Subhajit, Divya shine at Asian Cup, Guangzhou

Upsets galore! Subhajit Saha beat World No. 18 Jiang Tianyi in the group stage of the Asian Table Tennis Cup. The amazing thing is that Tianyi went on to win the Bronze medal in an almost world class tournament that had many top players except the Chinese cream.

Wang Liqin continued his inevitable slide by losing to Iran's Noshad Alamiyan.

Divya Deshpande of India topped Group D Women's section of the Asian Cup. She beat world no. 134 Beh Lee Wei twice (in group and second stage) to finish a creditable 13th.
The GAC TOYOTA (Camry) 25th Table Tennis Asian Cup 2012 was held at Guangzhou from 6th -8th Apr. 2012.
