After the usage of the plastic ball, Xu Xin's topspins got considerably slower and some of them aren't even going in like the match between him and fan zhendong (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uukbzDOnT6I). Is this the end for Xu Xin? If it is, then who is going to be the next penholder?

Hi Romeo,

I don’t think it is the end at all.  Watch out for him...

What do others think?

I personally don't think that this is the end at all. His topspins may be slower, and less dangerous, but however, because of this Xu Xin has started to do a lot of tricky shots. (Weird sidespin, and tricky loops). For your question; "Who is going to be the next penholder?" I honestly have no idea. I haven't seen that many top penholders around except for Xu Xin. There will probably be one very soon though, so keep your eyes open! smile
