Ai in 2005!

I hope this coming year will be better for Ai, she did really well to stay inside the top 20 in the world for the second year in a row!

Unlike last year Ai doesn't have as many big points to defend so she'll be able to make up a lot of ground from Sydney to Eastbourne. GOOD LUCK AI!!!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Ai is ready to start practicing soon.

She said her schedule (which begins in Gold Coast) hasn't changed.

Go! Trojans!

she just mentioned about the gold coast as her opening tournament of 2005.
I am sure she'll play Sydney, AO, and Toray after that.

I am so excited whom she'll play doubles with!!

Go! Trojans!

I don't understand why Ai would want to play in Filderstadt and not Tokyo instead. She's never done well in Germany before, bar that QF appearence at the 1998 German Ladies Open.

She needed some points because of all of the points that she had to defend. So she played the bigger tourney this year.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Ai's draw in Sydney is a nightmear...with Golovin in the first round and possiblt Stosur in the second...then she would have to play Davenport (who also has a tricky second round)

GO AI!!!

She's also playing doubles with Dementieva here!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
