Jill had problems closing out both sets but overall a nice preformance. Nice job Jill!

Too many UEs from Kimiko. Very disappointing since it wasn't like she was getting overpowered by Jill.

Congrats Jill, keep going

Oh those errors were painful. Will Kimiko play doubles, and if so, with whom? What will her next tournament be? She will still need a WC to get into most any of them, right?

She entered doubles with Rika Fujiwara, but the cutoffs were too high

Next tourney is AO qualies.

Good showing, KD. Get more match fit and you might be challenging these top 100 players.

Well done Jill.

Oh, thank you. So a week plus a few days, to work on her groundstrokes. That might just be enough!

Good competitive match. Kimiko shouldn't be discouraged because she had chances to make it even closer. She fought well and was no pushover on the baseline, especially with that inside-in forehand.

Jill is in great shape too!

Yeah. Kimiko shouldn't get down losing this. Jill is quite a pro and this was always going to be a tough ask for Kimiko. I think she did alright making this a competitive match.

Hopefully Kimiko can qualify for the Australian. She certainly won't face anyone as tough as Craybas in the Australian Open qualies.
