QF: Erika TAKAO (JPN) defeated Kumiko IIJIMA (JPN) 64 60

She has a winnable Semi but Morita and Hisamatsu lurk at the bottom half

Out of curiosity, I decided to check Erika's H2H vs Ayumi:

Ayu leads 1-0, winning in Makinohara last year 57 64 63. Erika has improved much since 05, but so has Ayumi. I am scared for the final I hope Hisamatsu can then take Ayumi out because Erika recently defeating Shiho

I dont know how this girl is winning all these matches.... she must be almost identical to Fujiwara in game style because I just dont see how she is going to win matches againt the European girls who have a much heavier weight of shot then the Japanese players she's been beating.
I can imagine that Erika must have increadibly good movement to make up for the lack of weight of shot and reach. Whatever she's doing, its working very well.
Call me a skeptic, but I will wait untill she plays some European girls before I comment on If she's a gonne be a top 100 player or not... Rika Fujiwara for example, had to work very hard and be very 'on key' for the success in singles that she acheived... and even then, she was often out stretched and hit out by European top 100 players.
Erika Sounds like an interesting player none the less!

My dear friend V.Melb It is nice to see your opinion,it is welcome . Erika's strength is technically she is very good, her volleys are quite poor though. I was present at her practice session with Kirilenko and Ivanovic at Rosmalen and her match vs Kostanic at Rosmalen. She doesn't hit the ball hard, but she plays like Rika Fujiwara. She makes the opponent run around often, doing lots of drop shots and lobs and slice and topsin. I do think she can be in the top 100, and a solid player for the Japanese Fed Cup team next year possibly when Shinobu retires. One weakness though was that she looked a bit nervous playing against Kostanic, but the nerves will go with experience I think. I do wish though, that she would compete abroad more though, because tournaments in America and Europe are a lot different from the Japanese Challengers I could imagine. Erika could be ranked in the top 100 or 110 by the end of the year personally, her progress has been good and she hasn't got that much attention. She has two coaches, a male coach and a former WTA pro, Kyoko Nagatsuka who played Fed Cup for Japan and had a career high of 28 in Singles and 31 in Doubles. I would be very happy for Erika to have a career like that and I am sure she would too. Erika has also already defeated a top 100 player - Aiko Nakamura at Gifu earlier in the year. I will also try and find a video of Erika to post
