Comments by manager and players

Manager Megumi Kitta

"Cannot readily experience what the first game changes to the third game. For World Cup after the next time, both players and myself were able to have a valuable experience. Some first inning were obstinate, but it was simple and hit as expected in place that we got point. We think that we can be connected tomorrow. As Hong Kong becomes better than to this (as for the tomorrow's game), winner like today cannot do it. We want to fight well with resolution"

Shiori Tanaka (Saitama honor)

"We were largely late because of rain, but tried not to run out of concentration. We threw mainly on fastballs of wide throw and were all right as we got wide swing. There was Announcement of Cancelled and thought that this was international meeting, but was enough once as we assumed so that we were thrown even in what kind of timing"

"We were able to be stirred up from the first-strike decisively. It was shock to have hurt shoulder during camp, but we take and do in forward looking. As for after tomorrow, we play our part and want to fight by another two games well"
