Hi,

This was just released by the ITTF.

With the disruption caused by the pandemic, the ITTF Table Tennis World Rankings were used to determine the qualification of players for this year’s tournament. The application of the 3+1+1 rule states that each Member Association (MA) will be limited to a maximum of three players will be applied. The exception will be of those MAs with a player in the top 100 World Ranking (who will be allocated one extra place) and a player in the top 20 World Ranking (who will be allocated one further extra place). [Bolding added]

So, this is quite interesting.  This will broaden the rosters.  It will be fun to see who is picked.

Thanks.

Nothing new. That's how it has been since WTTC 2015 after the passing of Proposition 19 on modifying laws 4.1.9.6 and 4.1.9.6.1 in the Board of Director's meeting during WTTC 2014. See [1] below.

The change for Houston this time is that member associations are allowed to replace any of their qualified players, provided that the replacement(s) are within the top 256 in the ITTF Table Tennis World Ranking. See [2] below.

[1]
https://documents.ittf.sport/sites/default/files/public/2021-06/2021ITTFHandbook.pdf
Quote 4: Regulations for World, Olympic and Paralympic Title Competitions
...
4.1.9.6 Each Association shall be entitled to enter 3 men and 3 women players in each singles event, with one additional player ranked in the top 100 and one additional player ranked in the top 20 of the ITTF world ranking list issuedin January of the year of the Championships to a maximum of 5 men and 5 women. The maximum entry for each association is 4 players for men’s doubles, 4 players for women’s doubles and 2 men and 2 women for mixed doubles; all players may be different, however, each association can only enter a maximum of 2 combined pairs (players from different associations) per doubles event.
4.1.9.6.1 The host Association may enter up to 6 men and 6 women in each singles event, 3 men’s doubles, 3 women’s doubles and 3 mixed doubles regardless of ranking.


[2]
https://www.ittf.com/2021/06/15/revised-qualification-2021-world-table-tennis-championships-houston/
Quote The elite field will now consist of 128 singles (Men and Women) and 64 pairs in each of the doubles competitions (Men Doubles, Women Doubles, Mixed Doubles) with the application of the 3+1+1 rule which states each Member Association (MA) will be limited to a maximum of three players. The exception will be of those MAs with a player in the top 100 World Ranking (who will be allocated one extra place) and a player in the top 20 World Ranking (who will be allocated one further extra place).

In the event of a replacement, MAs will have the authority to replace any of the qualified players with another from the same MA. The only requirement is that the replacement must be among the top 256 players in the ITTF Table Tennis World Ranking.

Hi

Does the host nation, USA gets any special treatment due to its host nation status?
I think Kanak can qualified as the top 100 ranked player to ensure the fourth spot.
What about the fifth spot, can USA can that even we don't have anyone in the top 20?

thx

For this edition, it appears law 4.1.9.6.1 does not apply and the host does not get special treatment. 3+1+1 for all.

Check out the Qualified Players Lists in the link below.

Argh!  Hina Hayata just missed the cut.  No offense, but she's easily better than both Hitomi Sato and Miyu Kato.

And some of us think better than Ishikawa and Ito.

Methinks team trials will determine the U.S. Team for the World Championships.

Seeing how neither the world championships nor the Olympics (nor the World Cup of course) allows all the world's best players to enter there is perhaps room for one of the big open tournaments to be rebranded as 'The World Open'.

The JNT lineups aren't final yet. There will be a trial sometime after Olympics.

Found the specifics on entry for the host nation.

https://www.ittf.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Individual-Qualification_-2021_Houston_15_06_2021_1.pdf
Quote Host nation - is guaranteed three (3) singles and four (4) doubles places. If the host nation qualifies fewer than three (3) singles players and two (2) doubles pairs from the Continental or World Ranking Places they will be allocated the difference. In case the host nation qualifies players/pairs at the Continental Stage, the equivalent number of quota places (with a maximum of three (3) singles / two (2) doubles) will be added to the same Continent’s quota places. The host nation is not guaranteed any host quota for the +1+1 players for singles, if eligible based on the relevant regulation, unless naturally qualified. For the allocation of the Host nation quotas, the ITTF Table Tennis World Ranking (Week:24 ) will be used.

Oh excellent! I thought that was just for Paris, but if it's for Houston as well then that's even better. There's hope for our favorite Red Elf!

Well, that most desirable thought is to be fulfilled by the ITTF World Table Tennis Tour (WTT).  Recent history its been hubs, hubs, hubs.

This is the latest, representing the time period between the Olympics and Houston.

Budapest to host first WTT Series event in Europe

World Table Tennis action will return next month with Hungary to play host to WTT Contender Budapest at the Budapest Olympic Hall from August 15-20, 2021.  

As part of WTT’s commitment to host events in the second half of 2021, WTT Contender Budapest will create history as the first-ever WTT Series event to be played in Europe, and the first event since the staging of the highly successful WTT Middle East Hub in Doha in March.

I think she's better than Kasumi Ishikawa, but just behind Mima Ito.  She'll have to prove herself against the top Chinese players before I can put her ahead of Mima Ito.
