Well she did it two weeks ago in Doha too, another Tier II, and was lucky to get into that draw also :lol: In the MD she fought very well against in-form Virginie Razzano, so the signs are there... but then again, she has lost to Ozegovic and Little Shuai so far this year, which is not very glorious :o

I copy pasted the part of LudwigDworak's report about the Tiantian match.

Some very complimentary and nice comments about Tiantian :bounce:
Sun v. Henke


Got here at 9:30, walked around a little bit. I have no water bottle. YIKES. But it looks like a tan this week is plausible. Most people here are teenagers that are in a tennis team at school, it'd appear. I haven't seen any players practice yet but that's just one goal. I'll go to the MD ceremony at noon for a bit, then watch hot mess Alex Stevenson. The weather is beautiful, nice and sunny and breezy. Some lady next to me was kind of talkative, irritating.

Tiantian is BEAUTIFUL, I can't believe how pretty she is. If practice is anything like the match Sun is going to hit out. A lot. Both hit very flat, Henke has solid skills at net. Sun's BH DTL is fantastic - she got the early break after Henke was up 40-0, she's exposing Henke's FH, which comes up short in the court often. Lots of fun rallies already. Vanessa is the one changing pace, she needs to since Sun is overpowering her in the flat baseline rallies. I love Sun's reactions. Sun was up 40-0 too but GREAT point to break back, with a Henke BH DTL passing shot winner. Sun likes to hit around her FH. She fell down 2-4 with careless errors, but great game to come back. Henke's hit like one winner, I think. Sun should win. I'm the only "woo-wooing." Second Henke winner, inside out BH. "COME ON" from Sun. Another. Sun has a good second serve. She REALLY pounds the ball, such good defense too, probably why Henke can't hit winners. At 4-4 0-40 Henke comes up with two great points, then a netcord for her keeps a ball that was obviously going out into the court, deuce. Failed drop shot, adv Sun, game sun. *54. So many people are here. Sun was up 30-0 but Henke fought really hard and hit some wonderful winners.

TB:
0-1 - Sun return error
1-1 - Henke FH into the net
2-1 - driving rally which Sun wins
2-2 - long rally, Sun slice long
3-2 - Sun inside out FH winner
4-2 - same exact point, basically, Sun inside out FH winner
4-3 - Sun drives FH volley, then Henke hits winner
4-4 - ball hits weird spot, Sun can't do anything
4-5 - Sun's FH goes into the net
5-5 - return into the net for Henke
6-5 - Sun FH winner into the BH corner
7-5 - Sun's return hits the baseline, Henke hits a weak lob, and Sun smashes it for the set

(the graph below isn't anything that I wrote, but I recall it)
I missed the first four/five games of the second set, but I checked back and saw Sun was up 2-0 then when I came back for good it was like 2-2. Overall, Sun/Henke was a pretty good match, very entertaining, some drama with a few calls (one of which completely got into Henke's head when she was serving at 3-4 in the second set and she completely lost focus), some Chinese fans saying crazy things in Chinese in the stands that a lot of us laughed at, and Sun looked REALLY good. She should be top 100, for sure, if she can control her power more often.

aww what a great report from Ludwig. glad he recognises Sun's beauty :D ;)
I knew she had the power and its true, she just needs to stop hitting errors a lot of the time. I'm surprised about her backhand DTL, i didn't think she had one, it was always one of her weaker shots :o

Good luck against Czink, you can do it Tian Tian :banana:

Also, because the rankings after this week are used for Roland Garros entry, Tiantian will get entry into quali at Roland Garros because she is going to be around 198ish. :banana:

She will move from 259 to around 198 with the points from a 2R showing here, plus qualies? I believe you, but that seems like a big jump.

I've never really checked out how that works, but going now and taking a look at points and rankings now for the first time, I see that the players are really stacked up together closely at that level in the rankings. For ex, between 225 and 265 (40 places) the players are only separated by 26 ranking points.

So if she loses to Azarenka she will come away with 50 ranking points, pushing her up to about 195, and if she wins her 2R match against Azarenka, she will come away with at least 75 ranking points. That would push her all the way up to about 168 ranking. :eek:

Correct me if any of that is wrong.

Take away for me is that a player can make a big rankings jump, if starting in the 200's, with just a couple wins in a MD.

In a way it's a good thing that someone in the 200's can jump back up quickly, very often we see talented players just fade down the list because of losses in the 1st round of 3 or 4 tournaments in a row, or those not able to make the MD or even QD cut. It's all a meritocracy at the end of the day and I hope TianTian takes this chance! And it's true, TianTian plays a lot better when in the singles of a tournament on her own! No distractions :p

only Zhang Shuai in Qualies

Zheng Jie, Tiantian Sun in ALT, Jie likely to get in, Sun not in top 250...in my lists.

I interpret it as TianTian is on the list to play but not likely to get in, and it appears as though the cut off for lists was done before Charleston, as Tian Tian is inside the top 200 as a result of her good play in America :D

Sun/Peng beat Domachowska/Rosolska easily, 6:3 6:2, including 3 aces, no doubt from TianTian :p
Gutted she lost so early to Cornet/Melo in Mixed Doubles, that is a shame, but home crowd support and in form Cornet would have been tough to contend with. Keep going in Doubles with Shuai :banana: :fiery:

I hope they crush Vika and Shahar.
BTW, I'm sad Tiantian couldn't complete a Grand Slam in Mixed this year :sad: It would've been quite a story. Poor them.

Very possible for TianTian to qualify, I hope she just holds it all together. She was the first of the current crop of Chinese players to get to R2 Wimby in 2004! I'm surprised she isn't playing any grass tournaments like Birmingham, not even doubles... Obviously she won't play Eastbourne or Rosmalen as there is overlap with Wimbledon qualification, but still... I hope she is not too rusty :scared:
Go TianTian :banana:

Whatever, it's even more frustrating to follow Tiantian's results than Shuai's and that's saying something.

The reason is probably that Tiantian only plays like 10 singles tournament in a year to start with, so when she sucks ass at all of them it's even more disappointing. :weirdo:

Tian Tian was coasting in the first set and then went into meltdown!?! I was tracking between her match and Junri Namigita's match as they were on courts #11 and #9.
I wished her luck on the way to the court and she was really friendly but she looked almost in tears as she went back to the clubhouse.:sad:

Aww TianTian :smash: :tears:
this is so upsetting, again she loses a three setter with several brainfarts. it's so sad to hear she was close to tears after the match, she knows she is better than this. i wished she would pick up points here, she is good on grass :( i guess i just have to wish her all the best for doubles... :tears: :scared:
