in men, one of first 4, but hard to say who exactly, all of them top level players and tough fighters.
in women, i think Ding Ning will take the podium, I very like her serving style, exactly like on the picture of main post: looking like firebird (little bit cross eyed :p) .

We can expect some minifinals in early rounds. If nothing unexpected happen we can see some great matches:
Fang Bo - Zhang Jike
Joo Sae Hyuk - Fan Zhendong
I think this tournament can give us the idea about WTTC who is going to win. Also might be cruitial for the coach, maybe that is why all best chinese players take part.

Je dirais FZD ou Ma Long, mais XU XIN et Zhang Jike peuvent l'emporter aussi.
Si Fan Zhendong remporte le titre, il sera très en confiance pour les championnat du monde! Et ça, ça n'est pas bon pour Ma Long, qui court toujours après son premier titre majeur, alors que Zhang Jike a tout gagner. Ces championnat du monde, sont sans doute une des dernières chances de gagner un grand titre pour Ma Long, un type qui à l'aire tellement sympathique, il le mériterait certainement...

China is sending the very best to Kuwait.any reason why?

I think it's because it's a Super Series (only 6 in a year) with the biggest rating points, the biggest prize money and the best players. Even if they try not to send too many players at all the tournaments to leave some titles to others countries, Super Series are the most important and they should participate in some tournaments though :). Others Super Series are Qatar, Germany, Japan, Korea, China where they usually participate.
However they won't send any players in Qatar this year.

Absolutely. The Chinese National Team won't participate Qatar Open because our lunar new year is coming during that time\(^o^)/~

Mini WTTC

Final will be Fzd against zjk/ml. Fzd is trying very hard for the Olympics 2016. He is trying to impress Liu guoliang in every possible event. Xu xin is also trying to win but will lose to the other 3 players in semi final. Zjk or ml is not really motivated to win.
After the Chinese trials, Xu Xin and ZJK will be the two most motivated players. Only a Chinese player can win this impressive tournament. I cannot wait!!

Xu Xin vs. Zhang Jike and Ma Long vs. Fan Zhendong .. thats predicted for semifinals, if noone from the big 4 will lose.. :)
In Women Liu Shiwen can get her revenge against Wu Yang in quarters, then Li Xiaoxia in semis and.. Ding Ning/Chen Men in the final..
Wow this will be hard..

Yeah.... No.

Why not? He is in the easiest part. ZJK and XX are easier to beat then FZ and ML. He has already beat both XX and ZJK. Anyway he hasn't so much international experience. So this should be a good test if he is going to another Chinese star or just try to be like Yan An.
