    Who is Keigo Sonoda?

    Keigo Sonoda is a Japanese Badminton player.

    Keigo made himself known at the 2007 World-Junior-Championships. Many thought that he would specialize in Mens Doubles. But it looks like he would play Singles now.

    At the 2010 All Japan Championships held at the Yoyogi Stadium (in December) which decided Japan's 2011 National Team selections, Keigo made it to the Semi-Finals (in Singles).

    And at the 2011 German Open Grand Prix Gold (held this week), he performed well;

    * Qualification: Easily winning 2 matches to qualify (in quick 19 and 22 minutes)
    * Round 1: Defeating Carl Baxter (ENG)..............21-11, 21-09
    * Round 2: Defeating Ajay Jayaram (IND)...........17-21, 21-07, 21-14
    * Round 3: Defeating Stanislav Pukhov (RUS)......21-17, 21-12

    Today, at the Quarter-Finals, Keigo will be facing Boonsak Ponsana (THA), seeded No.3. Let's see how Boonsak can stop Keigo here.

    And let's start a thread to provide info about Keigo Sonoda at BadmintonCentral.

    He is as young as Kenichi Tago because they participated in the 2007 World Junior Championships in the same team.

    Not much is known about Keigo Sonoda, although we could find these info;

    * BWF member ID..........90623
    * Hometown..................Kumamoto Prefecture
    * Old School..................High Higashiyatsushiro
    * Club..........................Tonami Transportation

    Perhaps, our BCers from Japan can translate his club's info for us, as given in this link below;

    LOL, you're like a vending machine. Press the Keigo Sonoda button and soon the thread is overflowing with photos and videos from goodness knows where. I'll probably need a week to source out all the material. But Keigo is probably not most BCer's cup of tea [​IMG]. Are you into Sayaka [​IMG]? I mean, the other one [​IMG].
