After the Olympics, players set of to the Czech and the Harmony China Open World Tour. The biggest jump among the elite top 10 was made by former World Number 1 of China Wang Liqin. Throughout the 21st century Wang Liqin has stood inside the top 10 rankings never falling out. Huge progress was seen by fellow compatriot Hao Shuai. In February 2007, Hao was ranked world no.7 however dropped to no.19. After the China Open with incredible successes over Timo Boll, Vladimir Samsonov and Wang Liqin, Hao is now back to world number 13.

The Chinese household of Zhang Jike, Ma Long, Xu Xin and Wang hao fill the top four positions of the world. Team mate Ma Lin who reached the semi final of the China Open losing closely to Wang Liqin has jumped from position 6 to 5. Japan's Jun Mizutani drops to no.7 followed by Germany's Timo Boll and Dimitrij Ovtcharov maintaining their seventh and ninth positions.

Likewise, no change for the elite Koreans as Joo See Hyuk and Oh Sang Eun retain their 11th and 12th positions respectively. Chinese Taipei's Chuang Chih Yuan drops two places to no.10 to make way for Wang Liqin.

The new Women's World Rankings display only 2 changes in the top 12. Kim Kyungah formerly at no.8 swaps places with Japan's Kasumi Ishikawa to no.5. No other change took place in the top 12 women's rankings

What do you all think of the new world rankings? Will Zhang Jike ever leave the top spot? Could Xu Xin ever break into the top 2? Remember, the Russia Open has begun maybe we might see some changes! Let's discuss!

Bai He made some serious upsets in Olomouc at Czech open ;)
He beat Tomas Konecny 4:0 first round, Wang Zengyi 4:2, then the biggest surprise he beat Chan Kazuhiro 4:3! That was a close one, 15:13 in the seventh, lol :D
But then, in quarterfinals, unfortunately he lost to Taku Takakiwa, so thats it..
But still, impressive!!!

btw Photo by: Remy Gros is gone somewhere, you may fix that ;)

I am happy for Bai He to jump that high, he is just 25 years old and he has some potential!
At the end of the month I should meet him in person :)

We have another future hope in Slovakia (yet it is another Chinese under our flag) - Wang Yang, a defender.
We will see, what he can do in the future..

I thought it was a mis print. Wow fantastic results. I didnt think he would jump that high just from 3 big wins tho....

He might get some extra points..
As once explained by Azlan, when you do an upset, you can get bonus up to 20 points.
And he did some serious upsets, he should lose to Wang Zengyi, not only to Kazuhiro..
He had 1537 points and now he got 2039 .. so thats 502 points, wov, huge!
I feel like there has to be something other too, but I dont know about anything..
But he also got some c sign in there, I have no idea what is the meaning..
Anyways, he is there, he is not the best ranked Slovak player, hehe..
So this is - as far as I remember - the first time that Slovakia is higher ranked than Czech..
I mean - our player is higher ranked.
Bai He is 76 and Prokopcov is 77, lol :D
