That's an excellent idea lin :D .

Here are some news / information :

1) you can find a photo of WENG Tzu Ting at the Hochiminh City ITF by clicking here : WENG Tzu Ting (http://photos.wtastarz.com/cgi-bin/index.pl?photo=2819)

2) Janet Lee reached the 2nd round (doubles) at Amelia Islands with Wynne Prakusya by beating Elena Dementieva / Janette Husarova. They lost unfortunately 2nd Round to Amanda Coetzer /Jessica Steck (3-7 in the tie break of the final set).

3) Everyone can visit Janet Lee website here : Janet Lee official website (http://www.janetleeonline.com) and leave her some messages of support :D .

Janet just posted her journal on her Fed Cup + Nasdaq 100 experience.

Be sure to have a look here :

March Journal (http://www.janetleeonline.com/On_Tour/ONC_2001Js/ONC_J2002_02/onc_j2002_02.html)

As it is extremely interesting. And if you post a little message on her board at the same time, she'll be very appreciative ;) .

Thanks for her :angel: .

Janet Lee (with Wynne Prakusya) won the R2 doubles match in Charleston against the #2 seeds Virginia Ruano Pascual/Paola Suarez (ESP/ARG) on the score of 64 46 76 (5).

Janet / Wynne are now in SF of this tier I event :D .

Their team Championships ranking will certainly improve after this tournament (they are currently #6 :) ).

Apr 18th, 2002, 04:09 AM
You all are making me homesick.

Good luck Taiwanese players.:D

Apr 18th, 2002, 07:50 AM

You are right lin : I am just anticipating a little bit the results :p .

Note : no one has posted any message on Janet website to encourage her to continue to publish her journal :sad:

Apr 21st, 2002, 03:26 PM
I have not heard of Yeu-Tzuoo for a while....
How's he going on and where is he playing now?:confused:

Rising Sun
Apr 21st, 2002, 04:30 PM
lin, do you know if there's any tension between Yen-Hsun and Yeu-Tzuoo? :confused:

The reason why I ask this is because I've noticed they never play doubles together, and Yen-Hsun didn't participate Davis Cup.

If there is, it's a pity because both are Taiwan's future in Men's Tennis. :sad:

Apr 21st, 2002, 05:35 PM
Yen-Hsun won the title 6-4 4-6 7-6 :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

danker, I don't know about it, but I don't think so. I think maybe because they are same type performance players,or maybe they competed the TOP1 in Taiwan every time,it would make them feel strange to play doubles with your competitor(same as Su-Wei and Chia-Jung,Clijsters and Henin,they seldom play doubles.)

Yen-Hsun didn't play Davis Cup because he was injured in February,and bacuse Yeu-Tzuoo didn't play Davis Cup in April, Yen-Hsun declined the chance to play because he was still a little injured and he thought even he played,there is still not a big chance to win.

novotnaquinton, I think you know BBS, their is a board about Yeu-Tzuoo in Moonstar BBS,you can see it.Yen-Hsun and Yeu-Tzuoo will still stay in Kunming to play China F2 next week.

Apr 21st, 2002, 07:23 PM
Yeu-Tzuoo and Danai Udomchoke won the doubles title as well :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Apr 28th, 2002, 04:49 AM
Yen-Hsun lost in doubles final :(

Olivia Lukaszewicz

Yung-Jan Chan is really too strong. This is her frist play in this junior qualifying and she didn't let her opponent win any game! :hearts: Very wondering why she is not in the Junior Fed Cup Qualifying players list?! (They are Wen-Hsin Hsu, Chen Yi, l-Hui Chang)
I find we never send our best players playing for our countries?!
:confused: We always have to wait till they are old enough to prove they have such talent?!

Hehe I didn't know it's Tibet's nation flag! I just wanted to change my avatar but I changed my nationality in the end?!

May 10th, 2002, 05:13 AM
Yeah girls good job!

Actually me too, I mean the falg, but I think it's a nice one so I keep it :)

May 10th, 2002, 02:28 PM
I guess it's because Yung-Jan didn't show her talent until this year :).

Yung-Jan lost to Yi in Jo Jo International Junior Championships this April,but I think she will play better than Yi in the future.

BTW,I don't like to use the Tibet's flag because it means our nationality :o ,but if you guys like to use it,that's fine :) .

May 10th, 2002, 02:49 PM
lin the Taiwan flag becomes so small again for a few minutes, lol!
though I'm not using our flag now, I would be extremely :fiery: and :mad: if there is no Taiwan flag for us to choose :)
anyway Taiwanese player ROCK!!!

May 23rd, 2002, 05:10 PM
I'm still here cause I really don't have the mood to study :p (and never will, lol!)

Believe me, it's not interesting at all, it's mainly something like:
How many legisiators should there be to impeach the President?
How long is the tenure of a grand justice?

Totally a mess!:fiery:

We don't have to study Taiwanese history in this course(err maybe it's because there are already to many things needed to be memorized), but in middle schools, students not only have to study Taiwanese history, but Chinese history as well :eek: I'm glad I'm no longer one of them!

Yeu-Tzuoo choked to lose his Qualifying 2nd round match 6-1 3-6 5-7

while he lead 5-2 and only two points to win :mad: :sad: :mad:

Did he try to do the same thing as Su-Wei :rolleyes: :p :sad:

well,I hope he at least can learn a lesson from this match :).

Good luck in Juniors now :D .

latest ranking
217 Lu, Yen-Hsun (TPE ) 161 +38 17
218 Wang, Yeu-Tzuoo (TPE ) 161 +4 19

Yen-Hsun played very well in China Satellites and reached Granby Challenger SF last week,and he still play USTA Seascape Challenger this week,so I think he can play US Open Qualifying.

About Yeu-Tzuoo,he is training in Spain and will train in USA later,hopefully he doesn't have any points to defend during his training,than he can play US Open Qualifying as well :) .

Janet Lee of Taipei took one-hour and ten-minutes to eliminate Lilia Osterloh of the United States, 6-3, 6-2 in the first round of qualifying at the 2002 Acura Classic.

On a sunny, breezy day on Stadium Court at the La Costa Resort and Spa, Lee used a strong serve and consistent baseline play to defeat Osterloh.

In the first set, Lee took a 5-3 lead when Osterloh double faulted on break point.

After Lee served out the first set, she broke Osterloh again to open the second and went on to win the match.

I served pretty well, Lee said after the match. She was maybe struggling just a little bit with her shots. The court is very slow.

Lee advances to the second round of qualifying, where she will play the winner of the Cara Black / Elena Tatarkova match.

. Osterloh was seeded fifth in the qualifying draw.
. Lee is ranked 141 in the Sanex WTA Tour rankings.
. Osterloh is ranked 86 in the world. And Janet was wearing her terrific sunglasses :cool: .

It's not reported in the local news, I think she will still play doubles with Wynne...

Nov 16th, 2002, 01:22 PM
some results about Taiwanese players last week and early this week.

I-Ting Wang was a finalist in $10K Manilla

Manila ($10,000 - Philippines) Nov 4 2002
1 I Wang(5) - O Lamangthong-Q 6-4 6-0
2 I Wang(5) - C Barr 6-4 6-1
QF I Wang(5) - M Inoue-Q 6-1 6-3
SF I Wang(5) - C Khoo(2) 6-4 6-2
F S Mirza - I Wang(5) 2-6 6-4 7-5(ever lead 6-2 4-0)

but she lost 1st round this week in $10K Manilla 2
Wilawan Choplang (THA) d. (7) I-Ting Wang (TPE), 6-3, 6-2

Chia-Jung Chuang lost Qualifying 2nd round in $25K Port Pirie last week

CHUANG Chia-Jung (TPE) d. MORGAN Marinet (AUS) 61 62
GRANDIN Natalie (RSA) d. CHUANG Chia-Jung (TPE) 60 61

poor Chia-Jung, Natalie is in great form right now. I hope she can do better this week, otherwise she made a wrong decision to play $25K in Australia rather than $10K in Manilla to defend her 2 titles.

Chin-Wei Chan lost 2nd round in $10K Manilla 2 this week

Chin-Wei Chan (TPE) d. (Q) Zsuzsana Babos (HUN) 1-6 6-4 6-4
Yan-Hua Dong (CHN) d. Chin-Wei Chan (TPE) 6-7(2) 6-1 6-4

Janet Lee lost 2nd round in $50K Eugene, Oregon

LEE, Janet (TPE) d. LL-Adriana Barna 6-2 7-6(5)
WC PERRY, Shenay (USA) d. LEE, Janet (TPE) 7:6 6:3

finally a win for Janet, but she will lose many points as she has SF points to defend. I hope she can make the Aus Open Qualifying.

Nov 21st, 2002, 11:03 AM
$25K Nuriootpa, AUS

First round

CHUANG Chia-Jung TPE d. LASTRA Gabriella USA 6-1 3-6 7-6
WANG I-Ting TPE d. CUPAC Dubravka AUS 6-0 6-2

2nd round
Chaung d. Wang 6-4 7-6

3rd round

Clijsters d. Chaung 6-3 6-0

poor Chia-Jung again, she had another bad draw in Aus, at least she upset #1 seed,but hopefully she can have good draw and play well in the remaining 2 $25K this year...

Chia-Jung beat Dittmann(#255) 6-3 1-6 6-4 :D

I say this is her best win in her pro career so far :D also she will be back around #450 after this win :D .

she will play McQuillan in the 2nd round, it's tough again but hope Chia-Jung can pull it out :). maybe she need to follow Su-Wei's strategy last year against Rachel ;)

Nov 28th, 2002, 12:51 AM
Congrats to Chia-jung :D

Although I hardly know her,.. it's an excellent job for a junior player.
Only player I know besides Su-wei among Taiwanese is Chan-chin Wei. How is she doing? I saw her playing doubles with Su-wei several times.... and she 's always smiling. :) She seems to be a nice girl. Good luck to her.

BTW, what was the Su-wei's tactic against Rachel last year? Moonballing, I guess. :confused:

Nov 28th, 2002, 07:03 AM
Chia-Jung beat Rachel 6-3 6-4 and into quarters :eek: :D :bounce:

It's really a big surprise as Chia-Jung won in straight sets, even Su-Wei only beat Rachel in 3 tight sets. Looks like this tournament become Chia-Jung's breakthrough tournament :)

She will rise up to #430 which will be her highest pro singles ranking :D

Chin-Wei is actually Su-Wei's good friend and her juniors doubles partner. Chin-Wei is a very good doubles players and her highest doubles juniors ranking is #6 :) . But she doesn't have sponsors so it's hard for her to play more tournaments abroad to gain experience :( .

I don't exactly know tactic against Rachel last year, but from the article I read Su-Wei is just more powerful but a bit lack of experience.


Nov 28th, 2002, 08:22 AM
Thanks for the reply.

Hopefully, Chin-Wei gets a decent sponsor soon.

And good luck to Chia-jung until the semi, cause there will be Mi-ra another side in the final if it happens. ;)

Iin, you are my reliable person I am sure...I have question on Janet...She is a US-born Taiwanese...does she have dual nationalities? She has 2 passports then? When did she officially represent Taiwan? Did she have any problem in terms of treatment from the national tennis federation? I mean, being American born? As we know, Noelle Huynh, junior player from Vietnam has problem...Thanks!

Janet will stay with Wynne for dbl in 2003! Good luck!:cool: :wavey:

Dec 12th, 2002, 12:30 PM
I'm not very reliable actually ;)

Janet officially represented Taiwan in 1995. I think she only have one nationality right now(not sure though).

Janet actually has a good relationship with our national tennis federation because she always plays national competitions and has good results. Also, Janet is a nice person so many people really like her(include me ;) ), but there are still some people don't like her because she is US-born. I can understand why they don't like her, bacause there have been too many similar examples like her to represent Taiwan recently. I don't care about it actually, I just wish they can help us to get some good results in the world.

Good luck Janet and Wynne in 2003 :) :wavey:

Dec 13th, 2002, 04:54 PM
Actually, the WTA did not recognise Janet as "Taiwanese" until the beginning of 1998. She did not play Fed Cup prior to that year either.

I'm pretty sure she has dual citizenship. And of course, she still lives in the US. Diamond Bar, California to be exact. ;)

Dec 14th, 2002, 01:39 AM
danker, I know she still live in the US. But she represented Taiwan to win 1995 Asian Championship and 1997 World University Games doubles with Shi-Ting Wang(I saw those results on the local news again when she won mixed doubles in Asian Games this October). So I think she did change to play for us in 1995.

Actually at first I thought she has two nationalities, but I'm confused you can play Fed Cup with two nationalities :confused: . Also, I remember you need some time for playing Fed Cup for another country if you change your nationality, so perhaps that's why she could not play Fed Cup prior to 1998?

Rising Sun
Dec 14th, 2002, 03:01 AM
The reason why Janet can play Fed Cup for 2 nationalities is because she had never represented USA in team competition prior to playing for Taiwan.

I'm not doubting that Janet played in the Asian Championships in 1995 and already had 2 nationalities, but like I said previously, the WTA did not recognise Janet as "Taiwanese" prior to 1998. She was listed as USA in all WTA tourneys up to that point.

Dec 14th, 2002, 04:07 AM
Janet must have been recognised as American because she was playing with her USTA tennis licence. She must have changed that later on. I know someone in the same case ;) .

I remember seeing somewhere too that Janet had a dual citizenship. I can't find again that article at the moment though.

I do think she may have better results than Su-Wei in the future, and I heard that she plays more aggressive than Su-Wei, but we will know the result in the future.

btw, Su-Wei actually finished at #182 on juniors ranking in 1999 at 13 yrs old.

no news about Su-Wei recently, if her injury is recovered now, I hope she will go to Australia to play Grade 1 event and Aus Open juniors.

Dec 19th, 2002, 08:21 AM
Yung-Jan entered the Australian Circuit tournaments :) hopefully she will have good draw there and make 2nd rd or 3rd rd :)

While Su-Wei didn't enter :( :sad:

Iin...can we really compare Hsieh & Yung Jan? Indeed, it is greater achievement by YJ at 13 she managed to be ranked 84...But, Hsieh was great as well at the same age! The situation is different, I think! Let us wait what they are progressing in the future...:cool: :cool: :cool:

The situation may be different, so I did say we will know it in the future ;)

Dec 19th, 2002, 10:15 AM
There has been conversation in comparing achievements' of Yayuk Basuki and Angie...Again, it is the same like btw Hsieh & YJC, again different situation...Some people may say, in the case of Yayuk, the era was different...but anyhow, people appreciated what she had done to tennis...Actually, before Yayuk, we had Lanny Kaligis who was able to give hard play against Evonne Goolagong Cawley from Australia...Lanny was the gold medalist for ladies singles in Asian Games 1974 in Teheran, Iran! Lanny was able to reach 2nd round of Wimbledon in 1970 and she also reached 3R in Aussie Open in 1972 or 1973...So, Lanny was pioneering Indonesian women's tennis in Asia and in the world as well...

As for Angie, indeed she is similar to YJC...In her young age, she was able to grab 3 junior GS titles and 2 senior titles...While Yayuk in her junior year was okay...So, Angie has the capacity to have more titles than Yayuk...Yayuk collected 6 titles until her retirement...

It is great to see YJC or Hsieh and more more players in Asia to move forward...How about Chia-Jung Chuang? She is progressing now...What is her strength? What is her weakness?

Well, we just elected new chairwoman for INDONESIA TENNIS FEDERATION...She is an old crack in tennis, MARTINA WIDJAJA, a tough business woman and has made many controversials in her over 10 years in our national tennis federation...She is rich indeed and now she is ready to dedicate her time in tennis since her children are taking care of her businesses...Critics say, she is 'iron hand' lady and with authoritarian style!!! She is promised to return to rebuilt the provinces' tennis potentials including clubs...and she is focusing on adding more tourneys for juniors especially...She has been sponsoring Wynne Prakusya as well...Wynne does practice at tennis courts owned by her...

So, it happens that Angie & Martina has same last name...they have no relation at all! But my wish is that by having 2 Widjajas in our tennis arena, Indonesia will regain the glory...definitely the men's side is in danger...We used to be ahead of Thailand...now, it is sad...BTW, we used to have male player, Benny Widjaja and he has moved to Taiwan and he changed his name into Chinese...I doubt if he still plays well now...

From my observation, actually Martina Widjaja does not like Angie's achievement up to now...because her player, Wynne, seems losing the popularity here...Indeed, there is rivalry btw the two...You know, last year Angie won vs Wynne in match exhibition...Sure, the media plays role in this rivalry...So, I hope, many unhealthy rivalries within our tennis arena will be diminishing...The victims after all are the players!!!:) :( :sad: :cool: :wavey: :wavey: :wavey:

Dec 19th, 2002, 10:37 AM
I understand also that Angelique parents are quite wealthy themselves (though not as much as Martina Widjaja who is I understand one of the 6 richest persons in Asia :eek: ), so that Martina W does not have as much "grip" on Angie as she has on other Indonesian players ;) . Could be another reason. But it does not have anything to do in the relationship between Angelique and Wynne, that looks good now (cf. their team work at the Asian Games in Pusan).

But I understand also that Indonesian tennis would not be what it is now (already with a good Asian team) without the financial assistance of Martina W :confused: .

And btw, I think there's around 13 years or so of difference between Yayuk and Angelique. A bit less in the case discussed above ;) .

Dec 19th, 2002, 10:38 AM
And since it is a Taiwanese thread : all the best to the Taiwanese players in 2003 :) .

Dec 19th, 2002, 10:59 AM
Chia-Jung Chuang has good serve and good baseline strokes, but perhaps lacks of variety. Mentality is the main problem for her, she and Su-Wei's H2H in our local events were tied before Su-Wei started to shine in the world, and even so, she still only lost some close matches to Su-Wei. She is actually unbeatable in Taiwan besides Su-Wei and Janet right now.

Chia-Jung really needs to some good wins to breakthrough, I hope her good performance in November will help her into right track :) .

I don't know who is Benny Widjaja, but if he was the one who moved to Taiwan few years ago, then I know him. That guy actually has ever been Su-Wei training parnter last year ;) . He played Davis Cup for us few years ago and was #1 in Taiwan, after that he retired though. But not so many people like him actually, I heard it's because of his attitude or so.

BTW, for anyone who is interested,there is a local championship which held this week, it's like our ending season championship, and the field is quite good. QF is playing today, there are two interesting match in girls side, Yung-Jan Chan plays top seed Chia-Jung Chuang, Yi Chen plays Chin-Wei Chan, and talented 14 yrs old Wen-Hsin Hsu is also back in form and in QF.

Also, all the best luck to Indonesian and Asian tennis ;) :wavey:

We have four national championships in a year actually, but this one is at the end of year. The field is better than the other three as well, Chia-Jung didn't play the first three championships. and of course it's also for men :) .

QF was played yesterday, the biggest upset actually happened, Yung-Jan Chan beat Chia-Jung Chuang 6-2 1-6 7-6(3) :eek:. It's really a surprise especially Yung-Jan just came back Taiwan from India this Monday, and Chia-Jung is unbeatable as I mentioned yesterday. Chin-Wei Chan beat Yi Chen again, and 14 yrs old Wen-Hsin Hsu lost too.

I just knew that Chia-Jung was sick yesterday, but still a good win for Yung-Jan :)

Today's SF results are out in our tennis Federation's website.

Chin-Wei Chan d. Yung-Jan Chan 6-0 6-0 :eek: :sad:
I-Ting Wang d. Hsiao-Han Chao 6-4 6-1 :)

I think Yung-Jan is just too exhausted today :sad:. but she still has her best performance here in our national championships :). and good for Chin-Wei, she didn't play Asian Closed Junior Tennis Championship but prepare for this, she only lost 4 games in three macthes. I hope she can win this now :) .

Yung-Jan has participated the first and second national championship this year. She didn't play the 3rd one because she was playing ITF juniors tourney abroad. She reached QF by beating Chin-Wei Chan 7-6 7-5 at the first one(so she got revenged today). At the 2nd one, she lost 14 yrs old Wen-Hsin Hsu in the 1st rd who seems always beat her in our local events ;).

The winner of national championship can get appropriately $3000 US dollars, I'm not sure about the other money prizes though...

BTW, I just check that actually Chia-Jung played the 1st national championship and she won :o .

I missed Wang's match yesterday :( as they change the court and I wasn't aware of that. By the time I was aware, it had finished :( Today, I didn't go, and Wang lost :sad: I really hope he won so I can see how is his game tomorrow :(

I found this interview of Janet Lee from the Asian Games last October : Relative veteran and women's tour player Janet Lee (燠雌皏), 25, is no stranger to success and has already picked up a bronze medal at this year's Asian Games in the team event.

Though born in the US, Lee said she had chosen to play for Taiwan for a variety of reasons, such as "going back to my roots."

She said she was prepared to play in any event, but has stepped aside to let Wang I-ting (卼瑊磌) and Hsieh Su-wei (珴抃瑄) compete in the women's singles.

As far as her own career is concerned, she said she was thinking of either stepping down a level on the women's tour -- to the challenger level -- or doing something else.

"I'm looking to get out of the game and might go to university and catch up on the education I missed because of tennis," Lee said.

"I've got to the stage now where I want to do something different, even if I don't know what it is yet," she said.

Having competed against the best in the game, Lee is clearly finding it hard to maintain her motivation as she slips in the women's tour rankings.

Despite success earlier this year in a minor tournament and her highly publicized doubles partnership with Anna Kournikova, she clearly feels it is time to move on.

"I've been married to tennis for a long time now. Relationships are hard to keep up on tour and maybe it's time to look to the future," she said.

Speaking of Taiwanese Juniors, Ting-Wen Wang won 3 straight tourneys in Bangladesh! (Grade 5, 3 & 3), and is now on her career high ranking of 50.

Why didn't she play the Australian Open? :rolleyes:

She'll be turning 18 later this year, I wonder if she's intending to turn pro? :confused:

Jan 26th, 2003, 02:03 PM
This is the same thing happening to Tai-Wei Liu in boys whoes ranking already inside top 20(due to some 18 yrs old are out of ranking though)but still playing those three low level events and won all of them. My thoughts are they thought it's not worthy to play Aus circuit. They may fear it's too expensive to play Aus Circuit and they may not get some wins there.

I can understand Ting-Wen's decision because she is not that good and seems doesn't have to too much potential...As far as I know, she plays moonballing types game ;) .

I heard her parents don't really want her to continue playing tennis after juniors half year ago :( , I hope their parents already changed their decision or reconsider it now...

As for Tai-Wei, I think he can try to play bigger events. I know he didn't win any matches at some biggest tournaments in Europe at the middle of last year by using his own money. But since some big names are gone, I really hope he can still try to play those big events this year, and he did beat the good American junior Brendan Evans at Thailand last October who reached QF at Aus Open...

well maybe Grace can tell us more about this issue ;) .

Jan 26th, 2003, 02:21 PM
I think Ting-wen really have to change her moonballing game!!or she won't have future career as pro player.

Speaking to moonballing, I am worried about Yung Jan's younger sister. She won the 10 year-old champonships last moth but used moonballing almost all match. even in the final against Su-wei's sister who was shoter 20 cm than she...

But the coach who teach Ting-wen and Yung Jan's sister, called the moonball as " finghting ball"

Rising Sun
Jan 26th, 2003, 03:07 PM
I read somewhere once that Ting-Wen plays a similar game to Justine Henin... but now it seems that was definitely not true! :o :eek:

I really would like to see her play some small pro tourneys, then she'll be able to see where she stands at the moment...

BTW, do you any of you know what's Hsueh-Li Hsu up to? I remember she used to play quite a lot of Asian tourneys a few years ago, but disappeared... :sad:

Jan 27th, 2003, 08:37 AM
oh well I think it's me who said Ting-Wen plays like Justine in this board :o . I can't find in Asian Assault though...sorry but it's just I saw from someone who attended the local event's reports in December 2001...I got the correction at the middle of last year and I saw her moonballing game reported on the news...

I think moonball can be fighting ball if you have good mind, but from what I heard about Ting-Wen on court, she seems not that mental strong...and I also hope Yung-Jan's younger sister can change her style...at least it seems Yung-Jan doesn't play moonballing game too much ;).

Grace, how about Tai-Wei, do you know anything about him?

Jan 27th, 2003, 12:58 PM
Hsueh-Li Hsu has retired, she is a school teacher now.;)

I called Tai-wei today, he told me that he missed the deadline of the Aus Open this year...but he think played small events also learned a lot becasue can play more rounds.:o

About the next tourment, he will play Taiwan's G3 tourment next month, after that, i have to ask his coach.sorry cannot reach him now.

I really hope Tai-Wei can play some big tournament after Taiwan Grade 3 tournament(he can win that Taiwan tournament easily I think, but maybe we can expect surprise ;) ). and actually from the middle the March there will be 4 consecutive Grade 1 events in Asia, and I remember on the CTTA website, they will give some high national ranking players sponsor to play there, so I think and hope he will be there. As I said before, I hope he can try.

About Hsueh-Li Hsu, I can't recognise her Chinese Name :confused:, can you post her Chinese name here thanks :).

About Yung-Jan's news, it just again mentions her idol is Venus Williams, and she is very happy to see Venus's match live.

Grace, thank you for Chin-Wei's schedule. :)
She should stop playing Juniors because she's already allowed to play a full WTA schedule. :(

BTW, does anybody know what happened to Hsiao-Han Chao? She hasn't played a pro tourney since June last year... :eek:

Lan-Lan Tai's disappeared as well... :sad:

Hsiao-Han Chao went to college from the news I read...and she will probably play Taiwanese local tournaments only in the future...

The same thing may happen to Ting-Wen Wang when she goes to the college this September which Grace told me on Sunday...

Lan-Lan Tai may be in the same situation...

I guess it's because they and their family don't think it's worthy playing overseas cos they aren't that good...

Chin-Wei playing ITF junior events in Taiwan is fine as she can play it as practising...Same for Tai-Wei Liu ;) .

Thanks for the info lin. :wavey:

Hsiao-Han made a good choice, because her results weren't very good. :o

If I were Ting-Wen, I would at least attempt to play pro tourneys for 1 year then make a decision. That's what Hsiao-Han did, and it did her some good.

Does Chin-Wei plan to play the pro tour full-time? :confused:

I think it's Ting-Wen's parents who don't really want her to play overseas again...I hope she can do well in Taiwan $10K this May, then her parents might change the decision...

As for Chin-Wei, considering from her schedule this year, I think she wants to play full-time first, then it will depend on her results...She is better than Ting-Wen and Hsiao-Han in juniors, recently she beat Chia-Jung in January in Taiwan...I hope she can do well on pro...

I don't understand why Ting-Wei plays so many junior tourneys overseas, and yet doesn't expect to play any pro events? She may as well stop playing overseas junior events... :rolleyes:

Good decision for Chin-Wei. I do hope she does well this year. :)

14 yrs old I-Hsuan HWANG just won ITF Grade 4-20th International Junior Championships of Sri Lanka :D :D

Congrats to her for first ITF juniors title :)

Janet and Wynne won Tier III Doha doubles title on Saturday :D :bounce:

Janet is presently #1 in the qualifying list of Cortec $50K (St Paul, Mn). I hope the list will clear up a little bit so that she can access directly the main draw :) .

Any hint as to who will be playing Fed Cup for Taiwan this year :confused: . Will Janet be participating, either in singles or in doubles?

Mar 5th, 2003, 10:40 AM
No one :confused: .

I think that Janet won't play Fed Cup this year, but I am not 100% sure :o .

Why do you think that Janet won't play Fed Cup this year? :confused: I hope she will play...maybe Grace can give us some information :).
