Thanks for that Jiro <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />Nice to see Tammy playing in the Goldcoast tourney - she has no points to defend there, so it could be a big advantage to her <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />Good luck Tammy ..... hope you enjoy your chirstmas break as well <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I'm still not sure if she will play Gold Coast or New Zealand from Dec-31 - Jan-6 or not. She and her coach said at Pattaya that probably she will play exhibition match in Hong Kong end of this year.

I totally agree with you that Tammy should focus on her ranking. She can gain some benefit of point since she has no point to defend if she play Gold Coast or Nea Zealand. <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

Hope Tammy can hear from us. <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />

I was just checking the average number of tourneys per year for players in the top 50. It is around 24 / year. This includes the Williamses who are at 12 and 10.<br />There are very few players at 29-30 tourneys per year. It could prove to be a bit heavy.<br />I think that 25 - 27 tourneys per year is a good figure.

Her coach (Mr. Panomkorn) told me that next year Tammy may skip some tournament in Asian and play some in door tournament in Europe instead. Tammy used to gaive some interview that she love to play indoor court. <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" />

Jiro, do you think Tammy will play the Asian Games next year?

It's the same week as Japan Open and the week after, so I wouldn't be surprised Tammy choose to play in Europe as an "excuse" to skip the Asian Games. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

If Tammy plays the Exibition in Hong Kong from Jan 2-5, she may miss the Qualies in the Adidas cos they start on the 4th I think. I hope she gets a wildcard, or doesn't have to qualify cos she needs some points. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Danker : Lawn Tennis Association Thailand(LTAT) has announced recently that Tammy and Paradorn will play Asian Games. <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> Danker, Do you know when Asian Games start. I have no idea about her planning schedule but I just heard from Mr. Panomkorn, her coach. He said Tammy always make planning schedule by herself. I asked her at Pattaya, she said she didn't make schedule yet. Unfortunately, I didn't meet her on Monday in $50K King's and Queen's Cup.

Wally : <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> Mr. Panomkorn always will be with Tammy in Grand Slam. Hope you can catch him and have a chat with him. Tell him you know me, Jiro from Thailand. BTW, Do you know him. If you don't know, please see his photo below :

<br />Mr. Panomkorn, Tammy's coach

Benny : <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> Tammy has committed to play and her name is already appeared in the tournament website. For my understanding, qualify match of Adidas International will start on Saturday, Jan 5,2002. She may ask the tournament organizer to give her one day off in case that she reach single final or double final. But I don't think she will reach the final. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" />

I used to learn Japanese more than 4 years after working. I am working for Japanese firm in Thailand and working so closed to the Managing Director. My company have more than 2,500 Thai's local employees and 25 Japanese staffs. I am speaking Japanese to them and also translate to Thai's local employees.

Danker ! I am very glad because most of Japanese players look so happy when I speak Japanese to them. <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />
