FZD without breaking a sweat.
At his peak he is stronger than ma long ever was. Right now he's basically winning every tournament he enters more or less.

But the real interesting part for me is the women's competition.
I think Cheng Meng has become the best china has, sadly eclipsing my queen liu shiwen.
But Mima Ito is basically revolutionizing TT right now.
I really can't wait for those matches :)

FZD, ML, XX, Liang Jingkun, and Lin Gaoyuan are all legitimate contenders for gold.
Unfortunately, there's not much suspense in this grand final for players of other national associations. China is just too strong this year.
Why not? I think Harimoto could take out one or two CNT players. Also Jang Woojin could take out a CNT player considering he's playing in front of his home crowd hopefully he'll be in the same form that he was in the Korea Open earlier this when he won the all 3 titles he participated in.

Jonghoon Lim takes Xu xin out ,
Koki niwa takes another chinese out
One chinese takes another chinese out and i hope the final will be between one CNT and one non CNT player

This is an ambitious plan, but I hope some like this happens. It would make the final more interesting.
