      Not suprised at all. The Olympic delay looks inevitable, just a matter of how long the delay will be, one or two years. The CNT should be heading home soon now that the two Opens are delayed.

      The postponement has made some winners and some losers.
      Winners:
      LGL - now he get time to climb out of a deep hole he’s in. It’ll be his priority to have two women singles players occupying top two spots in the rankings before the Olympic Games.
      SYS - God send opportunity for her to dominate the games again and position her for the singles spot
      WMY and ZYL - all it out. But now a breath of fresh air...
      WCQ - one year from now, he can be a legit third player contender.
      Losers:
      ML - one year older, he’ll have more trouble beating FZD. Also HT and LYJ will become more mature and formidable.
      DN - aging become more of an issue. May wind up as the fourth player
      LSW - can’t avoid Ito anymore. With aura of a WTTC champion fading, she’ll have to fight for singles spot.
      Not Winners Nor Losers: FZD, CM, XX

      I think CNT winners in general, allows whatever momentum on HT, Mima, LJY and others to go down abit.

      CNT get to buy alot of time, domestically their league is the best with great deal of depth, other teams domestic league not as deep in addition you would think alot especially in Europe in Quarantine so won't be training even for months.

      Imagine WCQ, SYS, WMY 12 months down the track, could easily overtake their team mates. Ranking pretty much starts from fresh too.

      I think when things return to normal alot of changes would of happened.

      We were too shortsighted and assumed that the three sign meant defending her WTGF WS record three times in a row. CM was actually foregrounding the possibility of becoming the fastest Grand Slammer in Chinese history – Olympics, WTTC and World Cup in 2021 XD

      now that the OG Will take place in 2021, the winners of 2021 wttc will be selected to play for singles. Therefore XX still has a chance to play in the single event. Ma Long will play anyway (if his physical condition are good enough)

      FZD has a good chance of doing the same as well. Come to think of it, these two should thank the postponement for a chance to hold a record that will not likely be broken anytime soon. 前无古人,后无来者

      HT and LYJ are still teenagers and going up fast. ML is already 32 with an injury ridden knee and past his prime. A one-year time span at this juncture can be devastating to ML.
      Mima has the best spot this year as the number 2 player and a legit opportunity to crab the gold. I’m afraid it will be much more difficult next year.

      Interesting point. WTTC can indeed be a dominant factor if it’s held at least two months prior to the Games.

      1 year is a long time to make calls on who is playing except Japanese team who already said sticking with same 6.

      Hopefully this all clears up soon and good lead up towards the games hopefully maybe good 10 months of lead up and tournament play so we can get good indication and idea of where players are at.

      ITTF 29.3.2020

      .... Freezing of ITTF Ranking lists as of March 2020 and further evaluation of all implications related to the postponement of events, travel restrictions and other complications, with scope for further decisions on potentially necessary adjustments....


      Does this mean that the April rating will not be?

      I wonder what these adjustments will be, surely rankings is one as mentioned.

      Tokyo 2021 will commence July but players might not resume action for maybe another 6 months

      Yes, it’s interesting ... After all, the results of Pro-tours cannot be extended indefinitely ....How will they cancel? Gradually? In just a few months?

      Good question, guess they will discuss that all and try come up with fair solution. BTW this is nothing compared to mess FIFA is in

      - local league schedules
      - champions league & Europa league schedule
      - euro 2021 qualifiers
      - world cup qualifers

      All delayed, I think ITTF has more simple task not saying not complex

      Not easy calls considering the circumstances.

      Imagine July 2021 comes and players preparation is limited, might have say 5 months of tournament lead up play, how do you determine true rankings. Head to Head SYS is leading Mima
      Ranking Mima is/was on track to overtake

      This situation is complicated and can imagine whatever solution they come up will be crazy and filled with controversy.

      ITTF Rankings update

      01 Apr 2020

      Due to the current suspension of ITTF events in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rankings for April 2020 will be evaluated and released later in the month, then frozen until activities resume.

      The current ITTF Rankings remain the same as those released in March 2020, due to the need to further evaluate all implications related to the postponement of ITTF events, travel restrictions and other complications, with scope for further decisions on potentially necessary adjustments.

      As soon as the ITTF Executive Committee passes judgement on the above, expected to be no later than 15 April 2020, the April 2020 ITTF Rankings will be released.

      Once released, the ITTF Rankings will be frozen again until activities eventually resume.

      The ranking points corresponding to events that took place in March 2020 will be taken into consideration and added to the ITTF Rankings before the April 2020 edition is released.

      Regarding the 2020 ITTF Challenge Polish Open, which was suspended after the first stage was completed and before the main draw started, a decision will be made on how the ranking points will be distributed.

      Further updates on the ITTF Rankings will be communicated after a new Executive Committee decision is in place.

      A separate communication will be released about the ITTF Para Rankings.
