      I think now China will send all possible squads to fight in preliminaries to take harimoto and ito down in the first round of world tours. It is not easy but if happen it could make huge difference in world ranking.

      This time when you need to play a lot to be on top of the ranking. So first time it is possible that once they chose DN she can be in half of other chinese player in olympics. That means no silver for China.
      The same can happen to ma long if he underperforms for longer and harimoto climbs in ranking.
      This is the risk they cannot afford.
      So anyone they choose they must be sure they have two top spots at olympics which means both have to play a lot in world tours. That means no time for injuries or recoveries.
      Everything I have heard says separation by association will e maintained for the Olympics.

      OK doesn't matter if Mima ranked #1 and LSW ranked #2, CM #3

      Business as usual, 1 half will have 1 association, other half the other

      Only way for CNT to meet will be in final not the SF

      I think CNT will give Ma Long every chance to prove himself hit for Tokyo2020

      What you think of ladies for Medals, still lot of different opinions to who will be representing CNT

      WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
      2020 ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championships


      Date: 22 to 29 March 2020
      Busan, Korea


      Busan' WTTC 2020 is when the new Olympic balls DHS DJ40+ will come in play for the first time ever. A Great Solemn day for the sport of table tennis.
      Nobody was given a chance of any sufficient familiarization with those weird balls till the very last moment ... none of the funny laovai 老外] have ever seen those balls .... but the Chinese got privileged anyway, so nice charity starts at home, why not ??

      /Be happy/

      In this case there is still some chance for Ding Ning if she can recover.
      I have no doubts Ma Long will play if there is no injury. Second spot either FZD or XX.
      Ladies is harder to guess I think LSW has one spot.

      There is Asian Qualification in April.
      Usually top 4 men's and women's will attend, so who ever wins that is guaranteed a spot for Olympics, doesn't matter what coaches decision is for 1 spot both men's and ladie's

      Hi all.
      Boring times with sports and also sad times with what is happening externally. Thought just for fun re-visit this thread to get some excitement back into the forum.

      Given Europe and US experiencing spikes again in cases feel 2021 Games might be in some doubt. I know Japan looking at measures of control but might be a losing battle. Think any kind of small outbreak might ruin things and expty arenas might be demoralising for the country and athletes. You would think majority athletes under current times mkhjt not reach peak condition if games go as scheduled due to training limitations. However possible updated predictions for fun.

      Feel given the hiatus of Table Tennis and the routine players are used to, some will decline and struggle reaching some standard whilst others might be doing enough to stay on top of their game, feel Europe and most of N/S America will be heavily impacted on competitive side of Tokyo 2021 games do go ahead.

      Right now.

      Mixed.
      Gold - Japan wins maiden event on home turf, pair of Mima & Mizutani
      Silver - XX & SYS Silver for China
      Bronze - Chinese Taipei CIC & LYJ
      4th Place - Hong Kong pair CTW DHK

      Ladies.
      Gold Medal - Chen Meng
      Silver - Mima Ito
      Bronze - Sun Yingsha
      4th Place - Kasumi Ishikawa

      Mens.
      Gold Medal - Fan Zhendong
      Silver Medal - Ma Long
      Bronze Medal - Harimoto
      4th Place - Lin Yun-ju

      Teams.
      Mens and Ladies.
      Gold - China both
      Silver - Japan both
      Bronze - M/S Korea & W/C-Taipei
      4th - M/C-Taipei & W/South Korea

      Any updated predictions? just for fun
