2009 H.I.S. World Table Tennis Championships
    sweeping 17 medals from the possible 20, there is yet another chance
    again for the rest of the world to challenge the champions.

    The
    Volkswagen 2009 China vs. World All Stars will take place in Shanghai
    on 8th and 9th June with the participation of the best players in the
    world and an overall prize money of 220.000 US dollars.

    All Chinese Stars
    The
    event will be held in the Chinese port city of Shanghai, also host of
    the 2005 World Table Tennis Championships. On two evenings the
    spectators in Shanghai and TV viewers all over the country will see
    their men’s squad lined up with the world number 1 to 3.

    The
    Chinese women’s team will also consist of the top three ranked players
    in the world, led by Olympic champion and World champion Zhang Yining.
    Therefore it will not be an easy task to challenge the teams from the
    People’s Republic.

    Two Europeans and Japan’s Rising Star
    The
    World All Stars, however, do not have to back down at all. A Eurasian
    combination shall bring the success and spectacular sport.

    Evergreen
    Vladimir Samsonov of Belarus represents the experience; Joo Se Hyuk and
    Kim Kyung Ah from Korea guarantee spectacular defensive style in the
    Men’s and Women’s Team challenge; Feng Tianwei of Singapore is the
    world’s best female player not representing the People’s Republic;
    Romania’s Daniela Dodean is one of the promising young generation and
    the only 17 years old Japanese Kenta Matsudaira was the only one to
    scare the Chinese at the recently held World Championships by
    stretching Olympic champion Ma Lin to a seven games thriller.

    Prize Money and Line-Up in Shanghai
    The
    total prize money of the team challenge matches is US$ 220.000; the
    winning team takes US$ 70.000, while the losing team will be
    compensated with US$ 40.000.
