DORTMUND, Germany, March 25 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese women's squad began its journey of world team table tennis here on Sunday with an easy 3-0 victory over Belarus.

Chinese players Ding Ning, Li Xiaoxia and Guo Yue overwhelmed their rivals without losing a set.

"General speaking, I think the three players have shown good performance today," said Shi Zhihao, coach of the Chinese women squad told Xinhua. He also hoped that the players can gradually improve their form during the match.

"I am very nervous before the match because it's the first match in the table tennis team worlds and I am not familiar with the hall and the rival." Ding Ning, No. 1 on the world ranking, told Xinhua.

"After the match, I feel I displayed the normal form," she said.

The Chinese women's team lost its world title in Moscow two years ago, ending its 20-year unbeatable legend.

Ding said that these two years were really "good fortune" for her becasue she was once felt very depressed, but with the efforts and teammates' help she has walked out of it

"For me and for my team, we hope to win M Corbillon Cup back again," Ding noted.

However, for Shi, it's still too early to talk about the final result. He hoped players can beat opponents one by one.

"I think the Chinese team is determined to win every match. But talking about this is still too early. Today is the first match in the group," he said.
