    Mizutani vs Sora Matsushima

    14 years old. Maybe not quite Harimoto level at the same age, but not too far off.

    need to see Harimoto 's match at the same age.
    IIRC, Sora's FH is more powerful than Harimoto at the same age, but his BH seems much less deadly. Its good and steady but it feels to me Harimoto is/was taking the ball even earlier, and was more at ease changing directions more often (= playing along the line winners)

    Height will become his "limiter" if Matsushima doesn't grow past 1.7m in the next few years, standing at 1.55m back in January.

    Q.去年より動けている?

    去年は身長も低かったり体もみんなより全然小さかったんですけど、中学生になって身長も大きくなってきたので違ってきている。

    Q. Are you more agile than last year?

    Last year I was short and my body was much smaller than everyone else, but it's different now because I'm getting taller once in junior high school.
