      So many ultimate level tournaments to play in such a short timespan, it must be grinding down the players.

      I'm eager to see if Mima Ito can continue marching forwards; and will be eying Timo Boll, who I thought the equal of LJK in their match last week. It might as well have been his, and an in-form Timo is a challenge even to Ma Long.

      I think ML takes this one. Timo is dark horse as usual. I am hoping ZJK improves his performance.

      I don't think she'd play too many competitions too close to each other, cause she's getting used again to do various competitions in a year (after the ranking changes) but maybe it's some other reason and I'm just babbling nonsense here...

      LYJ is solid player. I would give ZJK 50% chance to come out on top.

      I hope you are right. 50 % is generous to me after seeing Harimoto and what LYJ did to Fang Bo and Apolonia.

      Although it will be great if they meet but HM has to go past Jeong Sangeun before that which would be tough. Jeong vs ML would also be great matchup considering he has already defeated ML last year.
