Women's Japanese Open 2002
Osaka, 7 - 11 August


A fifth consecutive title for Adriana Behar-Shelda?

The FIVB Women’s World Tour returns to the beaches of Osaka where the premiere women's teams will once again compete for a place on the podium.

Last year the Brazilian duo of Adriana-Shelda won their fourth consecutive Japan Open title against then newcomers Kerri Walsh and Misty May of the USA.  Spectacular performances of the two teams attracted and moved many spectators into the Shiozai Vivalle.  But in this year's World Tour  the Americans are on a roll and will surely be seeking to deny the South American pair their fifth title here in Japan.
