Re: i think CTA better put Jie Zheng pair with Tiantian Sun
I think there is real chemistry between those two - Zheng and Yan - and would not like to see them broken up. It's a true joy to watch them play together!
Why do you suggest Sun anyway? She is not near Zheng's level in singles, so would they be at the same events anyway?
Peng is closer to Zheng in terms of what they can qualify for. And Peng should be playing dubs (if as you say Na will not).
Recommendations (for discussion):
1. CTA to focus on improving Yan's singles - invest in a special coach for her, and make her development a priority. She deserves it, with her success in dubs, and her improvement will help more than Yan.
Doing this will help the situation in 2008, and the following years.
2. For 2007 and into next year, set up "second" dubs teams, for use when they play tournaments they can qualify for in singles. Why not Zheng-Peng, and Yan-Sun?
(I'm not very clear where Ting Li fits into the picture.)
