It is Strange to se that Those players Which really use spin improve with the new ball ( Timo Boll)
And the Chinese Which live of speed cant get used to the new ball.
The predictions were the opposition, everybody meant the the new ball would kilo the spin game
And Tabletennis would turn into a Hitting game.

What is Your view on this situation have we read the situation wrong or is it Maybe the reduced pace that helps the spin players ?

Will this help Defensive players as Well ?

My understanding is that they changed the algorithm for the ranking system. I think that the current system is weighted heavily on recent results hence the odd rankings.

July 2018

1 1 FAN Zhendong CHN 17001
2 4 BOLL Timo GER 15205
3 5 LIN Gaoyuan CHN 14964
4 3 OVTCHAROV Dimitrij GER 14465

8 10 HARIMOTO Tomokazu JPN 13034
9 7 WONG Chun Ting HKG 12969

Interesting that Ma Long is number 6 (I thought he'd be number1) and Timo Boll is number 2. Xu Xin is now ranked above Ma Long. Harimoto went up 2 spots.

1 2 ZHU Yuling CHN 16074
2 3 WANG Manyu CHN 15669
