Message from Akiko Omae
Miyabi Inoue, who was paired with Omae, has decided to retire following this competition. Therefore, Omae set out to win in view of her friendship with Inoue.
It was Miyabi’s final match before retirement, so I was very happy that we could cap it with a victory. I myself have won in the doubles for the first time since 2016, and I felt happy and relieved.
I think we won the championship thanks to everyone's support. Thank you so much. I will continue to do my best!
