Well after my last post, I drove to the Qualifying event at Rohampton, SW london. I was a bit late and Junri's match was first on court #3 against Yakimova the 16th seed.
Junri played well but lost a close first set.
She looked tired but managed to edge the second and I thought she'd take the third but she made some silly errors
She really was tired and lost the final set easily
After the match she was interviewed by Japanes TV and despite being down she smiled all the way through the interview.
I said to her how unlucky she was & she said thanks with a smile.
Later on she and Ayumi Morita played in the doubles qualifying.They're six seeds and were playing a Russian pair, they started badly and lost the first set making errors but edged the second and raced away in the third!
They were the last match on court today, so there were'nt many people left.As I was chatting to a couple of friends, Junri walked past and smiled at me
I think they have to play the second seeds tomorrow but if they win they're into the Wimbledon main draw!
Go Junri and Ayumi!!
