Q Saori Obata d. Maria Vento-Kabchi 7-6(6) 6-1

Thought I would post Saori's best win for quite a while She's slowly, but surely, getting back to form

She plays a tough opponent in Bartoli in the second round, good luck Saori!

The fruit series is suspended whilst Grachka (obatafan) mourns Saori's retirement.

This is a great win for Saori! Maria is a very good player and for Saori to win in straight sets is a verrrry good sign! Keep it up Saori!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Good win Saori. Too bad for Vento...I hate to see her lose. I see no reason why Saori can't join her fellow Japanese in the top 100, and make it six ladies!
