Ding Song (Chinese: 丁松; pinyin: Dīng Sōng; born 1971) is a former male Chinesetable tennis player, he is famous due to his eccentric "modern defensive" style. He is best known for having defeated Peter Karlsson in the men's team final of the World Table Tennis Championships in 1995, thereby securing China's final victory. He also made it to the men's single semifinals before eventually losing to teammate Kong Linghui, who is skilled in defeating defensive players.
Ding Song is distinguished from other "traditional" defensive players by his unreasonably frequent and powerful counterattacks, almost as aggressive as offensive players, although sometimes he also confuses his opponents with oddly spinning chops just like other choppers.
He retired from the Chinese team after the 1997 WTTC due to his aging physical performance, but in recent years a video of him playing against Timo Boll is spread widely around the internet, in which he flawlessly returns Timo Boll's offensive smashes by chopping them, the rally lasting a full 49 hits.
