      Definitely. You raised two points that crossed my mind but didn't manage to address. Hayata hasn't beaten anyone in CNT's core besides Liu Shiwen but everyone can see that she's more competitive than...

      That is indeed impressive, but my point (c) in that you haven't proven yourself against a CNT player until you beat them more than once still stands.

      ITO is undeniably impressive but her feats of...

      LOL. But now that Ishikawa and Kato are going, Ito's first round exit in the Japan Open lost her what could have been a big lead in the points race. It's still to early to say anything yet. The...

      Actually another interesting team to analyse would be the German women's team. They seem to have no front runner at the moment. The team that won silver in Rio don't seem to be very active on tour,...

      I think China's selection is split into 2 categories:

      Chen Meng, Wang Manyu, Sun Yingsha (3 choose 2)

      Liu Shiwen, Ding Ning (2 choose 1)

      Maybe Zhu Yuling is somewhere in there since she won...

      I wonder if the Chinese have an internal metric for selection as well. In their case it would be something along the lines of number of tournaments won, not how far one progresses in a tournament. I...

      Makes you wonder if they are able to identify talent so early. The correlation being 'appear on reality show -> become JPN #1' lol

      I would like more exotic fruit names for techniques. Maybe 'plucking the carrot', 'slicing the orange', 'cracking the durian'.

      Ok i've seen Mima's interview video after the match. She was devastated and in tears. No way the final was faked. Wang Yidi won fair and square.

      No reason for her not to care since winning the final would put her way above her compatriots in terms of ranking. If she really doesn't care then she's way over confident.
