      FZD without breaking a sweat.
      At his peak he is stronger than ma long ever was. Right now he's basically winning every tournament he enters more or less.


      But the real interesting part for me is the women's competition.
      I think Cheng Meng has become the best china has, sadly eclipsing my queen liu shiwen.
      But Mima Ito is basically revolutionizing TT right now.
      I really can't wait for those matches

      And weird because the ITTF filming will probably not be from the best angle? The quality is also poor in their public uploads aside from the odd World Championship Final. Since players only use these privately I am not sure of the need for that.

      Is it a typo, that the banner of "World Tour Grand Finals 2018" at the top of the site shows the dates "06 NOV - 11TH NOV"?

      FZD, ML, XX, Liang Jingkun, and Lin Gaoyuan are all legitimate contenders for gold.
      Unfortunately, there's not much suspense in this grand final for players of other national associations. China is just too strong this year.

      Why not? I think Harimoto could take out one or two CNT players. Also Jang Woojin could take out a CNT player considering he's playing in front of his home crowd hopefully he'll be in the same form that he was in the Korea Open earlier this when he won the all 3 titles he participated in.

      This is an ambitious plan, but I hope some like this happens. It would make the final more interesting.

      How come no poll for the Women's draw? Their side is every bit as interesting as the men's; perhaps even more so.

      ML or FZD. Would be a great final. I don't think anyone else bar XX has much of a chance. LJK, LGY etc could...but not likely imo.

      Agreed. Women's draw should be much more unpredictable considering players like Mima Ito are there.
