Tough match for every player. Hope for another ML and FZD final if possible.

================
Not possible, because they are in the same half, actually same quarter.
If they should meet, they will meet in the Quarter Final (not final.)

Then, let them meet in the quarter final. ML will probably still beat FZD with flying color.

Hi,

Yang Xiaoxin is in the Women's draw.  I do not recall, ever, a Monacoian player in an ITTF event.

Thanks,
Donn

========================

Yang Xiaoxin has played tons of ITTF events for Monaco.
She is a familiar face to lots of forum members here.
(She was from China.)

She played for Monaco since 2007 (may even be earlier than that.)
Before ITTF changed the way it ranks the player, Yang Xiaoxin was consistently inside top 100.

While I agree that ML is the better player (and in my opinion, the TT goat), I think the gap is closing.  FZD is entering his prime, has always had power, and has improved his short game.  ML has achieved everything and is on the back half of his prime.  In any case, this QF will be more interesting than probably the Finals on the men's side.

Yang Xiaoxin's ranking history:

Note:  In 2017 she was ranked #48.
          ITTF changed the ranking system in 2018, Yang Xiaoxin's ITTF ranking dropped to #247.

You can see that before ITTF made the change, Yang Xiaoxin was consistently inside top 100.

the draw sucks then.  Does anyone think ML needs to manage the outcome tactically with eyes on the Olympics?

  Why is ML who is ranked 6th by ITTF and should be 5th seed ,since TB is not in the draw, is in the same quarter as the #1 seed??

Only the 1st and 2d seeds are arranged on the upper and lower halves, the others are drawn?

LGL is leading the team in the Swedish Open. He might coach some matches.

ML's placement must have been drawn (= fixed?), otherwise it does not make sense

What a great come back for Kanak Jha.

Jha trailing in games, against Soderlund Hampus, 2 - 3.
The 6th game Jha was trailing in scores, 4 - 10.
Looked like Jha was going to lose the match, 2 - 4.

Instead, Jha won 8 points in a row in the 6th game: won the 6th game 12 - 10.
Then went on to win the 7th game, thus the match.

Next Jha will play Pitchford.

Fantastic!  Also note that he beat a strong Korean junior yesterday:

WIN JHA Kanak   USA 11  12  13  11              4
    AN Jaehyun  KOR 7   10  11  7               0

Shibata Saki vs Zhang Rui. (Table 1)
Shibata looks very impressive, leads Zhang:  3-2

Very impressive performance by Shibata, she won the match 4-2.

Shibata Saki advances to the Main Draw.
She beat 2 Chinese players (Wu Yang and Zhang Rui) to earn her spot in the Main Draw.

Shibata has been really impressive this year, winning so many challenge tours and some under 21 singles, there was a particular open where she reportedly played 8 matches in a day, She's so dogged and a big fighter, She's gotten the better of Miu on the 2-3 times they've met this year, I think she'll be a valuable player for the national team, 
She should have her place in the national team, last I heard during one of Adam's endless chatter( I mean monologues WinkLOLLOL, She was competing under the label of her club ( though I think it's still the JTTA sponsoring them, they're just trying to get as much players as possible to play on the world tour ).

Zhang Rui just couldn't play backhand rallies in the middle of the match, Seems like she forgot how to loop with the short pips, She kept punching back into the net, I think this error is common in short pip players, I've seen Ito making mistakes sometimes a lot on her backhand in some matches. For Zhang Rui, Wu Yang, Xue Fei and Zhou Kai___ No Austrian Open
How many eyes have seen their dreams

Never seen a tournament with 3 or 4 preliminary rounds. How many player are in the draw? 200?

Han Ying vs He Zhoujia (Table 1.)
That's a drawn out fight. It takes a long time to play just one game.

China's been a bit unlucky.  Another CHN-CHN matchup coming up: Wang Yidi vs. Chen Ke.  Sun Yingsha was the victim on the first CHN-CHN matchup with Liu Gaoyang.
