Rika Fujiwara Cheering Thread!!!

She may have already had one but I wanted to start a new one with the news that she WON her first round US Open Qualifying match today 7-5, 6-7(5), 6-3 over the 16 seed Selima Sfar!!! She was down 5-2 in the first set and came back! In the third however she was up 4-1 and had a bit of a scare! It wouldn't be a Rika F match without drama!

She now plays Cory Ann Avants in the next round who had a looong match in her first round against Neha Uberoi!

I have see Avants play and Rika should be able to win this one in straights, but you never know with her.

Good luck Rika!!!!

She is currently 219, but with this win she should move up significantly!!!

Better late then never...

Rika got to the final round in qualifying with two very impressive, hard-fought wins. Unfortunately she wasn't able to close out the first set against Chakvetadze when leading 5-2 and set points. She lost 6-7(6), 2-6. Though it was a disappointing loss, this result will move Rika inside the top 200 for the first time a a year or two.

Good luck in Doubles with Shinobu, Rika!!!

Rika beat Milagros Sequera 6-2, 7-5!!! A very very impressive win over a top 100 player!!! Rika hasn't played this well since a couple of years ago!! I think she's even better now with two 25k wins and solid wins at the USO and here in Beijing!!! Her ranking is going to move up very quickly now!!!

Rika beat Saori Obata 6-4, 6-4 to advance to the 2nd round in Tokyo! She now plays Linteskaya, should be tough but it's very winnable!

Rika lost her first round qualifying match today having to retire at 6-1, 3-0. Hopefully she's okay so she can play again next week. These were the scheduled first three tournaments of her year:

01/03-01/08 ASB Classic Auckland
01/09-01/14 Moorilla International
01/17-01/30 Australian Open

GO RIKA!

Rika is having BY FAR the best result of her career! Some incredible wins so far!

IN THE QUALIFYING
She beat Cohen Aloro 2-6, 6-4, 6-3 and then she took out Czink 6-3, 6-2

IN THE MAIN DRAW
She took out Jidkova 6-3, 6-3 in the first round. Up until then, probably her best career win as Jidkova is a very talented player! Then the big one, she took out the 17 Schiavone 6-3, 7-6(5)!! Incredible! Now she plays Benesova! She should be able to take out Benesova in this kind of form!!

The most remarkable thing about this run is that she usually chokes at big moments. Here she's fought back as usual but then has been able to close them out!! That should be huge for her confidence!! This is why I expect her to take out Benesova but who knows! Then she could play Kuznetsova and we could possibly see her on TV!

GREAT RUN FOR RIKA!!! Her ranking will move up to 219 after this tournament already so let's hope for another win and crack the top 100 for the first time. She's already near a career high!

Rika defeated Benesova just now 7-6(1), 7-6(3)....another impressive win!! It was a crazy match with a lot of momentum switches. Rika was up 4-1 in the first and fell behind 4-5....then she fought back and won the TB very easily. In the second set it started off close, then Benesova took a 5-2 lead and Rika was serving at 2-5 and 0-40! She fought off the set points and climbed back into the set, saving a few more SP's on the way. She went up 6-5 but then lost serve in a close game. She bounced back and took another commanding lead in the TB and never looked back!!!! What a tournament for Rika! Now she'll most likely play Kuznetsova in the next round! What a great experience! And in this form, who knows, maybe she'll come up with something special against Kuznetsova!!!!! GO RIKA!
