I have to cheer for the Asians, all of whom I love, but especially these three.
Whoot for Tenacious Tu!
I have been a big fan of Meilen since a bit before she won Auckland a few years back, and I would love to see her have a good tournament here, maybe eclipsing her Auckland result this year, and hopefully exceeding it. She has a tough draw unfortunately, against Marissa, but I think she can win it.
Yippie Yuka -
Would it not be awesome for her to win this, and come close to the top 100 again?
Shuai Peng -
I would really like to see her go deep into this tournament and get inside the top 100. This draw is similar to some of the 75K's she has won in the past, maybe she can take this one too!
And, Nathalie Grandin -
Yes, she is not Asian, but has she ever had a cheering thread? She has had some decent results in doubles with Curran and Nicole, but hopefully it will carry over to this event!
