      who's going to win Paris

      I am thinking about players topseeded and those who can compete with them, but there position on the list is not high right now. So my option is:
      Ma Long
      Zhang Jike
      Xu Xin
      Timo Boll
      Vladimir Samsonov
      Werner Schlager

      What is your opinion.

      Schlager is hardly in the group of top players any more, he'll do alright but won't win. Samsonov has never been quite good enough to beat multiple chinese players in the same tournament so it could only be a miracle that allows him to win.

      The winner will almost certainly be chinese but could easily be: Wang Hao, Wang Liqin, Ma Lin, Yan An, Chen Qi or Fang Bo as well as the ones you listed.

      My vote, however, goes to Xu Xin.

      i would like ma long wins. but i think that other possible winners are xu xin and yan an if he plays his best table tennis in the last days.
      and of corse i want to see timo playing his best table tennis ever. i loved the game timo boll vs zhang jike of last year

      Ma Long showed a very good performance in last months and ZJK is playing awful since OG . Xu Xin also played good but i don't think he will become world champion because he don't have the enough expirience . for Yan An i think he can't even reach the semi-finals
      because he is not top player at all , he was on top form for a couple of weeks.
      i think Ma Long Will win this but i vote for ZJK because i'm a ZJK fan
      and why Yan An , Dimitrij Ovtcharov , Ma lin and Jun Mizutani aren't in that poll???

      well my idea was to put best seeded players (top 3) and on the other side the inteligent older players who can make a surprise.
      I am a fan of Jun Mizutani, but he never won with chinese player, he always qualifies to quaterfinals and then loose with ma long, xu xin, zhang jike or timo boll
      The same situation is with ovtvharov and wang hao.
      Yan An is in a good shape but his last match with Xu Xin showed that he needs more time for practise and more experience.
      Now Samsonov last month beat Zhang Jike, of course Jike is not playing well last time, but anyway I think Samsonov might have an occasion.
      Schlager is not top player now, but I read somewhere that now his putting all effort for Paris. It is like last performance for him, so he will be highly motivated. The other think is he is a typical big tournament player, ten years ago nobody bet on him also. I know that he is quite old, but in 2004 in Olympics 44year old Waldner showed waht the old inteligent player can do.
