      Lol Liu Shiwen meets Zhu Yuling in the first round. That should be final or semifinal.

      I have no idea. It says so in the official 2018 handbook under "Regulations for International Competitions":

      3.7.5.2 If two or more members of the group have gained the same number of match
      points their relative positions shall be determined only by the results of the
      matches between them, by considering successively the numbers of match
      points, the ratios of wins to losses first in individual matches (for a team
      event), games and points, as far as is necessary to resolve the order.
      EDIT: It appears that they only look at the ratio

      Fewer games lost means a higher ratio (6/5 is higher than 7/6). This is the documented method.

      It is a 3 way tie so head to head no longer matters. The Individual ratios are Steger 6-5, Xu 7-6 and Pitchford 5-7. So Steger 1, Xu 2 and Pitchford 3. These things are commonly debated and confused with people trying to bring back the head to head after it is already out of the picture in a 3 way tie.

      After all these years, the ITTF still don't put it in decimal in a pair of parentheses after the ratio, leaving people scratching their heads like teletubbies, even after reading the rules.

      LSS vs XX in round 2, Fang Bo vs Lin Gaoyuan in round 2 as well. Starting to doubt if everything is drawn "randomly" ittf

      Overall a very exciting field (as expected). My prediction for Quarterfinals:

      Fan Zhendong vs Koki Niwa

      Zhou Yu vs Xu Xin (I think Steger will beat Lee Sangsu so XX can dodge him. Steger's style might cause XX some trouble but he should prevail)

      Fang Bo vs Marcos Freitas

      Tomokazu Harimoto vs Timo Boll

      They removed separation by association in the new tournament seeding system for tour events.

      Random doesn't mean evenly spread. Seedings will be more accurate after 6 month or so.

      Sorry to bother, but anyone knows anything about why the quality of stream is so low on ITTv? Last time (Qatar Open) was HQ, so I don't think the host association would get worst equipment to transmit (it's 2018 anyway!). But at least in qualification was very low right, and I checked my internet and it was working properly. Anyway, I hope for main draw it gets better

      Ho Kwan Kit and Wong Chun Ting vs Fang Bo and Lin Gaoyuan - what a match! Full of top 10 highlight plays. Also the most annoying instant replays ever, totally nonfunctional.

      The 1st round is the new final. Get used to it.

      Even the CNT folks can't grasp the concept. WJP complained openly in a response to the fan's question on Weibo.

      I have another question, anyone knows why the multiball system was used only in the Hungarian open this year ? I understood it was going to be used in more events this years, but so far none. Thanks

      It was first implemented at the Czech Open 2017, starting with the main draw.

      Only the World Tour events get that treatment.
