European players Dimitrij Ovtchaov, Bastian Steger, Bojan Tokic, Robert Gardos will all be trying to have their hands on the trophy!

      We can use this thread as a means to display all the latest results, videos and news from this spectacular 1st World Tour event of the year! What are your predictions from each event.

      looks like ZJK lost so many fans or ML become a greater player.

      Wow, I'm actually quite surprised after voting for Xu Xin, I thought everyone about now will choose Xu Xin but apparently not.

      Xu Xin is good player but ZJK and ML are something else.XX beat them 2 or 3 times but they beat XX more than 20 times.
      it takes time for a player to find fans.

      Groups and Main draw are out: http://ittf.com/competitions/competi...98&category=PT
      Mizutani can meet Yan An in the round of 16, and Chuang can meet Fang Bo again. Though I wonder if Mizutani will be playing,... at least he hasn't canceled his entry yet.

      Xu Xin or Ma Long's probably gonna win this. Although I hope ZJK really does; he really hasn't been performing well recently since the Olympics.

      If I'm not mistaken, the top seeds (sixteen I think) only start their matches on the 16th (Sat) ?
