Timo Boll is the favorite for the Japan Open Table Tennis 2012 title

The Japan Open ITTF World Tour is starting today. Timo Boll is the top seed in the Men's section. Timo is currently ranked no. 6 in the World. 

He is followed in the seedings list by Jun Mizutani, Joo Se Hyuk, Chuang Chih-Yuan and Gao Ning who are No. 7, 8, 10 and 14 respectively in the World rankings.

For those of you wondering why he is ranked so low, part of the reason for the low ranking is his lower participation level in the World Tour (Pro tour) tournaments.
