Ariel Hsing couldn’t repeat success of the two previous years at the table tennis US Nationals 2012 and fell against Lily Zhang in a close final match. Zhang gave no chance to Hsing at the beginning and won the first two games. Then Hsing fought back and managed to get the third game. Zhang came back into the game and took the fourth game. But Hsing didn’t surrender and managed to level at 3:3. Hsing kept a one and two points advantage during the deciding game but Zhang prevailed in the last rallies and clinched her first ever table tennis US National 2012 singles’s title. In the two previous years Zhang was defeated by Hsing in the final.
