Okay, I'm confused. I thought the Asian games were already played. Didn't Yung-Jan get the wildcard?

Re: Asian Games | Dec 4 - Dec 14 | Doha, Qatar

apparently each country can only enter 2 players in the singles draw
what a shame as Peng and Tian Tian could have been title contenders

Hopefully Japan will win some medals in the tennis. I would have thought Aiko but she has lost Akgul and Erika Takao recently, maybe Akiko could do some damage...
