On October 25, Beijing time, not long after the previous WTT Macau Championship men's singles final, Xinxiang's WTT World Cup year-end finals will arrive, which is the most important top tournament left this year.
And now the results of the men's singles draw are officially released, it can be said that the only four giants of national table tennis are happy and some are worried. Previously, Liu Guoliang had just dealt with the national table tennis major affairs and punished Liang Jingkun with iron blood, not only a ban, but 4 competitions at the end of the year, all international and domestic competitions did not allow him to play, and at the same time, the WTT World Cup final directly removed Liang Jingkun. There will only be 15 players participating in this competition, so after the results of this draw come out, the biggest winner is undoubtedly only one person----- Fan Zhendong, because Fan Zhendong has become the only first-round player. If Fan Zhendong didn't have a round, then maybe it was Liang Jingkun who should face off in the first round.
The World Cup final, which was originally attended by 16 players, has now become 15, and the little fat wheel is empty, so if you say that if the round is not empty, should Liang Jingkun appear in this position? And if Fan Zhendong meets Liang Jingkun is definitely not good, on the one hand, Fan Zhendong is not in the best personal state now, he lost to Zhang Benzhihe in the previous World Championships, and then lost to Wang Chuqin in the Macau championship, and consecutive losses prove that Fan Zhendong still needs time to regain his form after not playing for a long time.
Another point, the reason why Liang Jingkun is called big fat is not only because of his size, but also because his playing style is relatively similar to Fan Zhendong, but under the same circumstances, Liang Jingkun's explosive power is stronger and his strength is greater, so he is called big fat, Fan Zhendong is little fat, if you meet Liang Jingkun, Fan Zhendong may not be able to fight, there is a round of probability. But now Liu Guoliang directly punched the banned Liang Jingkun and kicked him out of all the remaining 4 competitions at the end of the year, then this first round Fan Zhendong avoided a big enemy, this time he escaped, he is definitely the best among the remaining four main forces of national table tennis.
And the worst thing is Lin Gaoyuan, Lin Gaoyuan is too unlucky, 1/4 half of the district has to touch Zhang Benzhihe, even if he wins the first half of the area, he has to face Fan Zhendong, can this be said to be a good signing? Lin Gaoyuan had to meet the veteran Pol in the first round of this draw, Pol was already very strong, the 41-year-old German knew the Chinese team too well, he had won a lot of Chinese players, and he was very experienced, Lin Gaoyuan playing Bol was definitely very difficult, which was the first premise.
In addition, even after Bol's second round, it is likely to play Zhang Benzhihe, because Zhang Benzhihe and Lin Gaoyuan belong to the same 2/4 half zone, and there are 4 players in this half zone, Zhang Benzhi and the first round play Francesca, Lin Gaoyuan plays Boer. If both qualify, Lin Gaoyuan will meet Zhang Ben in the second round. It is too difficult to play Zhang Benzhihe, Zhang Benzhihe just won Fan Zhendong and Wang Chuqin in the World Table Tennis Championships before, his state is now in its prime, Lin Gaoyuan will be very difficult. Even after Boer and Zhang Benzhihe, he still has to beat Fan Zhendong in the semifinals, and the final may have to beat the Chinese players in the second half of the zone, how difficult do you say this is? He is the hardest.
Relatively speaking, the best luck is Wang Chuqin and Ma Long, especially Wang Chuqin, who just won the championship, it can be said that the strong are lucky, and Wang Chuqin's luck is also very good. In the first round, Qiu Dang was drawn to play better, followed by Calderano and Moregaard, who had just been eliminated by Wang Chuqin at the Macau Championship. When Wang Chuqin advanced all the way, he had overturned them both before, won Moregaard in the semifinals, and killed Calderano in the first round, so Wang Chuqin can almost be said to have guaranteed the semifinals. In the last half, Malone vs. Yochik, and the winner vs. Lin Yunru and Aruna were the winners. Ma Long's position is average, Fan Zhendong is great news, Wang Chuqin is the best news, and Lin Gaoyuan is definitely the worst signing.
