TableTennisDaily's promo video for the London 2012 Olympics!


The time is finally here! :) Let's begin discussing the seeds. Will Zhang Jike prove he is the number 1 player of the World? Can European no.1 Timo Boll win the hearts of the world? For some players the pressure may be overwhelming. Who can handle the intense pressure will be key. Can an outsider upset the seeds?

We can use this thread as a means to display all the latest results, videos and news from this spectacular event! What are your predictions for each event?

We will make the London 2012 Olympic (Team) discussion shortly :)

I hope for the european players Maze, Boll, Dima and Persson.. But honestly I think that Zhang Jike will win the whole thing. I also think that Wang Hao will not reach the semi, but loose in the quarters. Ovtcharov will probably do very well, if he keeps his good form from this season :)

I think Persson will cause some upsets, if he can make it back from his last injury tho.. And I think he'll do that :)

semifinal will be timo vs zhang or timo vs wang hao? obviously if they reach the semi...

Timo Boll would play Zhang Jike in the semi final. Wang Hao would play Mizutani.

I think Zhang Jike and Wang Hao will have a hard time getting to the finals. But still, when they're in the right form, they shouldn't have any problems with any of these players. Only Boll, Ovtcharov and Niwa seem like a threat to me actually.

Zhang Jike is the real performer at major world events at the moment, I think if he can maintain that then the gold medal is his for sure. Especially considering the fact that Wang Hao has lost 2 finals and will be feeling the pressure and that Zhang Jike beat Wang Hao in both of the two major events he won (WTTC and WC)

According to the commentator in total China Olympic Simulation Match, it looks like Wang Hao will in same bracket as zhang jike. Mostly that both play from one country will be in same bracket, so that the final will consist of each play from different country.

Can anyone find this info in ITTF or olympic website yet?

That can't be true - #1 and #2 seeds (ie Zhang Jike and Wang Hao) will be in opposite halves, as usual.

Also, note that the semifinal pairings will be decided by lot, #1 can meet #3 or #4 etc.

It could be true...did you hear this from the Chinese commentator himself? I can't understand Chinese, but I think you understand mandarin. I've checked the website, but nothing has been published yet. The draw will be on the 25th July.

It would be crazy if they put the #1 and #2 players in the same draw. That would just not make any sense and is never done.

If they put the #1 and #2 seeds in the same side of the draw, that would be a disgrace to the sport.

On a different note, I cannot believe how close we are to the London Olympics. Wow. It will be fun. You guys who live in the UK must be beside yourself excited. I wish I could go. What an experience that would be.

Dan, will you a group with Table Tennis Daily signs organized for the Table Tennis events?
