    Ma Long looked quiet good during Chinese League, I hope he is not re-injured

    Sad for Ma Long. Normally this signals the end of a TT player's career in CNT. But I hope LGL and others take cue from TB and Vladi that age is not a big factor in TT. Proper rehabilitation from injury can prolong ML's career for all his fans. I hope ML stays strong and comes back strong.

    Ohh and lets just hope ML's injury is not another CNT drama.

    Maybe Ma Long will immigrate to another country to prolong his career.

    I know Ma Long is great and all, but no one can recover from a knee injury in two weeks, especially one that has forced him to withdraw twice already. Even if he is back, I doubt he could perform at the highest level. I don't understand why so many people still vote for him to win.

    He isn't "back", he already withdrew from the Grand finals. This has already been mentioned many times the past days.

    Um... yeah, I know. I was just explaining why I wasn't surprised that he withdrew again. But I am really surprised that so many people on the forum still voted for Ma Long to win the grand final, despite knowing about his injury.

    Because even a Ma Long coming back from injury is a formidable force. See World Cup 2017 where an in-Form Timo Boll on a good day could barely win against him.

    Funny how from the start of the year, it was mostly japanese players
    then China started to take part like crazy in world tours
    then here you get,

    if ITTF didn't change the "1st round rule", there is a chance that it will be a all China SF in mens, and all China QF in womens

    I personally don't know what is the fuss and purpose of the ITTF WT GF, other than prize money, what are they trying to achieve....?

    CNT has changed a lot since the new ball and and then again since the new ball injuring players more easily.
    they have changed a lot of technique so it won't harm the body as much as the smaller balls previously.

    I don't think this is the end of Ma Long, but certainly his high peak is possibly reached already, now the question is how long can he hold it until more than 1 player catches up and eventually replace him.

    No Mattias Falck? Short pip players around the world will be crying.

    The Swedish vote goes out to Koki Niwa aka the Waldner of Japan. Would’ve normally been Dima as he lives here most of time but you can’t have it all.

    Truls will win 2021. Remember where you read it first.

    He was playing in the Superleague at a good level recently hence the disappointment. You seem to have missed this.

    Captain Ma really worked hard to get back on form for the grand final. Unfortunately we all know knee injury is not the easiest one to recover from. He has to withdraw for the sake of Tokyo 2020.

    I’m hoping for an epic FZD-HT final.
