A BIG BIG BIG Congrats to Shinobu Asagoe

Shes made it through to her first ever Quater Final in a slam...and I cant believe it!! Im so happy for her. Shes a fighter in every sense of the word...three years ago her career was in a mess, and even last year she had bombed out of the top 100...but in true fighting style she made her way back up by making her first ever career final in Birmingham, and making the fourth round of Wimbledon, and third round of the US Open. Again this year after a series of first round loses I thought she would go back out of the top 100, cos her draw at the Open was awful....but shes made it through...this is the highlight of her career.

Shes one of the players out there who just enjoys every momment and really has fun no matter...

WELL DONE SHINO

I am ecstatic!!! Shinobu has proven how she can endure a lot of pressure to win matches. She really impresses me with her determination!

And I am really, really happy with the way she has performed at the U.S. Open this year. She's beaten three seeds to get this far!

Well done Shinobu!

Yeah a big congratulations to her too. She wavered a bit in that third set, but she stayed tough and it was really nice to see her pull out the win. She's made quite a name for herself over the past couple years.

Yes yes. Congratulations. I like Asagoe. She is like this giant rabbit running around with a big smile on her face. She has the best attitude on court.

Big up to Asagoe - she has beaten three seeded players (Smashnova, Suarez and Dannilliodu) as well as "Jill Craybas" - and returns to the Top50.

Who knows if she can beat Lindsay or Venus?

I missed this match. Didn't want to stay up in the middle of the
night just to wait for dopey Heman play 5 sets!

I'm so happy for Shinobu. Win or lose in the QF's, it's a great
moment for her.
