The Chinese Players are on the move!!

I must say that I am impressed with ALL of the Chinese players that are currently on tour. All Chinese final in Estroil and they took the doubes title already. Very impressive ladies. I look for them to be a major factor and the latter part of the season, and I will predict that Li Na will win a major title this season

Venus Williams

Venus better have her hair fixed for the AO I'm just tired of it.

Let's just see how they play in Berlin, Rome and whereever else a tier I or II tournament they play.... As much as I like the Chinese players, I think they need to prove themselves a force by taking a few top 15 scalps from QF stage onwards before I am fully comfident of them posing a threat in the big tournies. I think if Li Na continues such good form on clay, Zheng also, and get the big wins, they will get more confident and break the mental weakness they have against bigger players (especially Na). Then, I think, they will be a force to be reckoned with!

Sun Tian Tian
2 Top-10 wins (Serena Williams and Patty Schnyder)
1 Singles Title (Tashkent '06, defeating Azarenka, Tulyaganova)
13 Doubles Titles (including 2004 Olympic Gold and 2008 AO Mixed)
Career High 77 (Singles) and 16 (Doubles)

I agree....just like it was with the Russians, they are slowly but surely making their move. It takes a while but you can see it's happening!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

I'm enjoying the rise of the Chinese. I really believe Na Li is the best of the bunch, and she deserves to be ranked higher than where she is right one.

The Chinese do need some new younger players if they're going to have a rise similar to the Russians.

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