So... is Zhou Qihao going to the Olympics? What do you guys think?

I'm impressed by his power and stroke quality. He reminds me of ZJK at his prime for the explosiveness. He is also very nuanced, he wins a lot of points with chop block like Ma Long.

I was wondering why nobody posted about this.  Is it true that Xu Xin is out (and won't be going)?

Despite going or not to Tokyo, Zhou Qihao has the most beautiful style among all CNT players, imo.

ZQH played very well in one of the Marvelous 12 tournament (beating ML and XX), but he tended to lose in the qual or first round in the international  events. If he can be more consistence in his results, he will be a player to be recognized more.

Beating LJK and ML in a row is not easy, can he beat FZD tomorrow? Maybe not. They were under the same coach for a long time.

He doesn't have ZJK's supreme control tho. ZJK could often just block opponents down and lockdown the entire game, not even allowing his opponent any attacking chances. Zhou qihao also plays way too mid distance which is not so good against other international players.

Watch this at 0.25 speed. It's so relaxing with your own peaceful music Sleepy


LJK's wide bh block is really impressive. ZQ's lean technique seems like the standard of tomorrow, started by LGY. They both go down so low on their legs.

I still could not figure out why ZQH was upset at the last point. Big ego?

If I had to guess why ZQH is mad at the last point, and this is just a guess, is that his coach probably told him to use more FH from the BH side and he is upset he just got burned.  He is looking at his coach with a "What am I supposed to do?" look and probably prefers just rallying backhands.  ZQH burns lots of people with his down the line backhand, so he knows the danger of using the forehand from the backhand side. 

In China, if your coach tells you to play a certain way and you don't, you can get benched even if you win.

He lost that set because of it, so of course he is upset. It wasn't the last point of the match, the video just stopped.

It looks like that he was upset by LJK, not his own coach. For me, I did not see any faulty play from LJK, so really have no clue. Any way, if he got quite emotional from losing a point or a game, that will really stop him from improving to a higher level.

Wow.  When ZQH (he's earned the 3 letter acronym) plays like that, I don't see anyone in the world beating him.  He's earned his way onto future WTT tours.

ZQH has the most versatile style among the CNT players.

That high ball lob and return in the fifth game basically killed FZD's chance to win.

ZQH had a match of his life, and he played very very good However, I highly doubt he will go far in CTN. He will be just another Fang bo or so. Don't get me wrong. I want he to break the CTN stupid protocol too. Just that, he style is a little yersteday, too many step around at the BH corner.

Yeah but that was before the pandemic which is now a different era of history...

And now Ma Long fanbois can feel better that he lost to champ...

Lol.  Tell Ma Long that too many step around the BH corner is a little yesterday...

Looks like ZQH is using BTY LGY ALC? I guess he will be signed by BTY next.

Did ML almost lose to Fang Bo in the WTTC? Also, this is not the first time ML lost to him.
As I said, I want him to break the stupid protocol too. However, this "搶則身" style is little unfavorable now. His win carries less weight than LJK's last year win. Of course, if he can keep this up in the CTTSL, he may get a chance to WTTC.

There will be a second trial at the end of this month. The highest score from the combined trials will get a ticket to the Huston WTTC. ZQH needs to keep proving himself that he is worthy of that ticket.

. . . to the Huston (sic) WTTC
 

So, the title of the thread is incomplete or inaccurate?  It is not only the Olympics in play here?

Thanks.

The trial is for practice for the Olympics, but the winner is supposed to get a ticket to play in the WTTC.
