  1. I saw it in Table Tennis qualification forum. This practice was followed for previous Olympics as well. In fact the ITTF calender shows a qualification tournament for Western Asia region to be held in Jordan in 23-26 Feb https://www.ittf.com/2020-event-calendar/
  2. Even if Women don't get the team quota, getting two singles quotas won't be a cakewalk. One Singles quota is confirmed from South Asian Region as I think one quota will be given to each of the 5 regions in Asian single qualifiers, then the sixth quota will be a fight among the rest; most likely would be between North Korea, Thailand and India. The next quotas would come at a qualification tournament and World Rankings. I estimated it will be distributed till Rank 101 whereas the next ranked Indian after Manika is Ayhika Mukherjee who is ranked 121.
  3. Women's team winning is certainly unprecedented. Even Archana was trailing 1-2 game and then 4-7 points in final deciding game. She also saved a match point at 10-11 to win 13-11. But next assignment is Romania who are 5th seeded. Fingers crossed!!
  4. Luxembourg is easy but both Slovenia and Iran are banana skins. If I remember correctly Noshad Alamian has defeated Achanta in the past and Alamian brothers are a decent doubles pair. But still fingers crossed for qualification For women, Sweden is a bit too tough and I see no hope here
  5. I had read the Bridge article already which had piqued my interest in Protected Ranking. However I hope that Sania plays well enough to be at par with top 10 and qualify on her own might
  6. Was going through Sania Mirza's chances through protected ranking and have several queries 1) As required for protected rankings, the player must send a written petition to ITF within 6 months of injury. Did Sania follow this? 2) Protected ranked players can't be seeded. So can Sania still qualify and select a doubles partner of her choice as her protected ranking was 9th? 3) Entry protected is available for 12 singles or doubles tournaments for players who have been not playing for 12 months or more. Does this include the Olympics as its not an ATP/WTA event?

  7. She is playing with the same partner she won Hobart Open. However she is unseeded https://ausopen.com/draws#!womens-doubles
  8. Sania - Kichenok pair win 2-6, 7-6, 10-3 and progress to Quarterfinals of Hobart Open.
  9. Pakistan and Sri Lanka ranked higher in Baseball https://rankings.wbsc.org/list/baseball/men Pakistan and Bangladesh ranked higher in Volleyball http://www.fivb.com/en/volleyball/rankings/rankingseniormen But real question is how many of them can qualify overall versus us
  10. There is no entry of Japan in team qualification https://wtentries.ittf.link/index.php?option=com_fabrik&view=list&listid=36&Itemid=159&fab_plist_og___tournament_raw=76&fab_plist_og___gender_raw=M&resetfilters=1&fabrik_incsessionfilters=0 https://www.ittf.com/tournament/5171/2019/world-team-qualification-event/
  11. Although India is 9th but China, Japan, Germany and Brazil have already qualified Men's teams hence we shall be seeded 5th in teams qualification
  12. Very excited for 2020 and Tokyo Olympics. Expecting double-digit medal tally with few golds and some historic qualifications like Fencing, Equestrian, Table Tennis Team. In fact the first month January itself is big with events such as Table Tennis Team qualification, Fencing World Cups, Asian Volleyball qualification (not much hope really) and Sania Mirza's comeback with Hobart Open

  14. How good are chances of an pair qualifying. I guess the best situation would be if and qualify in other World Tours then we can qualify in Asian qualification event
  15. BWF World Tour Finals starts today and PV Sindhu is the only entry from . She is in tough group with Akane Yamaguchi, Chen Yufei and He Bingjiao
