I'm on Dima on this one. Last time I saw his game he's on really good shape. I think it will be Dima vs FZD again in the finals. Also, I'll give a wildcard bet on Mizutani. He's also in great shape lately.

I am not so sure , his game still suffers from familiar weaknesses .. part of which is his physique ... you just cannot play backhand from the forehand side when you are so tall , he gets out of position because of over reliance on his backhand over the table flicks .. with the new ball which has less spin its turning out that banana flick isn't as effective as it was with the older ball and you need to have a solid forehand over the table serve receive ... he will suffer against players with good touch and control .. he was on cruise mode against Timo in the european championship , and Boll was able to come back to make to deuce on the 5th with smart play even when he was clearly getting overpowered by Dima ... power is not everything , you can see what happened in the other match when Kristian Karlsson played Samsonov , again the experience and the touch won .... based on how he is playing recently , in Korean open etc, I won't be too surprised if Timo makes a deeper run in WTTC than Dima

I will be happy if Dima will not succumb to some TOP30 dude along the way to eventually face CNT. Anyway, I hope that Xu Xin will advance to the finals at least to face Captain Long there. That should had happened two years ago, now is the time!

Why did Timo Boll slipped my mind? Shame on me. You are right Dima needs to play smarter in general and try not to push things, but still we can not deny the fact that his physique is at its best. It's easier to learn tactics and strategy than lift weights in the gym, at least for me. Boll on the other hand is slow, and I don't think he can handle any member of the CNT (ok, maybe Xu Xin or ZJK) but despite his wisdom of the game he still lacks power and speed. But that's just my opinion, I still acknowledge his Korean Open performance though, but will he be able to maintain it?

I'm a penholder myself and I really want a penholder to win the WTTC but the only two penholders in there seems like they are in a crisis.

Xu Xin is starting to be really predictable and seems like he's losing some of his power (too much wife time, maybe).

Wong Chun Ting on the other hand is very inconsistent and didn't show much of an improvement lately. And he should use his FH more often instead of forcing things with his RPB.

I think these older guys have made peaking at the right moment into an art form ... I remember heard in one of the interviews Schlager saying , I really don't need to practice 6-7 hours a day . I know what I need to do and how to peak.. check out how varied Vladi's performance was .. this year .. I am sure he was working on something ... I could see he was consistently making half long pushes against Kristian and forcing him to make weaker loops off the side of the tables .. so I really don't agree to your assertion that tactics / strategy is easier to learn compared to work in the gym ... the level at which these guys play is significantly different to us , to execute strategy at that level takes a different level of genius ... and you have to remember its not just learning new tactics , its the ability to quickly adapt to new tactics and coming up with solutions is what wins matches at this level ... adaptability and having layers of options are key .. kinda like Chess I guess ..

I think in general te gap between the chinese and the non chinese players is still way too high to see another world champion. in 2003 schlagers situation to win the wttc was incredible but compared to 2017 still way more to handle than now. the greatest disaster for cnt in the recent years just took place in the asian games when several players of the cnt got beaten by other korean and japanese players, but the greater problem is even if one is struggling onne time like fzd xx lg ml or zjk there are other 4 players in the draw who are still better oor at least as good as the rest of the world.

I d love to see dima and Timo go for the championchip even more timo has deserved to be crowned one time in his career with the title for all the years he definetly was in favor to win the trophy but didn t win because he didnt play his best in the right moments.

The only possibility i see is that there will be someone and beside the german players this would be anyone non chinese i will cheer for who is playing beyond his possibilities because of the crowd and the whole wttc surroundings. There are some guys who start to fly when the crowd is behind them and on the other side the mind game of the cnt players could get affected by that. The spectators could be the influence wo make the 5% difference to see maybe a non cnt player in the semis or even in the final to get that trophy every non cnt player has to improve by 2 classes up their level now or even more.

Still hoping for a good draw in the best case timo and dima going out of the way of lin gaoyuan in the first rounds and out of the way of ma long and fan zhendong till semis. dima xu xin and timo zjk would be pairings there is hope for a win i think.

mizu was way too much gambling and playing not agressive enough in the past but his performance in olympics against ma long was impressive, same by jung yeoung sik but both have struggled till then mizu against freitas in swizz and jung after his injurie first round at his local korean open.

wong is in style to beat xx once again or zjk if injured but if zjk is fine his blocking abilities too strong against penhold style, ma long and fzd still too good for him in my opinion.

exited to see panos he did very good the last weeks and is in great shape. unfortunately there will be no joo sae hyuk as it seems looking at the entries...

Although I want ZJK to win this and then rub his underwear in the umpire's face for a last controversial celebration, Ma Long will clinch it, I just cant see how anyone can beat him especially if ML takes the first set. FZD would be good news also, a start of a new rivarly maybe

The underwear part is so damn funny man !! I wish ZJK wins being a long time fan but chances looks slim.

I feel fzd is gonna take this one. I'm sure he has reached a level where his lack of experience is compensated by his hardwork and skill. He has proved himself by taking the golden ticket and also by winning the asian champs. As for his opponent in the finals, I can't say for sure. I think it would be ma long . I say this because after he lost to jeoung sangeun in asian champs, he is definitely going to prove himself in wttc

ΥΕah they will meet in the semifinal if everything goes as predicted, if ZJK gets the first set or its 1-1 ML is not performing full beast mode and gets restricted/conservative, it has happened in all of his tight matches which were important . ML plays 100% freely when he is up 2-0 and keeps stepping on the gas so its very difficult to overcome such a deficit. Same situation will be if FZD meets ma long in the final

You can't know that. Seed #3 + #4 are randomly distributed to #1 + #2 seeds. Ma Long will face either ZJK or Xu Xin.

If ZJK beats ML in semi, it will be like final for him. I think he defeated Ma Long last in Kuwait Open in an international match. what a moment that will be for ZJK fans. Sweeeet !!!

There seems to be hope for non-CNT players after the upsets at the recent Asian Championships. Perhaps because of the enormous pressure CNT puts on itself and the recent coaching changes? So the time for more upsets seem ripe with other nations seeing cracks in the armor.

On the other hand, CNT has tremendous resources and time to prepare. And no other players are as prepared as China. So my predictions are:

men: Ma Long/Fan Zhendong

foreign dark horse: Hugo Calderano (Why not? No one expected Jeong Sangeun to reach the finals at the Asian Championships. Whoever rises to the occasion is not always who you would expect. I'm just making a random guess.)

women: Liu Shiwen/Ding Ning

foreign dark horse: Miu Hirano (Of course she's not really unknown to the CNT, is she?)

It seems non chinese players are much closer now. Especially ladies Hirano Miu gave hard Times and beat all chinese girls, besides LSW.
Also all chinese men besides FZD lost lately to lower ranked players. At the same time Jun Mizutani is in superb form destroying timo boll in easy way. It seems he developed his game and his fh sidespin is really something I like to watch.
Everything depends on the main draw but I would love to see non chinese finals.

well even Timo mentioned in pressconference that Jun is on the Level of the chinese right now, but between timo and jun we have to look at the circumstances. this was nothing but a Training game cause Orenburg already won the Champions league after game one.
But all in all you re right I think he will be one contender to beat the chinese.

Hugo calderano is a good pick too for unestimated results. more complex Player than aruna and more Speed and agility than gauzy, so with a good draw i think he can make some upsets like in Rio.

Beside These guys I think if anyone can beat the chinese : Dima, Timo, woojin, sangeun, matsudeira, niwa (only the softer hitters like zjk) , lebesson, wong, jung, samsonov, gardos ( if he can Play like he used to), fegerl, chuang and Tokic.

freitas Apolonia good Players but too soft by playing style like gauzy to win such a game in my opinion.
Aruna if he improves more on backhand. he would probably a xu xin in penhold style :D

foreign dark horse: Miu Hirano (Of course she's not really unknown to the CNT, is she?)

Contrary to popular belief , Jun Mizutani has not been in great form until the finals of Champions League. He lost to Marcos Freitas very recently and he really has not played any CNT player in the recent past. Even in the CL final, he faced sub par fegerl and unmotivated TB. He also had some medical issues in recent past. So overall I have mixed opinion on Jun Mizutani's prospects.

Calderano however can spring a few surprises. Dima will choke as usual in the big stage. Sangeun's run in Asians was a fluke at best. He has no chance here. Woojin has a better chance to surprise us. I would closely follow harimoto tomokazu if he is playing the main draw. He can become a prospect as good as Hirano in the future.

FZD is N1

Garrison
05-22-2017, 06:33 AM
I wonder if FZD is strong enough mentally to be world champion. If Dima is in good shape we might see him challenging the chinese since his playstyle is good against them.

The biggest problem for non chinese is that I don't see anyone beating Ma Long. I see that someone can upset ZJK, XX, maybe even FZD but I don't see anyone beating the dragon

Xu xin is probably the one that can beat ML. FZD can beat him as well if he's on the point with his close to table fast counters

Nobody can beat FAN Zhendong this time I think.

This tournament is in Germany. I think there will be a few surprises and some Chinese players will be upset. Hirano has seeded some doubts among all Chinese players and given some courage to their opponents. However there are five Chinese in both singles events so difficult to see a non Chinese winning.

Among Chinese I think FAN is too strong.
If ZJK is not injured he can also fight for the title

I think the same.
this guy lost not one game against non cnt in the last 5 years until asian championchips just because he lost one game and maybe 1 or in the preparation (and won about 10) people think fzd is the favorite now. I don t say he isnt able to win wttc he definetly is and if fzd fails it wont be because he was too nervous or ready for the title this guy is training against these guys everyday won the german open at age 16 just became asian games champion and is multiple national champion and a pro for life, this is not a guy who is to anxious or too nervous for a title like that not having this title makes him just more dangerous. but all in all if we look at the results even at the results 5-6 months ago ma long is still the better player one failed tournament in advance wont change that, and besides of that they didnt even meet in one of the tournaments.

but we will see a clash between the cnt and even xx might have a chance or zjk. I hope for a non CNT player but being realistic i would be very happy to see a german/european/non cnt player beat one of those guys just once at wttc.

The big difference is that in internal tournaments, they have coaches by their side. In international tournaments, they do not. That is why FZD struggles against ML internationally, he doesn't have a coach to reassure him on the tactical and psychological front. Whether this tournament or the new balls is the tipping point is hard to be sure of in advance. But against every other player, FZD is unbeatable.

i think by statistics youre right with what you mentioned if we look at fzd score at chinese super league, national cc, internal events he won like everything where hes been coached.
but i dont think that the impact is that high and beside of that they playin each other so often and i dont thin they are changing tactics so much in different games. everybody knows who s struggling with which balls. i'd say it s

I agree that CNT players play so often against each other that coaching them against each other should not have any great impact on the outcome. But ML still has upper hand on FZD in international arena. Does that mean ML has a hidden 'A' game which he intentionally does not expose when they are practicing against other CNT guys. I think they do have some special tricks/variations that they only bring to table at the biggest stage !!

I think that there may also be the fact of motivation. what happened to zjk I think is part of what happened to ma long after the 2016 rio cycle ended. they dont want to loose neither they even really deliberately play worse its just the will that leads to get the last 5-10% that is not there in every game they play. I don't know any other sportsman with a result score like ma long in the past 4 years this is like federer djokovic and murray combined thinking of other sports.

i'm pretty sure there wont be a Ma Long like the one we have seen at asian games or at the trials. he mentioned before his departure that he is already a bit nervous, it s his first time defending the title, hell probably be ready for whatever till next monday.

id be pretty amazed seeing one non cnt player catching the heat of the crowd and fighting on that level against the dragon.
i d definetly go crazy on my place next week :D

Sorry but in my opinion I see no way for tiago to beat a chinese player. Beside the fact that all in all he is not the very stable in his performance at all, even losing against 100+ ranked players from time to time his A game is just to soft and his recent results like the 0:3 against timo don t show me that he is in a new and better condition. In the world ranking he is in top 30 and even top 20 for a while but players like gardos, lebesson, fegerl who are most the time behind tiago have more chance to get a shot at a big win. tiago is 0:2 down against zjk and 0:3 against xx head to head winning like 5 sets in 5 games. I really like watching tiagos playing style many spectacular rallies from half distance, but from the point of effectiveness he can beat guys like gauzy or niwa who are higher ranked but not the chinese dudes they kill him with this playing style.
I think mizutani is a good example for this changing his playing style in the last year more forward to the table not playing so much defense and now gets way better results than before. it s sad but with the beutiful playing style away from the table you dont win any big trophies.

Younsik has no chance to beat ML. In fact his game is too soft to trouble anybody in CNT except ZJK. I would rather give an outside chance to Lee Sangsu or Jang Woojin to enforce an upset against CNT.

I think Mizutani and Ovtcharov will cause a major upset. I think its time for them to perform well on the big stage.

Would be nice to see this semi final matches:

Ma Long vs Jun Mizutani

It will not surprise me if Ovtcharov meets Ma Long. He always seems to meet him early on.

Zhang Jike to keep his mental and make a deep run too.

What if the ball did not break in middle of that fateful point could have had a lasting impact on CNT. Lets hope Dima produces similar level of play.

Wang Liqins prime was like 2005-2007 and the game you were talking about was a 4:3 for tiago in 2009 this is 8 years away from now. Tabletennis has changed a lot since then. Even Schlager said in an interview couple of years ago he was playing better in the years after 2003 than when he became wttc champion, and that is because the game has changed so much in terms of physical strength.
I know he s a threat to probably any player of the world but if he beats ma long fzd or xx in the wttc and youre attending it s free beer on me for you :D

Yeah mate, anything's possible, but i bet if you would have followed this year's TTBL season you probably wouldn't say so.
Tiago has been underperforming almost throughout the whole season with quite an awful lot of unexpected losses. So i would say the chances are quite slim for him to challenge the CNT players, even though i hope he proves me wrong!

Then there is a further 32 players directly entered into the main draw. (64 and 32 = 96)
The rest of the round of 128 is then made up of the players that win in the qualification rounds on monday and Tuesday .

Liu Shiwen got Chen Meng and Zhu Yuling, but can only meet one of them :)
Hirano Miu has to beat (probably) Doo Hoi Kem and then Feng Tianwei in order to meet Ding Ning.
That would be awesome!
Kasumi will meet Ding earlier if beating Sato Hitomi.

I hope that Xu Xin will be in the half of Ma Long and Zhang will be in half of Fan, because I think Zhang vs. Fan would be much more interresting than Xu Xin vs. Fan..

YES YES YES!!!
So Zhang Jike is 65 with Fan Zhendong and Xu Xin is 64 with Ma Long.
of course if no upsets, the quarters seems to be:
Ma Long vs. Timo Boll,
Jun Mizutani vs. Xu Xin,
Zhang Jike vs. Wong Chun Ting
Dima Ovtcharov vs. Fan Zhendong :)

Looks like an easier road for zhang jike(as he is set to play WCT, and honestly i dont think hes on the same level). And, typically Zhang Jike does better against Fan Zhendong than Ma Long, but we will see his physical condition.
Xu xin looks in trouble...maybe jun mizutani can pull off another upset like the olympics(it's possible)? He is also gonna play Lin Gaoyuan, who is a dangerous player for anybody.

Let's go Mizutani!

...and people in charge of wanting this sport to be taken seriously. I was checking out
some of the singles games they have up there online.

A snooker table is a little less than 12 feet by 6 feet. A TT table is 9 feet by 5 feet. Similar size. I would like to see the
reaction of world snooker championship viewers if you put the camera up in the sky like that and
filmed the games from that far away. All of what makes TT dynamic is removed from this
perspective. You are also only using 50% of the frame at that zoom length.

WOW! Incredible sportsmanship by Ionescu and Crisan! 13-13 in 7th set, the umpire gives the point to the romanians but Groth does not agree, Ionescu quickly tells them umpire to give them the point. I think the argumentation was about the serve being on the wrong side but I am not sure.

3-3 in sets, 13-13 on the scoreboard, they get a point they shouldn't have (14-13), they walk over to the ref and set the record straight. On the next point, they unluckily push the ball into the net. Still, those are winners!

More like a default after a no show, I would think. Understandable to a certain extent to see that happen in the mixed doubles, if one or both of the players has progressed to the singles tournament as well. Scheduling conflicts with, or players choosing to save their energy for, the singles — or non-mixed doubles, even.

The match commentator kept on saying Mu Zi should have been seeded at #10 or higher, and by lacking of that, came from qualification she'll cause disruption to the order. Look forward for more disruption :D ha ha ha... unfortunate for those crossing on her path to higher stage... just imagine, some just thought, damn it, how can a qualifier plays like that...

PISTEJ Lubomir just kicked JYS's ass, 4:1.

You could only imagine how happy mizutani must be right now that he doesn't have to face JYS anymore. He's probably the biggest threat from downhill as mizutani seems to have a hard time playing against JYS

I think he was affected by Liventsov's accusation that the ball touched his shirt, and the ref just gave the point to Liventsov but Wong didn't think it touch.

I tuned in too late for that point I think. Happy that WCT won in the end. I grant every underdog his win but it usually results in lower quality matches in later rounds

Rather weird that CCTV-5 air the table 1 continuously while neglect other tables involving the Chinese players :cool: I ain't interested to watch the nail polishing color of the Szocs, the media-significant player but not the play level itself... a player having too much awareness on own appearance like a celeb ;)

I'm finding it difficult to watch these championships. Firstly because in the UK it's only available online - irritating and inconvenient, can't see the ball unless I plug the laptop into the TV. Secondly because the ridiculous foreshortening makes the tables look square and makes it look like the umpire and scorer are in the next state ! I would say "is this the best ITTF can do ?" but I think I already know the answer !

MU Zi's adventure still continues... just passed a formidable opponent from Chinese Taipei, CHENG I-Ching through a nail-biting match involving many exciting FAST rally exchanges between the two players. Cheng has dangerous FH. From TT POV this match should have been staged on Table 1 (the TV Table) i/o the LIU Jia vs Bernadette Szocs one. LIU Jia will see another ROU player in R32.

In R32 MU Zi will see LI Qian

Does anyone know why Eurosport are not bothering to cover this event? They always used to support and show the World Championships. It's a massive disappointment.

Also, I'm curious to know what European countries are broadcasting this event on their normal TV channels? I guess Germany and France will have it covered. Any others?

Does anyone realize that China has NOT fielded any full indigenous pair of XD, just crossed-country ones, in the WTTC? And this already happened at least since two years ago (to my remembrance). Thing is still better in MD, aside from a crossed-country pair, China also fields own full pair.

Anyone knows the story behind this lack of full XD? Avoiding the clean sweep comes into my head immediately, max attainable result is 4.5 :D 0.5 discount!

Yes both outcomes are some kind of upsets!

So Kenta lost that R128 match eventually... watched the early sets 2-2 before switching eyes to other match then forgot to check its result. Daniel was quite aggressive in that match, more often he took initiatives to attack Kenta, no wonder he won.
