Did Kim Po do it for a wildcard? I thought she did it in Zurich because she was scared of being a terrorist target playing as US just after 9/11.

Tanasugarn was born in Los Angeles and moved to Thailand when she was a child, thus Thailand is really her home country. She holds dual citizenship, but she's never represented in the United States.

Kristina Brandi used to play for the US but now plays for Puerto Rico. I don't know of anyone who did it for a day.

hm some lower ranked players like Mariana Correa who played for Ecuador before and Paula Zabala who plays for Columbia now. Nina Munch-Soegaard has also a double nationality (Norway/USA) as Lolita Frangulian (Uzbekistan/USA). I think Varvara Lepchenko was listed as American once too.
I remember Stephanie Chi, who played for the States and Taiwan.
Alanna Broderick (Jamaika and USA) and Megan Moulton-Levy (Jamaika and USA).
Alexandra Podkolzina (USA/Russia); Jessica and Kim-Anh Nguyen (Vietnam and USA); Tara Iyer (India/USA); Masha Bayser (USA(/Israel); Jie Zeng (USA/China);

What a walking encyclopaedia! I'm amazed at some of the people on this board with their knowledge of so many players!
