"By a Swedish played the world CUP final in table tennis was in 1997."
"this is terrible," said the legendary Jan-Ove Waldner after Mattias falck's success."
"the Swedish table tennis is alive."
"the 27-year-old Mattias Falk (formerly Karlsson) and completed during the Saturday its phenomenal success, and was sensational for the world CUP final."
"He defeated sydkoreanen An Jae-Hyun with a 4-3 win in the set in a real thriller. And at home in front of the tv set icon J-O Waldner and cheered."
"– Yes, and my god how strong he is, Mattias. Sure, he was the favorite in this match, but you should do it too, " says Waldner to Sportbladet."
"do you Think he was nervous?"
"– of Course. Such a chance may not be so often. To go into a world CUP semi-final and be favourite ... it's a damn cool shot and it is so well done of him to do it."
"By an american was in the final of the table tennis world CHAMPIONSHIPS was in 1997. "
"Then it was J-O Waldner."
"– Yes, it was awful long ago. Mattias, do it again is terribly large. Sick large. And fun to SVT showed the game as well. The feeling is that this could be a good impact for pingisen, " says Waldner."
"Yes, it appears to involve very many?"
"– It will be so. Table tennis is an awesome tv sport. Although it is a little faster now – bollduellerna was longer in our time – are there many people who think it is fun to watch."
"What is the meaning of this success?"
"– Incredibly much, both for Swedish table tennis and of Mattias himself. Now, he will remain in the history books forever. A final is a final, and world CUP only goes every two years, so it is really not easy, " says J-O Waldner."
"Then he must be achievement of the year”"
"In the final set Mattias Falck against the toughest possible opposition. Namely Ma Long, who won two world CHAMPIONSHIPS (2015 and 2017) and an OLYMPIC gold medal (in 2016)."
"– he Wins it then he should have the achievement of the year, "says J-O."
"– Certainly not, but you never know, Mattias has an extremely strong psyche and chinese people are usually able to get a little nervous. He has nothing to lose and there is probably a nice setting to go into a final."
