LMAO, yes, Zi and Meng are so gonna be reaching the top 15

I hope Na will make top 15 in 2009. I don't know if Jie has what it takes to make top 15 And Shuai Nevermind.

I dunno Li Na and Jie Zheng aren't exactly young in tennis years.

In terms of longevity, Zheng looks more likely to stick around longer.

I wouldn't mind if Jie or Shuai make it there, but I especially want Shuai to do it!

Since Zheng's breakthrough at Wimbledon, she's been playing like a top 20 player (and her ranking isn't far from it). I hope she eventually makes it to the top 15.

Why do they have to be young? Ai Sugiyama made the Top 10 when she was 28. Players from Asia are generally late bloomers.

True, and let's not forget another Asian player who's tearing up the circuit in her granny panties!

Let's just hope Jie and Na stay healthy enough...if they're healthy they could have decent shots of getting there.

I doubt any of the rest could make it and I love Zi (including her looks) but she's not beautiful! Pretty - maybe, but not beautiful.

Re: Who will be the first Chinese female Tennis player to reach top 15 in 2009?

Top 15 is very realistic for Jie right now. I'd be more surprised if she didn't reach the top 15 than if she did. I like her doubles partner Zi a lot too and she has a great game to watch as well when it is on which at the moment it most definately is not. I'm not suggesting Zi could join Jie in the top 15 but she can certainly play a lot better than she is at the moment singles-wise and I would love to see her back in the top 50 at least. Oh, and I would say Zi is beautiful and sexy and any of these other words that are used to describe a woman who is regarded as attractive looking.

Jie is playing very consistently at the moment. Getting to the deep ends of tournaments and often losing to the eventual champions.

She deserves to be in the top 15.
