i love Shintaro Ikeda... he is very nice and polite! i met him in the malaysia open 2007.. i saw him then i call his name(Ikeda) and he look at me with a very pleasant smile then bow to me.. i guess he wanted to thanks us for supporting him...the person sitting behind me even misunderstand that he's a friend of mine! this shows how friendly he was that time!until ppl thought i know him~haha...most of the japanese are polite..

The Japanese Smile
Between them, Shintaro Ikeda and Shoji Sato have more on-court energy than a pair of Pratt & Whitney engines.
It's amazing to see their permanent enthusiasm.
They always remember to smile, even when losing.
In general, the Japanese and Korean players are quite a cheerful lot.
(Sho Sasaki and Park Sung-Hwan are exceptions - they frown most of the time.)
It helps to be enormously pretty as well - like Miyuki Maeda
A great many players take off their smiles the moment they enter the court.
Ikeda, Sato, Maeda, Keita Masuda, Kumiko Ogura, Reiko Shiota, Peter Gade, Lee Jae-Jin, Lee Yong-Dae, Jung Jae-Sung, Gao Ling, Zhou Mi, etc are a welcome difference from the dour faces of Chen Jin, Cai Yun, Tine Rasmussen, Martin Lundgaard, Lin Dan, Hafiz Hashim, Guo Zhengdong, etc.
Of course, a few players are also prone to quite a bit of nervous laughter.
Donna Kellogg is a prime example.

^^I don't know..^^
..if the person was making faces or not, but with a not-so-happy face like that, it seems like the guy has just lost all of his luggages at the airport with only a racket left...
