I was surprised to see Hayata miss so many of Kato's serves.

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 .....

Very sorry....Unhappy
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?
