Now plays Koehler, who double bagelled her opponent today. :scared:

Misa :bounce: Koehler is a very good player, but weak mentally. If Misa keeps fighting to the end she could have a chance :)

Misa beat Koehler in 2 sets :yeah: So solid :) Now play Iryna Bremond :scared:

Vigo Quarter Final
Misa EGUCHI (JPN) defeated Maria Joao KOEHLER (POR) (6) 7-6(5) 6-4
Wow :eek: Next up is Iryna Bremond. Very likely the road will come to an end, but a great experience it will be for Misa to play a player of that calibre. I think she's the highest player Misa might have ever played?
A pretty encouraging scoreline I think. Best of luck wherever Misa plays next, I can't believe how much she has improved!

Fantastic week for Misa :) She has played a lot of tennis lately, so I hope she has time off and can be 100% in form for the busy fall Asian season. I have no idea what a good year end ranking goal could be for Misa? 250? Its crazy how realistic that seems considering where she started the year :lol:

I agree :D Top 250 seems quite feasible at the moment. This Autumn will be interesting for Misa, hopefully she can combine some of the WTA qualifying events in Asia as well as the Asian Challengers which will help boost her ranking even more.
It's a pity Akiko's Spanish tour didn't go as well. But she still has plenty of time and just needs to work on her consistency.

Any comment about their style of game?

Both Akiko and Misa are having great weeks!
Akiko has reached the semis of 25k Alice Springs, while Misa is into the semis of 25K Noto. Misa has a great chance to win the tournament now I think! Good luck to both :bounce:
