Question How Many Asian Players in AO Will Get Past The First Round ?

Here are the Asian players (total of 27 players) in current entry list we have.
How many and who do you think can get past main draw r1 ?

Main Draw 13
19. Li, Na (CHN)
23. Sugiyama, Ai (JPN)
31. Zheng, Jie (CHN)
50. Peng, Shuai (CHN)
60. Nakamura, Aiko (JPN)
62. Mirza, Sania (IND)
68. Tanasugarn, Tamarine (THA)
73. Chan, Yung-Jan (TPE)
76. Sun, Tiantian (CHN)
81. Morigami, Akiko (JPN)
94. Lepchenko, Varvara (UZB)
106. Yuan, Meng (CHN)
109. WC Tulyaganova, Iroda (UZB)


Quali Draw 14
18. (q)Hsieh, Su-Wei (TPE) -r1
19. (q)Takao, Erika (JPN)
33. (q)Hisamatsu, Shiho (JPN)
44. (q)Namigata, Junri (JPN) -r1
48. (q)Chan, Chin-Wei (TPE)
49. (q)Yan, Zi (CHN) -r2
56. (q)Morita, Ayumi (JPN)
60. (q)Fuda, Ryoko (JPN)
68. (q)Chen, Yan-Chon (CHN)
76. (q)Chuang, Chia-Juang (TPE)
78. (q)Zhang, Shuai (CHN)
79. (q)Amanmuradova, Akgul (UZB)
81. (q)Okamoto, Seiko (JPN)
82. (q)Uberoi, Shikha (IND)


I'll go first,I say 9 will make it to (at least) the second round:
23. Sugiyama, Ai (JPN) -r3
31. Zheng, Jie (CHN) -r3
50. Peng, Shuai (CHN) -r2
60. Nakamura, Aiko (JPN) -r2
62. Mirza, Sania (IND) -r3
73. Chan, Yung-Jan (TPE) -r2
94. Lepchenko, Varvara (UZB) -r2
109. WC Tulyaganova, Iroda (UZB) -r2
49. (q)Yan, Zi (CHN) -r2


Sorry to Li,Sun,Yuan,Tammy and Akiko fans.
You may be surprised I don't pick Na.
I personally think Na is not in good form.As we can see she changed her coach to her husband.So still anything can happen.All I can say is good luck.
As for Yan,I expect a lot after the top 10 upset.

Melbourne.

Re: How Many Asian Players in AO Will Get Past The First Round ?

It really depends on their draw... anyway, these are my predictions:

Main Draw
19. Li, Na (CHN)
23. Sugiyama, Ai (JPN)
31. Zheng, Jie (CHN)
50. Peng, Shuai (CHN)
62. Mirza, Sania (IND)
109. WC Tulyaganova, Iroda (UZB)
and why not... Ayumi Morita

They seem in good form. Aiko and Akiko are a bit shaky so far. Mirza looks in good form.

Sugiyama, Tu, Morigami, Srebotnik, Rubin, Pironkova, Chan, Razzano

Re: How Many Asian Players in AO Will Get Past The First Round ?

Thanks.
But KK I mean "MD" first round.
So...I doubt 7 Asian qualifiers can make it even to the MD.

Melbourne.

Re: How Many Asian Players in AO Will Get Past The First Round ?

I meant;
19. (q)Takao, Erika (JPN)
33. (q)Hisamatsu, Shiho (JPN)
49. (q)Yan, Zi (CHN)
56. (q)Morita, Ayumi (JPN)
60. (q)Fuda, Ryoko (JPN)
79. (q)Amanmuradova, Akgul (UZB)
