well, from the bwf records, it shows that Akena has participated in 3 tournaments so far,
and she reached the finals of all 3 competition.
thats certainly is very very impressive.
The thing i am concern is her upcoming matches, since she just started and won an SS. Hopefully people wont expect, or she wont expect herself to be winning every SS tournament after this.
From what i read, her next game is China SSP. i actually think that for her status, she should try to rack up more points now, participate in more tournaments so that she wont have to play qualifying, and can get a better draw if she is seeded. With so many GPG in current months (all the way till year end), it would be good if she can go for these tournaments, especially due to the schedules, many of these tournaments dont have too many strong players.
Last thing to hope is of course, that people do not over estimate her. Or else it might be the case of Daren Liew.

I think that even if she has a tough draw and she loses, I think it will still be a very positive experience being able to play against top players.

Well, at least she can learn from top players to become a more mature sportswoman.

Bwahaha, this girl! That's all I can say.

She is a complete player i must say. Very good to see a 16 year old girl emerges out from nowhere and beating reigning world champion.
Whoever beats world champion or olympic champion , they will get confidence which paves way for the future tournaments and motivates them to do much better in the days to come.

Her next opponent seems to be Mitani. Should be interesting, but thinking back to YOJ 2013, Uchida who was defeated in the final by Yamaguchi, won over Mitani in the quater finals. If she plays well tomorrow, she could have a pretty good shot at winning against Mitani.
