    I struggled trying to edit the original Japanese PDF... I seriously need to become more computer literate.

    You are right about the livestreaming...JSports may have purchased the filming rights. The Saishunkan vs. Yonex match will be shown on November 8 on JSports-on-Demand (a subscription service). Unfortunately, Momota's match (NTT vs. Mitsubishi Motors) is off the radar completely. I really do not understand the machinations going on.

    Jeremy named Japan’s mixed doubles coach

    Friday, 10 Nov 2017

    KUALA LUMPUR: Jeremy Gan has been named as Japan’s mixed doubles coach and his task is to produce winners at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

    He will start work next January and his last day with the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) is next Wednesday.

    The 38-year-old Jeremy, whose appointment was announced by Japan BA head coach Park Joo-bong yesterday, is excited to begin his new coaching adventure in the Land of the Rising Sun.

    Japan has grown into a strong badminton nation and I’m happy to be part of it now,” said Jeremy, who was honoured that Joo-bong has given him the privilege to be a coach with him."

    Coach Park is a legend. I’m sure I’ll learn much from him. This stint will help enhance my coaching knowledge. I see this as an opportunity to improve my credentials as a coach."

    Japan has good players in all events, except mixed doubles. I’m honoured to be entrusted with the responsibility of changing their mixed doubles fortunes.

    Malaysia doesn't have so much XD talent either. CPS and GLY were a standout pair, but I struggle to see other contenders for world/Olympic medals.

    I think Yu Igarashi will able to beat Kodai Naraoka at Round 2. Yu Igarashi won easily against Kodai at Finnish Open 2017 (straight games 21-18, 21-9)

    My predicition is Momota vs Sakai (in SF) and Momota vs Nishimoto/Tsuneyama (in Final)

    As overall picture, Kento Momota Road to Final :

    R1 : vs Qual. players
    R2 : vs Kazuteru Kozai
    QF : vs Riichi Takeshita/Hashiru Shimono
    SF : vs Kazumasa Sakai/Yu Igarashi/Kodai Naraoka
    Final : vs Kenta Nishimoto/Takuma Ueda/Kanta Tsuneyama

    Looks like we're sh.. out of luck, mate. At this point, smash and net.tv would have surely mentioned something if they were broadcasting, but both the channel and the website are barren. :(

    I wouldn't be so sure about it. He's since reached the final of a GP tournament, beating Hsu Jen Hao and forcing Khosit Phetpradab into a third. Both players ranked above Yu Igarishi. He also looked really convincing against Wong Wing Ki Vincent at Macau. Igarishi is probably still the favourite, but I reckon a matchup between the two guys that will surely be #1 and #2 for Japan is quite the prospect.

    As far as I know, the All Japan Championships are only being shown on NHK BS1, one of NHK's satellite channels. If anyone has access to NHK BS1 (I certainly don't), then the fun starts on November 30, 10:00 am.

    Tony Gunawan is the head coach of team Tonami. Surely he should check on the potential opponent to his team
    Also, as an American players, I think he also wants to meet some acquintances in the past during this tournament

    Wow I don't know that Tony has been coaching in Japan as well all this time. I thought he is still heading his own club in Orange County, California.

    Although Tony Gunawan is a coach at Tonami, the head coach is actually Masuda Keita (who also doubles as National Team B coach). See http://www.tonami-badminton.jp/players_staff.html for the team/staff list.
