I think she suprised me so much the hanging in (even though losing) to J. Cap , then Myskina match :eek: ,and the win over J.H.H. at the last match of the season well heck I would kill for that!
I think Ai did wonderfull at Y.E.C. :bounce:

She did about what I suspected. :)

I think she did ok, but I expected her to make the Semi's, or even the Final. I think she should have won ALL THREE of her matches, plus maybe even another win over Kim in the Semi's;).

I watched the match against Jen.
She missed so many opportunities against Jen.
That would be the next step for her... finishing off the point...at big points... but she entertained fans for sure.
The match against Myskina was a bit disappointing.
The win against Henin was the great bonus for Ai!
Overall, she enjoyed the YEC, and got into the top10. so I guess it was good!

I said "poorly" but it's not really what I mean ;)
I explain, I thought she could have qualified for the SF! She really has the potential to do it! She missed some opportunities, but it's already good to have been able to qualify ;)

Overall, I was disappointed with Ai's YEC performance. I honestly expected her to make it to the Semis - she's had close H2H records agaisnt Jenn and Nastya, so it's possible that she could've beaten them and finished no.2 in her group.
Her loss to Jenn was a disappointment. So many wasted opportunities :rolleyes:
Her loss to Nastya was dreadful :rolleyes:
Her win against Justine was mysterious :tape:

If you think about it, Ai could have won all three of her matches; however she did beat the world number 1 and got into the top 10 for the first time and it was her first cahmpionship so it wasn't bad.
