, I did capture the whole match but the sound was quite poor so it will be better anyway to wait for the upcoming version.
In the meanwhile, and while I'm also figuring out how to upload the whole Estonia match video without Youtube butchering the audio, here is a little clip of the Estonian International including price ceremony which was held outside of the match camera's field of view:

kento will attend austria internation tournament starting on 20th of february 2013: http://bwfcontent.tournamentsoftware...5-5D9090F9E1E6
here is the acceptance list: http://bwfcontent.tournamentsoftware...5-5D9090F9E1E6
i wonder if he is staying in europe or did he fly back to japan?

^ Most likely he flew back, he's entered into the German Open the following week as well
Edit: looking at both tournaments M&Q, I think realistically Kento should be aiming for (depending on his draw) SF/F in Austria and R32/16 in Germany.
In Austria, there is a lot of good players such as Tien Chen Chou and Yan Kit Chan, but his main competitor will be Sakai his team mate, who has the potential to really progress this year into the top 20.
Germany is difficult as well, depending on his draw I think he has a chance of winning his first match as long as it isn't against a seeded opponent.

he did it again. 15th win in a row. he just won austrian international with a comfortable 21-19, 21-12 against his countrymate TAKESHITA.
right now he is #62 in the bwf world ranking. after this win he will be about #56.
what really matters will be his performance at german open, because he will be able to make even more points there he is in the MD and will face a qualifier.

3rd title in a row! His season has started off a lot better than I thought it would. His rise in the rankings will allow him to enter the main draws of bigger tournaments and play better opponents. I hope he's not too tired for the German Open.

damn he is out in 2nd round of german open vs. chinese player BEN QIAO (16-21, 18-21). QIAO seems to be decent. i think he can go even further in the draw.

He just recorded his first win over a Top 10 player, Hu Yun, to reach the semifinals at the US Open Grand Prix. He will play Nguyen Tien Minh next, another Top 10 player. It will be tough! I hope people have recorded his games, I want to see his improvement!

Yeah, good result on US Open GP. Hopefully the same good result against Nguyen Tien Minh.
He also beat Takuma Ueda last week in Japan, pity that his team NTT East lost to Unisys 1-3.

Yep, he also has this bad habit as well when thing is not going well for him. Hopefully he can overcome all his shortcoming and achieve more than what Tago has achieved now. I am also still hoping for Tago to achieve more.

Well done by Kento today. Haven't seen the match but winning against Tommy Sugiarto in two sets is no easy task! Well done!
