      Poll today from Japanese residents only 1 qrt of residents want the games to proceed.

      All these players around the globe not just for Table tennis but other sports could be preparing for something not bound to happen. Winter Olympics 6 months later, some countries may boycott as a sign of retaliation. I admire Mima response and positive outlook.

      This could be as someone mentioned miserable times for these athletes training with unknowns, limited funds to no funds coming their way.

      I would love to see ITTF events back but not like Japanese all star event but I only speak for myself, others might enjoy the idea.

      While the zombies are running rampant in Busan...

      2021 World Championships in Houston
      Alas, Houston has withdrawn from running the 2021 World Singles and Doubles Championships. (It would have been the first Worlds in the US.) I'm told it's not directly because of the pandemic, but because the Olympics in Japan are now scheduled to start July 23, 2021, which would be just after the Houston Worlds in June. (They would, in fact, be sandwiched between the World Team Championships in South Korea, which moved from 2020 to Feb. 28-Mar. 7, 2021, and the Olympics, and they'd no longer be the premier event of the year.) This was discussed at the July 13 USATT board meeting (held online on Zoom, which I attended). Here is the USATT minutes page, and here is a direct link to the minutes of that meeting. Here's the pertinent info - "Ms. Sung" is USATT CEO Virginia Sung:

      "Ms. Sung noted that two very important factors will impact the financial analysis for USATT. The first is the decision with respect to the 2021 Table Tennis World Championships, which were scheduled for Houston, Texas in June of 2021. However, Houston has withdrawn its offer to serve as a host the World Championships, and USATT is still awaiting the official decision of the ITTF as to how the international governing body for table tennis would like to proceed in this matter."

      "Ms. Sung stated that there are several possibilities of how things will proceed, including the possibility that the ITTF will honor the contract that is already in place – and make the corresponding payments due to USATT under that contract – on the presumption that the US will host the World Championships at some future date. There is also the possibility that USATT will work out a different arrangement with the ITTF for a future World Championships in the United States."

      I know that USATT is now actively looking for another site, but I have no idea if they would be able to do it now in 2021. We'll see. Alas, I was hoping to attend and do coverage, and then some sightseeing.

      As I noted in a previous blog, I was supposed to go to the Olympics in Japan this year to do table tennis coverage for USA (both USA and international teams), and would be there now - but then the pandemic came. I may be going next year instead.

      Kasumi Ishikawa Comment ―
      “I decided to participate in the 2020 JAPAN All-Star Dream Match. I think that the Japanese table tennis world will be a symbolic event that will move forward step by step, starting from this event. It's a great honor to hear from you at the event, and although it's remote, it's a great pleasure for me as a player to be able to play in front of table tennis fans. Please stay!"

Even in this difficult situation, many people will be able to see it and I will be energized through table tennis with a little effort. We will do our best to serve you. Thank you for your support."
