PING PONG IN THE U.S.: XINHUA reported that the Int'l Table Tennis Federation "plans to work with" Microsoft Corp. Chair Bill Gates to "promote table tennis in the U.S." ITTF President Adham Sharara said that "the initiative was brought up after Gates came to London" to watch Sunday's game between U.S. teen player Ariel Hsing and Chinese Li Xiaoxia. Sharara did not disclose the details but said that "Gates offered to help after watching Hsing's match," in which the 16-year-old girl nearly pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Olympic table tennis history, pushing No. 2 seed Li to the limit before losing 4-2 in six tight sets (XINHUA, 8/1).
