Her compatriot Kei Nishikori has also enjoyed a good run in the men's singles, setting up a great photo opportunity.
And she's had plenty of friends and famous names equally thrilled with her achievements.

Saturday's final will be the second clash on court between the two, after their meeting in Indian Wells earlier this year - but they bumped into each other a few years ago as well.
