Xu Yuhua: I committed a mistake in the end game
September 4, 2008

Probably nobody expected the incumbent World Champion Xu Yuhua to get into the list of the players leaving the tournament. But the fact is that after the encounter with Svetlana Matveeva she had to go home. But before that she had done the sights.

- What are your impressions of the excursion?
- I got unforgettable impressions. We had a great time. I am really sorry to leave.

- What prevented you from winning and thus staying longer?
- I was playing quite well up to the very end of the game. But then I made a mistake that cost me the game. Now I have to leave and I am really sorry for that. But I think things could have been even worse. I will try to avoid such a situation at the next Championship.

- Don't you think that your loss will somehow influence the mood of your compatriots, who continue playing in the Championship.
- They had a great time during the excursion so they must play well.
