Hi,

In Women’s Singles, the top ten seeds are Chen Meng, Sun Yingsha, Mima Ito, Cheng I-Ching, Kasumi Ishikawa, Tianwei Feng, Jihee Jeon, Hoi Kem Doo, Adriana Diaz, and Sofia Polcanova.  USA’s Lily Zhang is at No. 18, and Liu Juan is at No. 68.

The Men’s Teams seedings have China then Germany, then Japan.  Korea, Sweden, and Brazil are the next three.  The Women’s Teams seedings are China, Japan and Germany as the top three.  The next three are Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei, and Singapore.  The TeamUSA men are seeded 14th and the women are seeded 9th.

Why is he not in MS? He's better than Jeremy.

I don't know how the system works in Canada. If the player is selected by his world ranking, Hazin has a much better ranking #156 vs Wangs' #279.

He is not because North America is allocated but three singles' entries, and we of the U.S.A have two of the three.  Canada gets one.

Thanks.

Eugene chose to focus on Mixed Doubles believing he has a better chance there:

The sad reality is that American players have no chance in any of the TT events...

That's sick! Almost certain Eugene can pack after the fist game.

In a Dr. Phil Voice: So Eugene, how is that working out for you?

They got the worst possible draw.
