How good is Fujiwara?

What should we expect from Venus' first round opponent? I've never seen her play I don't think, just see her name in draws occasionally... Is she the type of player who is at Venus' mercy from the start or does she have the game to make it interesting? I'm hoping that Venus' match doesn't start until about 3:00 so I can get home from school in time to watch

Does school in the US start this early? I have a whole two weeks before school to sit at home and watch the Open.

Not worried, just never seen her play & was curious what to expect. I have never heard anything about her really...Didn't know if she was a power baseliner, a pusher, or if she was a moonballer

Yes, I've been in school for about 2-3 weeks (high school) & then doing some college classes for 2 weeks, but I don't know if everywhere in the US has been going for so long, just here in Georgia

Are you doing both high school and college?

She's a very good player. But she doesn't have the weapons to beat a Venus. Hits fairly flat, goes for the lines, and pretty consistent. Though, if someone can outhit her, she's very weak on her back foot. Against Vesnina (Final round of Toronto qualifying) she took advantage of her opponents errors, and when she was down, she fought even harder to level the match. If Venus thinks her match is on Louis Armstrong, Rika has a chance. But otherwise, 6-2 6-3. She should give us some great points though.
