alongside ayumi morita. erika takao.ryoko fuda and chiaki okadaue,yurika sema is an up and coming young japanese player! she is a great prospect for the future in japanese tennis! with saori's retirement and shino chan's retirement this month,yurika deserves her own cheering thread!she has reached 2 itf sf this year both in sth korea!and an impressive qf finish in lexington last week after qualifying! go yurika!
About time we had a Yuri thread Yurika has a website - www.sema-sisters.com She also has a sister called Erika who is starting to play pro and was ranked top 40 in Juniors There are lots of very nice off court pictures on that site too, like them at Roland Garros and London
nice to be back sugi!aka adam.i had the best time in japan! met alot of friends i hadnt seen in along time, but bit sad to say goodbye ,maybe ill go to work in japan again next year! i missed yurika's 2ndrd match because of work, suprising loss to stoop,but she won the tournie! there is a good chance yurika will make the cut off for the oz open qualies, i really hope she can make it! go yurika!
yurika is still on the alt list for the ao,by my calculations she is 14 spots out of making it! i doubt that many players will withdraw but anything could happen! great if you could sneak in yurika! gs debut!
