      I agree about Chen Meng, I rate her as having almost no chance. If the CNT go by their traditional way of selection, she has 0 case at all.

      If the CNT get cold feet, and care more about form, then...

      I think if CNT pick DN and LSW, SYS is a shoe-in for third.

      Since the only good reason to pick DN at all, is if they stuck rigidly to their rubric of choosing via big tournament...

      I would not be suprised if this is the pattern going foward. Repeated failure under pressure is not looked kindly upon by the CNT.

      You can't find "Chinese table tennis" in the fundamentals, because it's not in the fundamentals. This is why I called it being a "philosophy of play". Certain fundamentals are emphasised more due to...

      I think ERT is useful as a general outline of the principles of the Chinese style of play.

      But it:
      a) doesn't go into a lot of detail
      b) isn't particularly useful if you are looking to improve...

      Frankly, No.

      But far more importantly, the CNT don't care. They've told her as much, i'm sure someone can dig up the video of them telling her 'other than world no. 1, you arn't anything'.

      I've mostly chosen LSW because she is the the incumbent World Champion.

      It's whoever first beats the other 2 players in a round robin, between FZD XX and ZQH.

      If FZD wins this one he wins. If XX wins, then it's 1-1-1, and they go again (with one set? or something)

      They usually have access to very soft sponge versions of H3s.

      They are also pretty good for close to the table touches and flicks.

      I agree that the CNT should have looked for other options earlier. But I agree with their decision to drop FZD/DN as a pair also. Watching their play, it's clear to me they don't gel as a pair.
