Yes, the Japanese fédération took a huge risk, giving their wild card to Sato.
Hayata had to win from dangerous opponents and maybe who play with her for many years.
Maybe Kato is Hayata's pet peeve, I don't know.

What I'm sure is: Kato, Mori, Sato will never be able to defeat a Chinese top player...

When selecting for the WTTC -  2017, Hayata also lost to Kato 1: 4 ...
Very pity....Kato is a very good fighter ... But the Chinese are also good fighters ..One will to win at Kato may not be enough against the Chinese ...
 I believe that Li Sun and LGL are very pleased with this unexpected gift ....One concern at WTTC less ....
 Although Hayata apparently will still play WD .....

Participation in the WTTC Hungarian (WS) would probably help Hayata to get out of the rating pit ....
Otherwise, it will fall to 40-50 places by autumn ...

Hitomi Sato is a fine player, but to be honest her high ranking is due to her playing well at a bunch of ITTF Challenge tournaments back in 2017 where there were no Chinese players.  The top Chinese don't have any problem against her.

Hina Hayata is fast improving (especially on the backhand) and has gained mental toughness.  She deserves to be in the WTTC and has a better chance at upsetting one of the top Chinese in my opinion.

What is the point here? Hayata lost the qualification match to advance. Not everything is about beating CNT. And if she does not grasp the chance to play in WTTC, she does not deserve it.

Yes, for Japan everything is about beating the CNT.  With Hina Hayata beating LSW and winning the Portugal Open, she was really on a roll and brimming with confidence.  If you're Japan, you want that going into the WTTC.  Hitomi Sato should have had to play Japan Top 12 as I don't think she's really done anything to deserve a bye so to speak.  Just my opinion.

Hina Hayata interview after losing Kato ...


(Many thanks Zeio for the translation!)

(For Kato's well-executed attacks,) I contemplated too much, causing the tactics to fail. I have not had a good solution to her countermeasures against me!
...My receive was completely shut by her serve today. I could not find a good solution. In terms of mental toughness, I was more vulnerable than my opponent.
...Not able to participate in the WTTC means I cannot earn more points, the Tokyo Olympics is getting farther and farther away from me. In the future, I can only defeat more Chinese players in the World Tour and earn more points (to improve the world ranking.)

Not a good idea to have Harimoto play all 3 categories. Might affect his performance in the singles which is the most important for him to perform imo. Also, why did they choose Harimoto with Ishikawa for XD? Especially since she and Yoshimura are the defending champions?

I was convinced TH had the best bh in the world, I don't see why his fh would not become the best in the world as well, he puts so much into it, some have theorized a danger of injury for the lower back but it seems the legs are mostly responsible and the torso does not travel much past the hips axis so I want to believe he is as safe as he can be and his fh is totally under control to utterly dominate until retirement. This guy is so phenomenal.

if his forehand will become the best in the world, he has to give it more than due attention and effort and long long hours like the Chinese players and well as typical of the Chinese play get a little decrepit in his backhand

An article by Nikkan-Gendai on Ishikawa's response to the voice of "change of generation." In the article the author quotes Ishikawa's H2H against China from the site Takkyu-Navi(which counts the wins in doubles) and compares them with Ito and Hirano.

https://www.nikkan-gendai.com/articles/view/sports/248688" rel="nofollow - https://www.nikkan-gendai.com/articles/view/sports/248688
Quote 「ライバルがいてこそ自分が成長できると思£ているし、年齢は勝負にな£たらそこまで関係ないと思£ています。卓球は作戦が大きく左右するところもある。どうや£て工夫していけるかが大事だし、(後進の成長は)刺激をもら£ている。焦りや危機感があるのはありがたいこと」
「年齢や今までの成績を一回なくして、また東京五輪に向けて頑張りたい」

"I think I can grow only because I have rivals, and I don't think age has anything to do with the outcome when it comes to playing. Table tennis is a sport where tactics will greatly affect the match. (The growth of youngsters) is stimulating. I'm thankful that there is a sense of angst and crisis."
"I want to do my best for the Tokyo Olympics again by resetting my age and past performance."

Here's what the Japanese netizens have to say on Yahoo. The article was picked up by the http://sports.sina.com.cn/others/pingpang/2019-03-04/doc-ihsxncvf9690709.shtml" rel="nofollow - Chinese media . The responses https://bbs.hupu.com/25871727.html" rel="nofollow - in China and https://www.ptt.cc/bbs/tabletennis/M.1551699659.A.B02.html" rel="nofollow - Taiwan are largely in line with those below.

Quote sat***** | 3/4(月) 15:14
来年1月時点の世界ランキング上位2名は自動的にオリンピック£表に選ばれることと、石川は中国以外には安定して勝てることを考えると、£表入りはほぼ確実だろうね。
本音では平野伊藤早田の3人で出て欲しいけど。
早田が劉に勝£たことでシングルスでも中国に対抗できることを証明したし、伊藤とのダブルスを考えても早田は多分3番手で選ばれると思う。そして個人的には平野と石川なら残りの1年半の伸び幅を考慮して平野に賭けてみたいし、「東京でメダル」を目指すなら石川でも良いけど、「東京で金」を目指すなら平野にな£て欲しいんだよな。

Given the top 2 players in the WR as of January, 2020 will be automatically selected as the Olympic representative, Ishikawa will be almost certain to be a representative, considering she'll be able to beat anyone other than China.
Though I really want Hirano, Ito and Hayata to represent.
Hayata proves she could compete against China even in singles by beating Liu. I think in terms of doubles with Ito, Hayata will probably be chosen as the 3rd member. And personally, I'd like to bet on Hirano taking into account their growth in the remaining 1.5 years. If the goal is medal in Tokyo, then Ishikawa is a good choice, but if the goal is gold in Tokyo, then I want Hirano.

Quote dse***** | 3/4(月) 15:01
石川の対中国戦を少しでも良く見せようとしている。丁と劉の1勝はダブルスの勝ち。シングルスは全敗。朱の1勝は5、6年前の朱が子供の頃に勝£たもの。当然、陳にも王にも全敗。石川が中国に勝てないというのは、ここから来ている。伊藤も平野もシングルスで勝£ている。この差は物凄く大きい。

Here are some bits of Ishikawa's matches against China. The 1 win against DN and LSW is in doubles. 0 wins in singles. The 1 win against ZYL is from 5, 6 years ago when she was still a junior. Needless to say, 0 wins against CM and WMY. This is why Ishikawa cannot beat China. Both Ito and Hirano have won in singles.

That is a huge difference.

Ishikawa who demonstrates unmatched strength other than China.
This makes it even more difficult to select from the point of view of gold medals.
In a nutshell, the best team member to win a silver medal.

No need to worry about the passing of a generation by the public!
Things like the passing of a generation will be fine if you beat the opponent, and if you keep losing, you will resign yourself.
Even the Olympics trial should be done in a form that looks neat.

I would like for Ishikawa to go on another happy path[.] You've already played enough TT[.] What do you get by beating Ito? Give way to juniors like Ito and just retire! With your good looks and youth, you can marry as many rich young men as possible and spend the rest of your happy lives[.] [Something about life with TT alone?] I want you not to disturb young people[.] That's what you can do most now

Is low-age limited to Japan? Ishikawa is just 26. It's better not to mention age until at least 30 years old.
[TL's note: I say she's already 26. Tokyo 2020 could very well be her last Olympics.]

Losing too much to Chinese players is too bad an image of Japanese players
Mima, Hina, Miu and [Nagasaki] Miyu will be sufficient
However, the experience of Ishikawa as a veteran is indispensable

Quote toy***** | 3/4(月) 12:19
「相性」というより「実力差」と「用具の差」。
回転量の多い粘着ラバーを中国はメインで使£ているため、対応するのは£しく、普通に打ち合うと負ける。

£助剤問題が£決されない限り、中国に勝てないのはやむを得ない。

Rather than "match-up", it's "the difference in ability" and "the difference in equipment".
Because China mostly uses tacky rubber with a large amount of rotation, it is difficult to cope with, and you lose when you hit normally.

China cannot be defeated unless the booster issue is resolved.

It's best to avoid quoting data from Takkyu-Navi because they're wrong.

中国のトップ選手に勝てないのに、ランキングが三位、四位だから、批判が出るのは、当然でしょ。

丁寧、劉詩ウェン、朱だけでない。
若手、陳夢、王、何卓、陳幸同、等著しく成長してる選手にも勝てない。

金メダル狙えるはずがない。

It's only natural for you to be criticized for you cannot defeat the top Chinese players, despite ranking 3rd or 4th.

Not only DN, LSW, and ZYL.
But also youngsters as CM, WMY, HZJ, CXT et al. who have grown remarkably.

Cannot aim for gold medal.

Kasumin, please defeat the Chinese players this time. Else, have the resolve to retire from the national team

This guy is so phenomenal.

He would need to quit competition to train FH  and that s something you cant do in months I see a lot of europeans junior with better FH than TH
