    Here's a chance for Misaki/Ayaka to shine, after a rather favourable draw; with matches that are not unwinnable against possible opponents Jung Kyung Eun/Kim Ha Na, Mizuki Fujii/Reika Kakiiwa and Duanganong/Kunchala.

    Ack, Malaysia 17-year old juniors almost made it! I think I seen this JPN XD do better than this, I suspect that they might not be totally in form.

    2011 Singapore Open SS: Misaki Matsutomo/Kenichi Hayakawa eliminated in Round 1

    .
    It was quite unlucky that Misaki Matsutomo/Kenichi Hayakawa had to face top seed Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei in Round 1 (after qualifying into the main draw).

    Results:

    Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei [1] defeated Misaki Matsutomo/Kenichi Hayakawa 21-13, 15-21, 21-18.

    MM/KH has performed well though; extending the No.1 seed to a 52-minutes 3-games match. :):):)

    Had been feeling rather down for the last few weeks, after my favourite youtube channel (from Japan, obviously) decided to close the account. But this photo has really made my day. Thanks for the upload! Any more? [​IMG]

    The Japanese are very subtle in their actions, even in changing hairstyles, lol. A different hairstyle for a different occasion. But believe you me, Misaki will probably look cute in whatever hairstyle. By the way, has anyone seen the story of the Japanese girls who cut their long hair for the tsunami victims?
    Off topic - what's with Akihabara? Cyborgland? Something to do with Mayuyu, lol?
