SYS 3-2 Hayata (13, -8, 7, -7, 9)

Last chance to earn 10 extra pts, get her first win and Hayata failed (once again). Gave up on the XD and still couldn't win. I've run out of excuses here.

Wow. Miwa loses 0-3... must have been that time of the month. Hina comes closest she's ever come to beating SYS.... She failed once again.. no excuses. I'm convinced that even if Hayata had won, you would have conjured up some type of criticism against her. But that's fine... she's got a good head on her shoulders.

What are you talking about? It went to 11-9 in Game 5, and in that game SYS benefited from 2 net cord points. If those hit the net, Hayata is the winner.

I know that result is what matters on paper, but you're acting like she had 0 chance when it's clear the match could've gone either way.

Watching the stream for Ma Long vs Lin Gaoyuan is like watching the scrambled channels on cable back in the day.

This has been happening all event, but today the scrambled video was a big part of literally every single QF match. This is completely absurd. Not only did they do nothing to fix the issue, but it's gotten even worse. I expect the finals to look entirely like the scrambled "Spice" channel 30 years ago.

I was watching Table 2 yesterday and it was scrambling, but not as bad as today. The next Contender event is in Doha and it's literally less than 2 days away. Hope it can get fixed soon.

I wasn't able to catch the Togami vs Liang Jingkun rematch but judging by the scoreline it seemed one sided for LJK, a shame for me as a togami fan.

Truls vs WCQ was interesting towards the end, truls doing truls things but wcq is just too strong right now

Togami was a bit lost, winning a total of 16 points out of 3 games. A bit disappointing.

You talk like it hasn't happened before. Hayata lost 2-3 once in 2023 and the score for the final game was the same, with SYS getting 2 nets as well, but Hayata was up 3:0 at the start.

WTT SCT Ljubljana 2023 QF Hayata 2-3 SYS (7, -7, -6, 5, -9)

It's ridiculous to put it down to luck at this point. She has lost to SYS 11 times before this, 7 times in 2023 alone. Luck doesn't work that way. Even Hayata said she felt frustrated that she wasn't able to do it even though she should have been able to do so after 2-3 CM at WTT Finals Women Nagoya 2023.

To this day, Hayata has defeated only 2 (make that 3 if you want) core CNT players. Hirano has defeated 5 (DN, CM, ZYL, WYD and SYS), 2 of which for the first time in 2023 alone. Ito has defeated 7 (DN, LSW, ZYL, WMY, SYS, WYD and CXT), but 0 in this Olympic cycle. Even though Hirano has the lowest number of wins against any CNT players, she has been able to score 4 of those 5 first-ever wins against the core CNT players when it meant winning all the way (backup link 11/26/2023 at 1:10pm), something that even Ito couldn't manage. If not for Ito's WR advantage, the point gap between her and Hirano would've been much greater than 34.5 pts and the race would've been over for her.

Once again, luck doesn't work that way.

Both SYS and Hirano had a few nets in G7 at WTT CT Zagreb 2023 and still Hirano won by a 5-point margin.

Hirano had tons of nets and edges in G5 and still CM came out on top at Asian Games 2022.
