Will Asia dominating womans tennis?

I know the American and european player dominating the tennis right now but i wonder its very weird if the Asians dominating and put their name at top 10 world players Like womans badminton which is dominating by China's player, will Asia grow up it's player to start the controversy in tennis?

I would be happy with more Asians just being in the game right now. I think they excel in things like badminton and table tennis and not tennis because they are smaller people on average, and in tennis size is important. Also Asians place a lot of importance on education so they are more likely to finish school or university before joining the tour, so they waste some years doing that. I dont think Asia will be a major force in tennis but definitely there has to be improvement on what they are doing now.

well if Belgium can be a major factor in tennis ... I'm sure one day some Asian girl will rise up and do some great things

They will need to get stronger, taller, and more powerful. That's the bottom line.

Unfortunately they can't.. not at this moment.. There are some are really improving though and they might just give some challenges to those top 20!!

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a stronger Asian presence in the upper echelons at some point. Top 50, top 30, etc. Not too long ago, Japan had 5 or 6 top 30 players at the same time.

But they'll have to make sure they don't wear them down with national commitments on top of the tour schedule.

there's sugiyama, widjaja, tanasugarn, and cho. they all have what it takes to at least be in the top 30. asian tennis will soon improve and i bet that there will be an asian in the top 10 in about 5 years.

ugh, why do they all suck????????

iroda has top 10 talent, if hsieh can get back to her old self there might be another top 30 talent on their hands maybe even top 20. cho has the talent to be top 25 as does suyigama and widjaja and tanasugarn have top 30 talent. so imo asian tennis is on the rise. if iroda was to make the top 10 then i think it would suddenly sky rocket.

asian players are normally smaller in size which is a disadvantage for something like tennis.
