I am very happy to read all the postings here and be updated about how Japanese players are progressing. I must say I am also a supporter of Nozomi Okuhara but I suppose she made some bad choices when playing with Akane Yamaguchi who is also a very powerful player. Yes, Nishimoto appears to have improved but it is up to him how far he is determined to go. Momota's is great as usual. For me, it is always enjoyable to see Momota play especially when he is at his best. It is a pity Richii Takeshita is out. I think he plays well. Thanks for all the postings about Japanese players.
