Wimbledon QR3: Fujiwara def Iijima 6-4, 6-2

Rika's first Wimbledon MD since 2005! Great comeback after the surgery and I hope she can win a round for the first time in a GS MD!!! She's been one point away before. Go Rika.

It's amazing for someone only 5'1 ft tall.

Nice result for Kumiko as well!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Great result for Rika. Hopefully she gets a good draw.

I was hoping Kumi could go one further but she can take only the positives from her matches this week.

I agree completely, a great week for Kumiko and although I was hoping for her to win, I am glad she lost to Rika, another player I like. Good luck Rika

Can anyone explain Rika's game style? I became a fan when she played Vee at the open, but i have kind of forgotten her game

Re: Wimbledon QR3: Fujiwara def Iijima 6-4, 6-2

she's a grinder, has quite a good serve for her height and volleys exceptionally well. she's got a very good backhand and solid forehand...she's just incredibly short and lacks weapons...but she does just about everything she can on the court, and quite well. also, ofcourse being a japanese player, she's very quick.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Congrats Rika. It's been a long road back since her surgery.

Great week for Kumiko. She definitely should be proud of herself.
