Nozomi Okuhara ( 奥原希望 )
Let's start a thread for Nozomi Okuhara.
Nozomi Okuhara surprised everyone when she, participating as a qualifier, won the 2011 Austrian International Challenge Womens Singles title. She won all her matches without losing a game.
Nozomi's current BWF ranking is around 80th-90th. A year ago, she was below the 300th.
Today, at the 2011 Indonesia GP Gold tournament, Nozomi will be facing an experienced INA player, Maria Febe KUSUMASTUTI in Round 1 (in about 2 hours' time).
Let us follow Nozomi Okuhara's progress.

Nozomi the Great is truly incredible. In addition to strong legs, she has tremendous upper body strength too. Her opponents all looked to be in despair.
