So Timo Boll is in Wang Hao's half of the draw. This is Timo Boll's best chance to make the final I feel! However he could meet Oh Sang Eun on route!

Dang, if Maze wins his first match he'll meet Mizutani :( Not a good draw lol.

Oh will need a good form to beat Marcos Freitas, whom he will face in his first match xD

Zhang - Joo, Dima -Jun, Boll - Chuang, Wang - Oh will be the quarterfinals if everything goes according to rankings xD

Looks like Wang has a tough draw anyway xD first match against Schlager, then against Tokic/Gao Ning.

True, I think Wang Hao will edge passed them tho. Will be close! I am interested in Joo Se Hyuk, he could do some amazing things here!

Hi; there was a guy in Facebook commenting that he was unhappy as Koki Niwa is not participating in the singles; I wanted to ask this: Who is in best shape: Koki Niwa or Seiya Kishikawa? The last time I heard something about Seiya was for winning the Japan Open (2011?) and Koki won against Ma Long...

The last time I heard something about Seiya was for winning the Japan Open (2011?) and Koki won against Ma Long...I'd rather watch Koki Niwa as well, but Koki Niwa was ranked lower than Kishikawa at the time of entries. Which is probably why Kishikawa is playing. And don't forget that Koki Niwa has no experience with big tournaments like the WTTC or Singles World Cup yet. Timo has a nice draw. Tang Peng, Crisan, Chuang, and Wang Hao on his way. Could've been much worse. Look at Zhang Jike, he has to play Samsonov, Joo and Mizutani. xD

i have olympic tickets for the women's team quarter finals but my home country is on the other side of the draw. Is there any way to swap these tickets (a face value)?

Truly agree. Personally I have much interest in Korea DPR - Korea REP because just a while ago they released a movie about them working as one delegation on a table tennis tournament back then. imdb.*om/title/tt2328503/ (Just understand that I'm a new user, can't post link, I'm sure you know what to do. :))
