    But I think Ai Goto is amazing. Despite her height, she can play very well, she has also beaten Saina, Porntip, Salakjit and Yippy. She is only 150cm tall! I wish I can be like her. :D

    YES ^^ I think so .
    I thought she's more technical than Eriko.
    But she couldn't go farther than Eriko, recently.
    last week's Russian GP,
    both Ayane and Ai played with China WS player---Xiao Jia Chen

    Ayane lose in three games, 21-17 8-21 13-21.
    however, Ai lose in straight, 10-21 10-21.
    That's what I'm thinking.

    I think Ratchanok must be busy resting for the bigger tournament, lol. The 1st seed is some player from the Philippines, knocked out in the first round by a Chinese

    I saw that quite a few of us are friends with Eriko Hirose on Facebook:
    http://www.facebook.com/profile.php...wall#!/profile.php?id=100002583341839&sk=info

    Sorry to disappoint you guys, but my instincts tell me that this page is not made by the actual person but rather her fan from Indonesia.

    Here's just a bit of stuff taken from the info page.
    Indonesian Yahoo address?

    Bad grammar. I'm sure that Suetyan would also be able to point this out :).. It should be "Minasan konnicihwa, hirose eriko desu".. Family name comes first, given name comes last. Plus the page is updated too frequently and every wallpost is liked by her. Strange, shouldn't she be training or something most? Lastly, most people would have pics of themselves that they've taken from their own camera or something, ie: look at others' pages, it would usually have pics of themselves eating at a restaurant or something with friends or with family, etc (pics that only the real person or someone close to them would have).. This one has none of those.

    Just saying :)

    haha, me too. I don't think she is the real Eriko. :D So, I didn't add her. lol.. I saw a lot of Indonesian fans creating fake profile of their favourite players like Eriko, Reiko, and etc...

    I think it's better to make fan pages instead..

    What the hell is this!

    Eriko Hirose has Reiko's pic as the profile pic!?

    @jhirata yes i saw that profile too and after few seconds i knew that is not her haha
    i dont know why indonesian fans just loved to clone badminton players
    its easy to spot the original or fake one,
    if ori they would not online so often accepting friend requests almost every second and you can see they upload off court pics of themselves.

    Don't try looking for Japanese people on Facebook. They are usually fake profiles made by Chinese/Indonesian fans.

    Japan is a very exclusive country. While some people do use facebook, most people use Mixi. It is impossible for people to access Mixi without a Japanese mobile phone number.

    that's true. Mixi is unique. Nobody can access to Mixi unless he/she is a user of Softbank, Docomo or Au. :D

    I think it's a cool idea. In this way, they can decide between keeping it within the country, or internationalising it. I did see some Japanese sports people (not from badminton) with Facebook accounts which I think are genuine, but there aren't so many. Usually they can speak English. But thank goodness, there are many Japanese users who upload at youtube. The videos are plentiful, interesting, have a wide variety of stuff and quite often in HD

    LOL, this must be the main number at Panasonic. Looks like she has more fans now. Perhaps it's time to start a Sayaka thread. By the way, has anyone heard from Gicutzu?

    Guess who this is? Electrifying hairstyle [​IMG]
