These Chinese pairs are tearing up the doubles draw
Have to say the results from Tian Tian Sun & Ting Li and Jie Zheng & Zi Yan have been very impressive this week.
I know Sun & Li are the #16 seeds but they beat two very solid teams in their first two matches, Tatarkova & Prakusya 6-0 6-2 and Asagoe & Obata 6-0 6-2 also. They are up against Suarez & Ruano Pascual next so the fun will probably end there for them but hopefully they can give them a good match.
Zheng & Yan have also been very impressive beating the Sydney winners Black & Stubbs 6-4 6-2 in the first round and Kostanic & Jeyaseelan 7-5 6-1, good when you consider Kostanic hadn't lost a doubles match so far in 2004 until that point. Next up are Adriana Serra Zanetti & Sam Reeves so they've a good chance for a quarter final spot.
One of these pairs could be an outside chance of a medal slot at the Olympics I think.
