I think Sugiyama could def dechy easily.She is the symbol of Japan's tennis.

Nice fight in the second, even had 2 set points I think :sad:

Great week though!

Really bad first set for Steph, making about 25 UEs (if the stats are correct) in a lost set of 6-0:o that's awful! But really nice fight in the 2nd :D...You even had 2 sps, if you could have converted them, I think the 3rd set might have been yours :sad:...but anyway, nice way to finish your good run at this AO :D

well done ai, its so pleasing to see her start the season off well. i looked at her career earnings and the 7.5 million is good reward for the hard work shes put in through the years.

well done sugi! Her next match will be tough, dechy´s made the semifinals here.(and was damn close to a grandslamfinal, closer then hantuchova last year) Although dechy lost in the first round the last 3 years, 2 of those were against kuznetsova and hingis...
