I don't get the joke. If you wrote 26, i would have thought: all the Non-Chinese players !

To continue the joke I would say that Bulgaria, with a population less than New York city, is the best TT country with the same number of players WR 150-350 as the total USA.

The first four women in this list of notable jumps in the women's list are as a result of both 2017 and 2018 Women's World Cups being valid for one month. They overlap because it was held in October last year and September this year. Those players will rebound downwards in the October list, along with other players present in both WWCs who didn't outdo their 2017 position with this year's result. I haven't checked yet, but Lay Jian Fang is likely among the highest ranked Australians in history. It's not particularly accurate with the WWC points overlapping like this, a rule change is needed to limit World Cup results to 1 per 12 months or expiring upon next WWC attendance.

I hope I can get the full data, to calculate the more accurate table tennis ranking (https://pingsunday.com/emratthich-table-tennis-world-ranking-system/). But unfortunately, the Export function on ITTF is disabled now.

"Ma Long drops to number 6, Timo moves back up to number 2, Lin Gaoyuan hits a career high of 3 and Fan Zhendong retains his world number 1 status!"

Huh? Boll is shown as #3, Lin Gaoyuan is #5.
