Although he lost the finals match against Zhang Jike, Wang Hao has lived up with the expectations just by merely reaching the finals. 

After the competition, Liu Guoliang commended the work of his reliable disciple and at the same time, said that he could not bear to see Wang Hao being devastated anymore. 

"Over the years, Wang Hao has played in a lot of final matches in world competitions. He has earned a lot but lost more. Especially in the Olympics, it has destroyed him. I could not bear allowing him to be in the Olympic Games and be devastated again." Liu Guoliang said.
