    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.

    Oh god, seems Ohori was able to drag AY down to her considerably lower level. Stream is laggy af, so I only see snippets. :(

    Did Akane get a bigger trophy or does just look bigger next to her?
    And why is Hirota's bigger than Fukushima's? Questions....:D

    The singles' trophy is higher than the doubles' trophy, you may get overall size comparison here : 2014, 2015, 2016. :D
    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. :cool:

    Riichi Takeshita's victory is a complete surprise to me. I was thinking, if not Momota who may not be at his best yet probably, then maybe Kenta Nishimoto or Kanta Tsuneyama.

    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.
