This is depressing to me. I hate when players get manipulated by the political reason and their carreers get inevitably derailed because of it. It's just sad. As much as chinese have up and coming talent , they'll never realise until they either defect or some miraculous changes happen in China.

I heard the actual games take place in October....so I'm not sure about the US Open commitments, but seeing as the qualies already took place I think the Chinese ladies should be able to player the summer hardcourt season :)

I think the Chinese girls will be back on the tour very soon. Zi Yan is playing the Modena event this week in Europe.

I expect the girls to be in Standford, San Diego at the latest

Well, let me explain it.

The National Games consists of two parts: indivadual and team. In March was the individual qualifying rounds. And During Wimbledon was the team qualifying rounds. And in October will be the individual and team final rounds.

Na Li is playing Toronto :) I can't believe the government is letting her play a Tier I.

they'll play in August, maybe San Diego first..
but that Tier I tournament will be very hard obviously...
i really hope them first to play in Cincinnati or Stanford..
but it seems impossible now

Why is it impossible? Zi Yan is playing this week in Modena

Na and Shuai's rankings are high enough to get into Stanford and San Diego Main Draw

I think they should play Cincy or Stanford too rather than Toronto or San Diego. Its been weird schduling throughout their whole career :(

Yeah it just sucks knowing that they don't really get to choose, but the government chooses for them...

I don't know if it's for real, but it certainly seems that they have certain restrictions...

I thought Peng had not appeared at Wimbledon because of her ankle injury?

I'm not sure if the government actually tells them what events to play. I think the Chinese girls have to get their events approved, but I'm not sure if it's a case of "You will play here." I know they're obligated to appear for any tour events in China (or challenger depending on their ranking) and Fed Cup for China, but that's it.

However, the Chinese government takes 65% of their prize money, flat out. They give them an apartment and free training in return, as well as a nice deal for retirement. Also, the Chinese girls are banned from getting their own endorsement contracts.

I'm surprised they are restricted so much. You'd think the way China deals in sports, they'd want their athletes competing at the highest level possible.

This doesn't make sense to me.

I thought it was more than 65%. I heard the commentators saying in last year's Wimbledon when they were talking about Jie Zheng and the rest of the Chinese players that they had to give back a considerable amount. I don't quite remember what the percentage was, but it was definitely more than 65%.
