This result is confirmed.
First of all, congratulations to the Saki series! After 2 years of repeated choking, they have finally won Saimoe in spectacular fashion – claiming the prize with the semis to spare! Hisa completing the sweep was quite iconic in my opinion, as she too has been pretty unlucky herself in the previous two Saimoe iterations she took part in. The wait surely paid off in the end, eh?
As for Shana, this match marks her last foray in Saimoe, and while she wasn’t able to set the record of 19 individual wins, she was able to set a new record in terms of number of appearances. 24 appearances, 18 wins, 3 quarter-final appearances – that’s certainly no easy feat, and she’ll be remembered as an iconic figure in this tourney for years to come.
So a one-day break before the semis begin. More on that later.
