Saw Akiko win the Asian Championships. She had a tough match against Liu Jing-Jing (CHN) but except that, it was quite a smooth tourney for her.

She does play two-handed both sides. Good footwork. She does not commit many mistakes. Hits flat.

The thing is she can suddenly hit a killer during a rally at a moment you would not expect it. Her two-handed shots allow her to find good angles. However, I seem to remember she prefers to hit inside-out shots.

Her serve did not strike me, though it was regular. She can progress in this field .
