Obata needs to get her skates on
Does anyone more cleverer than me know what Saori's post-US Open ranking will be?
Saori hasn't won a match since Wimbledon, a 7-5 third set win over Eva Birnerova. She will plummet after failing to defend any US Open points and with Tashkent and Bali coming off, she needs to start winning again. Will she be destined to do GS Qualies again
Come on Saori!
