I can't believe Satomi beat Tomoe!!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Ayami always beat Kaori, and I was glad to see Kaori turn the tables this time! <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <br />Rika F and Kaori used to be rivals back in the junior days and were about the same level but since then, Rika's left Kaori behind.<br />I'd love to see Kaori beat Rika tomorrow. <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" />

Poor Miho, she had to withdraw just before her 2nd rd. <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" />

Rika Fujiwara d. Kaori Aoyama 7-5 6-1 <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />Haruka Inoue d. Satomi Kinjo 6-0 6-4 <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />Rika Hiraki d. Remi Tezuka 6-1 7-5 <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />Ryoko Takemura d. Keiko Ishida 6-4 6-7(4) 6-3

Not the results I was hoping for <img src="mad.gif" border="0"> <br />Nevermind. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <br />It should be interesting to see how Rika plays against Haruka. She's never beaten her before and always seems to get thrashed by her, hopefully she can finally pull a win over the defending champion. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

great effort by Rika H. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> hope she goes all the way here, she's better than her singles rank would suggest IMO.

Rika F finally beats Haruka!<br />Congrats and good luck against Ryoko, who's pretty lucky that Miho withdrew before the 2nd rd. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Tennisace, this is not a tour event so no points nor wildcards are awarded. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

However prizemoney is given and the winner receives approx $20,000 US. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
