She hasn't mentioned anything specific on her blog, but I assume she'll be playing on red clay to prepare for RG.

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

It's worrying that Kimiko withdrew from the Doubles after aggravating her old injury. Fingers crossed she can compete tomorrow.

Thanks! There is some news in GM where I asked the same question (in her win thread vs. Baltacha).

Hopefully it's not as serious as first thought

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

Kimiko's foot is still troublesome but better today. Rain has prevented play so far.

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

That is a great win against Baltacha. She beat a solid player in a clooooooooooose match! Hopefully she's healthy.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

The Gods are smiling on her and giving her more rest.

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

It's been raining again this morning and Kimiko is happy about it. She has been struggling with recovery times as well which is hardly surprising given her age.

She originally wanted to play for Q in Barcelona...but she keeps winning and her foot isn't at the best.
She wants to play WTA qualifying more this summer before French. If she wins tomorrow, she can play in Portugal MD.

Go! Trojans!

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

I get the feeling that she may also play Stuttgart qualies since she's been wanting to play in her husband's homeland.
