"Of course, I will try to get another title of Yonex Open Japan for my fans in Japan and my sponsor, Yonex.
But this is the first tournament after Rio Olympic, so I want to enjoy playing badminton and want to check my own condition."
"I hope to play continue my good form from the Olympics.
Even though I have been feeling a bit tired after the Olympic Games I believe that I can play at a high level.
I hope to get to play in the semis/final. Looking forward to visit tokyo again!"
I am always very delighted and have a great pride in all the championships I have won.
And Japan Open is one of the tournaments I wish to win at least once in my life.
I really believe that all badminton players have the same dream of winning the legendary tournament like Japan Open.
I may have had periods of ups and downs. But I have always put in my best effort to win and, above all, to become the world's No. 1 badminton player.
'This year Japan Open will be the first tournament after my success in Rio Olympics. I look very much forward to competing again and to visiting Japan.
I like the country, the people and the food a lot :-)
