I only hope that Shinobu can better or defend her points from last year's grass season. She has so much potential to reach the top 20, but it's her crappy schedule and lack of pro-match play that's been bringing her down
Sorry to hear about your anklei_love_chanda said:YAY, Shin beat Nadia, 6-4 2-6 6-4!!! I really wanted to go see this, but I twisted my ankle! Oh well, if I don't catch Shino at DFS I'll go see her at Wimby! Great win, and next up is Golovin, who beat Shin at IW this year. Time for revenge Shinobu!!

An interview with:
THE MODERATOR: Questions in English.
Q. You were down 3-1 in the first set and you were down again in the second set 2-1. What did you keep telling yourself to come back, especially in that first set?
SHINOBU ASAGOE: Especially in the first set, I wasn't serving very well, in the first set especially. So keep telling myself, "Serve better." It really got better towards the second set. But actually I don't know exactly how or what I was telling myself, you know, to get it over.
Q. Do you have a preference who you'll play next, Venus Williams or Lindsay Davenport, and why?
SHINOBU ASAGOE: I don't have any preference. I never won either of them before, so...
Q. What kind of results have you had against both of them in the past?
SHINOBU ASAGOE: I play Venus three times before, and I all lost. Davenport, I played her two years back in Wimbledon, and I lost, too.
Q. What kind of emotions are going through you right now, being this far in a Grand Slam event?
SHINOBU ASAGOE: I was trying my best to just keep going, but still I probably can go further. So I'm not really satisfied right now. I have to go further from here.
Q. Are you just trying to keep your emotions level, even keel, not getting too excited at this point?
SHINOBU ASAGOE: I'm still happy, but trying to tell myself that have to play more.
Q. You came into the US Open with a losing record. Now you're in your first Grand Slam quarterfinal ever. That must make you very happy.
SHINOBU ASAGOE: Just simply I'm happy today with the result. I'm not sort of overreacting with the result that I have now because I'll have another match day after tomorrow. I'm not really, you know, too much excited by the moment, but still I'm happy.
