    Imagine if Mima can take out 3 gold in XD, Singles and Team. TT world and China would go crazy

    Team event she would need to win 2 singles and hope other 2 ladies can win doubles, massive ask but not impossible.

    Absolute worst case scenario if Mima wins 3 gold and Harimoto beats Ma Long and FZD. Japan win 4 Gold to China's 1 the Men's Team

    What’s the big fuss over WR you ask? Well, who has been making LGL toss and turn at nights as of late? Hint: a woman but not his wife
    You have no idea how much pressure LGL is under to not lose a singles gold. From CNTs perspective, Mima in #2 means she has close to 50% chance of winning all the way. #3 drops that to 25%.

    Looks like Mima is #2 now with new rankings

    https://ranking.ittf.com/#/home

    I wonder what happens now with a prolonged period of no events how this will influence the Olympics 2021 being over a year out

    The one year delay certainly benefits younger players. Just look at SYS, she gets ML as a training partner and LGL as a trainer. WMY has been playing well and she may be a dark horse competing for a Olympic spot.

    Lack of match rhythm might hurt the whippersnappers more than the old foxes – who also get the benefit of actual recovery from a long period of extreme physycal overload. I wouldn’t count a fully fit ML out; note that the even the older players are still young adults too.

    Then again, all this is speculation.

    Doubts around Tokyo 2021, without a vaccine might not go ahead, all this might eventually be for nothing l, praying not the case

    Would love to see ML & DN 1 last time at Olympic stage

    My crystal ball says no, and maybe. But I don’t trust crystal balls. They are wily critters.

    Say once cleared requires time for things to return back to normal, that's not a quick fix. Right now Olympics takes a back-seat to everything, it's a nice event to have but safety is #1 and given Japan has a very ageing population better measures need be taken.

    I say just take pressure off postpone the event til 2024, move Paris to 2028. Athletes need to be at their best and training strong, this no doubt has done more harm than good, imagine training routines for athletics and swimming, inactivity you would think need time to get rythum back. Might not be popular recommendation but your up against a virus that spreads, we might have to prepare for second/third waves to come too

    I love table tennis but we have to take human life into account here.

    Will virus be gone by July 2021? when will a vaccination will be released? if second, third, fourth waves are to come? If your exposed to the virus, can't it come back and do worse?

    I'm just quoting what experts are saying. If players miss out because of what is occurring they have to deal with it, life isn't always fair.
