The world’s top-ranked doubles team of Ayaka Takahashi and Misaki Matsutomo, who won gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics, will take aim at another Super Series title at the annual Japan Open, which runs from Sept. 19-24 at Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.

“It is tough to keep winning the World Super Series titles,” said Takahashi, who teamed up with Matsutomo to win their eighth Super Series title last weekend in Sydney, during a Tuesday news conference. “Now we’re confident that we won’t lose to anybody. But we try not to lose the mentality of a challenger, and keep aiming higher.”
