    yes. And Nozomi Okuhara is the youngest WS champion (16 years old). She breaks the record of Aiko Miyamura who won the WS champion at the age of 18.

    Hahaha...... That's sure a BIG trophy for her to handle.

    I bet the tournament organisers never expected a 16-year old to win that trophy.

    nice phots,
    just wondered: why do the players have numbers on their shirts/shorts (Tago is number 3, Sasaki 18)?

    The smile that lights up a thousand rooms. What's there not to love about little Noz? Congrats to her; on to bigger and better things.

    It is the 2nd gymnasium of the Yoyogi National Stadium as used/built for the '64 Olympics for the basketball event and nowadays still used for basketball mostly (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/国立代々木競技....B2.E9.A4.A8_2)

    Thanks, suetyan, for all the photo uploads, and for translating the Japanese names.

    Looks like all the organisers are trying to be the one with the largest trophy size to human size ratio. Nozomi should win, since she is so small, lol.

    Looks to me like a huge cooking pot containing seaweed jelly topped with Azuki beans.

    Her opponents certainly weren't smiling as much, lol.
    Poor Yuki Fukushima lost to Baby Nozomi yet again this year.
    Minatsu received a 9-21 drubbing in the rubber.
    And I don't recall Sayaka Sato ever throwing her raquet into the air after a match. (3:22 in the video below)
    As for Eriko, she must have run off to hide . Just joking, of course.
