    Default Interview with Misaki Matsutomo and Ayaka Takahashi

    There is an interview with Misaki san and Ayaka san, but the interview is in japanese. Can some of the japanese bcers help in translating?

    q 長らくペアを組んでいると思いますが、お互いなんて呼んでいますか?
    a 高橋選手:まつともです。でも、高校はいる前まではみさきって呼んでいました。
    a 松友選手:今は高橋センパイ。小学校のころはあやかちゃん。(ちなみに試合中はセンパイだそう です。)

    q バドミントンとの出会い
    a 高橋選手:お母さんがやっていたので、ママさんバドについていって、遊びでやっていたら楽しくなって今にい たります。
    a 松友選手:姉がバドミントンやっていて、それについていって小学校のころからやっていました。

    q ふたりの出会いは?
    a :小学校の全国大会の試合で出会いました。

    Q お互いの最初の印象は?
    A 高橋選手:私もシングルスをやっていたのですが、まつとももシングルスで、見ていて強いなあと思っていまし た。
    A 松友選手:私もずっとシングルスでしたが、ひとつ上でセンパイがずっと優勝してて、強いなあと思っていまし た。

    Q お二方の性格について、お互いの性格をどう分析しますか?
    A 高橋選手:私はうるさくて活発ですが、まつともは静かで女の子っぽい子だなと。
    A 松友選手:私が結構ぬけてて、ぼーっとしていることが多いのですけど、先輩はしっかりしていて。負けず嫌い というところは同じかなと思います。試合では性格変わる感じですけど、センパイは試合でもあまり変わらない ですね。

    Q 練習は何時間くらいやりますか?そしてペアとしての練習時間は?
    A 高橋選手:代表のときは午前・午後で3時間ずつ。チームのときは日によって違うのですが3.5時間くらい。 去年はお互いバラバラだったので個人練習でしたが、最近はユニシスのチーム練習でまつともと一緒に練習する 時間がとれて、やはり一緒のチームでぺアとして充実した練習ができてよかったと思っています。私にとって松 友選手とペアとして練習できることがうれしいし、プラスになっています。

    Q 一番好きな練習、嫌いな練習メニューはありますか?
    A 高橋選手:好きなのはレシーブ練習です。嫌いなのは基礎や筋トレトレーニングです。チームのランニングは3 ~4キロ走るので嫌いです。
    A 松友選手:好きなのは、3対2のレシーブやフリーの練習で、嫌いな練習はランニングです。

    Q 試合の組み立てなどの役割は?
    A 高橋選手:私は後衛をしているので、打ち込んでいい球がかえってきて、まつともが決めるというパターンです が、私は後ろからの攻撃で試合を組み立ています。試合中はお互い気づいたら声をかけあう感じで す。

    Q 好きな食べ物は
    A 高橋選手:ピザとチョコレート、しゃぶしゃぶです。試合前、特別に選ぶものはないです。バナナは好きです( 笑)。
    A 松友選手:イチゴとご飯系。試合前も特に決まっていないです。

    Q 趣味とマイブームは?
    A 高橋選手:お笑いを見るのが好きで、マイブームでもあります。
    A 松友選手:部屋でゆっくりしているときはDVDを見ています。(邦画です。韓流は見ないです。 笑)

    Q 多くの遠征と試合がありますが、ゲンカツギなどしていますか?
    A 高橋選手:高校生の時は、勝ったときにウエアを着たりしていましたが、今はあまりなくて、でも試合前にはク ツひもをギュッと結んで出るようにしています。
    A 松友選手:特にはないんですけど、行った大会で1試合目に勝ったら、次の試合も1回目にやってた行動をちょ っと意識してやったりします。試合前にやっていたアップとかです。

    Q ツアーで海外の試合に出られる際は、試合以外で現地で楽しんだりする時間はありますか?またその際はどんな ことをしますか?
    A 高橋選手:日本にいるときは外に行くんですが、海外にいるときはあまり出たくないので部屋でDVDを見たり しています。
    A 松友選手:海外に行ったときは、その国のおいしいものを食べにいったりするのが好きです。

    Q 勝ちたいペア・選手はいますか?
    A 高橋選手:日本の選手には絶対勝ちたい。海外の選手はまだ意識していないですけど、勝ちたい気持ちをもって 挑むようにしています。
    A 松友選手:ランキングがまだ下のほうですけど、日本の格上選手には勝っていけるようにしたいし、海外の格上 選手にも勝っていけるように頑張りたいです。

    Q あこがれの選手はいますか?
    A 高橋選手:日本だと末綱選手のプレーは見入ってしまいます。海外だと中国やインドネシアの選手のプレーがす きなのでよく見たりします。
    A 松友選手:特にいないのですが、前衛を主にやっている選手を海外でも見ています。

    Q 間近に大阪インターナショナルチャレンジがありますが目標、意気込みをお聞かせください。それから今シーズ ンの目標をお聞かせください。
    A 高橋選手:去年ダブルスは優勝で、ミックスは3位でした。ダブルス優勝は奇跡に近かった。今年は勝てるか分 からないけど、一戦一戦しっかり戦って上位を目指していきたいです。海外の試合は1回戦勝って、ベスト8と いうのしかないので、運が良ければ、ベスト4まで行きたいです。
    A 松友選手:去年ダブルスで優勝して、勝てるとは思っていなかったけど、一戦一戦勝つことで優勝できたので、 今年もそれを忘れないでチャレンジャーの気持ちで、優勝は難しいかもしれないですけど頑張りた いです。
    今シーズンのナショナルチームの遠征に行かせていただけるので、ひとつでも勝って結果を残していきたいです 。一回戦負けだと、どんどん気持ちも落ちてしまうので、どこかでしっかり勝っていきたいです。

    Q 最後に自分のセールスポイント。ここを見てほしいというところを教えてください。
    A 高橋選手:自分では結構気持ち強いと思うので、競った場面でも動じないとよく言われます。自分ではそう感じ ていないのですが、そこはよくいわれるので、堂々としてやっているところを見てもらいたいです。あとペアと しては私たちは一発力で勝っているわけではないので、コンビネーション、あきらめないところを見てほしいで す。
    A 松友選手:力強いスマッシュはまだ打てないので、それをかわしているところとか、配球して、相手を崩してい るところを見てほしいです。ペアとしてはと我慢して我慢してねばってのコンビネーションの良さを見てほしい です。

    Thumbs up WD winner of the 53th Japan Adults Badminton Championship - Misaki/Ayaka

    Congratulation to Misaki for winning the WD title of the 53th Japan Adults Badminton Championship. In WS semi final, she lost to Megumi Taruno 15-21, 23-21, 19-21. She nearly bt Megumi and step into the final. Well done Misaki, and all the best to her in JO 2010.

    Thumbs up Misaki has her best performance in Womens Singles

    Actually, Misaki is still participating in all 3 disciplines, namely;
    * Womens Singles
    * Womens Doubles
    * Mixed Doubles

    IMHO, Misaki has her best performance in Womens Singles. Therefore, I hope she could specialise in just the WS only in the near future.

    Hey, where did the cute video with the funny-looking pinafore go to?
    Haven't thanked you for all the photos that you have uploaded. You must have searched the entire web for them. And especially so for the update of the Japanese tournaments. The Japanese websites are so confusing. The alphabets make me dizzy. Didn't see the 3 photos with the blue tracksuits before. She looks cute beyond belief. Seriously, Misaki's performance in this local tournament is remarkable, considering the fact that she had an injury not long before it, and a probable lack of training. I think she has a pretty good insight of how to play the game, where to hit the shuttle and what her opponents weaknesses are. Not to mention a few jaw-dropping shots.

    They are already wearing the skyblue tracksuit there?!? Been searching high and low to find out the model number but nothing yet. Untill I just saw these pics I thought it would be in the 2011 catalogue ...

    As for Misaki's Dutch Open performance ... kind of anonymous really since she only participated in doubles and didn't exactly get very far .

    LOL, you're back in Hollanti, after a tour. The Japanese often do not export their sports stuff abroad. You probably need to read the catalog in Japanese and order either online or through an agent. I did that for some sports bags and bowling stuff
    It is likely that her injury has affected her performance somewhat. Also, she probably needs to play in the international circuit for a year or so

    Although she played in all three categories for the local tournament, she only entered for the doubles in the subsequent Super Series one, as well the Dutch Open. I'm sure she knows what she is doing. It is definitely much too early to make such a momentous decision as to specialise as a WS player. To do so is to end the partnership with Takahashi Ayaka, fostered since high school days. She is only in her rookie year for the Super Series tournaments, and time is needed to hone their skills, by playing against strong opposition. And at the tender age of 18, there's plenty of it. Currently, as long as she can move up in the rankings and avoid the playoffs, she will not have to play too many matches. I think the BWF should revamp the system. No one should be made to play three matches per category in one day. The body can probably only tolerate a certain concentration of lactic acid before performance is affected. But some, like Gao Ling, have managed to play in both doubles in a single tournament and even win
    I think it is possible to play more than one category by alternating WS and WD with different tournaments, since there are more of them now with the increased inflow of funds. Playing more will garner more points to maintain the rankings. As long as the companies are willing to send them abroad. But Japanese companies are financially so strong this year, with hordes of cash
    There is also the Olympics factor. If the Japanese Badminton Association chooses its players by current ranking, then it will be disadvantageous by alternating the categories in different tournaments, as that will mean playing less tournaments per category as compared to her team mates. And 2012 isn't too far away.
    I believe Misaki is a clever girl, and will in due course, choose the correct avenue for success.
    The upcoming China Open will be a crucial test for her, with many talented Chinese as well as a certain Thai. I hope she can hold her own there, against such a strong field. Nevertheless, she should not give herself too much pressure to perform, since she's still so young
    Below is a video of her not playing badminton

    Yes I have the 2010 Japanese catalogue right here and the 2010-11 Fall/Winter in PDF but not in either ...
    As for which events they enter I would assume is decided by the coaches. Who knows, perhaps they see a doubles player in her ... Uchida and Kurihara both played WS and WD when they were here aged 19ish. Quite impressive to see them play actually

    What??? The video is only lasting 2 seconds?

    As to: No one should be made to play three matches in one day; I think BWF never expected participants nowadays to be still playing in all 3 events, namely; Singles, Doubles and Mixed.
