Well it's all over in singles, which is disappointing... but oh well... good luck in doubles!

First post:

Hope they do well in Tokyo :) I just found the entry list. So good luck

Sugiyama- to maybe win her 3rd AIG title :)
Morita- continue her great form in front of the home crowd :)
Morigami- :D
Nakamura- defend her points and more, one of the most neglected Japanese players :)
Japanese Guys - (because they're cute esp. Kei Nishikori and Go Soeda)

Qualifying matches: (Most matches feature a Japanese girl. But how I miss Fuda :sad: and I'm surprised Erika didn't get a WC.)

(4) Abigail Spears (USA) d. (6) Junri Namigata (JPN) 63 64


(2) Sania Mirza (IND) d. (WC) Ayumi Morita (JPN) 60 64
Too bad she couldn't extend her recent form, but Sania was a tough challenge.

Klara Zakopalova (CZE) d. (7) Aiko Nakamura (JPN) 63 64
Disappointing she didn't defend her points.

(Q) Yuan Meng (CHN) d. (4) Ai Sugiyama (JPN) 63 63

Alicia Molik (AUS) d. (6) Akiko Morigami (JPN) 61 62
Surprising :(

(Q) Abigail Spears (USA) d. (Q) Tomoko Yonemura (JPN) 64 61

It's all over in singles in the first round :sad:


Ferguson/Yonemura (AUS/JPN) d. Iijima/Okamoto (JPN/JPN) 06 63 105

To be played:
Morita/Sugiyama vs. (1) Chuang/King
Would be great if they can win. I think they can do it.

Arai/T. Yonemura vs. Nakamura/Tanasugarn
I would be happy if either team won. Maybe Morigami took a break from doubles this week.

Fujiwara/Namigata vs. (2) Yan/Sun
