Kimiko's 1st tourney in the US since YEC '96. :hearts:

According to her blog, she won 6-2 6-1, though. :confused:

She beat Aiko in the SF of the All-Japan Champs last November in straight sets.

Wow, I am both pleased that Kimiko has moved on, and a little sad for Aiko who had to lose to her.

Go Kimiko!
