In this Japan Masters, the national team did not send all the main lineups to participate, and some personnel stayed in China to continue training and prepare for the China Masters to start in Shenzhen next week. But Shi Yuqi, Chen Yufei, Fanchen Combination, IELTS Combination and other famous players still came to Japan, but Fanchen Combination had to regret retiring due to injury. Others are also competing for valuable top-level opportunities to continue to earn valuable Olympic points at the end of the season.
