    The problem is that a lot of things are read off one match. Losing 3-4 to Jorgic who Lin beat 4-0 easily. ML struggles to beat Dima 4-3 and is not in form because he is losing a game here and...

    They should wait to the semifinals or finals to implement this - it just might work, but for the problem that Ito hasn't done that well against any of the Chinese ladies other than LSW, who the...

    Ma Long has beaten all those players, except maybe Pitchford, but I am not in the mood to check. Ultimately, Ma Long always has a lucky draw when he wins and an unlucky one when he loses - he...

    The biggest thing in favor of Waldner for me is Europe was much more competitive during his era. The sad thing is that Europe's top players remained top players for too long. Even now, many of...

    I haven't seen the draw but the best candidates are Taiwan, Germany, Korea then maybe Sweden - I think Taiwan are the darkhorses. Japanese men are a mess. They would have to play Mizutani in...

    Didn't become timid - took more risks and didn't convert. After someone has beaten you so badly so often, it becomes a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

    Most of the "Ma Long is not the GOAT" arguments before this were largely trolling or emotional or based on the belief he is competing in a significantly weaker era. By the numbers, there really is...

    Yes. The one thing that people often point out when describing Dima or contrasting Dima and Boll is that Dima spehds a lot of hours training hard at the table. You can't doubt his hustle.

    As we can see, Silent Assassin is not so silent. No one would fault him for doing it in a bronze medal match. Not every time he plays his pet teddy bear in competition.

    It's because he struggled with Dima and other players, but I think others may not appreciate how much the rest of the world has improved during the pandemic.

    I get the belief and Sun is a special talent, but the lesson of Zhu Yuling, Liu Shiwen and the pandemic is that don't act too much like there is something other than the present.
