Winning in Qatar 'A Pleasant Surprise' For Samsonov

Recently, Vladimir Samsonov showed that age in table tennis really does have no limits. I recall writing a blog on Table Tennis Master about 'Why Samsonov Will Last the Long Mile' and I wasn't far wrong. Vladi is looking as calm and collected as ever and still playing the same fluid, brilliant table tennis he always has.

A Timeless Legend of Table Tennis, Vladimir Samsonov

"I think I can still play well. At least I still believe I can beat the best" Samsonov had to say after the Qatar Open. He credits his ongoing success to the support of his wife and children, family, friends and his coach of the past 6 years V.Shubin from Russia.

After a string of great results, victory over Monteiro, Chuang and then Ovtcharov in the final, he is showing now sign of giving up, sighting future goals at the World Championships, European Championships and of course in his Club League Championships. There really is no saying how long Vladi could remain a top player in the world for, as he seems to be sustaining his level incredibly well!
