Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

Also, when (the year) do you think they will win it and which Grand Slam.

I would say Shuai Peng 2010 US Open.

Maria Sharapova 2004 Wimbledon, geographically Siberia is part of Asia

Seriously, I don't think it will happen in this generation.

Re: Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

I am sure an Asian player will win a slam one day, but it won't anybody we have heard of yet.......unless Iroda Tulyaganova manages to capture her past form, and then exceed it considerably.

I don't think the players on the list are multidimensional enough to seriously challenge for one.

Re: Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

As an Indian-American, I feel insulted by this snub of Sania Mirza. She is still in singles at the Asian Games. I don't know the current result. However, my point is made. She can play. She is not quite the athlete of Oberoi sisters who aren't mentioned as well. I don't dispute the other Asian players but please Ai Sugiyama over Sania. I know Ai has a better overall record than Sania but no power to match the Russians and other Asians in slams.

Re: Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

I don't think the first Asian Grand Slam winner is going to be anyone from this generation. In fact, I'm not sure any of the other girls listed will be able to be as successful as Ai has been. An Asian Grand Slam winner will happen, but I'm not sure when.

Re: Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

Yun-Jan Chan seems to be very promising... Do you think she could win a slam?

Re: Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

This Poll is a Joke. You left many players.

Yes it is possible. There are a lot of talented Asians. Na Li is the best bet after that Sania Mirza.

I would fancy Sania's chances of winning USO.(not now but may be five years from now. Who knows Right now she is amatuer but when she finds a right coach her games will be dominating.)

Any i won't mind players winning grand slams i would be happy if they win some Tier I or Tier II tourneys. I won't be dissapointed if they don't win GS.

Re: Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

None of the current Asian players will be winning a slam. It will happen at some point but not with the current group.

Re: Who Will Be the First Asian Female To Win A Grand Slam?

Isn't Russia Asia? Plus all those nations a little to the west of Russia. So do you guys mean like South East Asia and South Asia?

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.
