      Promising Highlights

      Women's Singles – Japanese hopeful Ito Mima has not met Chinese players after her successful sweep at the Swedish Open last year. Will she be able to replicate that amazing run or get booted prematurely by players from other associations again? Not to mention her long-time doubles partner Hina Hayata will surely be looking forward to match her legacy too. Interestingly, the CNT has omitted mid-generation players Chen Meng and Zhu Yuling from the roster, opting for seasoned veterans and promising youths instead. Will this be yet another titanic clash between teams China and Japan, or will we see more underdogs emerging such as the newly crowned European Queen Solja?

      Men's Singles – If all goes well with his recovery, this Open will mark Ma Long's return to the international stage after months of inactivity. Particularly in the absence of Fan Zhendong, can The Dictator live up to his pedigree and prove why he is hailed as one of the greatest TT players of all time? Is fifth time the charm for Harimoto that will allow him to finally beat Xu Xin and/or is a re-match with Ma Long in the making. Ovtcharov Dimitrij seems to be getting back on track following his success at the recently concluded Europe Top 16 Cup. Can he extend that winning streak or will Calderano come out as the giant slayer once more?

      Doubles – Glad to see Boll, Ma Long and Ding Ning back in this category again. Additionally, quite a number of novel pairings I'm seeing too but will they be instant successes or utter failures?

      Curious - Liu Shiven and XE Zhuojia participate ....
      (Will Japan withdraw Ito? How in Portugal....If not, Cheng Meng is the only top Chinese woman who has not yet lost to ITO Mima ...)





      Small offtopic ...It would be surprising if Kato Miju lost in Spain ...In Oman, can Solja Petrissa and Szocs Bernadette reach at least the semi-finals, or will it be Japan-China (Cheng-i-Ching - Chinese Taipei)......And how far Hayata Hina can go ....)

      Thanks. You're literally a walking TT repository.

      Agree with you on Spain Open. Not a fan of Kato Miyu though.

      The newly introduced Challenge Plus does indeed seem to be drawing a good number of higher-ranked players. As for Oman Open, I actually hope Miu Hirano will emerge victorious. Amidst her rather disastrous record in 2018, she renewed Japan's (and other associations') hopes of shattering the Great Wall of China. If she doesn't, she will probably be replaced by Hina Hayata for Tokyo 2020 unless Ishikawa retires before that (cues zeio). At the moment, I think Cheng I-Ching, Yu Mengyu, Hirano Miu, Hina Hayata, Hashimoto Honoka, Shibata Saki and Petrissa Solja all have a chance to come on top. This is just my two-cents.

      Let's wait ... It remains a bit ....
      Regarding Ishikawa, Hirano, Hayata ....
      Japan, TOP-12, March 2 -3 ....Hayata will first have to play the quarter finals....(Seeding eight participants, including Hayata, will be March 1st ...)
      If she win - then the game with Sato ....
      If she won this game too - the semi-final with Ishikawa ....(second semifinal - ITO-HIRANO ..)
      This is a good test of Ishikawa-Hirano-Hayata will (although not sure that HIRANO will win against ITO ...) .....
      Soon....

      It is highly likely that ML would pull off from this event.
