Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

Sema def. Dabija 6-2, 6-7(6), 6-1

A win is a win .
She'll have her chances against Vigdany or Camerin but you never know with Erika and the clay. Some suprising results and some bade losses.
Would be very nice to see her in a QF of a 100 K on clay.
Keep going.

TT Comeback, Title Count:
Singles: Indian Harbour Beach '16
Doubles: Launceston '16 (w/Tim.), Indian Harbour Beach '16 (w./Ivanovic_fan), Saint Gaudens '16 (w/Tim.), Ikley '16 (w/Tim.)
Rank: 106 // 73

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

Interview with Erika at BCR Open:

Quote:
Erika Sema – Fifth week in Europe



A presence that stood out on the Bucharest clay, the 22 year-old Japanese from Tokio achieved two victories, one in the singles and one in the doubles main draw, with Raluca Olaru. Thursday she flies back to the “Land of the Rising Sun”, with the thought of coming back to Romania next year.


How come you chose to come here at thousands of kilometers distance?

Well, it’s not exactly like that. It’s now five weeks since I have been in Europe: Wimbledon, four weeks in France, and after that I came here. So, not from very far away. Now, I’m going home.

But, still, why precisely BCR Open Romania?

Because it’s a $100.000 competition, so it’s major tournament. I haven’t been here before so I really wanted to come. An it was pretty interesting.

How do you find Bucharest?

I like it. People are so nice, but I didn’t go out, I only stayed in the hotel. And I liked the hotel. But it’s very hot, just like in Japan. But I came From france, where it was chilly, so it was difficult for me to adjust.

You were a few points away from entering the doubles semifinals, with Raluca Olaru...

We fought beautifully. But I think that we should have been more aggressive, to advance to the net more and, also, to play cross more.

How did you choose a Romanian as a partner and why Raluca?

Raluca…She is a nice girls and she plays well. I hope to play with her again. She came to me to ask me to enter the doubles draw together: we knew each other since we were juniors, we were about 17 and we kept in touch since then

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

Thanks for the interview

Unfortunately Erika lost in R2 to Camerin, but a nice week for her. I hope she has a well earned rest back home now before the US Open.

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

Erika's not getting much of a rest, playing next week at 100k in China. She'll be a top seed in the weaker field so there is a chance at some BIG points if she is playing well, which it sounds like she was in Bucharest. Yurika will be their also

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

Unfortunately she lost her 1st round in Bejing and misses a chance for some nice, big and easy points !
But her opponent Pavlovic already advanced to the QF's.
Better luck next time Erika

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

Erika I'm not sure if she is playing again until US Open qualies (she might have a chance at a seed!!), hopefully she comes ready and with 100% to fight

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

Erika is playing Sharon Fichman. Interesting matchup, both very consistent. I think Erika is the better grinder though, and she usually gets pumped up against opponents who grunt/scream/etc. The serve will probably be important.

Good luck Erika!!!

Good luck Erika.

Hopefully she can have a run similar to her sister in 2009.

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

I never posted my pictures from Erika's match against Vrljic at Wimbledon Quallies. Here they are, sorry about how late they are!

Re: Erika Sema Cheering Thread

After losing in QF of Tsukuba to eventual finalist Chin-Wei Chan, Erika already won her 1st match in Noto ( another japanese 25 K ) ! But toughest opponent and winner of Tsukuba Nakamura will be her 2nd round opponent .
I hope she can fight it out... I have a bad feeling though

Here's the result of R1 :

(1)Erika Sema (JPN) d. Yue-Yue Hu (CHN) 61 64

TT Comeback, Title Count:
Singles: Indian Harbour Beach '16
