Post $25K Saga Challenger

1st Rd
(All players Japanese unless specified)

1-Eva Krejcova (CZE) d. Nami Urabe 6-2 6-4
Akiko Yonemura d. Junri Namigata 1-6 6-4 6-2
Q-Aiko Nakamura d. Ayano Takeuchi 6-2 6-3
5-Rika Hiraki d. Q-Hiroko Komori 6-0 7-5

3-Akiko Morigami d. Remi Tezuka 6-1 6-2
Tomoko Taira d. Miyako Ataka 7-5 6-1
Maiko Inoue d. Keiko Ishida 3-6 7-6(4) 6-3
8-Ryoko Takemura d. I-Ting Wang (TPE) 6-1 2-6 7-5

Kumiko Iijima d. 7-Sachie Umehara 6-1 4-6 6-3
Tomoe Hotta d. Chisayo Ito 6-2 6-2
Ayami Takase d. Akiko Kinebuchi 6-2 7-6(4)
4-Shiho Hisamatsu d. Q-Reiko Ino 6-2 6-4

6-Yumiko Kitamura d. Seiko Okamoto 6-2 7-5
Tomoko Yonemura d. Satomi Kinjo 1-6 6-4 6-2
Q-Nana Wada d. Keiko Tameishi 6-2 6-2
2-Nana Miyagi d. Kaori Aoyama 7-5 6-2


-----

How dare Eva Krejcova enter this tourney at the last moment. She not only robbed a maindraw placing for someone who entered on time, but also a seeding from Kaori Aoyama who didn't deserve to play the 2nd seed and go out in the first rd. I wouldn't have mind if she entered in the first place.

Good to see Aiko Nakamura finally doing well this year. I'm glad she stopped playing juniors.

They gave out only 2 wildcards instead of 3, so Eva must've gotten the "invisible" one.

Some 2nd rd results:

1-Krejcova d. WC-A Yonemura 6-3 6-3
5-Hiraki d. Q-Nakamura 6-1 7-5
3-Morigami d. Taira 6-1 6-1
Hotta d. Iijima 6-0 6-2
2-Miyagi d. Wada 6-2 6-3


-----

Morigami is playing good tennis again.
Hotta 's form is not surprising. This is her first event of the year, but she's totally dominated the domestic events this year, getting to the finals and winning for almost every single one she entered. She's Top 300 standard at least.

Hi Kaelin!
I'm hoping either Akiko, Rika or Nana wins this event.

Remaining 2nd rd results:

M Inoue d. 8-Takemura 3-6 6-1 6-3
Takase d. 4-Hisamatsu 3-6 6-4 6-1
6-Kitamura d. T Yonemura 4-6 6-4 6-1

Good to see Maiko winning again. Hopefully back to the Top 400 soon. No surprise victory for Ayami. She's been playing very well lately. Glad she turned pro this year after graduating Uni.

Hi Cing.
Just wondering, how did you become a fan of Kaori Aoyama?
For me, I followed some of her junior results and she won the All-Japan Junior Championships in 1999. She was at same level as Rika Fujiwara in juniors, but Rika's just shot up and left Kaori behind.
It's partly due to Kaori's injuries too.
She will be playing in Cairns, Australia next week. Good luck to her.

DOUBLES

1-Hiraki/Miyagi d. Okamoto/Urabe 6-2 7-6
3-Hisamatsu/Inoue d. 2-Takemura/Yoshida 6-4 7-5

Just a little observation, all players participating in the singles and doubles finals are double-handed both sides!
