Amway Cup Day Two

Allison Fisher

The group stages are complete at the 2011 Amway Cup and the field has now been cut to just twenty four players.

While the news all across the world was the Tsunami in Japan, at the event it was the Japanese players making news.

Japan's Chihiro Kawahara scored upset wins over Shin Mei Liu and Monica Webb to earn her spot in the final stage of the event. With the loss to Kawahara and back to back 7-1 losses to Liu and Allison Fisher, America's Monica Webb failed to advance from her group.

Another Japanese veteran, Akimi Kajitani, squeaked by to advance from her group with a 2-3 record in group play. Kajitani will face Line Kjorsvik in the first round of the single elimination stage of the event.

2008 Champion Yuan Chun Lin looks to be back in form as she advanced undefeated from her group. Lin will relax with a bye in the first round of single elim play and will then face the winner between Yu Ram Cha and Yun-Mi Lim.

Both Allison and Kelly Fisher are looking strong in this event. Both players were undefeated in their groups and earned first round byes in the single elim stage.

Rubilen Amit's losses in day one of the group stages left her in a position that she couldn't shoot out of as ended up with a 2-3 record, which was only good enough for a 4th place finish in her group. Amit's fellow Filipino star, Iris Ranola, did not fare any better with a 2-3 record in her group.
