The long day is finally over...

Saori won the singles! Congrats!! Such a tough day! Singles semi-, final, and doubles the 2R thru the final... total of 5 matches a day were done! I heard it's a record! Really! Unfortunately we lost in the final...but Saori and me could play good doubles games!
Anywho, Saori! What a fighter! I learn it from her and will do my best for the rest of my two weeks here in the States. Everyone who always writes messages here, thank you!! To aim the ranking up, I'll run around and around on clay courts!! Please give me your support!! (babe...)

Anyway, the green clay was literally "green" (more grey?). It feels like the sand is a bit rougher and the court is faster?? Get the idea!?

Apr. 6 Rika's message

my match starting tomorrow.

tomorrow's my 1r opponent is Victoria Azarenka (UKR) who advanced to the final last week in Augusta. She's only 15. She is a very "thin and loooong" player who attacks often. I'll just try to move around and won't miss any chances. Anyway, my match begins at 6pm tomorrow. (to Massa-san;s question, does it rain alot this time of the year in the states?), yes, depends on the place, but it rains a lot these days in redding and augusta.....

Cherry blossoms must be beautiful now!! I am envy you going to the cherry blossom viewing festival!!! but in Augusta, I could see some cherry blossoms... but it was all gone after raining...

It's great to see Rika playing so well. Do you think she is playing too much?

she always got so many injuries all the time...

Apr 27 Rika's comment

I came back here (Lake Hamana, Japan) from Czech via Narita yesterday.

We couldn't use Akko's 2 wins. Well, her play was great...so it was unfortunate that the team lost. Hope we can do better next time. For myself, I wish I could have better judgement on the points that I really needed to win. For the Wimbledon MD, I'll play Lake Hamana and Gifu next week, and try to get more points! For the people who supported us, thank you!!

Rika needs to find the form she has a month ago....she's losing to a lot of nobodies since she has neared entering the top 100....Hope she gets her act together soon!

It was so perfect today. Match by match, Saori and I played better and better, and we really enjoyed till the last.
Next (for me) is FO. I'll leave for Paris on 16th and practice on the redclay.
After that, I'll go to Surbiton (GBR) and Birmingham (GBR) and Wimbledon!


もう今日は完璧でした☆一戦ごとにさおちんとの息がばっちり合ってきて今日は最後までとても楽しくプレーす ることが出来ました!
 次の試合はフレンチです。パリには16日に発ってレッドクレーでじっくり調整します。その後の予定はSU RBITON(イギリス)、BIRMINGHAM(イギリス)でWIMBLEDONです。

Here is Rika's last two games against Saori Obata at the Japan Open last year Round 1. You can see how good Rika really is! She's great to watch, good serve and an awesome backhand!

I'm hoping that Rika will be able to put together a win at Wimbledon. I know she can do it!

She plays Bartoli in the first round! I hope she can pull off the upset! This is a winnable match and these are the kinds of big stage, higher ranked players that Rika has her best reuslts! Hope she can do it!

Well Marion pulled out of Eastbourne, injured...so either she will pull out of Wimbledon, or will not be fully fit for the match (I hope Marion's OK) but it's a chance for Rika!!

OKay, this is a question that maybe only Ex Hopman might know but why does Rika change racquets sooo many times? She's used like 4 or 5 different Yonex models in the last year or so....I thought she was settled on the white yonex onebut now there's a picture of her on her diary page of her website that shows her on Sunday in Budapest with a differnt Yonex racquet. I believe its the one Hantuchova and Jankovic use (as well as Mi-Ra Jeon and Ayumi Morita). Anyone know why she changes so much?
