    Harimoto is still very young and oshima is not a rookie player he also has a lot of experience.harimoto will surely be ready for the next encounter with oshima

    If you've been paying attention to the T-league, then you would've noticed that Oshima has been getting a lot better in the past year. His power and consistency has improved quite dramatically. He's not first tier yet, but he's getting awfully close.

    Not really. You don't need a counter game plan for that. If you've followed the scene long enough, you'd notice that South Korean players are among the streakiest, yet have produced many if not the most powerful upsets in memory. Many of them share one common trait - high risk, high reward all-out step-around. Notable players from other countries are Gatien at WTTC 1993, Schlager at WTTC 2003 and Aruna at World Cup 2014 and Rio Olympics. Fang Bo at WTTC 2015 is another. The catch here is the high demand on form and stamina. That's why you see these players deviate a lot. But when that condition is met, this tactical style is the most disruptive. Coupled with the intense pressure, it's very hard to deal with and recover from.

    Now the problem is you can never be certain when it'll be coming ahead of time. In the same manner, the player who chooses to play like this will also find it hard to get started. Ito is the latest example.

    Take note how Boll started turning the corner much more from the 2nd game on.

    If Wang Chuqin wins he did have a game plan, when Harimoto wins against Wang Chuqin he didn't need a game plan

    So true... I remember Calderano taking so many risky shots against FZD back in December, because he realized he had no chance against FZD by playing safe. Last week, when he played Wang Chuqin, Calderano was much more conservative, because he didn't think he needed to take as much risks against WCQ.

    I guess the moral of the story is, if a non-Chinese player plays against a Chinese A team member, he/she should try to execute more risky shots for a small chance of victory. The alternative would be to play safe and have no chance of victory.

    It may e just my feeling, but the current Xiom rubbers of Calderano are not designed for a safety play. Since Omega V and epecially in Omega VII the Asia and Tour do need a very aggressive style, sometimes, when I play with a lower level player, I call it "humiliation mode" and in such cases I just change my setup.
    So my assumption is that if Calderano wants to keep the Xiom team, he has to keep to the most aggressive strategy. He has the nerve for that, just need some more confidence and constance.
