Eriko Hirose ( 廣瀬栄理子 )
what a run that this unknown Japanese player has made so far. she rose from pretty much a nobody to someone who has an appearance in the Indonesian Open in zero time, and she has proved that it wasn't a fluke by getting to at least quarter-final for the next 3 tournaments.
her run in the AE continues where she will be playing Zhang Ning in the semi-finals.

More facts about Eriko Hirose...
Apparently, she plays for Sanyo in Japan, along with Seiko Yamada.
In the Japan League 2004 in Dec 2004, she beat Kanako Yonekura 11:8, 11:8. In the All Japan Badminton Championships in Nov 2004, she beat Kaori Mori (also playing for Sanyo) 11:9, 11:7 in the semifinal and Kanako Yonekura (playing for Yonex) 11:1, 11:5 in the final.
She seemed to have improved dramatically sometime after Sep 2004, because in the All Japan Member of Society Championships in Sep 2004, she reached the quarterfinals, losing to a Yoshimi Hataya of NEC Kyushu while her teammate, Kaori Mori, reached the semifinals, losing to Kanako Yonekura. In the All Japan Coporate league Badminton Championships in Jun 2004, Miho Tanaka was playing 1st singles for Sanyo, Eriko Hirose 2nd singles, and Kaori Mori 3rd singles.
In the Ranking Circuit Convention Japan 2004 in May 2004, she beat Kanako Yonekura in the final. Already, in the Japan Open in Apr 2004, she beat Salakjit Ponsana to qualify for the main draw, and took Zhou Mi to three games 5-11, 11-9, 8-11 in the first round.
Sanyo's webpage does not have her earlier playing records.

Looks like a Japanese No. 1 in the making...

i think she has a very cute endearing face! haha! when i heard of her name i thought of a person who spotted the ra kyung min / zhou mi kind of hairstyle, never expected her to look so young and cute!

only 20 yrs old. that's a great age to be at. the Chinese are having problems with their next generation WS players. none of them have the natural quality of the current 4 "flowers" Zhang, Gong, Zhou & Xie. and there are only a handful of hopefuls coming from other country. as a result, there will be a gap opening up for the 20 yrs old generation, and if Hirose can continue to train and improve, she can make herself to be a force in WS.

eriko hirose is very friendly, i asked her for a autograph during the aviva open and she was willing to give it and she kept smiling at me, and she was willing to take a photograph. and she tried to talk to me while i was waiting to get my paper back from the players who were also signing it. she asked me if i played badminton. she's really cute.
i think all the japanese players are friendly except for matsuda keita. i asked for his autograph and he gave it unwilling and after that he quickly walked away to somewhere else to do his stretching. but that was 2 years ago.
yonekura was nice. 2 years ago i met her while walking down the stairs at the indoor stadium in sg and she was walking up as she was walking up, she smiled at me and when i realized it was her i quickly chased her for her autograph and she gave it to me willingly and she smiled to. she kept saying something to me in japanese but i didnt understand.

i forgot to add that, i saw reiko and shiota and a feww really young looking players. reiko and shiota was always watching other matches and they didnt really go with the japanese team. there were 2 other men who looked rather young too who were always also seperated from the team.

i think eriko hirose is friendly, but she was very shy! after her match against zhangning, i went up to her and asked for her autograph. she looked at me shyly and i didnt know what she meant. she just put up her hand, which either means that she doesnt want to give, or she asked me to wait. after that she never came back. and up to now, when the whole competition has ended, i have not gotten her signature. but kanako yonekura is very friendly.
at first she was sucking her lollipop and didnt appear very approachable. then my friend and i went up to her and i was like waving about and "excuse me" to attract her attention. then while she was signing, my friend kept whispering in my ear to say "aligato" and so i said, and immediately she warmed up and gave a very sincere bow.
