May 14, Aiko's Apology
(Aiko's response to the fan who showed his disappointment about her attitude after the tough loss.)
Everyone who gave me huge support today at the tournament, thank you very much. I played my best, but the result was unfortunate. Morita played really great, and also I have some things to improve for the next.
I'll switch my mind, and will do my best again.
I remember leaving the court without saying thank you or anything after the match. I really feel bad about the fans who supported me during the match. I know this sounds like an excuse...but after the match, I couldn't face up...didn't think anything that time. I am really ashamed as a pro. I am sorry for my fans. I understand that fans wouldnt support me like with my today's attitude.
As my apology, for the tomorrow's auction, I left my shoes that I wore today.
To (the fan who posted the message)
You tried to talk to me, but I am sorry that I couldnt respond. I'd like to apologize to your friend as well. I listened to him. Honestly, I was really glad, and those words gave me a huge encouragement. but it'd be very nice if you could understand my feeling as well. After reading your message, I really felt bad. I am really sorry even though you gave me big supports till the end.
