Ai hasn't won a match so far this season. :(



Played 5 tournaments. Lost in the first round of each.

Gold Coast - lost to Safarova [eventual Champion]
Sydney - lost to Schiavone [eventual Runner-Up]
Australian Open - lost to Conchita Martinez-Granados
Pan Pacific Open Tokyo - lost to Ivanovic
Dubai - lost to Safarova

What is happening with Ai? She's had bad form in singles since she stopped playing doubles with Clijsters. She was once a constant Top10 player.

Hope she can regain some form. She has had her moments, like when she reached the final of San Diego, but has really gone downhill recently.

She lost 6 out of her first 7 last year (and her first 4). She can rebound, like last season where she had a solid summer+fall season. But at 30, it's definitely not getting any easier.

Not only she hasn't won a single match, nor a set, but she only managed to win a maximum of 3 games in a set!!!!!!!

But less we forget that this is how Ai year started last year, but I beleave she won her first singles match of the year at this tournament. But she still managed to turn her year around.

And it is not only Ai who is haveing trouble this year:
Asagoe 1-5
Sugiyama 0-5
Morigami 0-3

Jie is struggling too. Not a good season (until now) for Asian girls.
