    The odds for the WS, though still low, were better had Tokyo 2020 been held last year. OTOH, the odds are better for the MS now, judging from Men's World Cup 2020 and the WTT Contender Doha 2021. All-Japan 2021 was a joke when seeded players were forced to play 3 singles matches on the opening day.

    The WT has no chance without Hayata(still low with her). Ishikawa/Hirano just doesn't work. Having Ito play 2 singles in every match is just insane when she has to compete in all 3 events. The MT has no chance no matter how. Mizutani and Niwa playing doubles is comical. Imagine Harimoto playing doubles? Cruelty of competitive sport and fairness in the selection system don't *bleep* mix.
    A few points to add now that both the Contender and Star Contender have come to an end.

    The best-of-5 format for the singles(excluding the semi and final) and mixed doubles, coupled with the light schedule(1 match only per event on a given day) make it hard to draw concrete clues from those matches for the Tokyo 2020, but the women's team is in even greater danger now than it was back at TWC 2019. One can't expect Hirano to play Goku time after time if Ishikawa refuses to pull her weight.

    Harimoto cut the Korean charade from last week, which was honestly a sign of doubt in your own strength. As Waldner advised in their exclusive interview, "don't be afraid to play your game." He did just that the second time, returning to his origin, going toe to toe with Ovtcharov in BH rallies and beating him at his own game. No flashy tricks. No gotcha tactics. Just raw strength.

    Niwa and Mizutani. Can't blame Mizutani for treating his singles matches as busywork since he won't play singles. But for Niwa, he may be playing Waldner before the Olympics to drop off everyone's radar, but that score is just unacceptable.

    Ito didn't play all that well here in Doha. I honestly expected shutout after shutout. Playing in WS only in Contender and WS/XD in Star Contender, her singles draw was relatively obstacle-free in both tournaments, yet she was pushed to the 5th and final game by Eerland in her very first match. Remember your sempai Ishikawa at Rio 2016? Things will be much harder at the Tokyo 2020, given your heavy-duty mission of playing WS, XD and 2 singles in WT under the limited home crowd support. The lack of spirit displayed after blowing the lead in G3 in the semi against LSS/JJH is also underwhelming.

    for info

    on betting sites, the betting odds for Olympics happening are 75%

    personally, i think the real probability is less than 50%

    Just how divided is Japan over Tokyo 2020?

    Yomiuri, 1 of 5 Japanese national newspapers, claims that no overseas spectators will be accepted, yet the IOC statement says otherwise. Roughly 900,000 overseas tickets have been sold, which would translate to roughly 90 billion yen of loss if they have to be refunded, on top of the costs involved in the refund process.

    https://www.yomiuri.co.jp/national/20210310-OYT1T50001/
     東京五輪・パラリンピックの観客を巡り、政府と大会組織委員会、東京都は海外一般客の受け入れを見送る方針を固めた。各国で新型コロナウイルスの感染拡大が続いているためで、聖火リレーが始まる今月25日より前に国際オリンピック委員会(IOC)と国際パラリンピック委員会(IPC)を交えた5者会談を行い、その後、正式表明する。
    ...
     チケットは、海外ですでに約90万枚が販売されている。観客が来なければ、組織委が見込んでいる約900億円のチケット収入が減る上、世界の人々が交流を深めることも難しくなる。返金の手続きにも多額の経費がかかるとみられる。
    ...
     競技会場に入れる国内の観客数についても、組織委は、プロ野球などを参考に上限を定めるか検討しており、4月中に判断する。

    The Japanese government has decided to exclude overseas spectators from attending this summer's Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, as part of efforts to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, officials with knowledge of the matter said Tuesday.

    The government and the Japanese organizing committee of the Summer Games are expected to hold a remote meeting with the International Olympic Committee and two other bodies possibly next week to make a formal decision on the issue of overseas visitors.

    The Session also heard about two important, upcoming decisions that will impact fans. CEO Muto explained that a decision on whether overseas spectators will be allowed to attend the Games will be made prior to the start of the Olympic Torch Relay later this month. Thereafter, a decision on venue capacity is also expected in April.

    TOKYO: A decision has not been reached on whether to allow foreign spectators to watch the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee President Seiko Hashimoto said on Thursday, denying media reports that a decision had been reached.

    The decision would be made before the start of the Olympic Torch relay, she added.

    Sources told Reuters on Wednesday that Japan has decided to stage the Games without spectators from abroad due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

    Whole thing is a mess. Looks like qualifying, logistics, volunteers, medical staff etc appears to be all over the place, four months left alot is still unclear and the dark.

    Just make a final decision. If decide to proceed let all the countries involved know plans, expectations, measures for safety etc so can proceed. If things not in place then cancel and no one would think any less of IOC or Japan.

    No overseas spectators, after all.

    https://www.olympic.org/news/ioc-and...eas-spectators
    During the meeting, the IOC and the IPC were informed that, as outlined in the full statement by Tokyo 2020, the conclusion of the Japanese parties is not to allow entry into Japan for overseas spectators for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 due to the prevailing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Olympic and Paralympic Games tickets purchased by overseas residents from the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee will be refunded.
