Chihiro Takayama - Japanese Clay Court Capoeirista!

She opens against Urszula Radwanska so I think she won't have many chances,but I want to ask if anyone has ever seen her play and if she's talented?

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: 15 yo Chihiro Takayama from Japan receives WC into Budapest qualifying!

She is having a great week currently.

25k Lenzerheide:
Q1:Takayama[6] vs bye
Q2:Takayama[6] d. Kocher 6-1 6-0
Q3:Takayama[6] d. Soler 6-0 6-1
R1:Takayama[Q] d. Feuerstein[3] 2-6 6-4 7-6(5)
R2:Takayama[Q] d. Schiechtl 6-4 6-4

DR1:Gorgodze/Takayama d. Lizarazo/Shakovets 3-6 6-3 [13-11]

She seems to be mostly playing in Europe on clay. Quite unusual for a Japanese player!

Rest in Peace Bally!

Great wins

I know hardly anything about her, but hopefully she can keep going.

Re: 15 yo Chihiro Takayama from Japan receives WC into Budapest qualifying!

QF:Takayama[Q] d. Tabak[Q] 1-6 6-2 6-2
I really like Romana, but it's a nice win for Chihiro!
Her next opponent is Ani Mijacika.

DQF:Gorgodze/Takayama d. Birnerova/Jurikova[3] 5-7 6-4 [10-1]
DSF:Hofmanova/Tabak d. Gorgodze/Takayama 7-6(10) 6-1

Rest in Peace Bally!

Chihiro lost to Mijacika in 3 sets in the semis.

Still an awesome tournament for her.

Re: 15 yo Chihiro Takayama from Japan receives WC into Budapest qualifying!

So random.

Maybe we should rename this thread into her cheering thread. I can't believe its been 5 years since her random Budapest wildcard.

By the way, does anyone have any pictures of her? I can't find anything.
