The poor girl is under ridiculous amounts of pressure.

And we wonder why these young athletes turn to drugs.....such pressure.
I am positive all the other pro tennis players in China have not won gold medals at the Olympics, in Asia or elsewhere.

Shuai was crying when she was told she must promise she can get Olympic gold medal in a talk between she and one Chinese tennis official.
The official said she must follow the national team to play tournaments,if she wanna play alone,she had to promise she can win the 2008 Olympic gold medal.Because Chinese&Tianjin Tennis Association afford all the expenses of Shuai's training and playing tournaments,so She must get a excellent result in Olympic Games.

It's a reality that can't be changed in China,no matter how people will think about it.
Anyway,good luck to Shuai(beibei)

What I don't get is why Peng continues to accept the money from the Chinese Associations. Can't she manage on her own like most other pro tennis players?

Thats pathetic of the Chinese tennis authorities! I hope for her sake that she ditches them after 2008 should she fail. They should not put this ridiculous pressure on her!

No,she won't do that without permission of CTA,because if she break up with CTA,she will got a lot of pressure from public and media in China,and she want to play in Beijing2008 Olympic Games.
