    These guys are doing quite well now :)

    First Japanese MD pair to win a Super Series title.

    I think these guys deserve a thread of their own. I hope they'll keep improving and winning in the future :D..

    Yes, they definitely deserve it. I like Hirata very much for no reason. But recently he cut his hair >.<

    Been enjoying watching this pair play recently. They have some nice style in the classic push flat and drive Japanese tactic. They are definetly an upo and coming partnership.
    I think Hirata is teh stronger of the two with his PG Arc 10.
    Have you seen his yellow socks? Do Yonex make them? Id like to get a pair but dont see them in the new 2012 catalogue.
