What injuries? But I have no doubt that Ai will find her form again. It's just a little rough patch. Remeber, she won a tourney already this year!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Ouch...Fed Cup probably did not feel good. I feel bad for Ai, that would have been a huge victory for her confidence-wise. Oh well, The year is still young!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

She had a great first tournament, she had a fantastic match against Magdalena Maleeva at GoldCoast. I think this 1-6, 1-6 damage by the same opponent cracked her confidence...

FLAVIA PENNETTA

US OPEN CHAMPION 2015

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

But she was sick for that match as well. Hopefully she'll find her form in the next week or two!!! Not so worried!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Ai beat Akiko Morigami 6-2, 3-6, 6-1!! Great win today Ai against a very tough opponent. Hopefully winning a three set match will give her some much needed confidence...she now takes on Claudine Schaul who Ai beat 6-4, 6-4 in Miami last year. She has a really good draw!!! Go Ai! Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Ai won her 2nd round match against Pratt but then lost 3-6, 6-0, 6-7(3) to Schiavone. This is a very dissapointing result. She was up 6-5 in the third for sure but who knows by how much she was leading earlier in that set...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

She had a really good/solid win against Pratt, I don't know what happened. She's had so many matches like this,but they have all gone in favor of her oponent. I hope that she finds out what she's doing wrong, because she had chances to win. Good Luck in San Diego Sugi!

She's definately out of her slump from earlier this year though. This is a bad match up for Ai even though I know she can and should have today beaten Schiavone. She's still playing well and I know she'll have success this summer!!! GO Ai!!!!!!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

I'm really disappointed in Ai - losing to a player like Schiavone is definately not a good sign for our Japanese champ.

Oh well, Ai usually grabs more points (and money) during the N.A. hardcourt season, so I think (rd: hope) she might do better in other tournaments.

Good luck Ai!

I suppose I can translate it if WTAWorld gives me a contract or a commission But I don`t have the book yet.
yea, when she plays, she always wear a jewely that is a cross.
I've heard that she became a christian in 2000 or so??
I've read one of Ai's diary about it once too.

Is that book sold well, do u know, yakusoku??

Go! Trojans!
