I've recently picked up Table Tennis (casually) and over holiday break watched the 2012 Olympic singles gold medal match between Zhang and Wang on YouTube.
In the 4th set, there was a confusing point where Zhang had a decent scoring opportunity but suddenly eased up and didn't take it, then the two players traded a couple lazy returns before Wang let Zhang score. See the video:
(The set begins at 47m 47s. I think embedding is disabled for this video, so here's a link to that timestamp.)
That was a weird exchange for me to see, and the commentators were confused too. Is there a back-story on what happened there?

I think Hao hit the ball off his shirt, which both players realised, so they stopped playing the ralley.
