"Incredible success continues: ”Incredibly large”"
"Mattias Falck, 27, sensationally advanced in the world CUP final in table tennis."
"Now he wants to tear down the great wall of china."
'I shall surprise you," says the swede."
"Falck (formerly Karlsson) and showed once again the sample of strong psyche when he is in Saturday's semifinals, defeated sydkoreanen An Jae-Hyun with 4-3 in the set."
"Afterwards could coach Jörgen Persson't keep the tears back."
" I didn't think I would be so emotional, but there I was. Me and Mattias have known each other for so long and that you get to sit there on the tränarstolen and see him do it here ... nah, it's magical, " says Persson."
"Falck to yourself? He just yelled out of joy."
"– Everything let go. It is difficult to describe the emotions, " he says."
"Now he is writing into the history books. "
"With the name Jan-Ove Waldner and just Jörgen Persson."
"– I probably have not had time to make it yet. I grew up with these guys as idols and now mentioned it a bit in the same breath. It is how large, " says Falck."
"In the final waiting for the toughest possible resistance."
"Ma Long, who won two world CHAMPIONSHIPS (2015 and 2017) and an OLYMPIC gold medal (in 2016)."
"Sweden against China. As in the good old days."
"– Right, we have a history, says Falck."
" of Course, Ma is the Long favorite, but I'll make sure to surprise again. I have to be up at my absolute top level to beat him and I will be sure to do."
"Coach Jörgen Persson is also hopeful."
" Ma Long is pingisens answer to Roger Federer, of course he will be svårstoppad, but Mattias has nothing to lose."
"It is time to tear down the great wall of china again?"
"– Yes, it would be appropriate. When we did it in 1989, it was perfect for the european game of table tennis, it was something that the whole world had been waiting for. Now it was a long time since Europe challenged for the major titles, so I think most will keep on Mattias in the final, says Jörgen Persson."
