      No, sadly not

      Participation rules are the same as at the Olympics, so only two players/pairs per national association can enter the individual events.

      I don't know why the Japanese association didn't select any of their top players for the Asian Games, but basically sent their B-team (men) or even C-team (women) in stead?

      Maybe some of our Asian speaking friends in the forum can help us figure this out?

      Also, very noteworthy the CNT has prioritized the young players for this event: none of the senior players (read: Olympic champions Ma Long, Zhang Jike, Xu Xin, Ding Ning and Liu Shiwen) are present in Indonesia.

      It will be interesting to see how the young-ish Chinese players are able handle the pressure on their own...

      excellent blog

      Japan's women team lost 2-3 to PRK. Not surprising given its their C team there. Minami ANDO could have set up Japan for an upset as she won against the Rio Bronze medalist chopper KIM Song I, but team leader Miyu KATO lost against her; and the 3rd Japan player Miyu MAEDA lost to a KIM Nam Rae.

      btw, Singapore has no Men's team. I know old fatty GAO Ning is their best player and they don't stand a chance, but many small nations are there, so WTF is going on ?

      JNT are more tuned to aggragating ranking points at this time.
      as explained earlier by Miyasaki, since the alotment for the Olympics for JNT will be based on world rankings in January 2020, positioning is everything, beginning in 2019. Seeding in tournaments, based on WR, will be thus affected too.
      A win at the Asian Games garners only 1050 pts, whereas in an Open will get 1800. Even getting to R16 will get 1080 pts at an Open. Internal competition for the 2 Singles, as well as the third position in Team is fierce.
      So they traded Asian Games for Bulgaria & Czech Op.
      (Can’t post the link, but go to headlines.yahoo.co.jp and add article?a=20180826-00831724-number-spo&p=1)

      According to this article
      http://number.bunshun.jp/articles/-/831724

      the criterion for selecting the athletes for individual competition for Tokyo Olympics will be the ITTF ranking in 2020

      Thus top players are all fighting for their ranking. 2018 ITTF opens don't matter directly for the 2020 ranking calculation, but the higher the ranking, the higher the chances of being seeded, and with their stupid ITTF ranking system, even losing in the 1st round as a seed gets you a lot of points. As a matter of fact, the Asian Games award much less points (1080 max) than the Czech Open (1800 points max).

      Given the situation, i don't understand why the JTTA, to put all athletes on the same feet didn't just do some or all of the following:
      - forbid players to participate in Czech / Bulgaria Open
      - call players for the Asian Games and exclude from the team those who answer negatively (without a decent excuse like injury)
      - if Asian Games seem less important and they want to give everyone their chance, make an internal selection tournament

      Now just look at the team from Japan: Kenta Matsudaira, Jin Ueda, Masaki Yoshida. If lucky they'll get bronze, but they stand no chance of course against China, but also against South Korea. Not sure if they can beat HK, Taipei, India or even PRK either.

      The Women's Team is even worse: Miyu Kato, Minami Ando, Miyu Maeda.

      Japan had a (albeit small) chance for gold in both M and W if they fielded their best teams. The Asian Games are not as prestigious as the Olympics or WTTC, still a medal there would be remembered and its not like there are many opportunities to win medals.

      Also this time China has a strong but a little bit unexperienced team. A few years ago, Ai FUKUHARA snapped one of her few wins [still much much better than ISHIKAWA ever achieved] against China beating Ding NING in the Asian Games 2014 3-1.

      TLDR: ANGRY
