Just when you think about how Xu Xin got the Russia Open Title, the Womens World Cup is just around the corner!

You can watch the Women's World Cup 2012 live here (http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/ittfstream.php)

All the action will happen 21 Sep 2012 - 23 Sep 2012 in Huangshi in China and guess what?
Liu Shiwen is the top seeded player in there!!!

41 .LIU Jia (AUT) ....................1st Reserve player



There will be 4 groups, each containing 4 players, which will play each other to reach 1st or 2nd position in group to go to the draw.

I bet Liu Shiwen will want to get this one so much! She will give no excuses to anyone!

Also Ariel Hsing will want to show that taking 2 games from Li Xiaoxia was no coincidence and she will want to cause some huge upset! Feng Tianwei after getting bronze in olympics will want to show what shes got too!

This can be pretty good tournament, so - now - guess, who will win? :)
Here can also be posted videos and we can discuss about whole tournament ;-)

Great work on the thread Michal! I cannot wait for this one, and you are totally right, Liu Shiwen will be going for this one! I cannot wait to watch Ariel to! What an inspiration at the London 2012 Olympics!

So I found something about history of Women´s World Cup..
It started in 1996 and guess what? It was NEVER EVER won by another than CHINESE!
That doesnt sound very popular..

1-1996 Hong Kong (HKG) ----- DENG Yaping (CHN)
2-1997 Shanghai (CHN) ------ WANG Nan (CHN)
3-1998 Taipeh (TPE) --------- WANG Nan (CHN)
4-2000 Phnom Penh (CAM) ---- LI Ju (CHN)
5-2001 Wuhu (CHN) ---------- ZHANG Yining (CHN)
6-2002 Singapore (SIN) ------- ZHANG Yining (CHN)
7-2003 Hong Kong (HKG) ------ WANG Nan (CHN)
8-2004 Xiaoshan (CHN) -------- ZHANG Yining (CHN)
9-2005 Guangzhou (CHN) ------ ZHANG Yining (CHN)
10-2006 Urumqi (CHN) --------- GUO Yan (CHN)
11-2007 Chengdu (CHN) ------- WANG Nan (CHN)
12-2008 Kuala Lumpur (MAS) --- LI Xiaoxia (CHN)
13-2009 Guangzhou (CHN) ----- LIU Shiwen (CHN)
14-2010 Kuala Lumpur (MAS) --- GUO Yan (CHN)
15-2011 Singapore (SIN) ------- DING Ning (CHN)

So you can see, Wang Nan and Zhang Yining won this even 4 times :)
Then there is Guo Yan with 2 wins and all other just got 1 win.
This time Liu Shiwen can get her 2nd win!

Also this will be Tie Yana´s 11th World cup!
6th for Guo Yue and Jiang Huajun.
And 5th for Feng Tianwei, Li Jiao and Victoria Pavlovich :)

Best results:
Liu Shiwen was at world cup just once - and WON
Tie Yana was there 10 times and best result was last year when she got 3rd place!
Feng Tianwei´s best is also 3rd place, she got that 2008, last year she got 4th, when she lost to Tie Yana for 3rd.
Guo Yue for a Chinese was not very succesfull. From the 5 times she participated, 2 times she was eliminated in quarterfinals in 2005 and 2008, 2 times she was 3rd in 2007 and 2010 and her best result was in 2009 when she lost in the final to Liu Shiwen. So we might get some history repeating, lol.
So, thats some statistics, now just wait till tomorrow for the tournament start!!!


YEEEAH!!!

A World Cup with WR # 369, but without 1 and 2 :P Only 4 players out of the top-10 are there. Only seen in table tennis! :D

# 1 and 2 were invited but chose not to play...

Ishikawa was told to withdraw because the Chinese can't guarantee her safety... - only 3 out of the top-10 remain.

# 369 wasn't really part of the "World Cup", only the "Intercontinental Cup".

# 85 Ariel Hsing just qualified for the World Cup and is the lowest-ranked player of the 16.

Hey what you mean??
Who would want to hurt her?
Chinese dont like her?
She is very good friend with Liu SW.. hmm..
I think I dont understand this..

Anyways, Daniela Dodean is fighting pretty hard now with Dang Ye Seo, leading 3:2!!! Yeah!

Michal_Z
09-21-2012, 09:55 AM
And Daniela Dodean won 4:2!!!
WELL DONE considering she was 0:2 down and things were not looking well with her!

Bad news to Guo Yue, which forfit her match with Yu Mengyu W.O. due an injury..
So there is only one chinese left!

China and Japan are fighting over a couple islands and it's getting worse every day. I haven't really followed it but it seems that if Ishikawa as a well-known Japanese travels to China then the tension might hit her as well.

Well that sucks. Ishikawa was supposed to play for Shandong Luneng (from tabletennista) this year so I hope things calm down before the CSL starts.

So this is interesting.. Samara Elizabeta loses 4:0 to Jiaduo Wu, to beat Jiang Huajun and Feng Tianwei (!!!!) 4:2 and 4:1!!
Well, wov!
Now Jiaduo Wu is fighting for her chance to play in play off with Jiang Huajun, not working very well, she is 1:2 down.. and looking most likely like it will go 1:3..

Ishikawa withdrew beause of the dispute over those islands, the CTTA and ITTf felt that having a high profile Japanese in China at this moment would not be good. the chinese badminton players also withdrew from the Japan Open.
Samara is playing really well, but i think Liu Shiwen will win this one...feng tw not playing at all well lol...pavlovich played well, but samara was just too good, she loves playing viktoria.
hsing did well to beat li chunli, also i didnt expect viktoria to beat li jiao, very good match :)
interesing thing reading Michal's stats re the world cup: it has never been hosted by a country not located in asia lol ;p

Well, Samara was a nice surprise, but really without any chance against Liu Shiwen..
Liu won her second World Cup title,..
Now just wait a little to see how Ma Long will do in the Mens World cup!
He wont have it that easy, Xu Xin will be there :)
