      Thanks!

      Add for the women squad :

      Singles : Ding Ning , Liu Shiwen , Zhu Yuling , Chen Meng , Mu Zi

      Doubles : Ding Ning/Liu Shiwen , Zhu Yuling/Chen Meng


      So no surprises neither for men nor for women...
      Like all the trials and closed training was a bit for "nothing" (except for Lin Gaoyuan of course!)
      But I look forward to the beginning of these WTTC..!!

      The singles were pretty much expected. Glad to see Timo and Ma Long together even though that means he won't pair up with Dima. Is there an official backup announced for ZJK?

      I wont be surprised if ZJK was never seriously injured. It might simply be a part of Chinese mind games

      I highly doubt that Ma Long and Timo will get very far with Timo's performance going down.

      I dont think there are backups in wttc. Unless ZJK gets worse before the final entry date, and I didnt found a deadline for entries in ITTF site. So I guess if the entries date has passed no one can replace him.

      Timo boll in 2009 had the same situation I think, he was listed to play but got injured and didnt participate, no one replaced him

      LGL already stated his terms in his speech: you had to seize the title, he was not going to give anyone a spot if they couldn't take it from those with a legacy of winning.
      What I don't understand is all the people who thought Xu Xin would not make the team, they seem to have totally misunderstood the point and nature of LGL's criticism.

      I am not surprised by the Men's team selection.
      I thought FENG YL would have taken ZHU YL spot after the trials. She only won a spot in the Mixed Doubles as a consolation.
      FANG Bo's spot in the mixed doubles could have been given to LIANG JK I believe.
