This 41-Shot Exchange Might Be the Greatest Ping Pong Moment in the Sport's History

For good reason, this is being hailed as one of the greatest ping pong rallies of all-time. Segun Toriola (Nigeria) makes several unbelievable, acrobatic defensive saves before Ning Gao (Singapore) makes an unforced error to cap the 41-shot exchange. As a table tennis enthusiast, I’d put this rally right up there with the memorable Jimmy Connors rally at the US Open in 1991, with two exceptions: Connors hit a tremendous backhand winner down the line; Connors, playing in New York, had a raucous crowd behind him.
