She kind of skipped the Australian open to play the T 2 Diamond. But who knows whether she will go or not at the end.

I Wonder how many ITTF points it will provide to the winner, finalist…..
Probably the same points as for other Platinium opens...so 2250 for the winner, 2025 for the finalist….

Here are the points for a T2 Diamond event.  Remember that these are added *in addition to* a player's 8 best results:

Winner              1000
Runner-Up           800
3rd position        700
4th position        600
Quarter-finalist    500
Loser in rnd of 16  400

Edit: Looks like reflecx beat me to it :)

BTW, T2 has huge implications for the Japanese athletes trying to get one of the two Olympic Singles spots.  It might even end up being the deciding factor because for Japan, these two spots will be determined by the January 2020 ITTF World Rankings.

A little disappointed that this event seems to be badly organized.

Tournament info, live stream are not done as good as a challenge event. How did they spend that much money to produce such a bad show?

The information can be found on their website or Facebook page.

Live stream seems excellent, I can't imagine a made-for-TV event held in a TV studio to be worse than an event held in a sports hall.

Harimoto seems to be getting worse and worse instead of getting better and better as time goes on.

Going through a down period of a couple losses is a normal part of anybody's progression and improvement. I guess this may come as a surprise to full time fanboys who don't actually play the game...

Well, to be honest, you are right. I quit playing TT over 2 years ago but i still watch competitions and Harimoto is my favorite player, which is why i tend to take it unnecessarily hard whenever he loses.

Harimoto cant take the heat, JNT coaches have realized that  there s no chance for HT without a real FH and they re screw1ng the kid like LGL  said "JNT coaches suck"

His FH seems to be getting worse. Someone shall re-watch all his game tapes and counts all his REAL FH winners (not blocking etc ....).

I think thanks to JW, the idea that WCT is getting better is off the table?
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

I would not dwell too much into this win by wct.
These T2 matches are basically lottery matches with no deuce games ( sudden death at 10:10) 
with a few 5 points sets.  Would wct have won under the normal scoring rules ? I highly doubt it .  Remember Harimoto had something like a 8:1 record against Wct before this match.

This win really shows that WCT deserves his world ranking. Outstanding play from WCT as expected.

" outstanding play as expected ?" Are you kidding me ?
where were you when he lost to WR 304 cho daeseong last week ?
He has had so many 1st round exits in the last 3 years and his results has been very poor for a high ranked player.

What LGL said was something like "How good HT will get depends on how far the Japanese coaches will bring him." It's like an open question, or at most some doubt on how good the coaches are. He wouldn't say "JNT coaches suck" openly of course. LOL

everyone loses sometimes. Harimoto lost against sun, which was ranked 500+ at the time. Ovtcharov loses most of his first round matches too atm. He is an outstanding player don’t you agree? Such a good backhand. Truly a world class player.

Sun wen has beaten Ma long and Fzd in the Chinese super league, he is a very strong player. He has a very low ranking cos he hardly play international competition.  It was not a surprise he beat Harimoto. 

Ovtcharov certainly does not lose often in the 1st round like wct does. Dima also does not lose often to very low ranked players like wct does. Dima has played less ittf events than wct,  but he has won a lot more titles. They are not on the same level, Dima is a much better player.

Ovtcharov has won 1 world cup title and 9 pro tour titles. Wct  has only won 1 singles title many years ago. He has hardly won anything in singles. As mentioned before he has had many first rounds exits in the last 3 years, not good enough for a top ranked player .
