Will Ma Long recover from injury & play this one?

He has only 7 records, but he needs 8.
With 7 records, his WR is #11.

Good info.  

If he has been playing super league in recent days, he has a good chance to play the World Tours Grand Finals. Have not seen him playing on the world stage for quite some time (due to injury).

German players:  Timo Boll and Patrick Franziska.
But no Dimitrij Ovtcharov.

On women's side:  Half of the players are from China (8 out of 16).  Japan has 5 players.
                            No player from Europe.

She is in World Tours Grand Finals.
Earlier I thought she (Sun Yingsha) had no chance, oh well she may have a chance.

Just a random post. Didn't want to create a new thread for this so i decided to post it here. I've looked at this video and noticed that HT played much better last year in general compared to how he plays now. Just overall he seemed to be much better, his FH seemed to be much more powerful and he was able to play a lot of strong counter loops away from the table, often even winning these rallies. He also made less unforced errors in general. I just find it weird that when i look at how he plays nowadays he looks a bit inferior in a lot of ways compared to last year, however in some aspects he improved for example his BH.
Maybe he used to train more hours last year and nowadays he doesn't train as much?

There's no way he isn't better now, than then.  T2PAC camera has a fisheye peephole type quality to it.  Makes the action look a lot faster than normal cameras.

Agree... he improved quite a lot from the T2 days. The wins against CNT players like Ma Long and Zhang Jike are proof of that. Also you can't compare full matches against highlights (there's a reason why they're called highlights :D). But on the other hand, he's no longer a surprise star, other players are also studying his style and actively countering it with new strategies now and he is forced to adapt, which causes him to lose to some low ranked players.

You could argue that the wins against ZJK and Ma Long were somewhat of a fluke. At least the one against Ma Long. Just look at how he played in that match and tell me he was serious or cared at all about the match. Not trying to discredit Harimoto's efforts in the Japan Open here as i'm a huge fan of him but idk it just seemed like Ma Long was going easy on him in that match. Maybe ZJK was legit but that was because he was still making a comeback and was far from his best. Even Harimoto said it himself in an interview that he felt that both ML and ZJK were out of form in those matches.

HT would have crushed duda freitas in 2007 now he s not a dangerous like last year I think he s aware than he has not surprise factor anymore . Club matches are not like big tournaments
