      ZJK hasn't canceled yet? Then he'll probably forfeit by quarter-finals...

      Ok, joking aside, he's the obvious favorite here (assuming he's in good shape injury-wise), followed by Fan Zhendong, Dima, Timo and Vladi.

      That being said, go Dima!

      Hopefully Zhang Jike wins the whole thing!!! But I feel that Fan Zhendong will be his greatest challenge after seeing Fan's great shape at the Polish Open

      Fan Zhendong is really great at this moment. It seems winning is piece of cake for him. I saw him at Polish open, after easy win with Kenta he just went to sleep on the bench, then stretched for 5 minutes and win the final.

      Zhang Jike or Fan Zhendong will win this one. Choosing one between these two is hard but i hope Zhang Jike to win it. He needs to get back to international events.

      Zhang Jike will win hands down. He'll probably Dima or Fan in the finals.

      Zhang Jike and Fan Zhendong will not meet in the final. They'll meet at quarterfinal if both of them could go that far.

      First half is much more powerfull then the other. Jike, Fan, Chuang, Zhou. In the second only Ovtcharov is in a good shape now.

      Anybody know why in the first round Zhang Jike is playing ASSAR Khalid EGY who was knocked out by KIM Donghyun KOR in the second stage of pre. round? Is he a lucky loser? Is it because YOSHIDA Kaii JPN withdraws from the competition or it's just a clerical mistake?

      I see that Zhang Jike gets 44% of the votes here. But some Chinese table tennis fans suggest that "Never bet on Zhang Jike in small competitions, but always bet on him in big competitions."
