This is a great win for Anna. She seems to pull off surprises when everyone's already counted her out.
As for Ai, I hope she learns from this mistake: don't abandon your own country to play in another, especially when your chances of getting far there are better. I guess she needs a few more lessons in patriotism.

I don't blame Ai for not playing that event in Japan. People seem to forget that this was the tournament where Ai broke a bone in her finger last year and ended up having to withdraw from her quarterfinal match...
