      I'll be there. Don't think they got 5000 players, though, more like just under 4000.

      The veteran Erich Arndt from our neighbour club is gonna attend at the 80+ event. He's the one who introduced the topspin in Germany in the Fifties.
      Looking forward how he will perform.

      Yes, cost is a significant issue (4 years ago it was in New Zealand, which was likely even more of a challenge for some folks). I suspect visa problems could be a factor too, organizers mentioned quite a few recent withdrawals.

      Visa problems and injuries have definitely been an issue for attendance. Right now the entries are holding just below 4,000. Still the event broke the record for the highest number of participating countries, so it's going to be a stunner!

      But don't they have open event where all ages can play? If there is Open event I'd think Weixing Chen will win.

      Nope, only age/gender based groups for singles and doubles.

      I spotted David Zhuang on the list. He's 6 time US National Men's Champion, 9 times US Men's Doubles Champion, 6 times US Mixed Doubles Champion, and 3 time US Olympian.

      Yup - he also ended up in the same group (player #4 ) as Ding Yi, presumably #1 overall seed in this age group. Two players advance into championship round, so he's probably OK, but still, seeding could've been better.
