Wow,...... I really didn't expect to make a cheering thread for an Asian player.
But Mi-ra definitely needs some support and cheer from some fans for now.
Yesterday, Mi-ra left a message on her fan site that she will do her very best until she retires to be an unforgettable tennis player to her fans.... after seeing more new members on the site and supports from them. It's really good to hear that.
Mi-ra said she would leave for Dubai today,...and then Vietnam.
She has been quite unlucky after early success in junior in many ways. She once retired due to poor management of her team (
they just abandoned her after putting BIG pressure on her ) and came back later with different team but still struggling. She was sooooo close to enter GS qualy lately,... but missed all. ( 1st in waiting list in US open 2001,.... runner-up in Asian Championship for Assie Open this year)
Today, Mi-ra is going to Dubai ALONE,... and her teammate Yoon-joeng Cho is going to US for 4week tour with some staffs.
She's very nice and kind,.... and it's her biggest weakness in her game. She is not a player who have kind of killer instinct or cocky attitude. It brings me great sympathy for her, though.
Go, Mi-ra! You can do it!!!
