I didn't watch it live so can anyone explain what JJH got the 2nd yellow card for that resulted in a point being taken away?

Apart from the tournament, the quality of most of matches was poor, to be honest it was unwatchable.
Only a few matches had a good quality and I am not sure why wtt is uploading so bad videos. Some were even having blurry filters !!!

The video is horrible, The camera is so faraway that I cannot see the ball during play. In contrast with the also ongoing Chinese National Games, their camera angle is more online spectator friendly. Kudos to the Chinese side.

OK, now I want to state a little observation: In the game above btw Hugo versus Simon, I see that these two European players play very faraway from the table. Almost 4-5 meters away, looping to and fro. In contrast, the Chinese side play much much closer to the table and their play style is more counter-topspin and quick counter attacking style.

Anyone on the same page as I am. I mean I hardly see the Chinese Games participant play as such distance as Simon & Hugo.

Winning this event put Hina Hayata at #21 on the world ranking list ... up 6 spots. I want her to win the Asian Championships to move up even further!

Unfortunately, even a victory will bring her a maximum of 500 points ...
Will enter the second ten, but not higher than 17th place ...

We wish her the best of luck in Doha and the World Championships in November!
