The last episode of Saki was released on September 28, 2009. At that time, the manga chapters were around 53-55. Chapter 55 was released in September 2009, if I recall correctly. Chapter 55 showed nothing about Inter-high opponents, it was about Yumi and Momo. Only in Chapter 56 that we were shown a glimpse of Kiyosumi's future opponents, but Chapter 56 was released in December 2009, so the anime went ahead of the manga and even included some spoilers about Nationals. Since Chapter 56 of the manga wasn't out at that time yet, the anime production staff had no way of knowing anything about Eisui, Rinkai, future opponents and matches etc unless it was Ritz who was behind these 'fillers'. Since everything in the nationals' preview has been made canon now(Jindai, Awai, Toyone in BD version, Nodoka and Hatsumi's match) you're not gonna say that the production staff predicted this, right?
I guess you can say that I'm a diehard fan of the series ;P
