Congrats to Saori

She's been really consistent this year, which has brought her into the Top 70 for the first time this week. Here's hoping for continued success.

Good thing she has nothing to defend (except Bali QF points) until next year.

Well done Saori!
:

Her next match is against Widjaja or Garbin. Whoever it is, she is playing well enough to beat them, good luck Saori!
