Akiko Morigami Thread

I'm very much interested in the evolution of rising japanese tennis player Akiko Morigami. Probably because she hits with both hands both sides like my all-time favourite Monica Seles,and like myself.

So this is her own thread.I think she deserves it.

Akiko is competing in the Tokyo tourney this week.Here is her first round result:

Akiko Morigami (JPN) d. Shinobu Asagoe (JPN) 64 76(5)

Way to go,Akiko!!!!

I am also a big fan of akko, I met her at the aussie open and she is a lovely girl!
I got to meet her mother and her manager type guy, it was a wicked experience and they gave me free tickets to the night matches for cheering her on.
Go to www.akiko-morigami.com and post a message for her and tell them that eoin sent you.

Aww what great pics!! I saw Akiko live last year at Wimbledon in her win over Tammy. I actually went intending to cheer Tammy on, esp. as she has such a great record there, but came away a BIG Akiko fan! . She is so interesting to watch, and she seems a really fun, sweet person. Seems like she's had a nice start to the year, lets hope she keeps it up!

Thanks for the pics! Akiko looks great

Veronika - I haven't visited Akiko's site yet, but she's lived in the US for a few years, so I think there's a good chance that English would be available on her webpage.

I just posted again and it was pretty easy, I put my name in the first box, my email in the second box, I left the third one blank and then pressed the larger button twice.
I gave this site a mention and I'm sure team akko would appreciate knowing about the growing fanbase akiko is gaining all over the world.
