=================
+100

Just checked, Ma Long has not withdrawn from Qatar Open and Asian Cup yet.
Looks like, he will play both events.

I haven't seen the drawing yet.
Btw, Hina Hayata is not seeded. (Depends on drawing, she may not be able to advance to the Main Draw.)

Good news:  Ma Long still has not withdrawn yet.  There is a good chance that he will play.

I apologize....I meant Oman Open ...Embarrassed

(There is no separate post on Oman. Open and Spain. Open ....
Perhaps it makes no sense to have them, and to post information on Oman Open here?)

With four Chinese women Hayata does not intersect ....Defender Tatiana Bilenko ...
A dark horse - YOO Eunchong(Korea)....Zhang Mo...Well, who will be seeded yet ....

I think Hayata has a chance to get into the main draw .....

Adriana Diaz is behind in games, 2-3.

Harimoto has the worst opponent that he could find: Liang Jingkun. Last time Harimoto lost 4-0, IIRC. OTOH, he also lost 4-0 to LGY and then won 4-1 the next time.

In this case, I agree with seguso.

HT against LJK is getting worse.
HT first loss to LJK was 1-4.

(A year later.)
HT second loss to LJK was 0-4.
It is getting worse.

He could still easily turn around and win. One match is a small sample and even 0-4 results can actually be pretty close points wise sometimes.

Harimoto's second loss to Liang Jingkun averaged about 6 points a game.

Jha is ranked 48 but this is slightly inflated compared to his ability. Amalraj is a  strong player who has beaten many top 100 europeans and has been in the top 100 before. It was a slight upset at best.

Nothing against Kanak. I think USATT's policy related to young elite players has no results and wasted a lot of money. They need to responsible for that. 

Looking Japan, young players one by one especially girls. Not sure they can win or not. But China did scare on that and build player selection rules especially against ITO mima.   For US, it has no players to select and also someone said Butterfly quit US TT market.

Okay.  This doesn't make any sense at all.  Kanak wqs the #1 ranked junior in the world for a while and is one of the elite prospects in the world.   Doesn't mean he will make it to the top and doesn't mean the USATT is rrsponsible.for his success or lack thereof either. 

Upsets happen. and Amalraj is a goof player older than Kanak.  Many countries would be ecstatic to have at least one player of Kanak's promise on their roster.  In Nigeria we currently have only Quadri and we are happy to see him play.  Today Quadri lost to Thiago Monteiro, whose golden age is well behind him.  If I had the same attitude you had, I would be saying all kinds of ridiculous things totally unrelated to the fact that Quadri just did not have a good day vs a skilled and experienced opponent.

I think people often underrate many players. The truth is the gap between world number 40 and 200 is often miniscule. The only guys in there significantly better are usually Chinese who don't play many international events. Jha is often criticised for losing against players that he was barely favourite against or even underdog in reality. He is still young. Truls lost even more handily (albeit to a stronger pkayer) and I doubt will be criticised, his world ranking is much lower but he is Swedish national champion and I would say most neutral  observers would say he is the stronger player. He doesn't have the baggage of a top 50 ranking yet and is only 17 years old maybe that's the difference? I doubt Sgouropoulous or Pletea are receiving similar disappointed attitudes either and both are on a par with Jha imo. USATT should be delighted with his progress and not look at every result as some sort of world ranking upset.

The Qatar Open is known colloquially in China as the "Mini WTTC" for good reason.

USATT has no clues about this event. They schedule youth ranking event at ICC at this weekend. All other countries sent best players to QATAR to warm up for next month WTTC. Not sure they really understand the winning big ITTF tournament even the first round.
