Tomoka Miyazaki

Been a loooong time didn’t log in…


Just got the chance to watch this girl played against Nozomi Okuhara in the QF of BWF World Tour Super 100 Indonesia Masters in my hometown, Medan, Indonesia. I was shocked when I found out Okuhara was playing in Super 100 right after the WC. I was totally expecting Okuhara to win the game, but Miyazaki was hard to crack. It looked like Okuhara was still not in her prime, making lots of unforced errors and mostly under pressure. Miyazaki ended up winning the game in rubber set.

I feel blessed to be able to see one of the top player in the world right before my eyes. My hometown is not known for hosting such event, only the capital, Jakarta and Bali have the infrastructures needed to do so. It is my first ever international badminton match I’ve ever watched live on site. Was sad Okuhara didn’t make it through, but this girl Miyazaki surely got the prospect to be something in the future.
