Re: Tokyo: Shahar Peer def. Kimiko Date Krumm 6-3, 6-1
The tools are visibly there, but she hasn't quite gotten them all connecting yet.
Top 100 is definitely a goal she should have. Peer did play fairly well, however. She's hopeless at net, resorted to plenty of moonballs (which did offset some of Date's pace), but her backhand was clicking, and she was beating Date in most of the forehand rallies (pretty sad, really).
I wouldn't be surprised if Peer lost next round. But this is a valuable win for her anyway. Prove me wrong, Shahar.
