  • Milpitas Team won the 3rd place in the Chinese Table Tennis tournament on 7/15!
    • In the 3rd/4th team match against Lawton TT club from San Francisco, Sean Lee (2314) upset Wu Weiyang (2398) 3:1. Sean played brilliantly like a champion! He was down 2 game points in the second game but dueced it and won the game. I think 3 games went to deuce.
    • Henry Sit (1971) also held his ground after floundering 10 match points in the fourth game against Sally Su (2116) and won the game at 15:13! Yeah, you hear me right, 10 match points!:-)
    • Ming Zhang (2199)/Bruce Liu (2033) put up a good fight but fell short to pull another good upset against Wu Weiyang (2398)/Thomas Yeh (2070) and lost in the fifth.
    • Sean/Terry then beat Wayne Kuang/Sally Su in the deciding doubles to secure the win. They came back from down 2 game points to win the match!
