    Can't wait for the WTTC
    Hope Timo can make any upsets and reach out for a medal again. This might be his last chance...

    As predicted China is coming back stronger and stronger in the last weeks and tournaments. Even the world rankings correct themselves magically everytime we are heading to the beginning of the odd years and finally when April begins. If we think of last year at that time, when Dima or Timo were on top of the lists, they are now not even seeded 1-4 again. Only fortunate thing is, that ovtcharov could face Ma Long at the earliest in semi finals if I'm thinking correct.

    Maybe this time they will get a better draw. Timo was like having 2 times Ma Long and 1 time Fan Zhendong out of the last 6 years And the Qatar open just proofed, that Timos luck for the draw is not the best :P

    But all in all I'll be cheering for whole Europe, America and Africa to see someone taking over for a medal since 2011 in Rotterdam.

    My favs and secret favs for a medal (Non chinese) are: Harimoto, Boll, Ovtcharov, Franziska, Calderano, Woojin, Falck, Pitchford, Lin-Yun Ju (Maybe Koki Niwa if he's in the Harimoto quarter )

    I would like to see a men's singles final with Pitchford vs. Calderano, but this is highly unlikely.
    No having seen the bracket, my prediction is Fan Zhendong vs. Lin Gaoyuan, or Ma Long, with Fan being the winner.

    I expect Chen Meng will win the women's singles.

    Are the brackets posted somewhere yet?

    Look for the ceiling of the arena to come off, if the youngest player entered wins a match, Anna Hursey age 12 Wales.

    Don't know why ITTF is publishing the wrong participants (I know the players list can change, but they were also publishing articles on that one, which were completely wrong, cause National coach has been making an internal competition, which finished yesterday), but the final German squad is now complete.
    Germany will participate with the following players:

    Timo Boll
    Dima Ovtcharov
    Patrick Franziska
    Dang Qiu
    Bastian Steger

    Walther, Duda, Orth and Filus didn'T get a ticket due to their results.

    Just based on singles competition.

    You may be correct about Chen Meng. I think Wang Manyu is the best women's player on Earth, although I would like that verified by a real match between them, as they are very close, reminiscent of our current Ma Long/Fan tango.

    Thanks.

    How was the selection process organized? What is happening with Mengel and Baum?

    I think CM is slightly better but not much between them. The two favourites for sure but I can't rule out DN rising to the occasion either. I am desperately hoping Ito goes on a tear.

    Wang's last two matches against Ding Ning and Liu Shiwen demonstrated a dominant competency of a standard I have not seen since watching the great Li Xiaoxia take Ding Ning and Liu Shiwen apart in the Chinese Super League. Wang is scary powerful.

    I too hope for the best for Ito and the rest of the athletes of that awesome Japanese system. I would not be surprised if the stupendous Jun Mizutani ruined a number of top players' hopes for going deep in the draw.

    Thanks.

    I'd bet on the usual suspects. Dark horse is Ovtcharov. Slowly but surely he's approaching his pre-injury form.

    There has been an internal competition fought out by the players written in my latest post. (Boll,Ovtcha and Franziska were already qualified) So there were several internal tournaments where they played each other coming out on top with

    1. Dang Qiu
    2. Bastianb Steger
    3. Duda/Walther
    4. Orth (injured, but played pretty impressive results before)
    5. Filus (injured, lost all games - didnt play last game vs. Steger due to injury, so Steger was directly qualified and Duda/Walther didn't get the chance to play for their tickets in the last tournament cause they only could make it to a draw with Steger if he would loose and they succeed)

    There was also a bonus point program made up by Jörg Rosskopf for international tournaments like proceeding to the round of last 16 at a major (Platinum,...) or to get into the finals at the national championships, but there were no points distributed.

    Mengel just came back stronger in the last months, and had problems with injuries in the past, so he was placed like about 700 in worldranks when the internal competition started. I think that is one of the main reasons why he wasnt considered.

    Patrick Baum isnt part of the national team for a longer time already, I think his last appearance was in 2015 when he lost to ZJK in the last 16. He has played a lot in France since then and there has been a lot of private trouble at that time. But he never came close to his cadet results, when he became world champion.

    I expect DO to lose before he could reach the QF. He's so far down on the ranking now, that there's a very good chance he will meet China this time in the Rd of 16, provided he doesn't crash out before that.

    DO's WTTC Journeys:
    2017 - Rd of 16, losing to Koki Niwa 3-4
    2015 - Rd of 64, losing to LSS 3-4
    2013 - Rd of 16, losing to Baum 1-4
    2011 - Rd of 16, losing to Boll 2-4
    2009 - Rd of 16, losing to ML 1-4
    2007 - Rd of 64, losing to MLin 0-4

    Of those losses only Baum stands out as a particularly big upset although I am sure he expected better in 2015 and 2017 when he was playing particularly well.
