      Hmmm... has TTD now outsourced its hyping of Platinum Tour events to Loopadoop?

      Me too (it's still a secret, but Ma Long )
      But it will be very interesting to see how Harimoto deals with the pressure he will be facing! It would be nice to see him in the final

      Being in the homeland would give Harimoto an extra boost. Harimoto might beat a few CNT players before meeting Ma Long in the Final.

      Maybe more pressure than boost.

      May ZJK try for this title once more! Last year it was a treat to see him compete at the highest level again, with the very close final a nailbiter of outstanding intensity.

      It’s a bit much to ask for, I know. One final flareup…

      Depends on the draw, he could always meet ML in the quarter finals.

      Ma Long is overdue for a bad match. But it obviously doesn't have to happen in Japan.

      I'm most interested in seeing the doubles events because the Singles events haven't been met with much surprises thus far.

      Mixed Doubles

      - Will XX experience another XD loss? His partner this time has been changed to Zhu Yuling who isn't considered a doubles specialist (although she did partner LSW to win WTTC WD in 2015) and isn't in particularly good form of late.
      - Back-to-back champions Lin/Cheng will continue to team up in Hokkaido. Can they repeat the feat?

      Men's Doubles

      - Old duo XX/FZD returns to the fold alongside colleagues LGY/LJK.
      - Koki/Mizutani is still being fielded despite their one round exit the last time. Looks like Harimoto will definitely be tasked with two singles matches for the team event next year.

      Women's Doubles

      - Newly crowned WD World Champions WMY/SYS make their return following a period of hiatus. Can they continue their streak or flail like ML/WCQ did?
      - JNT continues to keep their core players out of WD, choosing to enrol younger but not necessarily less competent members instead. The "Miyus" (Nagasaki & Kihara) pairing which has achieved some decent results is a case in point.
      - The same goes for the South Koreans but with noticeably fewer results to support that decision. Choi/Kim & Park/Lee – who are they really?
      - Ma Lin's star disciples LSW & CM join forces again after four years, which I imagine is part of LGL's search for the best Olympics team to field.

      That said, I read somewhere that Japan is sending 45 players?! Honour and pride on the line there it seems eh.

      Fantastic draw for Harimoto.

      Decent draw for Ishikawa. It's been a while.

      I finally get the see CM and Ito duke it out after how many years?
