Akiko Morigami Thread
I'm very much interested in the evolution of rising japanese tennis player Akiko Morigami. Probably because she hits with both hands both sides like my all-time favourite Monica Seles,and like myself.

So this is her own thread.I think she deserves it.:D

Akiko is competing in the Tokyo tourney this week.Here is her first round result:

Akiko Morigami (JPN) d. Shinobu Asagoe (JPN) 64 76(5)

Way to go,Akiko!!!! :bounce:

I am also a big fan of akko, I met her at the aussie open and she is a lovely girl!
I got to meet her mother and her manager type guy, it was a wicked experience and they gave me free tickets to the night matches for cheering her on.
Go to and post a message for her and tell them that eoin sent you.

I dont speak Japanese and can't post one!! I'm jealous of you as well Scott! YOU met her and saw her live! I'm very very very JEALOUS!

Aww what great pics!! I saw Akiko live last year at Wimbledon in her win over Tammy. I actually went intending to cheer Tammy on, esp. as she has such a great record there, but came away a BIG Akiko fan! :lol: :p. She is so interesting to watch, and she seems a really fun, sweet person. Seems like she's had a nice start to the year, lets hope she keeps it up! :kiss:

I don't speak japanese either.Is her website only in that language?

Veritas Feb 9th, 2004 12:58 PM

Thanks for the pics! Akiko looks great :)

Veronika - I haven't visited Akiko's site yet, but she's lived in the US for a few years, so I think there's a good chance that English would be available on her webpage.

i couldn't get it then......:(

Scott Storm Feb 10th, 2004 01:42 AM

No, the website is only in japanese. I don't speak it either but I have successfully posted on it 3 times. yet every time I try it takes me atleast ten minutes.

I just posted again and it was pretty easy, I put my name in the first box, my email in the second box, I left the third one blank and then pressed the larger button twice.
I gave this site a mention and I'm sure team akko would appreciate knowing about the growing fanbase akiko is gaining all over the world.

Blair Feb 10th, 2004 03:47 AM's very much appreciated!
