Re: Shenzhen $50K Final: (3)Meng Yuan def. (6)Iroda Tulyaganova 4-6 7-5 6-1
Well done Meng. I don't think she gets enough credit for the player she is. I think she's definately the forgotten player of the Chinese players. Granted, her results haven't been that spectacular, and she isn't with the CTA, but she's a fighter and I like that a lot.
It's good stuff from Iroda. If she keeps up this form she should be able to win a round or two at the Australian Open. I'm hoping she Varvara and Akgul (provided she gets there) can all do well at the Aussie.
I think Iroda was injured too, so I'm not sure if she and Akgul will play the doubles final or not.
