    i will pray with you as well, limsy, so Tai TY can pull another great effort and possibly meet her potential nemesis in the upcoming WJC...hey, who knows, we could see a preview of the WJC WS title should both Tai TY and RI advance and meet in the U.S. Open WS Final..

    Yes, Tai Tzu Ying is another strong contender. I didn't forget, just haven't mentioned her

    First video I saw of them together was in a school tournament final 3 years ago



    The first big impact abroad was probably the Belgian International in 2009, where they won the WD.

    Menís singles:
    Marc Zwiebler (GER) vs Christian Lind Thomsen (DEN): 21-13/16-21/21-15
    Womenís singles:
    Yao Jie (NED) vs Misaki Matsutomo (JPN): 21-14/14-21/21-16
    Menís doubles:
    Ruud Bosch/Koen Ridder (NED) vs Marcus Ellis/Peter Mills (ENG): 30-28/21-12
    Womenís doubles:
    Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) vs Emma Mason (SCO)/Samantha Ward (ENG): 21-8/18-21/21-13
    Mixed doubles:
    Heather Olver/Marcus Ellis (ENG) vs Wouter Claes/Nathalie Descamps (BEL): 21-9/25-23

    This one, I believe, should be the Osaka International in 2009

    I want to see these happy faces of Takamatsu again, but I guess the Premier Super Series tournaments are a totally different ball game, lol

    ..appreciate the infos..
    Btw, the U.S. Open is not a PSS or SS level yet. It's still a GP/GP Gold level..

    Also, i don't think these 2 or even Misaki are ready for 2012 OG. Realistic chance is 2016 OG in Brasil...if they can continue their progress that far..

    I talked to my friend, the one who umpired Marc Zwiebler vs. Datt, it seemed that Marc got a yellow card for taunting.

    So vocal expressions won t be allowed either? No wonder the CHN players did not make the semis.

    Indeed, we could see TTY & Rat will dominate WS podium as soon as possible...

Ignoring the first set, the second showed that they can really push the Koreans to the edge. Compared with their previous meeting two and a half months ago, where they lost 21-17 21-14 in the India Open, I feel that this result is an improvement. It's just a pity that they have gone out so early in their last big tournament before the long hiatus.
    I do believe that it's good for Misaki to be prowling near the net, since she tends to rather aggressive there. Also, Ayaka has got substantial power.
    I feel that any drop in form recently is probably only temporary, since they have taken out some rather strong opponents, including the Chinese twins Luo Ying/Luo Yu, who will be the Koreans' next opponents.
    The prospects of them playing in London is however more bleak, since time is running out for them to climb up the rankings, and Mizuki/Reika and Shizuka/Mami are playing like madmen (or madwomen). But these two pairs, being the more senior and hence more experienced, should be expected to be the frontrunners. Well, there is always 2016 in sunny Rio de Janeiro.
    What is more worrisome is the need for them to stay in the national team, and with it, exposure to strong opponents. Given the swarm of talented up and coming youngsters eager to take their place, this may pose a problem.
    It is not unexpected for Park Joo Bong, being a Korean, to be a tough task master. But I'm really glad that he is coaching the pair. And with Zhang Yawen in Unisys to train with them, I believe that they can go far.
    Oh, by the way, Misaki and Ayaka are not a new pairing. They have been together since junior high school. I think
    If I'm not mistaken, they have been together since high school, not junior high school. Misaki completed her study at junior high school in Tokushima-ken while Ayaka spent her junior high school and high school time in St Ursula. Misaki went to St Ursula after completed her study at junior high school. They get a chance to pair with each other after Misaki enrolled into St Ursula. And in 2008, they succeed in their pairing. They won the WD title in the National High School Sports Competition (Badminton) by defeating players from Shitennoji. At that time, Ayaka was a 3rd year high school student whilst Misaki was still a 2nd year student. I think their international pairing started in 2008 as well because I remember I saw Ayaka and Misaki played in Japan Open 2008.
