Ai is down 4-6 0-4 :eek:

if she comes back AMAZING!

But if she looses, her ranking should fall cuz wasn't she in the quarters last year?

once Kimiko got into top 10, she had hard time against other Japanese players too!!

I saw Saori played Justine at US Open in 4th round last year. This girls is younger and has a talent, she could go top 30 or 20 very soon.

As for Ai, I think she is still the better player now, its just that its not her day.

SerenaSlam

looks like that post didn't go to good :) :)

Ai breaks, and i will be totally amazed if she can come back from this big oh deficit!

but really its all the errors.
Obata to her credit has hit more winners out there, but she has cut back also on the errors. Ai is almost at twice as many errors to Obata!

SerenaSlam
Jan 22nd, 2004, 01:58 AM
down 2-4, looks like she still really wants to win, she is tryin to come back. she was down 0-30 in that game and she held on. lets see if she can show why she is in the top 10!

I duno who to cheer for I like both of them!!!!

SerenaSlam
Jan 22nd, 2004, 02:02 AM
Saori may be choking, her errors jumped up a big, i tink about 6 more now. 3-4 Ai serving to level this match! pressure time for both players. if Ai wins this game, i predict this match is offcially over, if not, than it is still a toss up!

Saori 4-3 Ai now.

Saori shows some nerves?? 92km/h serve??

I hope whoever beats the next opponent would win.

Ai is fighting back!!!

looks like both of them wants to break! I thought Ai is fighting back.

SerenaSlam
Jan 22nd, 2004, 02:06 AM
now i knew that was a break and it musta been a double by Ai b/c that last serve was 84/km/h, now how slow is that, someone tell me. 84mph is slow for a second serve, how slow is this? i really need to know!

Double break point Ai.

SerenaSlam
Jan 22nd, 2004, 02:08 AM
breaks left and right here. Ai seems to be really struggling on her serve, she has to be thankful that this girl doesn't even have that good of a serve at all!

4-5 Ai serving to stay in the match!

BUMP

This was Saori's best ever win in her career and it was when Ai at the time was a Top 10 player :)

I saw her next match against Dechy and it took over 2 hours for her to lose 7-5 6-1 so you get what type of style she had ;)

For Grachka :wavey:
