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.
Go Anne Keothavong, Akgul Amanmuradova, Samantha Stosur, Na Li, Liga Dekmeijere, Tamarine Tanasugarn ,Jill Craybas, Daniela Hantuchova, Natalie Grandin, Kimiko Date-Krumm, Elena Baltacha, Melanie South, Dominika Cibulkova, Caroline Wozniacki, Jie Zheng, Andrea Petkovic, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic
