rika's message from the website
Brrrrr! Mmmmm! The score was 3-6, 2-6. There must have been many reasons for this loss, but there must have been many chances as well. I could've attacked more, but I didn't have enough consistant shots to damage the opponent today. But for some points, I could play my tennis and this tournament gave me a lot of confident. That's for sure. Thank you very for giving me messages from the early morning (in Japan). Those really helped me a lot.
Next week, I am the 15th out from the qualifying list, but I am going to Miami anyway to sign up. If I can't play in Miami, I am going to play in Redding, Calif. ($25,000 touney).
Well, this trip just began. I'll do my best! Ok now, I am going shopping now!!
