Zhang Jike has one hell of a draw!

Three players in his half of the draw have all beaten him in the past year. Many have said if Zhang Jike gets through these players he will go on to win it. Agree?

? think it all boils down on how LGL and xiao zhan handled him and will handle him from now on. His spirit on wttc 2015 and 2016 was great in important matches, not a spectacular performance as in the past, but a solid one. I think he will have no problem reaching the final if he gets into the groove

ZJK tends to get bored easily. Since he already won gold last time hopefully he still has some interests in trying to win. Samsonov or Dima could beat him if he not careful. I want Ma Long to win but I also want a great final match!

I am! The ceremony is freaky, pretty cool. Does anyone know when the table tennis will start to be shown? Surely not all of it will be on TV, anyone know a good site where it's streamed?

Well if you're in the UK the BBC will be streaming pretty much the entire competition on their website.

Interview with Ai Fukuhara:


Checking the airflow in the hall because it may affect the high toss serve. Being worried how can the crowd-filled stadium can affect it so it may affect the serve. That is the real profesionalism!
