Thumbs up so how great is hsieh?

i watched her play mixed and although she lost, she is the best returner of the men's serve I guess. She's like a metre inside the baseline on their second serves and she must have the best hands on tour. She also saves so much energy because she doesn't make hundret split steps, she just relies on her anticipation and her wonderful touch. those angles
She also shares a smile a lot, mixed doubles for her and ullyet was fun and still they almost beat the no2 seeds. while cara and leander were so focussed.
After their quarterfinal ullyets little daughter came on court and hsieh was highfiving with her and talked to her - that was nice
Definitely, she got a new fan in me

Re: so how great is hsieh?

she is AMAZING. She is one of my favorite players for the sheer fact that she can do absolutely anything. Her touch is easily one of the best in the game at the moment, but she never plays.

Awwwww, that was sooooo cute


Su-Wei can be amazing when she's on, and when she wants to win. She and Kevin played in Wimbledon too and they really had fun playing together, it's so cute that they were always smiling

Re: so how great is hsieh?

She is one of the most talented players ever.
Too bad she doesn't love herself a tad bit though.

What do you mean?

I followed her early on in her career, but then she seemed to disappear. Nice to see her doing well.

If she had any respect for herself and her fans, she'd actually make some effort to have a nice singles career and a LOT more success.

Since AO 08, she's always looked so negative and bored during singles, but that always changes in doubles.

I love watch Hsieh play too. She can really get some incredible angles on some of her shots.

Re: so how great is hsieh?

She is an extremely skilled doubles player. Just needs to become a bit more consistent in her regular pairing with Peng. They had such a good season up to and including the French but since then have barely won matches.

I wonder if she does end it with Peng (I haven't heard anything but just considering), she might play with Chuang who doesn't really have a regular partner. Her and Chuang have played the last couple of Asian swings together and have already won 3 titles.
