No big changes since the 7th of november...;excepting Tamarine Tanasugarn who's back on the challenger circuit after a very poor season and a fall in the ranking (over the 150). In november she won a 50K$ challenger in Shenzen and was 2 times quaterfinalist (Korea and Australia, both 50K$ chal)

as of jaunary 9, 2006 (excluding UZB)

1. Ai Sugiyama JPN (26)
2. Sania Mirza IND (34)
3. Shinobu Asagoe JPN (39) +1
4. Shuai Peng CHN (42)-1

5. Jie Zheng CHN (44)
6. Akiko Morigami JPN (45)
7. Na Li CHN (54)
8. Aiko Nakamura JPN (62)
9. Yoon Jeong Cho KOR (73)
10. Zi Yan CHN (101) +1
11. Saori Obata JPN (103) +2

12. Tian Tian Sun (108)
13. Rika Fujiwara JPN (110) -3
14. Tamarine Tanasugarn THA (128)
15. Su-Wei Hsieh TPE (138)
16. Meng Yuan CHN (152)
17. Shikha Uberoi IND (153)
18. Ryoko Fuda JPN (161)
19. Suchanan Viratprasert THAI (179) NEW ENTRY
20. Seiko Okamoto JPN (181) NEW ENTRY


Shinobu Asagoe took the "bronze medal" to Shuai Peng who lost 6 places in the world ranking with the new system.
Zi Yan makes a Top 10 entry at the beginning of 2006, and I think that she really deserves it considering her current tennis level. Step by step, she prooves that she's not only a double specialist.
Saori Obata is up 2 spots in the Asian Top 20 (and 7 places in the world ranking) ...without playing last week (only due to new ranking system).
Suchanan Viratprasert and Seiko Okamoto benefits from the new ranking system to be part of the Top 20. They're up more than 1à places in the world ranking with the new system.

Na could have been the #1 of Asia if she did not suffer form injury and so many bad draws..........

19. Shiho Hisamatsu (162) NEW ENTRY
20. Miho Saeki (176) NEW ENTRY


A lot of change in the Asian National Top 20: In the Top 10, most of the ranking movements are due to girls who slumped in the world ranking...:Shinobu Asagoe and Shuai Peng are both loosing 2 places and getting out of the Top 50 that's the reason why Akiko Morigami and Jie Zheng are up 1 spot with stable world ranking.
The corean Yoon Jeong Cho is up around 10 places in the world ranking (significant result: Runner up in Camberra) and overtakes Na Li and Aiko Nakamura.
19 y.o chinese Meng Yuan has played very good tennis in Australia and is up around 50 places in the world ranking and 3 in the National (she performed really well in the Australian Open reaching the 2nd round of the main draw after qualifying).
Tamarine Tanasugarn is slumping in the National and in the World ranking: due to her low ranking she has to play most of the time qualies in tournements where she was in the Main Draw the year before...so it's hard to make a lot of points.
2 new entry:
Shiho Hisamatsu who succed to reach the final round of the qualies in 2 big occasions (AO and Tokyo Tier I with hre 1rst big victory over a Top 50 Iveta Benesova).
Miho Saeki is a former n°65 in the world in june 1998, and after 3 years fininshong outside the Top 200, she's back in. On 3 occasions she reached the 2nd round of the qualies (AO, Camberra and Tokyo with victories over Top 150 players such as Alves n°145, Pelletier n°134 and Hsieh n°127).

Actually, Miho Saeki has been as high as #56.

I really hope a few of those players get out of their slump soon!
