Re: Kurumi Nara - Japan's New Star

So happy for Kurumi. She's making sport headlines in Japan.
No doubt her next match will be great opportunity for her to get some experience against top-calibre. I think it will be streamed online.



From Birmingham.

It's quite interesting you mention that. When she beat Paszek at Roehampton, there was no media interest there whatsoever. However, during Misaki Doi's match against Dentoni, there were so many members of the Japanese media and she had to do lots of interviews as soon as she left the court.

Maybe Kurumi isn't/wasn't seen as bigger a prospect as Doi.

Anyway, Kurumi's ranking moves up to around 115. I think her goal should be to try and attain direct acceptance to the US Open. Very close to breaking the top 100 now too.

Gambatte Kurumi!

Re: Kurumi Nara - Japan's New Star

Tetiana Luzhanska next, another winnable round for her. I'd like to see Kurumi win this tournament, I think she has a chance.
