Re: which players are the darkhorses at the australian open?
Aiko Nakamura, as a qualifier two years ago she made the second round and put up a spirited challenge against Molik. Last year she beat Cornet in 3 sets, destroyed seeded Dulko 61 61 before bowing out to Patty Schnyder.
Akiko Morigami also, her coach mentioned recently she has been in great form.
I miss Ai, Erika, Rebecca and Shinobu
