Hi Yasir,

My favourite from China at the moment is Xu Xin.  Maybe because he is left handed but I like his forehand topspin.

My favourite player from the rest of the world is Timo Boll.  I also like his attacking topspin on both sides and his ability to compete against the top Chinese players.

Don't know about their rubbers.

Not so easy to say who is favourite...

* The top Chinese are the absolute best in terms of skill. But I don't like there robot like appearance.

* Waldner was very much skilled and has personality but he is old now and not a top player anymore, same goes for Persson.

* I think Timo Boll has it all! He is skilled, among the best of the world and very sporty and friendly!

For who is interested in funny Timo playing against amateur: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb6zGnRwj18

I find it a terrible shame Timo is slowly comming to the end of his carreer as an absolute elite player and I have no qlue who can fill this huge gap when Timo is retired! :(  Dimitri Ovcharov maybe?!

My favorite player from china would have to be a tie between Ma Long and Xu Xin, although Xu Xin is my polar opposite (I'm righty shakehand, and he's lefty penhold), although out of China my favorite is Dimitrij Ovtcharov or Timo Boll (I'm not good at making decisions!!!)

For non-Chinese player, Michael Maze followed closely by a raft of other players like Joo Se Hyuk, Jun Mizutani and Waldner.

Hard to think of a favourite Chinese player...certainly Xu Xin is just freaky talented!  Also Wang Liqin is likeable enough - and one of the most dominant players I've ever seen in his day.
