Anna....first top 20 win this year, and revenge from last year's 1st round where she was beaten 2-6 1-6.

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...

ouch, that's a bad loss for Ai, the top 15 and always being seeded for tournament is slowly sneaking away

The WTA Tour website has her listed as "Anna Smashnova" again, so it appears as if Claudio Pistolesi has been dismissed from the home as well as the practice court.
