Once again, excellent result. That leaves Kimiko 21-3 for the season. And two of the losses were to top 100 ranked players Tammy Tanasugarn and Aiko Nakamura. Kimiko even came close to beating Tammy.

I have no idea what Kimiko's plans are now but I somehow have a feeling she will continue to get her ranking up by playing these Japanese ITFs when they occur and she will I would think also almost certainly also get a WC for the main draw of both Tokyo events later in the year, should she want them, which I hope she will.

With that in mind I would think we will be looking at a ranking in the top 200 by the end of the year, with an outside chance Kimiko could be in the top 150.

Next year then will become very interesting. Kimiko will by then have a ranking that will get her into the qualifying of Grand Slams, no WC needed. It will also get her into the qualifying draw of many, if not most tour events.

So basically, next year we will find out just how far Kimiko wishes to take this comeback. Does she intend to play the slams? Will she be prepared to play some other tour events outside of Japan? Will she be looking for WCs or is she basically going to try to get into events on her ranking? And then of course there is the speculation of how well she can do.

Personally I think Kimiko can certainly get back into the top 100 if that is what she wishes to do. Heck, if she were prepared to play a complete calendar year, something I suspect she probably isn't, I think she could get pretty close to, and perhaps even reach the top 50 before the end of the decade. It is certainly going to be very interesting to see how things unfold over the next year.

Re: $25.000 Miyazaki (JPN) F : Kimiko Date-Krumm (JPN) d. Kyung-Yee Chae (KOR) 6-3 6-

I think Date´s comeback is well built.

All the people here who wish her to extend her comeback to the WTA level forget that Date retired due to the increased number of tournaments required to get a solid top10 ranking and she believed she was unwilling to travel a lot and keep her ranking when others play like 28 events and overtake her.

I think she is to play limit her play 2008 to Asian ITF´s (if not only Japanese) and accept a wild card into the 2nd of the 2 Tokyo events. I think the first one would be rather big to start with.

2009 will be interesting.

I believe that Kimiko would be a huge attraction for the Australian Open and would indeed get wild card entry into Sydney and Melbourne. Apart from this, I believe that Kimiko is too clever to risk Japanese headlines of failing in a comeback in big events. That in mind I don´t see her travel to the US for the big events, nor do I see her playing the clay season. She never did that. As her husband is German, I believe that she could change her routine from the past though then and play the 2 European Grand Slams too. She was fantastic against Graf on grass that year. I see her playing up to 12 events next year. But you have to have in mind that she already played like 6 or what this year.

I'd be very surprised if Kimiko plays outside Japan this year. 2009 should be interesting.
