hello, Im a fan of WTA who lives in tokyo.
n I went to toray qualify n saw participating palyers this weekend, so now Im gonna talk about what i saw there.

friday night, i went to shinjuku n took a pic with tina krizan.
next morning somehow me n my friend successfully sneaked into the shuttle bus to the stadium seemingly only for players n staff n the short bus ride with players was really great!
after leaving the stadium we went to shinjuku again n hung around there.
n we happened to see maria's NEC TV advertisement in some shop there.
The TV ad is really great. we liked it! in it maria looks so cute n i think her acting ability can be seen there. i heard that they would air it jan 31 to mid feb in japan to promote a new NEC laptop.
n this morning when i had breakfast i saw Lindsey, Lisa, Renee around the tournamnet desk. seemed they had just arrived there n i also saw renee giving japanese traditional bow style greetings to the stuff there. after that we headed toward shinjuku station n on our way i saw elena dokic n seemed she was on her way back. i heard that she made a contract with yonex n i already saw her wearing yonex stuff n her pic on a yonex racquet ad with other players such as another elena d n asagoe in the stadium.

that's all for what i've seen so far!

nway i just hope all of the players are enjoying the tounament here in tokyo.
wish all the best to them!

hello, Im a fan of WTA who lives in tokyo.

n I went to toray qualify n someplace where we could see participating palyers this weekend, so now Im gonna talk about what i saw there.

on friday night i went to someplace (so-called official hotel hehe) in shinjuku n saw a lot of players there. They came down for dinner n i took a pic with tina krizan.
next morning somehow me n my friend successfully sneaked into the shuttle bus to the stadium seemingly only for players n staff n the short bus ride with players was really great!
after leaving the stadium we went to shinjuku again n hung around there.

that's all for what i've seen so far!

nway i just hope all of the players are enjoying the tounament here in tokyo.

:confused: So is Jelena with Yonex or adidas? Or maybe Yonex racquets and adidas apparels. ;)
Thanks for the report by the way. :D

What? She switched Head to Yonex!!! I don't belive that.

miyumyu (http://www.wtaworld.com/member.php?u=21235) are you sure she played with Yonex raquet?

lol seriously Lindsay, Lisa and Renae at tournament desk - it's as if those three decide to bombard onto a place together at the one time at every tournament <g>

Or as I always say to one of my friends if ever in doubt where Renae and the others are just follow the laughs or the thick loud Aussie accent ;)

hi! to everyone here.
yeah, i will, if i have a chance jiro san.
hi rhythmboy, k, now im talking bout some matches I saw there.
firstlly, tax vs janette: I thouhgt tax would win the match in straight sets. becoz tax played very well n well concentrated in the first set. but after winning the 1st set she took a toilet break n seemed her condition was getting worse since then... n contrary to the situation tax was in, Janette started playing better n she won the last two sets. Dokic was in the stands with Janette's coach to cheer her up n she got so excited when Janeete won some important points.
secondly, Perry vs Okamoto: I think Perry has potential for breaking into the top 100. She served really well in the match n no way for Okamoto to break her seerve...
lastly Rita vs Rika: Rika showed her guts in the second set but didnt play well in the tie-break. Seemed Rita was in good condition n showed various shots which led her opponent to making errors in the both matches she played on sunday.
n yesterday i had the feeling that janette, els, morigami n rita would get through n now
i know my prediction is 50% right. congrats janette n morigami n go els n rita!

ah, i think the contract dokic signed is the same as another elena d did, like yonex outfit, racquet n shoes, im not 100% sure though.

Tell us more about Dokic please! Everything! All the details :devil:

Did you see her practice? What was her attitude like when she was watching Husarova?

Sorry I'm such a pain in the ass but I miss Dokic, it's been a while since she played a tournament :D

hi fyndhornElf, ah, just imagine how dokic reacts when she wins some important point in her match haha, yeah she even stood up n gave a big clap to janette when she won the second set!
ah i didnt see her practice but seems she's all fine not having a cold here in tokyo.
