    LD tried two top spin cross court shots, one forehand and the other backhand which failed to fool VA.
    VA was very alert. That may have an impact on the match.

    I did it!
    It was very hard but I enjoyed it.
    But this is the second longest game in my history

    Japan had to watch in the middle of the night; thank you for your support.
    And thank you for the many warm messages too! I can not return it all, but I always read and get strength from them.

    I will appear on Fuji TV (Mezamashi news show) at 7 o'clock.

    Saina nehwal said after the finals "mera petrol khatham ho Gaya dhekthe dhekthe"

    It means " I ran out of fuel , just by watching the match"

    It was one of the fantastic match I have ever seen. Nothing separated the two. Nozomi won it by a whisker.

    At the comments below the WS final retransmission on the Chinese website "aiyuke" folks are all commenting on the energy and spirit NO transmitted to them during the match and generally. It seems that her demeanor, attitude and composure left a deep impression on the Chinese fans

    I think it left a deep impression not only on her fans, but all of her opposition.

    that raly was amazing, you could hear Okuhara heavily breath on the last shots, i thought she was going to cry but managed to fight back and win. Little by the size but giant by the heart

    Don't you know that all three WS was at the same 2011 World Junior Championships podium?
    Ratchanok Intanon, gold medalist
    • Nozomi Okuhara & Carolina Marin, bronze medalist

    All the three WS above have already became World Champions

    2011 WJC winners:

    both players exhausted

    i don't know about any of you, but, i'd be demanding a chair so i could sit down for a minute during the 2 minute interval.
    is that asking too much?

    Yuki Fukushima/Hirota the silver medalist in Glasgow. Defeated PV in that jr world championships, where RI won gold, CM and NO Bronze
    It's surprising she's not playing singles, even though being pretty good in junior days

    She looked pretty natural in the doubles actually. Looks like it suits her.

    according to myself:

    _best match: ws final
    _play of the tournament

    _rising star: Yufei
    _most improved player: gilmour
    _biggest disappointment: marin couldn't defend her title while she said she's better than last year
    _moment to remember: [​IMG]
