      What a great few weeks of table tennis! The line up for this years Korean Open is huge! For many players, the Korea Open is the last chance to gain crucial ranking points for the Rio Olympic seeding. Timo Boll who did not enter last weeks Japan Open has confirmed his place at this weeks Korea Open via Facebook. Who will be crowned champion? Will Fan Zhendong repeat success? Perhaps World Number 1 Ma Long will prove his seeding. Zhang Jike will be looking to go one step further than last week in Japan. China have entered an additional two players, Fang Bo and Yan An who will make it even harder for the rest of the world to progress forward in the draw. Japan's Jun Mizutani will be looking to find form and get some big wins. Marcos Freitas, Tang Peng and Lee Sang Su complete the top 12 seeding and will difficult contenders to beat.

      A fantastic event to follow, be sure to get involved on the TTD discussions and join us in the live chat in the ITTF Live Streaming!

      I think , Xu Xin , with his new found backhand will take this one. Somehow, I have this gut feeling that Ma Long and Zhang Jike does not want to play each other before Rio .... loss for the table tennis fans , for sure .....

      Ok so what are the chances of Timo Boll or even anyone else to be in the quartel final when there are not just the 4 chinese that played in Japan Open but also Fang Bo if that wasn't enough lol so good luck beating ML,ZJK,XX,FZD.
      Most likely we'll see the same 4 players in the 1/4 as it was in Japan Open but perhaps different order.

      I was talking to user 'Tom TTD' after training about this yesterday. Now Timo Boll is in the mix how far will he get. I think it would be great for the fans for Timo to reach the semi final to break up the Chinese top 4. I think Timo will get to the quarters atleast, he has been training hard it seems preparing for Rio so I am sure he is getting back into top shape. Its a difficult one because no one from China seem to be playing weak at the moment. This should be a great event that's for sure!

      Not only is Timo one of the players who could cause an upset if he plays well, so could Joo Se Hyuk. If he plays to his top level he can cause any of the Chinese problems. I think if any two players were to upset the Chinese it would be Timo or Joo. I think it would be more exciting for us fans if the Chinese dominance was thwarted in this event.

      Lolz, that could hapen. But he was defeated in semis in japan open, olz. How miserable that was for world rank 1 and rio favourite,and the one who is currently in his best shape, lolz.


      P.S I adore Ma Long but hate blind ML supporters who don't see good in other players.

      This will be An interesting one I think . Hopefully Timo can make the semis for a bit of variety . But wouldn't surprise me if we have an all Chinese semis again

      Main draws? Would like to see, if it happens, which chinese player is Timo going to face in quarter. I hope zjk. I am sure other 3 would be very tough for Timo.

      Harimoto is horrendous. SCREAMING after every point he wins. LITERALLY EVERY POINT. And screaming so the whole venue can hear. Shocking.

      Looking at the line up, Timo has no chance to make it into Quarter finals. Young Koreans and Japs too strong to not count them off. Also, Fang Bo is also present. All top 4 will be there for semis. Chuang is sometimes unreliable, Marcos shocks the world every once in a while; And there is Mizutani consitently making to semis or quarters depending upon the number of chinese in the Open. It is so shocking to know for all that consistent play by Mizutani, He has never won against Jike, long, Xin. Wow, he's got a iron chin to keep going even for the fact that he is not able to beat them in being so long in his successful careet. Man that hurts

      It is shocking to see Anton Kallberg losing to the retarded kid. This kid is using mind games and somehow got into Anton's head it seems. Last time when Waldner spoke, he said Kallberg is a very promising player for Sweden to make it big.

      This kid is too strong with those blocks much like Waldner and very unique in his own style. I watched that video of the kid playing against Ma Long, though ML was not hundred percent in that game, the Kid still managed to match the speed of ML. His reflex is on part with top 10. That amazes me that some people are lucky to reach that level with very much less training compared to all those pros.

      But, my prediction is that when top pro's adjust themselves to the demoralizing scream, the kid will have problems with his own head cos it aint working.
