      The other day I was thinking about which national team I would rank 2nd, 3rd, 4th strongest etc. for the Olympics.
      I find it really difficult. Especially with the importance of doubles.

      South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Japan, Germany and to a lesser degree Sweden. Imo, they are all close enough in their overall level that it's difficult to make out a favorite or ranking among them. They have different things going for them.

      It feels like a slight up or down in form for most of these nation's athletes during the Olympics could be a game changer for any given match they play against each other.

      Another interesting aspect is how to line up the players tactically: who will play two singles and who will play doubles?

      Especially since many of the top teams/medal contenders face the "problem" that their strongest singles player is also part of their strongest doubles pairing. Boll, Lin Yun-Ju, Falck, Wong Chun-Ting and Ito comes to mind, but probably Harimoto belongs to this category as well.

      Ito has also reworked her BH punch. The stroke is more wristy, generating more curve on the ball.

      Interesting .. If Ito will reach the final (this is not a fact!) - will there be a rematch with HE?

      Chinese trainers are good .....Today Ito has no chance against Xintong, apparently ....


      Will this be a watershed moment?

      something strange.....

      Be happy.
      Where did you read that?
      And why do think that the air in Panagyurishte is thin?
      Do you read correctly the atmospheric pressure?
      Dyspnoea may be caused by high temperature and high humidity and Low atmospheric pressure with low levels of oxygen.
      And there is nothing of these in Panagyurishte.
      The temperature margins are 18 to 30C night/day.
      Humidity is 55-65%.

      And the most important for dyspnoea, which I think you are reading wrong, the atmospheric pressure, is very normal, maybe a little bit higher for the season - 950-1050 hPa. What you see in the picture is 704 mmhg, which is equal to 943 hPa, which is very-very normal.

      Ito got hit on the eye. . . . . what an unfortunate incident. Hope she will still give her best for the rest of the game.

      After being down 1-2 I thought it's over and It owould get steam-rolled, but thankfully Ito showed an - at least temporarily - improved mentality until the end.
      Just wish she actually won his, but oh well. I guess all China WS-finals it is as usual.

      That is the way of the Ito. The numbers suggest a close struggle.

      Translations in the post-match interview from English to Bulgarian? to Chinese, wow. We could have a whole thread about the translating stuff at ITTF.

      GG XCT, a good match to watch.


      Edit: no sorry, I realise now it's also for the benefit of the audience.

      Ito showed growth in this match. After game 1, her BH lost the edge. By game 4, she was already stepping around to use her FH as much as possible. If it were not for the unfortunate event, there's a good chance she could've taken game 6.

      Cool shirt, Freitas. Go Portugal! I live in Lisbon now, it hasn't been long. With Quadri from Sporting on the charts, it's a heck of a tournament.
