Re: Iijima? <Is she as bad as they claim?>
The first time I saw her in a Japanese challenger against Nakamura and was not impressed, from a few years ago. The I saw her against a good young Chinese player last year and I actually impressed.
She's unlikely to get much into the top 100 unless she works really hard but she's very consistent...just no weapons.
Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
