There are 100 less player entries than last weeks China Open World Tour, however we should be in for some real treats with the added European players including Michael Maze and Adrien Mattenet! Will there be some more major upsets? Will Timo Boll prove why he's the number 1 seed or will rival number 2 seed Jun Mizutani disrupt his progress? There are many challengers who can beat anyone on their day!

Joo will play? Amazing stuff!
I hope he has recovered and is all well..
I hope he could won another Pro Tour too..

Sad to see that the mainland China team isn't participating.. Especially now that Zhang JiKe is number one.
Maybe it will be Boll and Mizutani in the ms final. I want Fukuhara to do well too.

ZJK is number one?
The June ranking is out?
Gotta check it out. Thanks man!

Chuang is not good against defenders, if he meets Joo Se Hyuk it was his last match in this tournament. Otherwise his chances are not bad (against Boll 30% and Mizutani 50%)
Mizutani will not win, not very good against defenders (Joo) and 50/50 against Chuang and almost 0% winning rate against Timo Boll

I hope Boll will meet Joo in the Japan Open. Bolls statistic is very positive against Joo but Boll lost the 3 last occassions. Maybe Joo will play with the same equipment he used in the Hungarian Open to prepare again for London ;)
