    So Nozomi isn't invincible after all [​IMG]. Too bad Sayaka lost to Megumi, but I'm glad that Megumi is doing well. Feel really sorry for her after she was dropped into the B team. Tomorrow's match against Shizuka Uchida should be interesting. Yuki Fukushima from Aomori Yamada HS beats Masayo Nojirino 17-21 21-19 23-21 in a titanic battle lasting 70 minutes [​IMG]. She will be meeting mighty Minatsu tomorrow.

    Interesting dance. Nice to see so much greenery in a city with massive urban sprawl. Looks like it's in Odaiba

    No the french in the first video for Flashmob 2010 ... HKV is just showing it for the Danish flashmob 2011 participants .... he is indeed the Solibad ambassador for Denmark and perhaps the organizer of the flashmob, now joined by PG I believe.

    WOW!! I had been wondering how Ayane was going to fare against a top gun like Tine, but she performed brilliantly. She was fast, flexible, had a repertoire of nice strokes, chose her shots well, and had reasonable power. Even the coaches looked impressed. And lol, she did half a piroutte on court. Not just once, but twice!

    Lol, you mean our Nozomi. Haven't you already switched allegiances after seeing her maul SE? I'm sure you're now a huge supporter. Seriously, she lost to a Chinese. So I suppose that is forgivable. The fact Nozomi's nemesis is meeting that of Sonia makes an otherwise boring match between two Chinese something to look forward to

    Lol, isn't kawaii used to describe only girls? Huang Yuxiang must be sick of hearing Kento's name, after losing twice to him in a span of just five days

    Not really switched, I have seen the way the team trains and therefore it is no suprise that none of then makevit past the 1st round of tournaments (except RB/GW and CA/IB)Anyway she can play again for the next few years.:) where's Ratchanok btw ? Isn't she still young enough for this ?:p and who on earth was the 1st seed in the WS draw ?

    The best thing about Momota Kento is that he is a leftie ! Therefore guarenteed to go on to sucess. Huang Yuxiang I have never really considered to be that great. I saw him play at the YOG and he wasn't amazing, just very good. Not really talented, more the fact that he probably hasnt dobe anything else apart from badminton his whole life. certainly not as good as Wang ZM, Zhou WL, Tian Houwei etc etc

    Among these three girls, Ai, Sayaka, and Ayane, I like Ayane more than the others.
    Ai plays technical, but it didn't work usually.
    Sayaka, who I support as she played NewZealand2009, so powerful and decisive!
    but didn't played more technical shots.
    Ayane really performed well these years. But couldn't handle the powerful players like Tina.
