Slam singles debut too, at RG of all places.

Clay suits Kato's game quite well actually. She hits a very heavy ball. A lot of Japanese girls have done surprisingly well on Clay tbh, especially Doi.

Nara winning a WTA title on clay too, and Ozaki's move to the top 100 began in Euro clay ITFs. But Kato had so little experience on red clay before RG.

Zarina did let out a little squeal of delight after match point. I think this does mean a lot to her

Hope the knee is just a temporary inconvenience.

Yeah and then she was like "just give me the trophy already and let me go home"
