      Not necessarily. Usualy they take main draw according to World Ranking and in that ranking Ma Long and Liang and Ding are quite far. It is very possible that they will meet much earlier then expected. Let's imagine that XX and LDS and LGY are in one half. Let's say XX meets them early and defeat them after that he will be defeated by jang woojin or mizutani. In the other half it is possible that LJK will meet FZD very early and defeat him and also Ma long but finally harimoto defeats LJK. And after all we will have no chinese final…
      Of course it is rather wishful thinking but still possible. Everything depends on the draw.

      Once you're at it, might as well also import the popularity of Tabletennis, plus the whole infrastructure plus some young players too.

      Mate, there are no quick 'n easy solutions for very complex problems even when loud people claim the opposite.

      Draw is not according to world ranking but rather according to Tour standing.

      Yes you are right I just found out. In that case it is very unlikely for any foreigner outside of china to win it or even reach final.

If we had Chinese level coaches, I do think the whole system would benefit a lot. The results might not be apparent in short term, but give it 10 years and you'll see the difference.

      I would like also to see more Table Tennis tournaments on Eurosport TV. It's a great step towards increasing the popularity of the sport. Men's world cup was a great start.

      Really? This is quite far from reality, mate.
      As for Germany this is already happening since long time.

      FSV Mainz 05 (2nd Bundesliga - the club Kanak Jha is playing for)
      Coach: Li Bing
      TTC Rhönsprudel Fulda (TTBL)
      Coach: Meng Qing Yu

      TTF Ochsenhausen (TTBL)
      Coach: Fu Yong

      Coach HeTTV: Gao Xiaoyun
      DTTZ coach: Zhu Xiaojong

      Those are just the first that came to my mind, there are plenty more, like Qiu Dang's father for instance or on the female side Jie Schöpp.
      So this alone can't be the solution.

He may not pan out as well as some of us expect, but I think he has collected more than enough.
      Hey, never said HT wasn't impressive. I just thought he would have more points because I see his name everywhere. I mean I didn't think LGY would have a 130 pt. average, because he's had a relatively quiet year.
