      I was just amazed by your surprisingly accurate analysis and evaluation of the LGL .....

      Regarding points for the Asian Cup ..I honestly do not understand how ITTF will consider the rating for May .....The announced ITTF publication date of the rating for May - April 29, 2019 ...
      The Asian Cup - it is possible, only in the June ranking there will be a replacement of previous results with the results of this year ....e will be replaced ....

      The CNT uses the team concept to get their rankings ahead of players from other countries. Their playing skill allows them to do that.

      Thanks for this analysis, a good one.

      "although DN's almost ZYL-like loss to WMY is still jarringly etched in my mind", to comment this shortly.

      Wang Manyu has caught my eye for quite some time, she plays in a very disciplined manner (as all CNTs does, but she excels here), she always keeps her composure, remains calm etc. She has visibly adopted what Liu Guoliang named like 2-3 years ago a move towards masculinity of women's game, she become a strong fh oriented player with a very capable backhand.

      I remember seeing Zhang Jike for the first time on a video 2008~ and I liked his game immediately. I could say the same about Wang, although it's not much about her, performing the strokes but the overall composure she presents throughout her matches. I basically never seen her frustrated loosing to someone ... (maybe sometimes, but she never acts like a spoiled star).

      Now she has Xiao Zhan as a personal coach and this means a lot to me.

      I'm not sure if she's fully prepared to win this years WTTC, so far I have seem Chen Meng being able to pin point Manyu with her domineering backhand, but we'll see. I'll be truly rooting for her in Budapest and her winning 4:0 against DN is a very good sign for me : )

      Well, Chen Meng is more well-rounded IMO and Wang Manyu has a more explosive game. Since you've referenced Wang to Zhang Jike, then it stands to reason that Chen is Ma Long, the player who is more stable. DN's decline is expected since she lacks kill shots which does not sit well in general with the ball change and concomitant turn towards more masculine styles of play.

      Personally, I will be rooting for Liu Shiwen, regardless of whether she clinches the gold medal. She's just a pleasure to watch. But if I had to choose between the two favourites, it will be Chen Meng though XD. I seem to have a weakness for players who have always been 'overshadowed' by their contemporaries (e.g. LSW over DN, CM over ZYL).

      I wouldn't mind Liu Shiwen winning too, she deserves it after all ... Ding ... I don't know, she had it all already ... ; )

      I'll root for Mima. I hope she'll be in top form, not like this open

      For MS final, I think it will be a repeat of 2017 WTTC, ML vs. FZD and we will be treated to another (like Dima said) "one of the best table tennis matches I've ever seen."
      For WS final, I think it will be WMY vs. SYS. Both of these young players are strong and hungry.
      For XD final, it'll be XX LSW vs. Ito Morizono.
      For MD final, it'll be LSS JYS vs. LGY LJK
      For WD final, it'll be Ito Hayata vs. CM ZYL
      These are just my predictions

      Nice vid, zeio! Thanks for the translation.
      Haha, Chinese players are so reserved. WMY wants the WTTC gold so bad, but she doesn't say it out loud, whereas Harimoto has made bold proclamations aplenty. It's interesting to observe how each TT association's culture differ from one another.
