Tokyo 2020 Day after Day as it could have happened

Korea will top all the ranking rounds in Individual, Team and Mixed Team. 

 

Chinese Taipei will finish 2nd in women's team and mixed, Netherlands will be 2nd in men's team. 

 

There will be a 1 2 3 korean ranking in either men's or women's but not both after ranking round.

 

Some unexpected country will be in top 16 of mixed team. Eg : North Korea, Bangladesh ( if they qualify a woman ) etc. 

 

Here are my predictions for day 0, July 24th 2020

 

https://tokyo2020.org/en/schedule/20200724-schedule

 

 

 

OPENING CEREMONY

 

WHO WILL BE YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG BEARER?

Maja Włoszczowska - Cycling MTB - two times olympic silver medalists.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maja_Włoszczowska

a huge star in Poland, a very nice person

her race is on Tuesday 28th, so she will already be in Tokyo and she will have few days to rest and prepare before she has her competition

 

WHO WILL LIT THE OLYMPIC CAULDRON?

I think it will be a group of young sportsmen and sportswomen who survived earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima reactor catastrophy. No names here.

 

WILL THE CEREMONY BE INTERESTING OR BORING?

It will be very interesting, one of the best ever.

And I know I am in minority here - but i really LOVE parade of the nations. It is not boring for me at all. For me it can last even two hours. Looking for sport stars in every nation, all the familiar faces, checking out who has the best clothing and so... I LOVE IT.

 

and:

ARCHERY – Women’s Individual Ranking Round

ARCHERY – Men’s Individual Ranking Round

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archery_at_the_2020_Summer_Olympics_–_Qualification

 

I am not into archery actually. I don't know much about it.

So I find predictions given by Fly_like_a_don very accurate, Thank you!

So

 

And there are heats in rowing:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rowing_at_the_2020_Summer_Olympics_–_Qualification

 

These are only heats so I will focus on Polish rowers only.

 

ROWING - M Single Sculls - First three of each heat qualify to the quarterfinals, remainder goes to the repechage.

POL - Natan Węgrzycki-Szymczyk - qualifies to the quarterfinals.

 

 

ROWING - M Double Sculls - First three of each heat qualify to the semifinals, remainder goes to the repechage.

POL - Mirosław Ziętarski, Mateusz Biskup - qualified for the semifinals.

 

ROWING - W Double Sculls - First three of each heat qualify to the semifinals, remainder goes to the repechage.

POL - Martyna Radosz, Krystyna Lemańczyk-Dobrzelak - go to repechage.

 

ROWING - M Quadruple Sculls - First two of each heat qualify to Final A, remainder goes to the repechage.

POL - Dominik Czaja, Wiktor Chabel, Szymon Pośnik, Fabian Barański - qualify to Final A.

 

ROWING - W Quadruple Sculls - First two of each heat qualify to Final A, remainder goes to the repechage.

POL - Agnieszka Kobus-Zawojska, Marta Wieliczko, Maria Springwald, Katarzyna Zillmann - qualify to Final A.

Let;s pretend this is day 1, July 25th 2020

 

https://tokyo2020.org/en/schedule/20200725-schedule

 

SO THINGS ARE GETTING SERIOUS NOW!!!

 

It is day 1, everybody is still talking about the breathtaking opening ceremony last night. But the games are starting and a lot of action is going on.

This is too much to put it in one post. So from day 1 I will divide every day into a few posts, starting from the disciplines I like the most and I hope my predictions will be more accurate or starting from the sports which are easy to write about.

 

Let's go!

 

What are your predictions for:

 

VOLLEYBALL - Men's Tournament

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volleyball_at_the_2020_Summer_Olympics_–_Men's_tournament

Pool A

ITALY - CANADA

JAPAN - VENEZUELA

POLAND - IRAN

Pool B

BRAZIL - TUNISIA

RUSSIA - ARGENTINA

UNITED STATES - FRANCE

General questions:

1. Will Russia start under its own flag? As a Russian Federation team?

2. https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1080455/fivb-calls-for-polands-kubiak-to-apologise-after-being-suspended-for-anti-iranian-remarks

How the POLAND - IRAN match will look like? Will it be played fair? In Rio Poland won 3-2 but after the last point there were very sad situations on the pitch. I hope they will not repeat this time.

 

FOOTBALL - Women's Tournament

teams with * haven't  qualified yet

 

group A

JAPAN - SWEDEN

NEW ZEALAND - CANADA

group B

UNITED STATES - CHINA*

GREAT BRITAIN - CHILE*

group C

NETHERLANDS - AUSTRALIA

BRAZIL - ZAMBIA

 

general question:

how the USA - CHINA match will look like? It is the first USA - CHINA clash in these games. These two nations will probably be 1 and 2 in medal table, so it is very interesting.

 

TENNIS - Men's Singles

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennis_at_the_2020_Summer_Olympics_–_Qualification

I used the qualifying criteria from wiki.

I only didn't use the rule which mentions Davis Cup starts and so, this was too difficult for me.

So Top 56 from ATP rankings, (only 4 players from one National Olympic Committee (NOC)), 6 continental places, Andy Murray ;-) and one from Japan.

Then I made a draw ;-)

And on day 1 only the top half is playing (from Djokovic to Medvedev).

What are your predictions?

 

SRB Novak Djokovic (1) - GEO Nikoloz Basilashvili

CRO Borna Coric - MDA Radu Albot

ESP Albert Ramos-Vinolas - KAZ Alexander Bublik

JPN Yoshihito Nishioka – CAN Denis Shapovalov (16)

FRA Gael Monfils (9) – EGY Mohamed Safwat

CHI Tomas Barrios – ARG Guido Pella

SRB Dusan Lajovic - GER Jan-Lennard Struff

ITA Lorenzo Sonego – ITA Matteo Berrettini (8)

 

SUI Roger Federer (4) – GBR Kyle Edmund

JPN Yuichi Sugita – SRB Filip Krajinovic

CRO Marin Cilic – ARG Juan Ignacio Londero

CAN Felix Auger-Aliassime – ARG Diego Schwartman (13)

ESP Roberto Bautista Agut (12) – NOR Casper Ruud

BUL Grigor Dimitrov – URU Pablo Cuevas

SUI Stan Wawrinka – AUS Alex de Minaur

AUS Nick Kyrgios – RUS Daniil Medvedev (5)

 

GRE Stefanos Tsitsipas (6) – USA Sam Querrey

FRA Benoit Paire – POL Hubert Hurkacz

CZE Jiri Vesely – SWE Mikael Ymer

FRA Adrian Mannarino – ITA Fabio Fognini (11)

RUS Andrey Rublev (14) – USA Reilly Opelka

AUS John Millman – SRB Miomir Kecmanovic

USA Taylor Fritz – AUS Jordan Thompson

BRA Joao Menezes – AUT Dominic Thiem (3)

 

GER Alexander Zverev (7) – GBR Andy Murray

CHI Christian Garin – POR Joao Sousa

FRA Ugo Humbert – SLO Aljaz Bedene

UZB Denis Istomin – BEL David Goffin (10)

RUS Karen Khachanov (15) – ESP Pablo Carrena Busta

CAN Milos Raonic – JPN Kei Nishikori

PNG Matthew Stubbings – USA John Isner

GBR Daniel Evans – ESP Rafael Nadal (2)

 

More still to come :-)

Stay healthy, stay home!
