    Yes, Misaki and Kenichi may not win today, but they can go give the Danes one heck of a fight

    They're talented enough. I'm surprised at how close the score eventually came out to be

    Ha ha, didn't notice that. Used to like that when I was in elementary school, but only the salty Pretz version. Didn't like the Pocky chocolate very much. There's also a strawberry coated one, lol

    Not good. :crying::crying::crying:

    Just minutes ago, at the 2011 US Open GPG, Misaki Matsutomo/Kenichi Hayakawa were defeated in Round 1 by Shin Baek Choel/Kim Min Jun (KOR) quite easily (scores: 05-21, 17-21 in 26 minutes)

    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/match.aspx?id=EF6040CD-A136-4B6C-9AE7-53696474923E&match=468

    In about 4 hours' time, Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi will be facing another Korean pair, Jung Kyung Eun/Kim Ha Na [8]. This will be a tough match for Misaki to win too.

    ..to all Misaki's fans, if you guys have any insights, quick inquiry about Misaki being sponsored by Wilson. Is she using Wilson rackets or strings or both?thanks..saw her playing with a Wilson logo on her racket's stringbed in the recent U.S. Open..

    Yeah, noticed that she's using a wilson racket now... Probably it's because of the club in Japan that she plays.
