I love Asian Tennis players. Maybe I'm just biast. :p

I have really gotten a thrill seeing a strong contingence of Japanese (Ai, Asagoe, Obata, Akiko), and Chinese (Zheng, Peng, Sun, Li) ascend the rankings as of late, and a similar trend appears to be coming true in juniors as well:

Chinese Taipei has Yung-Jan Chan at #3, Wen-Hsin Hsu at #17, China has Sheng-Nan at #21 and Korea, So-Jung Kim at #39.

My question is, has anyone seen these young players? What are their prospects?

Sheng-Nan Sun is very very talented and will be in the top 50. So-Jung Kim is also very talented but I am not sure about Chan, I don't know anything about her.

Ayu-Fani Damayanti is another up-and-comer to watch out of Indonesia.

BTW, you should not forget to put world JR ranked 25 Pichittra Thongdach of Thailand in the list. She is talented girl as well. See her profile here http://www.jirobkk.com/player_profile_mam.htm

Kim So Jung.. watch her... she will be big..

And the two Taipei girls..Yung Jan and Wei Hsin..

Ayu Fani was supposedly good at her age, cause she is still 15, but well, there were others that are better..
