Thanks again. The photos are coming out one at a time, lol
That's a good idea. I was just thinking about it. The Japanese fans search for their sports stars using kanji names instead of English ones, so I suppose the viewership for this thread will probably increase even more
haha here you go.. two photos this time
2011 World Championships: 4 JPN WD pairs have qualified
It's great that Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi have qualified as the 4th JPN WD pair at the 2011 World Championships.
On Monday, 08-Aug (Round 1), they have a Bye.
On Tuesday, 09-Aug (Round 2), they will face either Ng Hui Ern/Ng Hui Lin (MAS) or Anna Kobceva/Elena Prus (UKR).
I think Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi can make it to Round 3, where they should expect to find their teammates, Miyuki Maeda/Satoko Suetsuna , waiting for them.
2011 World Championships: Could Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi make it to Round 3?
In Round 1, Ng Hui Ern/Ng Hui Lin (MAS) defeated Anna Kobceva/Elena Prus (UKR) 21-14, 22-20 in 27 minutes.
Today, in Round 2, Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi  will face Ng Hui Ern/Ng Hui Lin (MAS). Could Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi make it to Round 3?
I say they can.. have faith in them although they are up against my country's players

2011 Japan Open: Misaki Matsutomo will try again
2011 Japan Open
In Round 1,
* Womens Doubles: Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi will face Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl (DEN)
* Mixed Doubles: Kenichi Hayakawa/Misaki Matsutomo will face Lee Yong Dae/Ha Jung Eun (KOR)
Probably the Womens Doubles match is the easier one to win.
lol.. Chris, you are posting these everytime the japanese players are playing. lol
Now you know: I am a Misaki's fan
Now you know: I am a Misaki's fan (who follows her matches whenever she plays).
not only her, but other japanese players as well including tago kenichi.
What to do?
I am such a BIG fan of so many players.
2011 Denmark SSP: Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi won in Round 1
2011 Denmark SSP
Yesterday, at the XD Qualification Rounds, Kenichi Hayakawa/Misaki Matsutomo lost to Ko Sung Hyun/Eom Hye Won (KOR) 14-21, 14-21 in 25 minutes.
(We can see all the 5 KOR XD pairs qualifying to the Main Draw. KOR are growing strong in XD)
Just played hours ago, in the WD Round 1, Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi defeated Cheng Shu/Pan Pan (CHN) 21-19, 21-17 in 42 minutes. It looks like MM/AT will be facing teammates Miyuki Maeda/Satoko Suetsuna  in Round 2.
2011 Denmark SSP Round 2
Miyuki Maeda/Satoko Suetsuna  were defeated by unseeded Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl (DEN).
We now have a Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi-vs-Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl match.
so ecstatic that misaki matsutomo/ayaka takahashi managed to beat*Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl...
Lol, why the shocked icon? Last month in the Yonex Japan Open, Misaki lost in the first round in both the WD and the XD. But the scores were respectable against strong opponents; 21-19 18-21 14-21 against Lee Yong Dae/Ha Jung Eun, and 15-21 15-21 against Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl . So it was just a matter of time before they manage to beat them.
2011 Denmark SSP: Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi won in Round 2
So happy for Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi.
In Game 3, Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl (DEN) began strongly with a 4-0 lead. I thought it was over for MM/AT as the game moved on to 19-17 with CP/KRJ leading.
But MM/AT finished with 4 consecutive points to take the match 21-19, 13-21, 21-19. Long match, lasting 59 minutes;
Next round is the at the Quarter-Finals. MM/AT will be facing another home pair, Line Damkjaer Kruse/Marie Roepke.
I believe that MM/AT can make it into the Semi-Finals.
Yes, both the Danes and the Japanese had tough matches going into the next round. In addition, Misaki and Ayaka also played in the XD, lol.
Just like both of the Danes?
