    Sun Yingsha and Wang Manyu - in fact on mytt, I remember someone posting that ZYL had missed her chance to win a WTTC because the SY/WMY generation was coming up too quickly (and at this time, we barely even know who they were). I thought he was being too pessimistic, but he has largely turned out to be right, even with CM and LSW playing in the last WTTC final.

    CM: I've been suppressing my form for the last several years so that I could win the Grand Slam in the shortest amount of time - 150 days!

    For reference, ZJK did it in 445 days. If CM pulls it off, she'll make history for achieving it without any national and continental titles, except for a now-defunct regional title that almost no people remember anyway.

    It does actually affect Ma Long's reputation if he faces LGY again and loses again in another event. Then you could say that he's recently lost twice now to LGY which says something about his performance and whether it's just a team's match or not, it's still a serious match that it's a test of players' skill and how good they are.

    And it's not like Ma Long can afford to lose at all especially that he's past age of 30 and needs to work extra hard to prove himself still being worth of being able to beat all the top players otherwise he can be easily replaced. Do you think that the CNT does not take these things into account? I think they do, even teams matches like these.

    Maybe the word legacy is too big of a word to use in that context, but the teams match does affect the perception of the players performance and makes the player reflect on their overall game strategy. Because if he doesn't then can easily lose again to LGY in another event that really matters.

    To put it mildly, you have a very interesting view of TT. You probably need to get closer to how the Chinese coaches view the national events. Ma Long is mostly playing this year to stay in shape, this is not an event he usually tries to peak for - it isn't the National games. He would probably have skipped it this year had the Olympics happened and might have skipped it if he played the Olympics Test singles.

    The top players on CNT lose to each other - in fact, Ma Long is probably the only player in TT history with good results in both national and international events of every kind and level. Beijing losing is not a big deal in the least when put in perspective for ML.

    Funnily enough, I believe Sun Wen got his time on the national team due to his performance either at this tournament or the National Games a few years back.

    Yu Ziyang was promising a few years ago.

    If this second ML-LGY loss happened, and LGY lit up everybody else on the CNT, and LGY won a major event, and ML was injured, then maybe LGY would take his place in Tokyo 202x. I'm sure somebody in Macau would give you great odds on that as a prop bet.

    Yes. Even China has this "problem", importing chinese players and letting them play in the national championships
