with a ranking hovering around #132 erika is playing given the smaller 25k's and 50'ks in japan ana china over the next couple of months,can she join compatriots sugiyama, nakamura and morigami in the top 100? go erika! with the retirements of both asagoe and obata womens tennis in japan is looking very healthy indeed! junri namigata has got to be another chance for the top 100!
I think she can be a top 100 player through smart scheduling as she's a hard worker and very determined out there. Being 5 feet tall, chubby, and weaponless besides her foot speed doesn't exactly spell world domination though.
