best of luck to Matea Mezak and Kristina Czafikova <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I'm not surprised with Yan-Hua Dong's thrashing of the 7th seed. She's a good player concentrating on the pro circuit, rather than play much juniors. And she did beat Elena Bovina in March last year. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Good luck to 15 year old Joanne Cheung against the 3rd seed, although I can't see her winning. I hope she one day achieves the dream of being Top 10 in Asia. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Eggy, Yan-Hua is 18 this year.
She's listed as 165cm and 64kg.

BTW, were there any other players that you found impressive in those 2 Chinese tourneys?

Na Li was the one other "Asian youngster"that impessed me , she did pretty good and got to semis at both events , lost to Elena in 1st 7-6 6-3 , that was pretty close encounter with lots of deuce games.
