thid always happens to ai. she gets to number one and splits with her partner. julie halard-decugis retired after they became the dominant team, and then ai fell right back in the rankings, now she is number one again and splits with kim.
she is much better player now though, and lots of people would want to play with her. she think about teaming with a japanese girl for the olympics, because they could get a medal. she played with rika for a while last year and they were very successful.
