    worst draw possible for Harimoto
    He has to play Pitchford, Lin Yun Ju to reach the semifinal against FZD
    On the other hand quite easy draw for Ma Long he's away from big treats like TH or LJJ.
    It is strange that the 1st seed is paired with the 3rd and the 2nd is paired with 4th, usually it is 1vs4 and 2vs3.
    So calderano and harimoto should have been switched

    Only guarantees is 1 and 2 separated from being same section of the draw
    * 3 and 4 get randomly drawed out
    * 5,6,7,8 then get drawed to match up against 4 higher seeda
    * 9-16 follows and that makes up the main branches of the draw... Its blind luck not that ML is complaining

    This is a bad draw for Harimoto wow. He has to face Lin Yun-Yu before the semifinal and Pitchford was a difficult opponent in the past as well. It couldn't get much worse for him. China has to face only one of the biggest threats in semifinal, Harimoto or Lin Yun-Yu. And for Ma Long it's almost a walkover into the final.

    Japanese media glossing over the singles draw. 🤣 They just mention how Japan is lucky to be on the lower half of the bracket in MT.

    yeh its mission impossible for Harimoto.
    Its not a walkover for MA Long. He's not the Ma Long of 2019 or 2017 or 2016.

    Gauzy beated XU Xin in WTTC2019. Maybe he's going to surprise MA Long ?

    It's not like Harimoto hasn't lost to those in the lower half, except Niwa(he actually lost once at Asian Cup 2019) and Gauzy(never met)? Pitchford and LYJ aren't actually that bad for him. FZD will have a much harder time.

    I don't see that coming.
    Yes, Ma Long is not in his best form but he's still well prepared for the Olympic games. There is a chance for Dimitrji Ovtcharov to reach the semifinal, but unfortunately not for Timo. Harimoto could only reach the semifinal, I don't think right now he is able to win against FZD, he's never won officially against him (yes there was 2018 Asian cup but that time Fan lost on purpuose).
    The event could be more interesting if only Harimoto and Hugo were switched...

    players haven't played each other for 1 year. TBH i don't see who can beat FAN Zhendong if he's at his best both physically and mentally.

    I think only LIN Yunju could challenge him a bit if this guy has a good start and is in a perfect day.

    do you have mixed doubles draw ?

    We all know how Harimoto handled an easy draw at WTTC 2019. A difficult draw is actually better for him. No easy way out. No relying on flute. If he could get past Pitchford, LYJ(Harimoto never lost except in the T.League, but H2H is useless for Olympics/WTTC) and FZD, then all the pressure will be on ML.

    Let's not forget FZD has a difficult time handling JYS. FZD will want Boll to get past JYS, but if Boll does, then that will make Boll vs China in Olympic singles a first, which has never happened before. Hard to tell what will happen.

    dima once again with the best draw possible. Should be a lock for the bronze medal match, if Hugo doesnt pull off an upset

    Still nothing on singles for Rallys and Table Tennis Kingdom, but NHK saves the day. How biased could the Japanese table tennis media get?

    21日は午後6時から試合会場の東京体育館で組み合わせ抽せんが行われ、女子シングルスでは、世界2位の伊藤選手が順当に勝ち上がれば、準決勝で同じ20歳で世界3位の中国、孫選手と対戦することになりました。

    伊藤選手は孫選手とこれまでに8回対戦し、2勝6敗と負け越していますが、フルゲームにもつれる競り合いも多く、好ゲームが期待されます。

    男子シングルスでは世界4位の張本智和選手が勝ち進めば、準決勝で世界1位の中国、樊振東選手と対戦します。

    団体では、日本は男女ともに中国と決勝まで対戦しない組み合わせとなりました。

    また、卓球で最初にメダルが決まる今大会の新種目、混合ダブルスでは、水谷隼選手と伊藤選手のペアが今月24日に行われる1回戦でオーストリアのペアと対戦し、卓球の日本代表として最初に試合に出場します。

    Hong Kong media can't get happier for XD and WD, but still report on the grim prospect for MS, WS, MT.

    https://tokyo2020.sportsroad.hk/2021...b%83%e6%9d%9c/
    香港乒乓球隊總教練陳江華表示:「混雙及女團籤運不錯,但其餘3項就普通了,尤其是男團第2輪就要面對中國,肯定難打,不過都是意料中事,奧運沒有容易的比賽,始終都要靠球員自己拚搏。」第三次出戰奧運的李皓晴同樣認為籤運不錯,雖然女隊以往對巴西、埃及與羅馬利亞都有勝績,但她強調羅馬尼亞是歐洲數一數二強隊,而且奧運與其他大賽不同,所以都會有一番龍爭虎鬥。
    Team Hong Kong's head coach Chan Kong Wah: "The draws for XD and WD are decent, but mediocre for the other three events, especially the MD in which we will face China in round 2, which will certainly be difficult but within expectation. There is no easy match in Olympics. It still comes down to the players to fight for it." Third time representing, Lee Ho Ching also thinks the draw is decent. Even though they have had wins over Brazil, Egypt and Romania, she stresses that Romania is among the best in Europe and that the Olympics are different from other tournaments, so there will be hard-fought battles ahead.

    One last time hoping Boll gets past (if FZD has a bad day, which is unlikey) and takes a singles medal in his career.
    But probably won't happen Guess a team medal it is again, where he always seemed to be better in the past olympics - remembering 2012 China vs Germany where he beat ZJK.
