for Loit

But way to go Zheng!!! It'll be a tough one against Henin though......

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

Zheng will give Henin a match, but I don't think she will beat her....yet.

Well, it's not suprised because Jie Zheng played excellent in last 12 months. I expected she could won that match and don't know why I don't PAW for this one


Inspiration is for amateurs

I saw Zheng play quallies at gold coast this year and I thought then she had a great game and potential to do well this year, move up the rankings and score some upset victrories. I think if she plays her very best and henin isn't quite at her best then it will be a good contest but can't really see her winning it.

it's disappointing because emilie lifts against the top players and really could have made an interesting match against henin (if she wins). hopefully zheng will do the same, but it is unlikely anyone will show it on tv.
