Michael Maze has pulled out of the Singles event. I believe its due to his injury and that he does not want to over do it. Olympics is only around the corner.

There's no doubt about the initial position before the upcoming tournament in Poland, Timo Boll is the man to beat at this year's ETTC.
A lot has happened since Maze beat him in front of his home crowd in Stuttgart and the winner of 2009 would probably be happy if he stayed injury-free during the competition.

Boll's main task will most likely be to keep up his focus and prevent upsets by some of the upcoming talents from France and his teammates Dima Ovtcharov, Bastian Steger and Patrick Baum. Christian Süss, who beat him at The German Championship, had to withdraw from the competition due to a severe injury.

Vladimir Samsonov could perhaps pose a threat to Boll's title campaign but the best days of the Belarusian have passed.

One could get the impression that we've got an utterly boring tournament ahead of us but appearances are deceitful.
It will be exciting to see if Boll can repeat his masterpiece once again, how well the young players have progressed and if the German team will be able to defeat teams like France and Belarus without Christian Süss.

The women’s singles is lead by Wu Jiaduo.

What a win!!!! Liam Pitchford (WR 269) defeats Alexey Smirnov (WR 20)!!
Wow! What a win for Liam over the 5th seed.
I've been incredibly impressed by him this year. He's had wins against Gao Ning, Stefan Fegerl, Vladimir Samsonov and now Alexei Smirnov. I think it's fair to say he has overtaken Paul Drinkhall as England's no.1 player.

I'm sure he has a bright future. How old is he now?

I just saw the last 3 games of Pavlovich - Noskova.. What a 7th set that was, amazing!
Noskova loses 5th and 6th after 3-1 ahead and seemed to have given up. Then in the got a 5-0 lead, but Pavlovich went on to lead I believe 9-7 before Noskova won the game and the match 11-9.
