Regarding WCQ's ranking, he's currently ranked 83.  And the crazy thing is his ranking points might actually go down if he does not beat LGY because he was runner up last year, and he didn't play doubles this year.  His playing level is top 15 for sure.
Why do the points go down even if one does well in a tournament? Maybe i'm missing something about the new WR regulations.
His January 2018 Hungarian open points (1710) expire and runner up at a regular World Tour is worth 1440 points so it becomes a net decline when February results come around.

yes WCQ is great but I still think LGY will take him.  FZD wasn't playing well against CCY - didn't see the match against WCQ.  anyone still think Jha is better than WCQ?

LGY wins 4-0.

What's crazy is that even before today's results, Kanak Jha has 7185 points and WCQ 5066 points for a difference of 2119 points.  As a point of comparison, the winner of a regular world tour is worth 1800 points.  So even if his January points did not expire and he won this year's Hungarian Open, he would still be behind Kanak.  I'm a big fan of Kanak Jha and believe he's going to do great things in the future.  But let's be honest, he's not anywhere close to WCQ's level at this time.

Interesting to see if ML will play WTTC.

WTTC:  April 21 to April 28, 2019.

(Have not seen ML playing on the world stage for quite some time.)

Chen Meng established as the clear number one woman player. In an era with such a strong top 6-7 this is no mean feat. But can she win the big one this year? I have a feeling Ding Ning and Liu Shiwen may have something to say about it, they will be all about the one tournament and their psychological experience may help.

WCQ was always close but did not deliver in the important moments, that will change, I did not root for either, I like them both equally and it always is a purr pleasure to watch those matches in those conditions. 
LGY more than ever represents the ultimate fast looping style that Ma Long once was the king of. LGY pushes that style one step up with a leaner body and higher speed: if he can raise his consistency he will totally dominate, a bit late like Ma Long had to wait; because it is so hard to fine tune such a fast game towards consistency when it really matters, like not going 100% of certain shots and relying on speed recovery to stay ion the point and not waste it into rushing. 
In America I always like to watch Ling Jishan playing, he is the same kind of guy, all heart out super fast fh counter everything.
WCQ? to me he is like Harimoto, that new breed of close to the table killers, so we have 2 main styles now and they are both valid, I don't think one is better than the other, in later wttc this year the winner will be the one more mentally solid (and maybe getting most luck?).
I have never seen a playing field that even in 2 decades, the MS 2019 WTTC winner could come from anywhere, england, japan, china, brasil, korea, sweden, hong kong or germany.

In general i want Mima Ito to win it this year, but if i had to choose one of the Chinese players then it would definitely be Chen Meng or Liu Shiwen, Mostly because Ding Ning has already won it 3 times.

not following who might meet who, but if they meet in the final, I think Lin will win (not that I am a big fan of his - actually I like WCQ better)

Great call to predict these two. I think you are right. I like WCQ's service variation and mental toughness. Great future for this kid.
well...between Tom and I we got it right, nothing changes, I am falling short again but getting closer, don't take me down, I am building pressure so I shall peack at the WTTC Tongue

Chen Meng already has all the technique and the form to do it, the question is about execution on the big stage, if she can keep her unforced errors as few as in her recent performances. Table tennis is quite unfair in that the major competition WTTC only occurs once every two years (Olympics is once every 4 years which is worse), in tennis you would have 4 majors a year, plenty of chances for players to prove themselves!

LGY seem to have way more problems with right handed players especially tentative returning serves.
This is apparent in China Super League matches.
He eats up lefties.
