LIEGE, Belgium, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- German veteran Timo Boll came back from 3-1 down to eliminate world and Olympic champion Ma Long of China through a seven-game thriller in ITTF Men's World Cup semifinals here on Sunday, booking an all-German final with No. 2 seed Dimitrij Ovtcharov.
The 36-year-old Boll Off White x Nike Air Max 97 Noir Pas Cher , winner in Liege in 2005, repeated his success of 4-3 against another Chinese paddler Lin Gaoyuan on Saturday evening.
"Every victory against a Chinese player brings me confidence. My level has been going higher and higher step by step," said Boll following his second straight huge comeback against Chinese paddlers.
Top seed Ma built a comfortable 3-1 lead after four games, only to see another shocking comeback from his German opponent.
"I had a very bad start again. It's hard to get used to the Chinese style. I was searching to try to find the rhythm, and I was really disappointed at the beginning," admitted Boll.
"I felt that I had good weapons today against a great player. Then I tried to fight. Maybe it's not his best day Off White x Nike Blazer Studio Mid The Ten Blanche Pas Cher , but you have to play against him to this point," he added.
Boll tied the score with 11-7, 11-5 in the following two games, before snatching two match points in the decider. Ma took two points in a row to force into a 10-all, but missed the next two to concede the match.
Boll will next face Ovtcharov later on Sunday, an encore of the ITTF China Open final late in June.
The Chinese paddlers were set to miss the top finish at the World Cup for the first time since 2009 after Vladimir Samsonov of Belarus.
In the other semifinal Off White x Nike Air Force 1 Low The Ten Blanche Pas Cher , Ovtcharov held off France's Simon Gauzy in full games.
MANILA, June 15 (Xinhua) -- The Philippine government lifted Thursday the moratorium on the deployment of overseas Filipino workers to Qatar.
Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III said the decision was reached following consultation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and upon recommendation of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO).
"This decision was arrived at on the advice of Foreign Affairs Secretary Allan Peter Cayetano and upon the recommendation of Qatar POLO following their assessment of the situation in the Gulf state," he said.
Bello said he was told that the situation in Qatar has normalized after some Arab states cut ties with the Gulf state for allegedly supporting terrorists. Qatar, however, denied the accusation.
The Labor chief said the Qatari authorities guaranteed the safety of around 240,000 Filipinos there and affirmed that they have the ability to withstand any possible economic shocks out of the diplomatic impasse with its neighboring Arab countries.
Bello ordered the temporary suspension in the deployment of Filipino workers to Qatar last week to secure the OFWs' welfare and security in case of any eventuality after some neighboring Arab states cut diplomatic ties with the Gulf state.
