      Seamaster is gone.

      If you noticed, starting from the

      https://www.ittf.com/tournament/5008...bulgaria-open/
      ITTF World Tour 2019, ASAREL Bulgaria Open

      Seamaster has ceased to be a title sponsor. Despite the fact that the contract was through 2020 inclusive.

      https://www.ittf.com/2017/01/12/ittf...hip-seamaster/

      Has anyone seen any announcements related to this?

      "Seamaster, a Chinese shipping company"
      "T2 Diamond, Haikou (CHN) has been canceled"
      Coincidence?

      You can still find "remnants" of Seamaster here and there, like posters and logos for the T2 Singapore, but that's about it.

      In case people didn't know, in China, through the magazine Table Tennis World, Qin Zhijian and Li Sun have openly criticized the T2 diamond tier multiple times. They don't like how it interferes with their preparation for the Olympics and forces their top players to participate by tying the tournaments to the World Ranking.

      男隊隊長馬龍說T2聯賽原本並不在自己的參賽計劃內,“因為T2冠軍有額外的奧運積分,不來對積分和排名不利。但現在來參賽,最擔心的其實是自己的身體情況。”

        最後關頭因傷退賽的劉詩雯表達出她的無奈,“T2的附加分很高,奧運之前世界排名很重要,為了奧運積分大家不想搶也不行。”

        “這個比賽一定程度上,打破了我們原有的備戰計劃。”男隊主教練秦誌戩一針見血地地指出,“T2這個商業比賽,本身也不在國際乒聯常規比賽序列內,但是他捆綁了額外的積分政策,這讓我們隊員不得不參加。某種意義上,T2通過一個積分政策,‘綁架了’優秀運動員,尤其是老運動參賽。”

        特別的賽制,使T2比賽顯得並沒有什麼備戰訓練價值。丁寧接受採訪時說:“T2的比賽環境和巡迴賽、大賽賽制都不同,都要重新去適應,在打了兩站很累的情況下參賽,對運動員來說確實挺困難的。”

        “這個商業比賽,我們看來比賽規則和賽制都不是很嚴謹。現在它一年三站,每站又額外算積分。所以大部分隊員為了確保奧運積分,不得不參加。但是,這對大多數隊員都不公平。如果你因為各種原因沒能入選這個比賽,就很容易和參賽的隊員產生較大的積分差距。這個在整個世界排名體系來說是不公平的。”女隊主教練李隼也覺得比賽的鍛鍊價值並不算大。

        面對T2聯賽這個不得不參加的“積分比賽”,國乒隊員們也只能為了搶積分而搶積分了。不過好在接受採訪時,秦誌戩和李隼兩位主教練都提到,現在這種情況下,教練組認為T2上隊員的表現,不會對於奧運參賽的評估有太多的參考價值。同時處於保護隊員的角度考慮,在全國錦標賽的時候,隊伍會安排部分主力隊員做一些調整了,恢復體能,以防傷病。(乒乓世界TTW)
