So many ultimate level tournaments to play in such a short timespan, it must be grinding down the players.

I'm eager to see if Mima Ito can continue marching forwards; and will be eying Timo Boll, who I thought the equal of LJK in their match last week. It might as well have been his, and an in-form Timo is a challenge even to Ma Long.

Why isn't Ding Ning Playing?
I don't think she'd play too many competitions too close to each other, cause she's getting used again to do various competitions in a year (after the ranking changes) but maybe it's some other reason and I'm just babbling nonsense here...
