This time, of course, there are technical issues, but most of the games I have lost so far have been emotional and I couldn’t show my performance, so I decided to control my mentality and fight until the end. was the most important. As a result, I think I’ve been able to put out the performance that I can do now. Technically, we still have a lot to improve, but especially in the last match, I felt strongly that our opponents were studying it. It would have been nice if we could have taken countermeasures during the match, but we were a little late in making corrections and were unable to make up for the gap that opened up in the first half. I was reminded of weaknesses that I hadn’t even noticed, and I found another issue for the future so that I can reduce those weaknesses. I definitely want to connect to the next one and become stronger. And I would like to continue working hard to stand at the top of the top with an overwhelming difference in ability.
Thank you very much to everyone who supported us until late. that’s all
