For those wondering about the organizational chart of the ITTF, here it is:


I am not sure about the differences in the top jobs of Thomas' and Steve's.

The length of the question starting at 16 minutes 15 seconds is amazing, a full minute!

"did you want to speak on that a little?" LOL


I really enjoy his answer and idea to create 4 grand slams events on the model of the ATP, I have been waiting for that for a while. More points in the rankings and more money that ever for those 4 special events. 

Let's keep the singles WTTC as is, this is too big an event to go away and the 2 years frequency is too anchored in our table tennis culture to change it in any way. It should reward more points and more money than any other event, at the same level than the OG. Just thinking out loud.

good interview. It’s an interesting idea to have 3-4 major events a year like tennis.
