No, sadly not :(

Participation rules are the same as at the Olympics, so only two players/pairs per national association can enter the individual events.

I don't know why the Japanese association didn't select any of their top players for the Asian Games, but basically sent their B-team (men) or even C-team (women) in stead? :confused:

Maybe some of our Asian speaking friends in the forum can help us figure this out? :)

Also, very noteworthy the CNT has prioritized the young players for this event: none of the senior players (read: Olympic champions Ma Long, Zhang Jike, Xu Xin, Ding Ning and Liu Shiwen) are present in Indonesia.

It will be interesting to see how the young-ish Chinese players are able handle the pressure on their own...

excellent blog

Japan's women team lost 2-3 to PRK. Not surprising given its their C team there. Minami ANDO could have set up Japan for an upset as she won against the Rio Bronze medalist chopper KIM Song I, but team leader Miyu KATO lost against her; and the 3rd Japan player Miyu MAEDA lost to a KIM Nam Rae.

btw, Singapore has no Men's team. I know old fatty GAO Ning is their best player and they don't stand a chance, but many small nations are there, so WTF is going on ?

JNT are more tuned to aggragating ranking points at this time.
as explained earlier by Miyasaki, since the alotment for the Olympics for JNT will be based on world rankings in January 2020, positioning is everything, beginning in 2019. Seeding in tournaments, based on WR, will be thus affected too.
A win at the Asian Games garners only 1050 pts, whereas in an Open will get 1800. Even getting to R16 will get 1080 pts at an Open. Internal competition for the 2 Singles, as well as the third position in Team is fierce.
So they traded Asian Games for Bulgaria & Czech Op.

According to this article
http://number.bunshun.jp/articles/-/831724

the criterion for selecting the athletes for individual competition for Tokyo Olympics will be the ITTF ranking in 2020

Thus top players are all fighting for their ranking. 2018 ITTF opens don't matter directly for the 2020 ranking calculation, but the higher the ranking, the higher the chances of being seeded, and with their stupid ITTF ranking system, even losing in the 1st round as a seed gets you a lot of points. As a matter of fact, the Asian Games award much less points (1080 max) than the Czech Open (1800 points max).

Given the situation, i don't understand why the JTTA, to put all athletes on the same feet didn't just do some or all of the following:
- forbid players to participate in Czech / Bulgaria Open
- call players for the Asian Games and exclude from the team those who answer negatively (without a decent excuse like injury)
- if Asian Games seem less important and they want to give everyone their chance, make an internal selection tournament

Now just look at the team from Japan: Kenta Matsudaira, Jin Ueda, Masaki Yoshida. If lucky they'll get bronze, but they stand no chance of course against China, but also against South Korea. Not sure if they can beat HK, Taipei, India or even PRK either.

The Women's Team is even worse: Miyu Kato, Minami Ando, Miyu Maeda.

Japan had a (albeit small) chance for gold in both M and W if they fielded their best teams. The Asian Games are not as prestigious as the Olympics or WTTC, still a medal there would be remembered and its not like there are many opportunities to win medals.

Also this time China has a strong but a little bit unexperienced team. A few years ago, Ai FUKUHARA snapped one of her few wins [still much much better than ISHIKAWA ever achieved] against China beating Ding NING in the Asian Games 2014 3-1.

TLDR: ANGRY :mad:

Women's QF results

China Japan 3-0
Singapore - Korea 1-3
HK - India 3-1 ---> was a tighter match than it seems
Taipei - PRK 1-3

As expected Japan is out without any glory, losing against China isn't a disaster, but they met China in QF because they lost to PRK in group phase, which should not have happened with their A team.

Japan is down 0-2 against India, Gnanasekaran beats Ueda 3-0 and Achanta beats Matsudaira 3-0
a subpar performance from the Japanese B team and the exit is really near now...

Indians are an improved bunch. Sometime back ( dont remember which tournament) they put up a brave fight against JNT A team. Sharat Kamal is a maverick player. On his day he can blast anyone. Well done indeed. I could nor imagine 2-3 years back that a team like India can beat Japan in a major event. Kudos to people who are managing and improving TT in India.

Ueda did well for Japan at the World Cup, giving the win against Korea, and deserved his spot, but this match shows why he shouldn't be called again.

I don't understand why Japan chose this team. If they couldn't get the A team, they should have chosen the promising very young players instead. It made no sense at all to put this team.

Acutaly India has beaten Japan more than once before (back in and it'd good on them that they won as many other countries won't stand a chance against this Japan.

I agree on sending junior players though. Uda, Kidukuri and even Matsushima would've been a good experience for them.

Very strange!

LSS plays like amateur against LGY, scoring 3-11,3-11,2-11, even though he had great records against LGY.

It seemed like he didn't play well against North Korea either yesterday.

I think he may have gone through something.

2 games lost in MT and 1 game in WT finals. Without ML/XX or DN/LSW. Chinese dominance is going to end soon.
Unfortunately it’s still going to be an Asian dominance, with Korea and Japan (in that order) in the mix. At least on the Men’s side, the yawn can be stifled for a bit longer.
Nothing much changes on the Women’s.
There’s simply no chance for Europeans, North & South Americans, Oceania to reach semi-finals with any regularity, on the women’s side specially. It’s approaching ‘what’s the point’ for further WORLD competition involvement there.

Japan didn't send any of their best players. This result is to be expected. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Japan gave up on the Asian games due to the pitiful amount of points it rewards for table tennis. That's why the top Japanese players are at Czech open instead.

Since ITTF prize money is not something players can sustain with, the world tour and points are just meaningless. All Asian pro players are supported by their TT boards and national pride of getting medals is of utmost priority. Was it a goof up or intentional ?? It is a known fact that CNT does not give much damn about world tour events. I was hoping for a Harimoto vs FZD finals here.

zeio
08-30-2018, 07:56 AM
No, the change was first requested by the players. They wanted a system that deducted less points after a loss and after some work the ITTF came up with what we have now.

As things stand, multi-sports games are not worth the time to attend anymore. That's why ATTU and ETTU complained.

9. Any other business
9.1 WR points for Continental Events
Mr. Masahiro Maehara asked the EC to reconsider the WR point allocation for the continental results given the discrepancy between the level of the continental events. The CEO informed Mr. Maehara that if the continental representatives prefer, an official request from the Continental bodies should be received, as ATTU and ETTU were asking ITTF to increase the continental points originally. With an Official Request, the ITTF will reconsider the point allocation.

9.2 Separation by Associations Mr. Maehara also asked to reconsider the current rule of no separation per association in the first round of the World Tour.
The CEO, informed that after receiving various complaints the Competition Department will be considering this proposal in the future.

In case people are not aware, the race for Tokyo has officially started at the WTTC 2018. The points accrued in the World Championship last 2 years, that is, until April, 2020. That is a huge advantage, seeing there is a set limit of points a player can accrue now.

Well to be fair the Japanese players had to play Fzd and LGY in the quarterfinal to get a medal and they actually did ok, whereas the Iranian guy just had to beat a not so on form WCT.

THE SAD REALITY OF TODAY. PINGPANG OFF VOGUE IN CHINA

You seem to have but a scarce knowledge about this person. Noway is he a fan of pingpang, his supreme passion is soccer, bridge gambling and basketball. In today's China, the young all play street basketball, and rural youth play basketball only.
PingPang is just a seniors' pastime in China, and childish play for little kids. In today's PRC , pingpang is not a "trendy sport" any more.

1 September 2018 (Day 7)

FAN Zhendong (CHN) after defeating LIN Gaoyuan (CHN) 4-2 to win the Men’s Singles title:

“The feeling of winning is of course really great, but the process is definitely easy. I did face a lot of difficulty in both the Team & Singles events, and it’s not as easy as it appears to be.”

“I played well today, and made little unforced errors, especially in the first two games, I was indeed affected after losing the third game, in fact I felt a bit lost in the 4th game and he was able to keep his winning momentum in that game.”

“The chance of playing a multi-sport event is rare for us because it happens only every 4 years, just like the Olympics, I think it’s important to experience this feeling of playing such an event, and being able to withstand the pressure to win is an especially important take-away for me.”

LIN Gaoyuan:
“I think I played well in this match, the reason why I lost in the end is probably because I wasn’t as detailed and firm when it comes to the crucial moments.”

“Winning the third game gave me hope, if I had lost that, I could have easily lost the entire match, but I wasn’t able to seize the opportunity after 2-2, he still handled the situation better than me at the end.”



WANG Manyu (CHN) after defeating CHEN Meng (CHN) 4-3 to win the Women’s Singles title:

“The third game where we played till 14-16 was important, I think whoever won that game will have an easier time for the rest of the match. After losing that game, I was angry at myself, but I have no way back and my only way out is to continue fighting point by point. At 1-3 down, I still kept my calm and never gave up, in my mind, as long as the match is not over, I have my chance to come back.”

“I hurt my back in the semifinals, so it’s important for me to recover from that and get ready for the Chinese National Championships coming up, so I won’t be celebrating this victory much.”

“I’m happy with winning the title, it’s certainly a confidence boost for me. It’s not an easy journey for me, and I would never have achieved what I have achieved today without my parents. They have done a lot for me, and I think this is a good way to repay them.”

CHEN Meng:
“I think I played well overall, but Manyu played better towards the latter of the match. after leading 3-1, I started to play safe, and certainly the penalty (for time wasting) in the 6th game affected me. When our level of play is so close, each point makes a big difference.”

“Of course it’s a pity to lose in the final, but I still learnt a lot throughout the Asian Games.”



WANG Manyu (CHN) after defeating YU Mengyu (SGP) 4-1 in the Women’s Singles Semifinals:

“This is my first time in the semifinals of such a major singles event, so I was certainly nervous before the match, but luckily the results turned out favourable. The first three games were relatively easier, but in the fourth game, I was over confident, trying to win each point fast. After that game, my coach told me to be more patient and be firm in implementing the strategies on court.”



LIN Gaoyuan after defeating Noshad ALAMIYAN (IRI) 4-0 in the Men’s Singles Semifinals:

“The first game was very difficult, his backhand and serves are quite unique and I wasn’t used to it. After winning the first game, it was easier in the next three games.”

“I’ve now completed my task assigned by our team to make it into the final, so there’s no mental burden on me anymore in the final. Against Fan Zhendong, I have been some wins & losses, of course I hope to win the Gold medal, and I will just play my best without pressure.”



FAN Zhendong (CHN) after defeating LEE Sangsu (KOR) 4-1 in the Men’s Singles Semifinals:

“The fourth game was crucial to the overall victory, both of us made some mistakes during that game, but I was able to take advantage of my serves to take the last 2 points. Winning that game to lead 3-1 was crucial ”

“I do have a winning record over Lee Sangsu in the past, but he was playing very well today, attacking aggressively in the match and giving me pressure throughout.”

“I’ve noticed Noshad Alamiyan from a long time ago, I think the level of other Asian players are catching up with the Chinese, and there are more strong players coming from other countries like Iran, India for example.”

“I have a strong desire for the title here, so no matter who I’ll face in the finals later, I’ll put in full effort to fight for Gold.”

LEE Sangsu:
“It’s a very tough match as I expected, Fan Zhendong is a top player, number one in the world right now, I was just fighting point by point in the match.”

“I’m really thankful to the fans who came down to support me today.”





31 August 2018 (Day 6)

Noshad ALAMIYAN (IRI) after defeating WONG Chun Ting (HKG) 4-1 in the Men’s Singles Quarterfinals:

“This is the second Singles Bronze medal for Iran, after 52 years. I’m so happy, too many plans have been done for us to get here by my country.”

“This is not by chance, we have done so much, I have trained so hard to get here, to reach the medal. I had the aim, this goal in my mind and now I have done it. This is my best result I have ever had.”



LEE Sangsu (KOR) after defeating CHUANG Chih-Yuan (TPE) 4-2 in the Men’s Singles Quarterfinals:

“I was very nervous in the match and there were a lot of pressure, but as the match progressed, it was better, I was attacking more and tried to calm myself down and finally I was able to win.”

“Next match against Fan Zhendong will be tough, he’s a world class player and one of the best players in the world, so tomorrow I have to play point by point and not overthink.”

So why table tennis players are so popular and have a huge influence among people in china ?

Ping pong is the national sports of China. And China will do whatever to make sure it is dominating force in World TT. It is a question of national pride for them. Thats why it has a lot of influence.

CHINA PUBLIC SPORTS : PLAYING PINGPANG COST YOU A LOT OF MONEY.

http://www.asianews.it/news-en/Xi-Jinping-wants-50,000-football-schools-by-2025-39841.html


China’s Xinhua news agency said that the country had 13,381 “special football schools” – which are typically attached to public primary and middle schools. The goal is making China a football powerhouse.

Football is now widely cultivated in China's many schools, no payment needed. And there are no "pingpang schools". If you wish your child to play the game, you have to enter your kid to a training center for money, some 150 USD money charge per month. There are some 1200 payed centers all over China. No wonder, the youngsters all would take up football, rather than pingpang.

(I like the part of Prause's TTD podcast where he reveals how disappointed he was when he discovered that the Chinese secret was just that: hard, hard work)
