Japan Open World Tour Table Tennis - Three Indian men in main draw

Japan Open Table Tennis World Tour updates:

A Sharath Kamal is seeded directly into the main draw.
Soumyajit Ghosh and A Amalraj qualify from group matches.

All three of them have challenging 1st rounds, which will be played tomorrow. Do cheer for them. It is rare to find 3 Indian players in the main draw of a major World Tour (formerly called Pro Tour) event!

Ironically, Soumyajit Ghosh and Harmeet Desai could not advance in the Men's U 21 section. This is hardly surprising considering that the competition in every single match is cut throat. Both of them did fight it out. Soumyajit Ghosh beat the group topper and Harmeet Desai won two matches and only lost 2-3 to a top Japanese player.
