Kento Momota: “Honestly, I feel so disappointed that I lost. But somewhere, I feel happy to be in an international badminton tournament (again)…

“Thank you very much to everyone involved in running this tournament. I am grateful to the people around me for creating opportunities to play matches again.

“I thought about many things after I lost. I found a lot of challenges and a lot of things that I need to do. I believe that it is still possible to evolve. I will come back from ground zero again and become stronger! I will do my best as a challenger from now on. I apologize.”
