    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.

    they started with Nozomi's short interview followed by Misaki/Ayaka match. Nozomi said that's very bad that Eriko is not feeling well, she is looking forward to play with her.

    It's OK.

    I was sent this article;
    http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/sp20111212a1.html

    Nozomi Okuhara said "This hasn't sunk in yet because I didn't play today, but I'm happy,"

    "I wanted to play the final. Next year will be tough for me after I won here. I'll try to enjoy the game of badminton without succumbing to pressure."

    This is the interview of the final. But what I mean is the interview of semi-final by phil-mm.
