WTF Hayata was the last non-CNT player to beat the World Champion (in style !)... Kato went there , lost to LSW and although she fought and managed to get one game, she was never in a position to win or even to challenge seriously LSW
Yes but it was not the torunament where LSW took part. Of course she defeat some good players including Chen i ching and Hirano but they are not chinese players. There is very easy Way to get ticket to olympics, if she is Such good she Will win all platinum events in 2019.To be fair, Hayata had just won the Oman Open with the Finals being on Sun. Mar 24. She then lost to qualifier Yoo Eunchong 3 days later Wed. Mar 27 in a seven game match at the Qatar Open so fatigue could have been a factor. Yoo Eunchong is not a bad player. She also lost in 7 games to Doo Hoi Kem at the WTTC.
