Congrats Shinobu - Japan's new #1! :)

With Shinobu's win over Myskina, she takes over Ai as Japan's top player. Congrats to her!

Yes, I love this girl. It's been nice seeing her come through the rankings for the past few years. I started really cheering for Shinobu when both she and Ai upset Amanda Coetzer and Sandrine Testud respectively in the second round to reach the Quarters in Tokoyo, 2001. The look of pure joy on her face after that win was priceless! I fell in love with her at that moment, and have been a fan since!

Well done Shinobu! Continued luck to you and Ai!

I met her in Auckland this year and fell in love with her! She's not that confident with her English, but what she does say, makes alot of sense. I really hopes she comes back to Auckland next year, because she was a crowd fav. Great stuff Shinobu!

Hi.
