Ryan Hart interviewed after Daigo fight at SvB 20-X has an interview with Ryan "Prodigal Son" Hart, following his 2nd place finishes at Super vs Battle 20-X for Super Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike.

This ends up being a pretty solid read, even though the English is a bit rough in parts, as Ryan breaks down the matches he won and lost and why he felt things turned as they did. Here's a clip.
3. We all know Daigo. and we know how good his execution is, but in the match we saw him drop combos with Cammy. Was he nervous?

Ryan Hart: No, I can't really imagine Daigo being nervous. For Daigo, I'm just some random guy who is only good in Europe. He has no reason to fear me, in fact I don't even think Daigo knows I have been around for decades and that I've won loads of tournaments around the world. So him not thinking I'm anything special works well for me, it allows me to surprise him which I have done time after time again. When he plays Justin, he knows who Justin is, and that Justin is the US's hope, courage, strength and knowing that strengthens Daigo in the match.

I just think his Cammy was rusty, he missed links which he shouldn't have. Alioune (Cammy master) spoke to me about the match and told me that Daigo was trying a link that doesn't even work on Ryu. This shows a lack of experience/knowledge on Daigo's part. I just don't see why he'd rather use a rusty Cammy over his expert Ryu even if he was trying to counter pick my Sim. I take that as a small compliment in any case. *laughs*
Thanks to Cheech Wizard for the tip.
