Postby wp12 » Wed Feb 24, 2021 2:05 pm

I'm surprised nobody posted this yet but this weekend the men learned who will be in their group for the upcoming Olympics and based on the pots before the draw we got the best group we could.

Group A
South Africa
United States
Hungary
Greece
Japan
Italy

Group B
Australia
Croatia
Serbia
Spain
Kazakhstan
Montenegro

Interested to see USA vs Japan. Wondering if the new rules will affect Japans play style at all for better or worse, and also want to see how much USA mens teams has grown since those two losses to Japan in past tournaments

USA was paired with AUS for the draw and the yanks pulled the more favorable straw. Realistically, they can finish 4th in the group to make the quarterfinals and then it becomes “any given Sunday”

Not much faith in the defensive game anymore.

On the plus side, Table Tennis seems to be working, so there's that silver lining. :roll:

I can’t believe Japan switched from their traditional double post offense to this ball-side driving. Who could’ve seen this coming?
