Chinese Media: The Day After...
What is next?
The achievement of Jhie and Na Li saw a high level of interest in China and chinese diaspora.
There were reports of socieal network websites crashing, saturation on TV and print press about the achiement of the two women.
This was really historical because the Chinese Tennis Federation has taken an unorthodox approach to tennis: a hybrid of socialist collectivist strucrure with some dosage of capitalist compensation system.
Now the 2 women have bowed out, with very unven peformance level.
Na Li was obviously highly competitve and could have reached the final.
Jie, on the other hand, got a brutal and rude awakening by a very efficient Henin.
Following these results, what is now the mood in china and in the various media outlets cited above?
Chinese posters from all provinces of china, your contribution would be greatly appareciated by being this forum eyes and ears with your generous comments.
This would become a historical record for this forum, freezing the day that 2 women from China made the semi-final at the Pacific/Asian Open in 2010.
