Osaka F: Kops-Jones/Spears d. Date-Krumm/Watson 6-1 6-4

What a fall season for them

They will now be around 160 points behind Kirilenko/Petrova going into Moscow, so I think this how the final race for the 4th spot looks.

-If Kirilenko/Petrova reach the finals or win Moscow, they will automatically go to Istanbul

-Kops-Jones/Spears MUST reach at least the semifinals in Moscow to go to Istanbul. They will qualify if they win Moscow and Kirilenko/Petrova lose in the semifinals or earlier, OR they reach the semifinals and Maria/Nadia lose 1st round.

I'm happy for them, but I want Petrenko to get that last place.

shame watson couldn't get the doubles title as well, but I guess she was exhausted from that last match, what an amazing week for her.

Good job in final by Raquel and Abi though I would have loved to see Kimiko win.

Tough opener in Moscow for the winners, they start against Peschke & Groenefeld.

Watson must be dead tired but she really tried her best this week.
And Kimiko did her job for her host tour too.

Nice to know they are planning to play together some other time.

They are actually only 32 points behind Nadia/Maria. The Americans have to go one round further in Moscow.

What a week for Rocky & Abi! They didn't drop a set and only got extended to 6/4 one time Now GL in Moscow

Kimiko and Heather I'm happy to hear that they plan to play in the future together

More titles this season than Hlavackova/Hradecka and Kirilenko/Petrova

Moscow will hopefully be exciting rather than one match and the race is done.

I could be wrong, but I thought that Abi/Raquel's worst result from their top 11 tournaments this year was 130 points. So when you knock that off and add 280 points from Osaka, wouldn't they only close the gap by 150?

Plus, the Moscow draw came out. Abi/Rocky and Nadia/Maria are in the same half, so we could have a blockbuster semi between them! Nadia/Maria got a MUCH kinder quarter of the draw though...
