Madrid Q1R: Vania King d [ALT] Former GOAT Zi Yan 60 63

Zi Yan playing a singles WTA match

clearly she is not in the form to play singles anymore but at least it brought back memories of her GOAT 2006-2007 play when she reached R16 of Sydney, SF of Rabat, R32 of Berlin, R32 of Rome, SF of Toronto and SF of Bangkok (defeating Ivanovic, Jankovic and Bartoli along the way)

at least she is still out there trying

Re: Madrid Q1R: Vania King d [ALT] Former GOAT Zi Yan 60 63

Zi Yan She's one of my favourite Chinese players

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

how do you know that there's tension between them? they hung out recently at a drinking bar (pic was posted on jie's blog. it was during the family cup) and plus they comment on each other's blog sometimes. when i told yan zi to vote for jie for the madrid WC she was all for it. and plus, not too long ago, they talked of playing doubles together again.
