Wimby Final Q: Nara def Dubois 7-6 6-4

Congrats Nara, 2 consecutive Grand Slam main draw
Please draw someone decent, I am sure she will have a great shot against players outside top 50 Or maybe even higher. This girl certainly has a great future for Japanese tennis.

Re: Wimby Final Q: Nara def Dubois 7-6 6-4

Don't know who she is I've heard her name a couple of times but nothing more

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Enjoyed watching Kurumi's Q2 and Q3 matches. She's a feisty player who moves really well, and her game is quite well suited to grass I think. Her backhand particularly is hit hard and flat. Just a pity Doi didn't qualify as well.

Here's a clip of the match point, Kurumi was really happy! Sorry for the size (27Mb) but it's in HD.

Steph Good try though, picked up a few wins at least Maybe with some luck she can pick up a LL spot in the main draw

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Well done Kurumi. It's really promising to see her winning these GS matches on a consistent basis. Hope it says a lot about her future in the top 50.

Dubois had triple set point on Nara's serve at 5-4 in the first.

Good stuff Kurumi.

I saw her playing Kanepi a couple of weeks ago and I was very impressed by her footwork. It usually takes players a long time before they figure out how to move like that.-
