Sun Yingsha and Wang Manyu secured the women’s doubles title while Fan Zhendong and Ma Long advanced to the men’s singles final on a successful day for China at the World Table Tennis Grand Smash in Singapore.

Japanese pair Hina Hayata and Mima Ito had no answers to Sun and Wang who completed a comprehensive 11-4, 11-6, 11-4 victory at the OCBC Arena.

Sun is seeking to claim her second title of the Singapore Smash having teamed up with Wang Chuqin to win the mixed doubles crown earlier this week.

"I’ve learnt a lot from Manyu and she has many strengths I can aspire to emulate," said Sun.

"There are many more years for us to play as a women’s doubles pair, and I hope we can continue to improve our game."

In the men's singles, Fan and Ma are set to meet in a repeat of the Olympic final at Tokyo 2020.

Ma came out on top in the Japanese capital and looked in fine form as he defeated compatriot Liang Jingkun 11-5, 11-9, 11-4, 11-8.

"I didn’t expect to win the semi-final 4-0, but every game was very close - I was also trailing in the second game," said the 33-year-old.

"I wasn’t expecting such a smooth win, as Liang Jingkun is a formidable player.

"For tomorrow’s final, the head-to-head record doesn’t matter much to me.

"Fan Zhendong is another strong opponent who has been playing well throughout this event, and I’ll be playing without much pressure.

"I hope I can make things tough for him and play my best."

Fan came through a tough battle against Japan’s 49th-ranked challenger Yukiya Uda to advance to the final.

The world number one saved four game points in the fourth game and overcame a 5-0 deficit in the sixth to beat Uda 11-9, 7-11, 11-7, 16-14, 11-13, 11-9.

He is seeking to add the inaugural Singapore Smash to his titles at the World Championships and WTT Cup Finals.

"This is my first time playing against Uda in the men’s singles, and his great performance today was just as I expected," said Fan.

"There were a few lucky moments that contributed to the win, but there were also quite a few good points from Uda that I can learn from.

"When I trailed 0-5, I was just trying to focus on staying calm and maintaining a positive attitude. 

"That eventually turned things around for me."

Fan and Ma will go head-to-head tomorrow, while the all-Chinese women’s singles final between world number two Chen Meng and world champion Wang Manyu will also be staged.
