      By the same token, Japan could theoretically make use of that to replace Hirano with Ito in 2018 and 2019, and Ishikawa with Hayata in 2019.
      Absolutely right! There was a chance of replacement !! And I do not understand JTTA .....

      FTW vs Ishikawa
      G1 3:7, 6:7, 6:8, 7:8, 7:9, 7:10, 8:10, 9:10(sideline edge), 10:10, SHEET, 11:10, 12:10
      G2 1:1, 2:1, 2:9, 4:9, 4:10, 6:10, 7:11. Phew...
      G3 1:1, 3:1, 4:1, FTW is using the angle here, 5:1, 5:2, Ishikawa catching on, 5:3, 6:3, 6:4, 7:4, FTW going for Ishikawa's BH, 7:5, 7:6, TO for FTW, 8:6, 8:7, so many nets and edges, 9:7, 9:8, 10:8, 11:8. ARGH
      G4 1:1, 3:1, 3:3, 4:3, 5:3, Ishikawa losing her cool, 6:3, TO for Ishikawa, 6:4, 7:4, 7:5, 7:6, 8:6, 8:8, 8:9(Ishikawa's dripping net), 8:11.
      G5 1:1, 3:1, 5:1, Ishikawa playing like poop, 5:2, 6:2, 6:3, 8:3, 8:4, 8:6, FTW catching breath, 8:8, 8:9, 8:10(no sideline edge?), 8:11.
      Age is catching up
      G6 4:0, 4:1, 5:1, 5:2, 5:3, 6:3, 6:4, 6:5, 6:6, 8:6, 8:7, 8:8, 9:8, 9:9, 10:9, 10:10, 11:10, 12:10(FTW's endline edge).

      Both coaches did their jobs and called the TO at the right moment. FTW got her tactics right but stamina couldn't last until the very end.

      G7 1:1, 2:1, 2:2, 3:2, 3:3, 5:3, 6:3, 6:4, 6:5, 7:5, 7:7, 8:7, 9:7, 10:7, 11:7

      *Bleep* retire, Ishikawa!

      well, it seems hirano and ishikawa arent really olympic material, when they even choke as best as they can to even qualify for the event xD Imagine the pressure at the olympics itself

      Well, it seems like she has the best chance of beating ZYL from the pool of available candidates (Ishikawa, Solja and FTW).

      unfortunately it is true

      I hope they really make an extra effort to work on these issues else Japan won't even lose to China but way before

      not much they can do about it. The players have to figure it out. Im sure they already have everthing possible to support them. Its not that other players other then Ishikawa and Hirano are better in general. Only Hayata comes close, but even as a hayata fan I have to say, then i wouldnt rate her higher then Ishikawa or Hirano in singles play. She is also quite inconsistant.

      Honestly, Hirano(17+1), Ishikawa(16+1) and Sato(17) are fit for marathon. They have been the most active throughout the year.

      Best chance indeed. The way she adapted in G6 and G7 was simply beyond Ishikawa and Solja. Not skills, not tactics, not age, just tenacity.

      And with the biggest fu yet, Hirano’s lead shrivels to a mere 70 pts, with only 2 majors and a T2 left. Despite finally getting her own quarter, has the easiest draw towards Semi, she just couldn’t hold it together under pressure. What’s the point of sending her to Tokyo ? Other than skills, mental toughness counts just as much, maybe even more. I just do not see the ”steadfastness under fire” in her to put up a meaningful fight. From here on I really don’t care whether Ishikawa or Hirano gets picked. They’re both impediments to the 2020 dream.The headless chicken description should be applied to her in 2 parts, headless & chicken.
      Ito is the REAL thing, the ONLY real thing for Japan now. Hayata, keep developing, your time will come after the pretenders fade away, soon.
