She made it difficult for herself though, she was leading 6-3 2-0 and gave away the second set and then trailed 3-4* in the third. She now goes on to have a hard match against Ai Sugiyama, but Saori has nearly beaten her before (they met in LA and Saori lost 6-2 3-6 3-6) Anyway, good luck and well done Saori! :hearts:
