It is interesting that CNT sends Zhang Jike and Xu Xin to the competetion. Are they deciding on the second spot?

These are my thoughts exactly, I'm hoping ZJK puts in a good performance!

So far he has won 3-0, 3-0 - hopefully he can maintain this!!

Who would you prefer to win?

I definitely want Xu Xin to win and get picked for Rio, not because I have anything special against ZJK but for a penholder like me it would be very sad to see no penholders in the Olympics this summer.

Seems like the penhold grip is getting less and less popular..
Any results?
I saw Ito Mima being 2 games each with Feng Tianwei, but didnt catch the end of the final game..
I saw now Xu Xin won some match 3:1 against some Chang Hung Chieh or somewhat like that, lol..

Where it will be live on youtube?

I will cross my fingers for Xu Xin. I don't want penhold and the reckless all-forehand style to die...

Although I personally love to see XX win and go to Rio to play single, but unless ZJK is seriously ill, the fight between ML and ZJK is too epic to miss. After all it is Grand Slam history in the making.

I hope i can get ready quick so i can go there before XX game, i have about 1 hour and a half, not sure if i can make it to there as i will leave in about 1 hour or 50 minutes at least.

At least i may have a chance to catch Jun Miz. game, i like this player too, but let's see what i can catch, and i will stay there maybe until around 15:15 as i will go to another place to play table tennis that they will start at 16:00, hope i can enjoy watching any of this Asian Cup games.

By the way, now i am watching live on TV with our local channel the game of Liu Shiwen, but need to have a quick shower, lol.

Surprise loss for Mizutani, but good win for WCT!

ZJK results are looking steady, as are those of XX.

Looking forward to a good final between these two, assuming everything keeps going as smooth as it is.

Chuang Chih Yuan is out, now this is a surprise but relief for XX I imagine!

You can find it by searching "Asian Cup 2016 ITTF" and you should see it there.

It is on the ITTF Channel.

Hope this helps!

Does anybody know whether the winner of this tournament is going to qualify for the Olympics? I thought Fan Zhendong, being number 2 in the world after Ma Long, would automatically qualify. Interesting how Olympics rules change every time. Sad we won't get to see all the top 4 chinese players compete at the olympics.

Honestly speaking, i didn't watch Olympics 2008[in China] or 2012[in UK], not table tennis though, so i really don't care if China will have 1-2 players or 10, at the end it is China no doubt, who will be just wait and see.

I'm really curious who will be n.2 single player for china at rio. ZFD vs XX i guess.

I think LGL deems FZD too inexperienced to take such a huge title + he is so young that he will have more chances at taking the olympic gold. My impression is that China really wants to send ZJK for the possibilty of a double grand slam, he does seem to excel in the big events, but he doesn't seem in top shape. So my hypothesis is that if they don't send ZJK they will send XX, with Ma Long being the given.

That would be really unfair for XX though as he just won against ZJK.

Congratulations Xu Xin! ANy highlights TTlondon? :cool:

.. And you think the CNT coaches would make decision based on the outcome of one match ? Its their prerogative on who to send and believe me they know more than you or me on who deserves to go the olympics

That would be really unfair for XX though as he just won against ZJK.

I was there, not that much good atmosphere, but better than some competitions where you see it nearly empty from audience or people, not sure i will attend again if another TT tournament will be in Dubai, not worthy, and good i just attended only the finals, no need to waste time on another games, even i didn't watch that 3rd/4th men singles game when i arrived in the middle of the game.

Good luck for another asian countries rather than China in table tennis events.

The Finals are on youtube and Men's Final starts at about 2:48:00. Should not miss the match of WCT vs GN for 3rd. A more exciting game to watch I believe.
