Yeah, she's skipping China and Japan...
Well, Germany tournament could give her more points (well, of couse if she wins some!)

I dunno about China... Well, maybe Suzuki (Soccer player) emailed Ai how the Asian cup was in China! :p

I would prefer Ai to play in Asia, esp Japan Open. Good luck with Alicia!

This 'partnership' hasn't even begun yet :o I won't be surprised if Alicia keeps disappointing Ai with her withdrawals and singles-commitments.

We'll see, I hope they're a good pair, but I don't know

After this week seeing Alicia playing someone else and Ai not playing doubles, I don't think they will play doubles together again!

Ai'll look for someone else, I assume.

It seems as if Ai's going to be a bit more careful with choosing a doubles partner. Of course I'm not saying Alicia's a bad doubles player because she isn't. But when it comes to commitments to doubles, Ai needs someone who can be as versatile as she is in tournaments: being able to play singles and doubles with little to no problems.

I dont think it's a good partnership just because they are not "equal" enough.
Alicia is more used to the Australian style of poaching volley instead of the defensive volley Ai is used to.
It's way too easy to find the weakness in their doubles partnership.
But Ai does need to play doubles to keep her doubles ranking high.

Oh? Ai does poaching very often tho. That's what she's good at in doubles. so she needs a strong hitter especially from the foreside.

When I saw her with Kim a few times in California tournaments (Indianwells, LA, and Staple), they were awesome!!!
