The Sugiyama Slam

By Brad Falkner

Most tennis fans are familiar with the "Serena Slam". After today and tonight, tennis fans at the State Farm Women?s Tennis Classic might be more acquainted with the "Sugiyama Slam". Ai Sugiyama had to work overtime this Sunday (6 hours and 18 minutes on court) to capture both the singles and doubles (with Kim Clijsters) titles. Super seed slayer Sugiyama was solely responsible for eliminating 3 of the 8 seeded players in the tournament draw. "Beating Lindsay Davenport, Eleni Danilidou, Alexandra Stevenson, and Kim Clijsters this week, this is a dream for me," Sugiyama said after her singles final victory.

The fans showed their support of Sugiyama's sensational stamina by staying around for both of her doubles matches. During the awards ceremony the enthusiastic fans showed their appreciation for Ai's efforts by giving her a lengthy round of applause when her name was announced as one of this years doubles champions. Lindsay Davenport showed her sporting spirit at the ceremony congratulating Sugiyama?s accomplishment by saying "I don't know if anybody has ever had to play four matches in one day and won them all."

When it came time for the winning team to accept their trophies, Kim Clijsters turned the mic over to Ai saying "I think we have to let Super Woman talk." This is what Super Woman Sugiyama had to say. "I've never done this before. Maybe I'll be dead by tomorrow morning." Sugiyama's number one fan, who happens to be her mother and coach said it best, "Amazing! It's her day."
