Mi-ra had to play domestic tournament last week and she will play two challenger events in China.

It was Korea National Game, kind of national Olympic games with all kind of sports, and her team won the Gold medal.

Mi-Ra's team is consist of Mi-Ra Jeon, Yoon-Jeong Cho and Da-Jung Hong. Her team beat Hansol team(of Jin-Hee Kim and Kyung-Mi Chang, and supporter for two high school girls, So-Jung Kim and Ye-Ra Lee) in the semi-final. In the final, Mi-ra lost in her singles game to Mi-Ok Kim but she won the final doubles match with YJ Cho over Jin-Young Choi/ Mi-Ok Kim pair, so her team could win the Gold medal.
That's the only tournament Mi-Ra and YJ plays for her team in their homeland without any WTA ranking points.
I wish Mi-ra plays more WTA tour and ITF challengers for next year.

BTW, Ye-Ra Lee's team won the Gold medal in the high-school league in the same tournament. And Ye-Ra Lee is playing another domestic junior tournament this week, and she will play the final tomorrow for the singles championship.

Mi-Ra left a message on her fan-page last Friday. She said she feel tight on her muscle due to recent weight training. She said she would leave for hometown for her younger sister's wedding ceremony on that night.
And she said she would leave for China on Sunday morning.
She also mentioned her fan's support and said hello to them and promised them to participate a fan meeting if the date can be arranged.

She also said that she would play in the Korea Tennis Championship (Oct. 30~ Nov. 7). So, she should finish her job before this weekend. (no more play for next week in Chinese challenger) Maybe there would be some pressure to play more in the domestic tournament.

Anyway,.... Go, Mi-ra!

Good to hear she's doing weight training!!! Hope she plays well in china this week and moves her ranking up. Though I wish she would try to play Quebec City instead of domestic events...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Looks like Mi-Ra's training is playing off, as today she upset top seeded, Jie Zheng (#65) in two convincing sets, and enters the Quarterfinals to play Nakamura! Let's hope that Mi-Ra can keep playing great tennis!

Mi-ra had one before,.. maybe 2 or 3 years back. The name was miralove??.com or something, but the admin had to join military service that time and had closed for good.
Now Mi-ra has her fan page where she often visits and leaves messages, but it's not a website dedicated for Mi-ra,..it's a just small cyber space in an internaet portal site. And it's all written in Korean. So no website for international users.

Her team has decided to make its players to enter the tournament so Mi-ra seems to have no other choice.
All of her team members including YJ Cho and APT player Hyung-Taik Lee will also join it.
During Oct. 30~31, there will be a qualifying rounds and the 32 or 48 Main draw matches will start from Monday or Tuesday, that is, Nov. 1 or Nov. 2. The tournament is saying they will give seeds according to domestic ranking so I have no idea which seeding Mi-Ra will have.
But I don't think Mi-ra should play the qualifying rounds, so there would be no problem for this week's Shenzhen challenger.

It's autumn and wedding season again.
It makes Mi-ra somewhat depressed. ( also to me. )

I found several pictures of Mi-ra taken recently. This is the picture taken in her friend's wedding ceremony.

Bad news.

Mi-ra left a message on her fan page and it says she injured her hip joint so she was going to cancel to go for New Zealand for a WTA event. She also mentioned that it's not likely she can play Aussie open qualies as well.

Mi-Ra said after the Hansol open where she won the WTA tour doubles title and she had been suffered from various injuries since then. She said she spend her time for rehab. She said she felt sorry to say this bad news just before the Christmas and seasons greeting.

Get well soon, Mi-Ra~~
