I think that Akiko/Yuka team lost in the first round of the main draw against Tian-Tian / Ting, according to Aceman and the USTA websites .

Saiori lost to Martinez, but Im glad she made the main draw, it shows how much she is improveing all the time.

I think Saiori decided not to play 100% if she knew she would have a LL spot.

Its counterpunching basically. She is very fast on foot and works hard to try and get every ball back. This is why she can beat players like Shrapova, Bovina and Hantuchova as she can get balls back that would normally be winners, and force errors. Also she can play very well at the net. I would say grass is her best surface.
