    I think the 2019 BoD notes (https://www.ittf.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Propositions_and_Resolutions_to_2019_BoD.pdf) indicate that China may still receive national association separation...

    the rankings in this blog post reflect what the rankings will look like for Olympic seeding purposes if there are no more tournaments. Mima Ito will still be ranked number 2 behind Chen Meng.

    Yeah unfortunately I couldn't find the original interview where she made the comments on Chen Meng and Sun Yingsha. It seems multiple Chinese media outlets have written about them, but it is indeed...

    Kanak is underrated because he is so much better than the rest of the country, particularly in the tournaments that he plays (only open to US citizens). If the US had more players at the 2700-2800...

    The ELO system is self-correcting so in principle if 2600s consistently beat 2500s, then eventually after enough matches the 2600s will be more like 2650 and the 2500s will be more like 2450. I think...

    The winners in each of the knockouts qualifies. For women, there are four KO's + the second stage where losers in previous KO's get a second chance. For men there are three KO's plus a second stage....

    I actually went through and counted the points that Filus won in his match with Jang Woojin (no later rounds because watching table 1 recordings seems to be impossible) and classified 72% of the...

    What are the seeding rules for the WTT events and Olympics in the near future?

    I went through their promotional material and summarized it in this blog post since WTT seems unable to aggregate all the information in one spot: https://edgesandnets.com/2021/01/26/ittfcalendar/...

    I feel like they should be distinguishing at least between top 16 seeds and lower seeds, since all the players getting first round byes seem to be higher ranked

    So do seeds 1-4 follow a snake format or are seeds 3 and 4 seeded randomly? That seems to be the case for the men's and women's even in both WTT Contender and WTT Star Contender, or is it just lucky...

    It's true that there may end up being developments faster than I anticipate, but I do not think what you described is possible using existing technology.

    what you are describing is almost certainly out of the scope of what this company or even any start-up can do. Table tennis is not like chess and go where you can encode the entire game in a very...
