    Posted: 12/03/2019 at 12:49am
So many forummers are debating whether Ma Long will play singles in 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
It is not up to Ma Long, it is CNT's decision to make.

Let's do a poll. If you also want to make a comment, please feel free to do so.

If he is healthy he will play that's for sure.  

Ma Long and Fan Z. Are the ultimate choices.  
Else is just plan B.

Why don't you turn around and get the f**k out of the forum? 

On a serious note, I think ML will likely be selected unless his injury resurfaces and impacts his performance. I'd love to see XX play though and he seems to have the best chance at beating LYJ and HT who China deems a serious threat.

*post about whether or not Messi will retire after 2020, aimed at a bunch of people who obviously love to watch Messi play and think he's the greatest current player* can you give me a third option? wHo gIvEs a sHiT exCePT bArCeLoNa aNd aRgEnTiNa fans - literally you right now, but in this case swap Messi and Barcelona with Ma Long and Chinese fans (what? you can't like Ma Long if you don't live in China or support non-Chinese players and also want them to do well and maybe cheer when they beat Ma Long? MIND ASPLODE!!!!!!!!)

having a very normal one on the forums

Could someone explain if there are some strategic reasons for the CNT to not choose Ma Long 'if' he continues to need a lot of recovery and is unable to attend very many tournaments (and rack up ranking points) even though he may be healthy enough next year?

It seems for 2016, the CNT player announcement for Olympics was around May....and the Olympic seeding was based on the rankings from July or August 2016.  At that time Ma Long was 1 and ZJK was 4.  But the CNT had the top 4 locked up.  (Ovtcharov was ranked 5th)

"If" Ma Long's ranking falls under 2 non-CNT in ranking and they choose FZD and Ma Long then they would be on the 'same half' and play before the gold metal match.

Obviously everything rides on Ma Long's health but would the CNT risk Ma Long taking too much rest and his ranking falling below Harimoto/Hugo/Timo/Flack/LYJ ?

Players from the same country would be put in different halves of the draw, you can check the 2016 draw.

It seems the nore confident they are in Fan, the more likely they are to send ML to play the other singles.  I guess XX wpuld be the other choice.  If ML is reasonably healthy I guess he will play, as world champ.

Maybe nore interesting question is if ML abd XX are both unable to play (which I def hope does NOT happen) then who would CNT send next for MS?  Winner of marvelous 12? Or LGY as most experienced?  I think we can rulw out WCQ after his temper tantrum.

I´d like CNT sending Ma Long and XX to play singles.
XX has NEVER lost to any of the kids, he is by far the most dominant player against them.
And Ma should go if he is healthy six months from now. I believe he will be.
One may argue "and FZ?" Ok, he is #1 but still young and will certainly have more chances to play singles in Olympic games. For XX and Ma it´s the last time.

If the Olympics started today Ma Long would not be able to make it to the final . He is not in good enough shape  with his injuries . Harimoto and LYJ easily beat him this week  So If they choose Ma Long they would have everything riding on one player (FZD). FZD  and XX are the best choice right now but things can change before the olympic.

XX can beat lin and HT but can lose to a lesser player like gauzy or koreans

You don't know they hate China. You are making a big assumption there.

I can also make an assumption. I find that I am a bit bitter that the country I live in does not invest enough into TT, and that really limits the number of players of high quality that can compete internationally and possibly even threaten the chinese players. 
Nothing to do with hating China. Only somebody with a persecution complex would think its about hating china. 
I love watching and LEARNING from the chinese players. 
They are awesome!

sounds like JW is just bitter and does not reflect the opinion of many many others here. He's cherry picking too. He should back up his accusations with some evidence.

As for Igor....he's in his own little world. I just read his comments and laugh. He's good entertainment.

not allowing country's #1 ranked player to participate would send the wrong message on many levels. either Fan Zhendong is not going or the poll is wrong.
