i watched the Estoril Final on the chinese channel, Na Li Vs Safarova. Li has a few good shots, but her serve seems to be a bit weak. I haven't really seen any of the other chinese players.. but my guess is that Shuai Peng will have the best career, and also she has less restrictions right?

Na Li is so good right now but Shuai is so much younger. Hard to say

Peng isn't that much younger, and Li Na has missed big chunks of her career. Peng has actually played more pro matches than Li Na. Having said that, Peng does seem to have more raw talent, but shes very unpredictable.

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

Na is a great player , but Shuai is younger and will have more opportunities in her career, so I'll say Shuai

I'd say Shuai because she has less restrictions and has more time in her career. But Na is very close, and theres a few more coming up that are very talented.

I think Shuai Peng and Na Li will be the leading women of China, but it's still early; some other Chinese woman may come out of nowhere.

When it comes to doubles, Tiantian Sun and Ting Li (who has shown us also of few things in singles) will be a force to be reckoned with.

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Na Li - should be in top 15 or higher if injury free and playing full schedule. She has taken Kuznetsova to 3rd set tiebreak and come close to beating Patty. She also took Petrova to 2 tough sets. In addition, utterly annilates lower ranked opponents (like double bagel Pratt and double breadstick Dinara) which is a characteristic of a top player.

Shuai Peng - Will be top 20 at some point in career. Too talented not to. Wins in 2005 over Myskina, Petrova, Golovin, Shaugnessy. Took Justine to 3 tough sets during Juju's clay winning streak.

Jie Zheng - Perennial top 50 player but doesn't really have the weapons to go higher. Her speed is not enough.

Nan-Nan Liu, Tian Tian Sun and Ting Li - Not sure cause have never seen them play

Zi Yan - Beautiful game. Should add some more muscle to her frame cause she is like a broomstick. Good at the net also. No reason why she is not as good as Zheng.

I think Na Li will have the best career followed by Shuai Peng.

Petra Kvitova
Golovin-Dementieva-Likhovtseva-Beltrame-Benešová-Chakvetadze-Szávay-Paszek-Cirstea

Shuai Peng has really come on leaps and bounds this year.

The Chinese value what they achieve for their country more than what what they do for themselves, therefore it could be argued that if you were to ask the players Tian Tian Sun & Ting Li have done the best in securing a gold medal at the Olympics for China.

Na Li will be like Kimiko Date, I think. A few grand slam semi's and a few big titles + top 10
