US Junior Girls Team defeats the Canadians 3-1 in the Finals


2010 ITTF Junior Circuit’s Ecuador Open,Guayaquil, ECU, Sept. 8-12, 2010

                             by Lily Yip, US Junior Team Coach

In the setting of sunny Ecuador, a country full of natural beauty and biodiversity, Ariel Hsing continued her winning ways winning three Gold and one Silver Medals. Once again she demonstrated why she is North America's premier cadet player.  She dominated her opponents to win the Pan Am Cadet Challenge Qualification Event. In the finals Ariel she defeated Caroline Kumahara from Brazil in four straight games. Congratulations Ariel! 

In the Finals of the Cadet Girl's Singles Ariel Hsing again defeated Caroline Kumahara of Brazil 3:2 to win the Gold Medal. 

In the Finals of the Junior Girls' Singles Ariel Hsing mounted a gutsy and thrilling comeback only to be edged out by the #32 World-ranked Woman, Kasumi Ishikawa from Japan, 3:4. Ariel was trailing 0:3 in games then tied it at 3:3, but the seventeen year old's experience gave her the victory 4:3.  Gracious in defeat, Ariel gave credit to a worthy opponent for her excellent placement, spin variations, and services. However, throughout the match Ariel demonstrated that her training in  China, Singapore , plus her YOG experience gave her good fundamental training, match experience, and mental development. Consequently, Ariel put it all together to freely play her signature attacking style without being inhibited by the pressure of playing a world-class player. Furthermore, Ariel herself played like a world-class Woman's player.

As for our Junior Girls Team, we won the Gold. In the Finals, our team of Ariel Hsing, Lily Zhang, Erica Wu, and Anne Deng dominated the Canadians 3:1.
