@ 180 in the WTA rankings this week.

Any news of who Mr Smith is and where and when Nana got married?

Smith is her father's last name! Miyagi is her mother's. she goes by Miyagi i think cos she represents Japan. I don't know if she also got married to a smith?

It wouldn't make sense. I'm going with this story: Nana coincidentally married a guy whose last name is Smith. :angel:

Is this 180 in the singles rankings or in the doubles rankings?

Coached by father, Murray (Canadian/American), who works for a military base in Okinawa; mother, Miki, loves to take care of her two dogs, a poodle and a shihtzu; has a half sister who is full Japanese and works for a computer company...Born in Seattle, Washington, USA, and moved to Okinawa, Japan, at age 13...Favorite number is 7 because in Japanese, her name translates to that number.
