    Almost everyone in the professional arena has a sport other than their main sport as a stress reliever. I think LD plays football too. :D If only Man U plays badminton as a stress reliever :)

    I was watching her recent loss to Ma Jin/Tang yuanting.

    I noticed that her serve seems illegal to me. She starts her motion, pulls back, then starts again.
    Anybody else notice this?

    Misaki-chan is as cute as ever. But I wonder what happened to her creativity, to her imaginative shots. The Japanese coaches are ruining her.

    Now, pine Tomomi Saki has been able to successfully transfer a person in Tokyo a variety of trams. She said: "As a national team player, an annual competition in foreign as well as domestic training camp for more than 200 days and therefore, a man of leisure time I would go to some tram've never been to a place to relax and eliminate your stress and tension. . "


    Songyou Misa Yuki was born in Tokushima Prefecture south of Honshu. She had won the game 4-6 grades pupils Japan singles champion, three-year junior high school, she won the singles title at the Japan National Junior competitions. After that, the Friends came loose Miyagi badminton Strong School - San Viru Tesla · Intech school to high school.

    Been very impressed with Matsutomo/ Takahashi recently. Beaten Bao/ Tang Jinhua and Pedersen/ Juhl recently. They never seem go get well beaten in a game either. Always within a few points.

    Should win their home Superseries event tomorrow.

    Hope to see Misaki have some better XD performances with Hayakawa from now.
