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 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).
