Expecting Takamatsu to take this. At least end the year right.
Aya Ohori wasn't on the National A team before? How come she participates in so many SS events? I thought in general, National B team members don't participate in the SS events.
She only participated in Hong Kong (Okuhara replacement), Japan (many Japanese participants) and Korea. The only unusual one was Korea, where Japan fielded 6 ladies, including her and Kawakami.
she also played australia ss. japan fielded 6 ws again. she lost to chen yufei in 2nd round 21-19 21-18

Oh god, seems Ohori was able to drag AY down to her considerably lower level. Stream is laggy af, so I only see snippets.
MD Final Result :
Hiroyuki Endo/Yuta Watanabe vs Takuro Hoki/Yugo Kobayashi 19-21, 21-19, 21-5
That's the 4th title for Hiroyuki Endo himself
Congratulation to Akane Yamaguchi !
Akane Yamaguchi vs Aya Ohori : 22-24, 21-16, 21-19
Riichi Takeshita vs Kenta Nishimoto : 21-15, 21-18
Riichi Takeshita did it
A reasonably sized trophy!
TakaMatsu vs FukuHiro : 14-21
Fukushima/Hirota take the first game
Yuki Fukushima/Sayaka Hirota vs Ayaka Takahashi/Misaki Matsutomo : 21-14, 21-18
Fukushima/Hirota have got their first ever title at All Japan Championships
Did Akane get a bigger trophy or does just look bigger next to her?
And why is Hirota's bigger than Fukushima's? Questions....
The singles' trophy is higher than the doubles' trophy, you may get overall size comparison here : 2014, 2015, 2016.
Each players of pair received different shape of trophy. I don't know why. In 2016 it seems the doubles pairs receive only 1 trophy altogether except the mixed pair. But the previous year (2015) similar with 2017.
Yuta Watanabe/Arisa Higashino vs Yugo Kobayashi/Chiharu Shida : 21-23, 21-11, 21-6
Yuta Watanabe got two titles today.
Congratulation to our new mixed double champion Yuta Watanabe/Arisa Higashino!

Uber cup 2018 : Japan is the team to beat.
Have already been daydreaming about this wonder team since mid-year, hope that they win it gloriously.
Wonder who the captain will be though, one of TakaMatsu I guess, or maybe Okuhara? hmmm....
By May, Nozomi's world ranking will have dropped. Assuming her rehab and recovery go OK, she is going to be an awesome no.2/no.3 singles player.
