Saying Australian players all share the same climatic conditions is like saying players from Florida should be acclimatised for a tournament in Wisconsin in December.

      Regardless, why would the ITTF try to set things up for Australian players? Our best male is 1200 WR ranking points behind XX. The only way David Powell could win this one is if every overseas player contracted food poisoning. Hang on a minute. There's an idea!
      Wow, you do realize the US is way bigger than Australia geographically, right? So by your logic, none of the American athletes would have any home field advantage if a competition is held in the US, because climate differs throughout the country. The same logic can be applied to China as well. So no Chinese athletes had any home field advantage during China open this year, because China is a big country and climate differs throughout the country.

      Also, I wasn't accusing Australia or ITTF of any wrongdoing. I was simply commenting on the peculiar draw and asking questions about it. It just seemed odd to me that a lot of Japanese players and Korean players landed in brackets right next to each other. There's really no need to get salty about it, man.

If somebody were to win a major tour event (regardless of their ranking) there is now way they would have to play a qualifying match or two to get into the main draw of the next event.

      Do people agree with me that the Australian Open entrant policy with regards to Jang Woojin is illogical? I welcome any arguments defending the system.

      I hope I'm not ruffling any feathers. I'm a new Table Tennis fan, but have been watching multiple sports for decades and I have to vent as this situation is truly puzzling to me.
      I feel like I should point out that ITTF ranking only gets updated in the beginning of each month. It's not updated dynamically in between tournaments. So the points Jang Woojin earned in Korea open won't be reflected in his world ranking until they update the ranking in August. I don't know if this system is good or bad, but it is what it is.

      And even if they were updated, seeding is usually done in advance of the tournament, not during the tournament and is therefore based on a non-current list at a specified date.

      The easiest thing would be to just block-seed all Chinese entrants at No. 1, since one of them will invariably win any given tournament, even if you had never heard of him/her before.
      It just makes me laugh to see eg Kazumi Ishikawa top-seeded in a draw which contains Ding Ning and Liu Shiwen - or Dima up against the World no. 372 who happens to be Chinese: forget the seeding.

      The Asian Games is about to happen and the younger members of the CNT, including FZD, have been picked for that.

      Not sure what happened to Dima. He played so many backhand pushes like an amateur. I’ve never seen a top player pushes so much, got killed so often, and then come back to push again .... wake up Dima

      Because of a hip injury Dima has not been able to properly train for 4 months and mostly just rested during that time. He said himself on the german tt-news forum that only very recently has his hip stopped bothering him and he is happy that he can finally start to train again and that he hopes to get back to his best as fast as possible.
