    I hope for the european players Maze, Boll, Dima and Persson.. But honestly I think that Zhang Jike will win the whole thing. I also think that Wang Hao will not reach the semi, but loose in the quarters. Ovtcharov will probably do very well, if he keeps his good form from this season

    I think Persson will cause some upsets, if he can make it back from his last injury tho.. And I think he'll do that
    Don't hesitate. If you want to reach your goal, just go for it!

    I think CNT will be all over the olympics and ZJK will show his worth here during this season. This is where he will prove why he's number 1 and world champion.

    Timo Boll would play Zhang Jike in the semi final. Wang Hao would play Mizutani.

    I think Zhang Jike and Wang Hao will have a hard time getting to the finals. But still, when they're in the right form, they shouldn't have any problems with any of these players. Only Boll, Ovtcharov and Niwa seem like a threat to me actually.

    Zhang Jike is the real performer at major world events at the moment, I think if he can maintain that then the gold medal is his for sure. Especially considering the fact that Wang Hao has lost 2 finals and will be feeling the pressure and that Zhang Jike beat Wang Hao in both of the two major events he won (WTTC and WC)

    According to the commentator in total China Olympic Simulation Match, it looks like Wang Hao will in same bracket as zhang jike. Mostly that both play from one country will be in same bracket, so that the final will consist of each play from different country.

    Can anyone find this info in ITTF or olympic website yet?

    That can't be true - #1 and #2 seeds (ie Zhang Jike and Wang Hao) will be in opposite halves, as usual.

    Also, note that the semifinal pairings will be decided by lot, #1 can meet #3 or #4 etc.

    It could be true...did you hear this from the Chinese commentator himself? I can't understand Chinese, but I think you understand mandarin. I've checked the website, but nothing has been published yet. The draw will be on the 25th July.
    To improve, we must enjoy the game and above all have fun

    It would be crazy if they put the #1 and #2 players in the same draw. That would just not make any sense and is never done.

    If they put the #1 and #2 seeds in the same side of the draw, that would be a disgrace to the sport.

    On a different note, I cannot believe how close we are to the London Olympics. Wow. It will be fun. You guys who live in the UK must be beside yourself excited. I wish I could go. What an experience that would be.

    Dan, will you a group with Table Tennis Daily signs organized for the Table Tennis events?

    well, when it comes to money and attraction, everything could happen. Especially UK itself would hope as many ppl would go for all events...
