Clearly, she's on her way to becoming a household name. She has slowed down, she is probably not so "hungry" anymore, and she has been losing more matches, including a recent 6-0, 6-1 defeat to Johanna Konta in California. Although her parents had her represent Japan for non-financial reasons, it definitely proved to be an important decision for many reasons, even financially.
