    Background: The World Cup table-tennis championships reached an exciting climax in Hong Kong on October 9. the losing semi-finalists, Istvan Jonyer of Hungary and Xie Saike of China fought a hard match in the third place play-off. The final, watched by a capacity crowd of 1,700, saw victory for the second time of the World's number one, Guo Yue-Hua of China. He beat Sweden's European Champion, Mikael Applegren, 22-20, 21-5, 21-9. He first won the cup in 1980, and regained it in a match that netted him the biggest first prize awarded in table tennis - 15,000 dollar (US). Although Applegren put up a fight in the first game, taking the twenty-six-year-old Chinese to 22-20, he had little left to offer, and Guo Yue-Hua won the next two games with ease. An enthusiastic crowd watched as Guo accepted the trophy surrounded by the Chinese team.
