Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

CJ
losing to Ivanovic/Petkovic in doubles is just not acceptable!
I pray that she and Hsieh come to their sense and reinstate their partnership - they had been playing so well together this year!

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

Chuang partnered Amanmuradova on route to a title in Strasbourg this week!
Well done, CJ - what a great confidence booster for the FO!

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

Chia-Jung/Govortsova lost to Stubbs/Dellaqua 4-6 0-6 in first round of Roland Garros. Disappointing results, even when their opponents are really tough. I think its time Chia-Jung re-evaluate who she should pair up with. I dont think Govortsova is in her calibre in terms of doubles.

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

^ Both of you are so right. Govortsova is an average doubles player at best, and is not someone that Chuang should be regularly teaming up with. Outside of Beijing last year, all of their results together have been really quite poor. I don't know what her motivation to continue playing with Olga, because it most certainly can't be results. Again, as I feel I have stressed 203847320 times (lol), I just do NOT see why she and Hsieh don't team up together. I understand that this year Hsieh has been putting aside more time for singles, and thus is playing some low-level ITFs that CJ wouldn't want to venture to, but they really did phenomenally at the AO, defeating two quality teams and pushing the finalists to 3 tough sets.
I don't know about you all, but I'm hoping to see some 'C. Chuang / S. Hsieh' on some upcoming draw sheets this grass season!

Ditto that! Chia-Jung and Su-Wei make a really good team! I dont know though, Taiwanese tennis is full of internal drama, who knows why Chia-Jung is not playing with Su-Wei...I hope these girls would just sort out their problem and start pairing up more often. (Same goes for Yung-Jan)

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

Yes, I've heard similar stories, but what I've also heard is that the issues are more kind of family rivalries than actual tensions between the players. Both watching Su-Wei and Chia-Jung actually playing together at the AO and reading their interview it seems that they are close and have a good relationship/chemistry. If it is family issues, I just wish that their parents/siblings/or whoever would just get over it - they're only hindering their daughters chances by prefering them to play with the likes of Govortsova, Kudryavtseva, and other, less accomplished players.

Yes, i hope so too. What i have heard is that the family are usually fighting about is the funding allocated to each player. I guess until, more funds are provided to Taiwanese tennis player, there will always be competitive friction between each player's family/entourage. Still, this is so stupid, if Chia-Jung and Su-Wei had paired up, they might have earned more than 1st round prize money at Roland Garros this time. Anyway good luck to Chia-Jung and Su-Wei in mix doubles!

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

Ahh, I didn't know that it was regarding funding! But still, I find such disputes rather odd, as all 3/4 of Taiwan's best known female tennis players (Chuang, Hsieh, and Chan) all are far more accomplished doubles players than singles players. As you said, if they teamed up more often, the 'funding' wouldn't be an issue, as their results would likely be quite solid and make up for whatever supposed lacking that their families are feeling.

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

Now only if we can get the message across to these girls and their family. But i suppose its never going to be easy to make peace between them.
Chan's family usually gets a lot more funding than the other girls, probably due to her accomplishments. Su-Wei has a brother and a sister that are both trying to make it in professional tennis, so a lot of her funding and prize money are spent on them. I know thats the reason why she concentrated on doubles last year, cause she knows she can make more prize money from doubles. Not sure about Chia-Jung, but i know she is not well off in terms of money, and neither is Kai-Chen...This is very sad, so many talented players, if only more fundings are provided for them.

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

That's very interesting.
Yes, Chan has had probably the greatest accomplishments, with currently the best singles and doubles ranking, and having played well in both for the past few years. I assume that this funding is allocated from some kind of Taiwanese tennis federation or something?

Re: Chia-Jung Chuang cheering thread

Yes, from the Taiwanese tennis federation, which receive their funding from the Government. Unfortunately, Taiwan does not focus too much on sports, and whatever funding available is mostly given to Olympic sports where Taiwan excels in e.g. Taekwondo, baseball etc...and even those aren't sufficient. Most tennis players are left to fend for themselves until they achieve something, such as Chan/Chuang getting to Aussie open final or Su-Wei making 4th round of a grand slam. Of course, there are a few sponsers who support the top players, but again the funding provided is just not enough for proper coaching and training.
