Disappointed. Still a terrific week for Kimiko and if she can play at this level in Tokyo and Dubai later this month she should at least assure herself of a top 12 seed for the Australian Open qualies. The wins over Tammy and Misaki were very positive and losing to Svitolina isn't a disaster really either.
As for Elina, well it's obvious she has a great future, but I wish she could have held off on that future until next year. Nevertheless she has a nice game and seems a decent kid so I wish her well.
