Prithika is just 16 years old. I think by 20 or 24 she could be the one of the best table tennis players in the world. She was born in Pondicherry, India which is a French colony and like many others 

FRANCE WIN 2 QUOTAS!!!

He will have another chance to qualify in this tournament as all players who made Stage 2 (Knockout stage) will get another chance in Stage 3 (Repechage stage) to compete for the last 3 spots. Though

Pretty disappointing early exit from Balážová, however she will very likely qualify through Ranking in both singles and mixed, so not a real disaster.

 

It is a bit worse for Pištej, his only chance to play in Tokyo also in the singles is only by qualifying from OQT, he still have the repechage round here, but I do not see it very realistic, I do fear he will be in Tokyo only for the mixed doubles with Barbora, both are still first non-qualified pair, so baring total completely unforeseen circumstances they should be already in (waiting for ITTU confirmation ofc)

Wow can't believe Gionis lost. Hopefully he can still qualify for Tokyo via ranking.

Thank you, I didn't know. So the two finalists make it and then three from Stage 3? I just assumed it was the four semifinalists plus one more quarterfinalist. As of now he's 7th in the ranking of those who haven't yet qualified, and Sirucek is 8th so hopefully he qualifies from here. Kou, Drinkhall and Robles are also in decent ranking positions of those still alive in Stage 2.

The two winners of each semifinal, which are played tomorrow morning, will grab the first two spots. Every other player who has played in Stage 2 will then play against each other in a new knockout stage, Stage 3, over Saturday and Sunday. The two semifinal winners of Stage 3 will grab the third and fourth spot, and for the men there will be a 5th spot-playoff between the two losing semifinalists. 

 

The seeding for Stage 3 will be based on how far players came in Stage 2. 

 

You can see how the schedule is for Stage 3, which as mentioned, is played Saturday and Sunday:

From what I can see looking at the latest update of the Olympic Ranking it doesn't seem that the continental qualification events counts towards the ranking. But I'm far from sure about this. Also, I'm not sure what events there are left if any to be honest for singles players. I have only read a bit that they would maybe do something for mixed doubles. But again not sure.

Okay thank you. As of now Gionis is in via ranking and there is still Stage 3 (plus players above/below him in rankings that can still qualify via Stage 2 and Stage 3)

 

I am very proud that Greece doesn't use Chinese table tennis players and we have our own athletes, so I really hope he can qualify because haven't failed to qualify in table tennis since 1992.
