Although i'd love to see Waldner win i must agree with NextLevel.
Kreanga is the one who still plays on the highest level and still scores very well. Will be interesting to see.

Yup Kreanga... Whats the criteria to join? Why isn't other any of the other players playing, like the previous Chinese players

Kreanga is the only one active player. He is taking scalps of to 50 players so I would be very surprised if he does not win it. Of course Waldner is Waldner.

Wow. So much experience in playing quality shots in one single room...
How many times have these guys been hitting balls all summed up? Must be millions i think.

Thanks for sharing.

I think it would be a nice idea to play first to 21 and with old 38mm balls, or at least 40mm cell balls!

Wow. Schlager's still got it. He made Kreanga misread the spin of his serves several times.
On the other hand Kreanga's backhand is still a killer.

the last backhand by Kreanga - wow,
