Playing Style

A right-handed shakehand-grip player, Fan plays an attacking style of table tennis using his explosive footwork and thunderous forehand loops to finish off his opponents. Emerging as a 16-year-old wonderkid, Fan’s playing style is often compared to his senior compatriot Ma Long. His encounters against senior players in the Chinese national team drew much speculation and anticipation. His fearlessness and technique allow him to challenge highly-rated, experienced players, sometimes even beating top, top players in thrilling style.
