China has finalised its squad for the Team World Cup at the Copper Box Arena next month – and the women’s world No 1 has missed out.
Following an internal qualifying tournament to decide the last two women’s place, Chen Xingtong and Wang Manyu have been added to the line-up, but world No 1 Chen Meng did not make it, having finished third.
It completes the China line-up, with Ding Ning, Liu Shiwen and Zhu Yuling having been selected before Christmas.
In the men’s squad, Yu Ziyang will be the final player competing in London, joining Ma Long, Fan Zhendong, Xu Xin and Lin Gaoyuan.
The deadline for all competing nations to submit their squads to the ITTF is this Friday, January 12.
