The reason for Ting Li and Tian Tian Sun's absence from the US Open

The reason they are absent from the US Open is that they have to join the whole Chinese Olympic Team for celebration around the whole China, and they are currently in Hong Kong. Tonight was a variety show and they both sang, throwing signed tennis balls to the audience. Know what, every spectator got a keyring randomly picked from the whole set of 32 (because China achieved 32 gold medals) at the entrance, I got the one with Li and Sun! I am still so happy now!

They were probably the least likekly to win out of the whole of the chinese team, so it's nice they're getting a celebration.

you know, I was so lucky that I didn't queue at all, because when I bought the tickets there wasn't much promotion and got the tickets from the ticket office easily
