Liu wins her third TT World Cup

Kobe: Chinese paddler Liu Shiwen clinched her third women`s table tennis World Cup after beating teammate Wu Yang in four sets.

The world No.1 ranked player triumphed 11-3, 11-7, 11-7, 11-2 on Monday.

She won the World Cup in Guangzhou in 2009 and in Huangshi one year ago.

"Wu Yang and I are training partners, so we are familiar with each other`s tactics," Liu said.

"Wu Yang is very strong. Maybe I am more experienced than her since it is the third time for me to compete in the World Cup, but it is Wu Yang`s debut show."

Wu said she was overwhelmed by Liu both in technique and mentality.

"I hope in the future I can improve my attack tactics and serve more threatening shots," said Wu.

Meanwhile, Singapore`s Feng Tianwei secured the third place after overcoming Hong Kong veteran Jiang Huajun in 11-6, 13-11, 12-10, 11-2.
