Sugi's Adventures in Paris <---> Cheering Thread!
Sugi is the 22nd seed in the singles draw
She could be drawn to any of the following players in Round 3: Chakvetadze, Safina, Petrova, Dementieva, Schnyder, Hantuchova, Peer or Golovin
I hope she can do well at this tournament
Last year she lost in 2R to Aravane Rezai after leading a set and 4-2.
She's playing doubles with Katarina Srebotnik; they're combined ranking is 29. However, Ai has Runner-Up points to defend, so let's hope she can defend those points
Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours
Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.
