I don't know her that well but, sadly, during the first two sets of the game last night I was noting her with heightened interest. She's athletic and a big jumper with a strong swing. She's had some time with the NT the last few years (she's 24), made the long list but not the final cut this year (which probably means reception is not her strong point).
Beyond our friend Neriman, I don't think Toyota has any other threats from the wings. I imagine it's going to be a gut punch for the team.
i wish Takahashi a quick recovery....i hope they can find someone to replace her bcz they seem to be doing well so far talking from the standings
