To beat Saina would be a tough ask for little Noz. I predict Saina to roll over her in straight games (while hoping for something else of course)
Sadly, I must agree with you on this, though a surprise would be extremely pleasant.
Still, it's early days yet. I believe it is a question of when and not if.
Can't forget Kanako's very pleased smile during the interval of a particular match.
Must count for something on Nozomi's future prospects.
