Re: Date Kimiko Return!

Kimiko
To be frank,I didn't expect she can win a singles match in current days.However,she made it.
It will be interesting if Kimiko get a Wimby WC and I hope so.

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

Go Kimiko! I remember way back when she was first entering the top 40. As a kid, I completely wore out a video recording of her playing Monica Seles at the Aus Open. The score was something like 6-2,7-5 (It was way back in 1992 or something).
Hopefully after Kimiko beats Nakamura tomorrow, some of the doubters will be silenced. I reckon it's only a matter of time before she's back in the top 100 where she belongs, I wouldn't be surprised if she ends up top 30 either.
37's not that far past regular retirement age, look at what Navratilova achieved at 50.

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

Re: Date Kimiko Return!

Kimiko
Perhaps she can play doubles with Ai at one point (perhaps Olympics ? That's probably impossible though)

Amazing really

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Thanks; I didn't have that blog link; that will be great.

No I don't speak Japanese but that is what I requested in my post; it is for a Japanese person I play with some times.
