    That is sad to hear. Why I say that? Mostly because Yonex is a Japanese company and is THE major sponsor for badminton. We, the consumers, pay a premium for the Yonex brand from rackets, to shuttlecocks, to shoes, to clothing, and you name it. Can't they give a little special preference to one of their best players. Not to mention that they are beautiful and can easily be their models to promote their products. Anyone from Yonex reading this

    That may be true, but that premium is often recycled into the numerous tournaments Yonex sponsors. In fact, Yonex probably sponsors every international tournament that has any affect on one's ranking points, and as you can see from the numerous player endorsements and billboards at the stadiums already, Yonex hardly needs Japanese endorsement, its pretty clear cut to the Japanese that they are indeed the best, and the only brand that can compete in the Japanese eyes is fellow home-grown Gosen.

    However large Yonex may seem to be in our eyes, they aren't omnipotent. It takes numerous huge sponsors to sponsor a tennis grand slam winner's prize money. With Yonex often being the sole large sponsor (Proton, BAM, Victor, Kason, SOTX, hardly scratch the surface), they can't possibly support the livelihoods of every professional circuit player along with their own business agendas. Especially if their own Japanese players aren't the no. 1s.

    they are being endorsed/sponsored by Yonex too.

    I realized that they are. But if players from the biggest sponsor's own country can't get enough endorsement to make a living. That is sad for the sport. Well, can't solve the world's problem here

    Default good news guys, both parties denied the report

    http://www.sanspo.com/sokuho/070821/sokuho035.html (in Japanese)

    don't worry guys, this news article says Reiko denied the coverage, saying they'er just good friends, she hasn't seen the guy for tight scheduling of trainings and games. Another news also reported that a management office of the comedian officially denied 2's dating.

    I don't know the truth though, you may love to trust her comment at this time *grin*
