      Its a bit ridiculous, but we have a Platinum event back-to-back with the Swedish Open where all the big names were already there

      So we take the same entry list (+ maybe Boll Samsonov and Lin Yunju if they feel better ?) of players and we can have some rematches ?

      Will Wang Chuqin be as dominant in Germany as in Sweden and show his strength to the world again ?
      Can Ito find the resources to titillate the Chinese players again ?
      Will Harimoto redeem himself ? Can Ishikawa finally break the curse and silence Zeio ?
      Can Ovtcharov confirm his new form in front of his home crowd ?

      Follow the event on ITTF

      Would be nice to see Hirano have another breakthrough performance. Maybe take down one of the main Chinese players

      If Ishi starts beating CNT on a regular basis, she should join our forum and posts memes saying "Please retire Zeio!!!"

      just to be clear: i like Kasumi very much and I am a fan (who keeps hoping)

      The only time I REALLY felt upset about her is when i asked for her signature and she dismissed me...
      [this year at Yokohama for the Asian cup; Hirano and Harimoto also didn't give me their signature; tbh everyone was asking for it]

      Actually, Ovtcharov is coming back quite in form

      He lost only 4-3 to Lin Gaoyuan in Sweden, apart from G7 it was his best performance in a while, a very solid one.

      For most people, motivation does not grow from negativity (yes, "anger is an energy", per Johnny Rotten, true, butbutbut).

      What's up with Ma Long these days? Is he taking the ZJK route?

      Yes that's true, we also have Hugo who is a big threat and Timo. I would love to see Timo or Dima go far as it makes the atmosphere amazing in Germany.

      She'll get the resolve and courage to retire, free of charge.

      Music won't help her.

      No i think MA Long's back or somewhere else must be really hurting and he wants just time to heal and rest. Tokyo is quite far still, he will have enough time before the Olympics to get enough competition. I don't think we will see him play before February or March 2020, just like LIU Shiwen this year did if IIRC

      @zeio

      she's really kawaii in this video !
