XINXIANG, May 8 (Xinhua) -- Chinese table tennis players participated in a simulation tournament in Xinxiang, central China's Henan Province before a roster for Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is announced.

This tournament came less than 90 days before the start of the Tokyo Olympics and with almost zero chance of international tournaments being staged prior to the Games.

Both men's and women's singles top-seeded paddlers have made it through to the final with hard-fought victories. Zhou Qihao upset world No 1. Fan Zhendong to claim the men's singles title. Chen Meng and Sun Yingsha set up an encounter in the women's singles final with Chen emerging victorious.
