    Nope lol

    And I heard ZN had a big miss with his serve. I happened to miss that, unfortunately.
    Got this feeling that ZN has been getting too used to lower level of competition, getting dragged down by his partner. He seems to be forgetting how it is to play in highest level. Not good... but I can't think of any way out.

    Scrap the partnership post Tokyo. Give him best possible partner and make best use of ZN as he's in his maybe last years of his career. CBA is to blame.

    He should partner Chen Qingchen after the Olympics. Forget about MD.
    But I think retirement is most likely post Olympics

    But China already has 2 top pairs in XD. I doubt they'll do it.

    As for now Ou/Zhang is ranked 22nd in World Ranking and 20th in Race to Tokyo, 4th in China.
    With a number of tournaments, their chance to qualify to Tokyo is closing to zero (even without the tournaments cancelled I thought it was almost non existent):(

    They need to at least earn averagely 6000 points a tournament in average to possibly boost their rank to top 8. Which means at least QF in 750 above or SF in 500 :confused::confused::confused: And that's if both Han/Zhou and Huang/Liu are stuck in their current position.
