I thought it was a pretty good year. There were actual
televised matches featuring Cho, and Angie at the US Open.
There were more Asians in the draws than previous years.
Ai, Tammy, and Iroda may have had bad matches- but
there alot of new faces that make things interesting.
I like the fact that an Asian in the draw doesn't always
equate an easy cake walk anymore. I know alot of people
think they're pushovers such as the French, and Australians-
but it just isn't the case anymore.
As I said in a previous post somewhere in this website-
the new great tennis players of the future won't come
from the old strong hold of English speaking Western
countries anymore. Forget about the USA- are there any
good players after the Sisters? Australia? HA!! England?
Ha!! HA!! South Africa? HA!! HA!!
The best players will come from elsewhere. Look at Eleni D
the Greek. Is there anybody in the USA at that potential
right now? NO! The tour will have more diverse countries
represented than ever. Asia hasn't even touched the surface
in potential WTA tour candidates yet.
