with a ranking hovering around #132 erika is playing given the smaller 25k's and 50'ks in japan ana china over the next couple of months,can she join compatriots sugiyama, nakamura and morigami in the top 100? go erika! with the retirements of both asagoe and obata womens tennis in japan is looking very healthy indeed! junri namigata has got to be another chance for the top 100! :)

She will come close but not get there until 2007!

No but in 2007 IMO :)

I dont think she should be in Top100, she isnt that good, but there have been worse players in Top100...

she keeps on playing those weak japanese challengers, certainly wont help her development.

I think she can be a top 100 player through smart scheduling as she's a hard worker and very determined out there. Being 5 feet tall, chubby, and weaponless besides her foot speed doesn't exactly spell world domination though.

I think so ;)

If she reaches top-100 based on her performances in Japanese 25K that will be :o and another slap for WTA Tour.
