Thanks for the news, Rising Sun.
It is such a shame, she certainly had the potential to make the top 100 and was a fiercely tenacious competitor. I was a big fan many years ago and I wish Erika all the best in her future. After being the surprise winner of the Japanese championships last year, I hoped she'd be able to carry on that level of play throughout 2013 but alas. Thanks for the memories, Erika!
