View Full Version : Chihiro Takayama - Japanese Clay Court Capoeirista!

Jul 22nd, 2006, 01:41 AM
She opens against Urszula Radwanska so I think she won't have many chances,but I want to ask if anyone has ever seen her play and if she's talented? :)

Jul 22nd, 2006, 05:53 AM
Why she get WC ???

Jul 22nd, 2006, 08:39 PM
Radwanska won 6-4 6-0 It's an ok scoreline

Jul 23rd, 2006, 02:57 AM
Why did she get a WC?

Jul 23rd, 2006, 04:33 AM

Jun 24th, 2011, 05:49 PM
Great wins :eek:

I know hardly anything about her, but hopefully she can keep going. :worship:

Jun 24th, 2011, 05:51 PM
I first heard about her when she lost in R1 of an American 10k to Hilary Toole :haha:

Good to see her having some great results and on clay nonetheless!

What's Chihiro been eating? :eek:

Jun 25th, 2011, 05:11 AM
Amazing Chihiro :lol:

Jun 26th, 2011, 02:14 PM
Chihiro lost to Mijacika in 3 sets in the semis. :sad:

Still an awesome tournament for her. :hug:

Jun 26th, 2011, 03:39 PM
Mijacika went on to win it. :hug:
50k+H Torun
Q1:Takayama d. Kosinska[4] 6-3 6-3 :eek: :D

Jun 26th, 2011, 03:52 PM
So random. :haha:

Maybe we should rename this thread into her cheering thread. I can't believe its been 5 years since her random Budapest wildcard.

By the way, does anyone have any pictures of her? I can't find anything. :sad:

Jun 26th, 2011, 08:20 PM
I found these tagged as her, i havent seen her before so im just assuming its her..

Jun 26th, 2011, 09:04 PM
Thank you :D

Chihiro just won her second match in the Torun quallies, 6-0 in the first set before her opponent retired. Chihiro must be really tired from all the tennis she's played in the last week, hopefully she can win one more to make the main draw!

Jun 26th, 2011, 10:32 PM

Jun 27th, 2011, 02:31 AM
Hopefully her opponent is fine. :) But that retirement gave her some kind of break.
Good Luck against Kolat tomorrow!

btw I changed the title, if anyone comes up with a better idea, just tell me!

Jun 27th, 2011, 05:40 PM
Torun Q3:Takayama d. Kolat 6-1 6-0 :D
She is playing Dentoni in MD. First match against a Top150 player in her career. :) She should just enjoy it and give her best. These last 2 weeks have been great for her!

Jun 29th, 2011, 05:55 PM
Torun R1:Takayama[Q] d. Dentoni[5] 6-2 4-6 6-2 :speakles: :yeah: Great win for Chihiro. :)
She plays Polish player Paula Kania next. If it's on C1, it will be streamed. :p

Jun 29th, 2011, 09:10 PM
Ok I was not so impressed yet but the win over Dentoni :eek: :worship:
Hope she can keep her form for the netx round , where is it streamed?

Jun 30th, 2011, 01:44 AM
Sadly she was put on C2, where the tournament has no stream. :( Good Luck against Kania tomorrow. :)

Jul 10th, 2011, 07:20 PM
Chihiro is playing the 25k Quallies in Zwevegem, Belgium. Hopefully we'll have another great performance.

Jul 12th, 2011, 08:10 PM
Zwevegem R1
(Q) Chihiro Takayama (JPN) vs (WC) Desiree Bastianon (BEL)

Nice chance for Chiyo

Jul 13th, 2011, 06:20 PM
(Q) Chihiro Takayama (JPN) d. (WC) Desiree Bastianon (BEL) 7-6 2-6 7-6

Nice fight. Wienerova or Lechemia up next.

Jul 13th, 2011, 06:44 PM
She doesn't look as convincing as a week ago, but at least she is still winning! :D

Jul 13th, 2011, 11:45 PM
True, but lots of her wins over the past few weeks were all in three sets. :shrug:

Although the scoreline doesn't seem that convincing against Bastianon, I agree.

Jul 14th, 2011, 03:54 PM
Lenka Wienerova (SVK) d. (Q) Chihiro Takayama (JPN) 6-3 6-0 :sad:

Jul 14th, 2011, 03:57 PM
I think you can see her playing in this video?

Jul 15th, 2011, 11:05 PM
I would highly assume its Chihiro in the video, but can't say for 100% though :lol:

Chihiro is playing qualifying at 100k Petange, hopefully she can win a few matches and maybe even qualify.

(1)Conny Perrin (SUI) v BYE
Nastassja Burnett (ITA) v Victoria Muntean (FRA)
Carina Litfin (GER) v Chihiro Takayama (JPN)
(8)Marion Gaud (FRA) v Lucie Kriegsmannova (CZE)

After some atrocious results lately she lands a big win on HC out of nowhere. :D
