Hi,

The Olympics are approaching.  The courageous among us must come forward with predictions.

Here are mine:

Men's singles: Six of the quarter finalists will be Asian.

Women's singles: All eight of the quarter finalists will be Asian.  

I'm in.

Thanks.

That's actually not a bold prediction lol..... 

Ok I think Fan Zhendong and Chen Meng will take gold this time if nothing goes wrong...

Mima Ito wins gold in WS and possibly Mixed Doubles. FZD wins gold in MS.

My prediction: this will be the quietest olympic games of all time. Unless Harimoto advances to the finals.

He doesn't have to advance to the finals.  Any match he is involved in will be noisy.

I think we are overselling Mima Ito. The Chinese have had a couple of years to prepare for her.

Hi,

Here is a question: What non-Asian in the Men's Singles event will advance the farthest?

My vote: Mr. Calderano

Thanks.

We really can think that FZD should have been WC at least once starting in 2015, no trophy in 3 editions, I do not see how it would escape him this time. 

I'd love to see Harimoto shining in his country but FZD is a special guy since he exploded in the world scene at 16 yo so those 2 are my dream final and I won't root for either, just like I would have been happy either way before Djoko won RG19 v. Tsitsipas, a really nice guy, and Wimbledon20 v. Berrettini, no less enjoyable in his attitude. By the way, in Wimbledon we went from Djokovid-19 to Djokovid-20 Big smile.

Pan America includes all of the Americas so she's not the only representative, but she's the highest seed.  However, Lily should also be seeded in the main draw as well.  And if Juan Liu gets into the main draw and gets a good draw, she could end up advancing further as she's a 2700 level player. So I'm going to say Juan Liu.

thank you for the correction. I am still with Donn though as Adriana beat my ass twice in the same day when she was 9yo and I want to see her conquering.Always a good thing to be beat by the winner of the event.

Imo they're really underestimating Ma Long here... he's in good form and if FZD slips up somehow or gets nervous like in the last WTTC Ma Long will be taking home the gold for sure...

ML is still the best player IMO. He will win the gold medal if he meets anyone but FZD in the final. Not saying he can not beat FZD in the final. CNT has a tradition to pass the torch to the younger generation in Olympics. ML is going to hang his paddle after the Olympics. FZD has a World Cup title in his hand now. He needs to be the next grand slam winner to lead CNT for the years to come.

So, ITO will beat SYS?

It is really hard to predict anything at the moment. The pandemic definitely places a lot of uncertainties on the Olympics. 

For me, I really do not care about who wins at the end as long as everything goes smooth and we can watch the live stream as well as any previous big events.

Lily has defeated higher ranked players than diaz well diaz behaves a little arrogant and is not my fav despite diaz game  is more wicked than lily  like a female maze version.

Hi,

Here is my calculation.

Mo Zhang does not have a full time developmental coach.
Bruna Takahashi does not have a full time developmental coach.
Lily Zhang does not have a full time developmental coach.
Liu Juan is a mom and coach.
Adrianna Diaz has a full time developmental coach.

Thanks.

I don´t believe Ito can reach the final. Sun YS is clearly a better player and Chen Meng never lost to her.
I wouldn´t bet on that.

Oh yes indeed! But it seems he's not part of the Korean table tennis group, good for them.
