On Feb 25th, JTTA has updated its webpage with an entry introducing the WTT structure, indicating they will try to send players to events with appropriate precautions.

http://www.jtta.or.jp/news/aobut/tabid/103/Default.aspx?itemid=1091&dispmid=580
コロナ禍の中での新しい形式の大会ということもあり、混乱の中でのスタートとなります。
WTTへの問い合わせに対する回答も二転三転しているような状況ではありますが、日本卓球協会としてはできる限り柔軟に対応してまいります。
大きな変更等が出てまいりましたら、本会webサイト等でお知らせいたします。いずれにしても、日本卓球協会においては、十分な感染予防措置を講じた上で選手団を派遣し、大会結果をご報告致します。

中国乒乓球队调整备战安排,退出WTT中东赛事汇2021-02-24 16:54中国乒乓球协会

  2月24日,中国乒协正式宣布,中国乒乓球队退出2月28日至3月20日在卡塔尔多哈举行的WTT中东赛事汇两站比赛。

  近期,全球多地新冠疫情有加剧趋势,卡塔尔政府公共卫生部门也已经取消或延期举办包括男篮亚洲杯预赛、体操世界杯等在内的多项赛事。中国乒协与国家队教练组经过反复研判和慎重考虑,以保护运动员安全、健康为首要原则,同时结合下一阶段的备战计划,在征得国家体育总局同意后,正式决定退出2月28日至3月20日在卡塔尔多哈举行的WTT中东赛事汇的两站比赛。

  目前距离东京奥运会比赛不满150天,对于国乒来说,严格执行每一天的备战安排都至关重要。中国乒协秘书长、国家队男队主教练秦志戬表示:“协会和教练组结合出国参赛旅行途中可能存在的疫情风险、回程没有合适航班、以及回国内后还有21-28天无法训练的隔离期等情况充分考虑,认为这将极大影响运动员训练备战和后续全运会预赛的安排。我们也充分听取了各单位和参赛运动员的意见,一致认为现阶段留在国内训练是更好的选择。”

  中国乒协在给卡塔尔乒协的致函中写到“虽然最终未能成行,但还是十分感谢WTT世界乒联和卡塔尔乒协前期对我协会和球队的帮助。衷心预祝所有赛事参与者安全、健康,比赛顺利圆满。”通过中国乒协积极、细致的沟通,国际组织和卡塔尔乒协对国乒取消参赛的决定表示尊重和充分理解。国际乒联首席执行官、WTT世界乒联董事史蒂夫•丹顿认为,目前疫情情势下各国家和地区防疫有关的旅行与隔离政策都不尽相同,非常理解中国队所做出的决定。

  谈到下一阶段的安排,秦志戬指出:“我们已经从战略上更新了计划。将利用原本卡塔尔比赛和回国隔离的这段时间,充分考虑各省市单位和运动员的意见,争取在3月底到4月初选择合适的时间,积极稳妥完成好全运会预选赛。这也是关乎各省市顺利完成全运会这项重要赛事任务的关键工作。另外,国乒也将利用好时间有针对性地组织训练,备战接下来计划在中国举行的WTT中国赛事汇。”

  据了解,国际组织计划于5月期间在中国举办3至4站高级别国际赛事,其奥运积分级别将有望与世锦赛、奥运会持平,同时还将包含东京奥运会前最后一个世界混双资格。如果计划推进顺利,中国队将可以在国内完成奥运前的备战热身赛。

Everyone here knows I hate boosters, but I've got good news ! indeed some say at the WTT HQ that a new boostering detection device will be introduced for that occasion, it's called "The Bedivere", China may have taken control of our sport, they do really want to make it as clean as possible:

今季からは「国際卓球連盟(ITTF)ワールドツアー」という名称から「WTT」に大会名を変え、大会方式も変更された。伊藤自身、大会様式の変更点についてITTFへ質問を投げかけるも「私も分からない部分がすごくあって。これどうなの、あれどうなのって聞くけど結局分かりません」と、不明瞭な部分を残したまま、大会に臨む難しさを語った。
Starting from this season, the name of the tournament has changed from "International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) World Tour" to "WTT", and the tournament system has also been changed. Ito asked the ITTF about the changes in the tournament format, but "there are a lot of things I don't understand. I ask what this is and what that is, but I don't understand after all," leaving the unclear parts, she talked about the difficulty of attending the tournament.

Shame on China for causing Ito to develop nasal swab PTSD. It is part of their strategy!!!

Due to the cancellation of Team China, Ito the new number 2 because of the Olympics Settings will be bad for the China team, unless there are still tournaments in China in May! If the Quarantine there 2-3 Weeks does not change, nothing will take place in China.

Could Mima go world number 1 after Doha?

The media and visual side of thing is certainly much better. The new website now looks cool as well. If it’s not showing up on any sports channels other than youtube and their own website it’s probably a bit of upset for them. (Though most of us spectators may think it’s good for us in the short run). I’d love to see it on Eurosports or something.
