According to the current Women's World Championship regulations, Hou Yifan who has won the match for the title a year ago, loses the title after being defeated in only one classical game in the knock-out championship.

The ex-champion visited the press-center for the first and the last time in Khanty-Mansiysk. 

- Perhaps, it's all because of my cold, - Chinese admitted. - I got sick here. Unfortunately, the local climate is not for me..."

- Well, Khanty-Maskiysk is announced as the chess capital and a lot of important competitions are planned to be held here in future, - editor-in-chief of Chess-News noted. - Are you going to come here again?

- Actually, it's a very nice chess atmosphere here and from this point of view it's comfortable being here. As regards to future - who knows...

- Usually you are so good in playing main lines of Sicilian for White. Why didn't you play them neither yesterday, nor today? 

- I don't really know. The games were still interesting, I just should play better...
