Shi Xunyao 3-0 Nagasaki, 11:4, 11:2, 10:4, 10:7 TO for Shi, 11:7

Nothing to do with skills.

This was better at the junior level - it is interesting how things diverge in such a short time...

It's almost as if the Chinese figure out how to make Japanese players look bad...
I didn't get to watch this, but that score line looks awful.  Aside from playing doubles with Kihara, she'll mostly have a few days off to mentally regroup as she's listed as the last player in the main draw of the Star Contender.

Gao Jun has mentioned that Lily has got to work on her serve.

Quote 为此,张安还请高军牵线,说希望能帮着跟中国乒协沟通一下,争取一个和许昕在2021年休斯敦世乒赛上跨国组队的机会,还许愿道“要是能和许昕配混双就不退役了”。高军回她,“你要是想跟许昕打球,你得练得足够好!先把你£发球练好了,才有资格跟许昕打。”

Gotta hand it to the Chinese.  They almost always seem to all end up in the semi finals.  

But...... Miwa Harimoto and LYJ, future world number ones (world includes China here).

We will see but LYJ, I have serious doubts about it.
Miwa Harimoto is just starting so we will know but....once CNT will have studied her game, she will probably be in the bag like Hirano, Ito, Ishikawa and Hayata.
Lots of people thought her brother would be n°1 but even if he is still young, i have the feeling that his best performances are behind him.

Miwa highly likely since we've not seen any opponent her age that good, but Lin there's enough competitors within his age bracket ( +4 or - 4 his age is my standard taking into consideration the Olympic cycle) that will be a big roadblock to gaining world number one. And he's gotta be reaching the semis or finals all the time for that to happen.

Europe's last hope, Sofia Polcanova, ousted by Zhang Rui of China.  If Miwa can beat FTW, it will be an all China/Japan QF. Go Miwa!

I am not sure but I think Ito Mima won tournaments when she was only 13 but I might be wrong.

Mima Ito won the 2015 ITTF Platinum German Open when she was 14.  There were no Chinese there, but the top players outside of China were there.

Miwa Harimoto 3-1 FTW
11:5
13:11
5:4, 5:9, 6:9, 6:10, 9:10 TO for FTW, 10:10, 10:11, 11:11, 11:13(edge by FTW's serve)
11:7

Miwa's shots are loaded with tons of spin, and she doesn't hit on the rise all the time, unlike her many teammates.

Miwa is such a smart player.  She knows she has a huge mobility advantage and knows exactly where to target her shots.

This Contender event just goes to show how world rankiing means very little at the moment.  Women's World rankings (Edit: I forgot 8 ... DHK), 9 (Diaz), 10 (FTW), 11 (JJH), 12 (CIC), and 13 (Polcanova) don't even make the QF.

Does anyone know what happened to Qian Tianyi?  She's listed as walkover in her scheduled match up in her opening round match up with Yang Xiaoxin.

経験ない早田が浮き足立つ可能性も高い
そんなときに石川か伊藤か平野かオリンピック経験者がメンタルの柱にならないと
Olympics are special
The possibility is high that Hayata, who has no experience, will get cold feet
Then, Ishikawa, Ito, Hirano etc. who have Olympic experience must become the spiritual support

何回も五輪出てるけど毎回浮き足立�£てる石川なんてメンタルの柱になれるわけないな。
Despite having participated Olympics several times, how could Ishikawa, who got cold feet every time, become a spiritual support?

Ito was 15 in her first Olympics. Ishikawa was 19 in London. Hirano was 21 in Tokyo.
Suppose Hayata will participate Paris Olympics, 24 is a very stable age, mentally speaking. If such a mentally strong Hayata is there, then no problem and whoever it is, I will support.

114名無しQ(・∀・)ノ゜サァン!!2022/03/22(火) 09:01:37.14ID:LTceKghJ
24歳での初出場がメンタル安定しているという考え方がおかしいだろ
30歳でも初出場ならド緊張だよ
The idea that your first appearance at 24 is mentally stable is strange.
One would get nervous if participating for the first time at 30

115名無しQ(・∀・)ノ゜サァン!!2022/03/22(火) 09:50:26.12ID:KqFIbvjl
今の女子選手の中に精神的支柱になれる選手はいない
他のメンバーを引�£張�£ていけるようなチームリーダーもいない
あえていうなら五輪出場経験者は少しメンタル的には有利というくらい
だからメンタル的な検討は必要ない
試合で結果を出した人を選べばいい
Among the current female players, none can become the player of spirtual support
And no team leader that can carry other members
If I had to say, those who have participated in the Olympics are a little mentally advantageous
So there is no need for mental consideration
Just choose the person who gets result in competitions

London, 0-4 Feng, losing in straight games
Rio, painful tactics and still losing to Kim Song I
Tokyo, losing to world-ranked 47
Do you need that kind of "experience"?
For team event, even Hayata/Kato/Shibata is still #2 seed, right?

There is no mental advantage, right?
Ishikawa: "What if I get humiliated in front of the world by getting a bagel again..."
Hirano: "It ends with me getting beaten to a pulp by China again..."
Only negative mentality

Judging from the current development, it's possible Hairmoto will become the ace 2 years later
But since the points in the first half is not sufficient, she may get recommended for the 3rd spot in team event playing doubles with Hayata

Harimoto will obviously be the strongest when Paris Olympics comes
But because it has to be decided ahead of time, there is not enough points and so can't participate
I think people will make a ruckus in this thread to let Harimoto participate

Miwa is paired up with Zhang Rui who she lost 3-4 in the Feeder series.  She will be extremely motivated, and I think she will beat her tomorrow.

Miyuu Kihara takes on her compatriot, Miyu Kato.  It could go either way, but Kihara has been playing a bit more consistent so she's my pick to win.

Women's WRs 1, 2, 4, & 5 mean a hell of a lot.  The other #s, not so much.

On Harimoto's world ranking in 2020, I made a prediction(based on then Elo-rating system) during WTTC 2017. Harimoto happened to comment on his world ranking after Tokyo 2020.

http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=78106&PID=981686&title=2017-wttc-germany-may-29jun-5#981686
Quote If the trend keeps up, at this rate, he will be within anywhere from top 30 to top 10.


http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=91046&PID=1120542&title=the-end-of-the-harimoto-dream#1120542
Quote   記者:為了迎接3年後的巴黎奧運會,你長期面臨的課題是什麼?

  張本智和:我想成為更有決心的選手。這次奧運會握拍沒有調整好,奧運會前就幻想「希望抽籤分組能對我有利」、「希望遇到好打的對手」等。如果下次不能把抽籤結果不好當成理所當然,還會輕易輸球。�£因為參加過一次奧運會,當然還想參加,我想下次能夠更明確地想好比賽策略。

  雖然(我的)世界排名很高,但不一定能贏過第30名左右的選手,並且最近完全沒贏過頂尖中國選手。我想今後3年是為了進入真�£世界前5的3年。坦率講,巴黎奧運會也不會是我最高光的時刻,但我希望能填�£�不足。希望進行一些能讓自己內心滿意的訓練。

Reporter: In order to meet the Paris Olympics in three years, what are the long-term issues you face?

Harimoto: I want to become a more determined player. My grip was not adjusted properly for this Olympic Games. Before the Olympic Games, I had fantasies such as "I hope the draw will be beneficial to me", "I hope to meet an easy opponent" and so on. If I can't take the bad draw for granted next time, I will still lose easily. Because I have participated in the Olympics once, of course I want to participate again. I think I can think more clearly about the competition strategy next time.

Although (my) world ranking is very high, I can't necessarily beat players around the 30th, and I haven't beaten top Chinese players at all recently. I think the next 3 years will be the 3 years in order to enter the top 5 in the world for real. Frankly, the Paris Olympics won't be my brightest moment either, but I hope to fill the gap. I hope to do some training that will satisfy my heart.

Unrelated news.

Yu Mengyu announced her retirement on her Weibo 6 hours ago.

Would have been nice to see her at the Singapore Smash.  However, she did end her international career on a high note by doing well at the Olympics.  Interestingly, her only two wins in T-League this season came against FTW.

But...... Miwa Harimoto and LYJ, future world number ones (world includes China here). 

Oh no, not for Miwa.  She will never be world number one before age 18, when she begins attending a prestigious university full time in Japan, with the expectation of doing very well in her studies.

That was an incredible comeback in game 4 for Kihara.  I thought she was down even further ... 3-9 maybe?  In any case, I remember watching the highlights of the Yang Xiaoxin/Miyu Kato match and YXX almost came back from a huge deficit in the last match so I thought there might be a chance for Kihara even down quite a bit.  Great show of mental toughness from Kihara.
