For sure I will.
I've been supporting her fully since she turned pro June last year.

If you looked at the commitments I've posted carefully, you would have noticed that she's also commited for the $25K event in Shanghai the same week at Charlottesville. I'll know next week to which tourney she decided to play.

BTW, what do you know of her? :confused:
I know that she was a Top 10 player in the NCAA, and was also a pretty good player before she went to attend College at the States.

King Aaron

Welcome...

Chin Bee is so far a class above the others.. she dumped Chen Yee in straight sets 6-2, 6-2 :sad:

Tan Lyn Yin will be her opponent in the final. She's the national number 2 ! But I still think Chin Bee would win easily...

In Juniors... we have a little Williams sisters thing going on ;) They're obviously sisters and their name is Nurfarhana and Nurzafira Taufik !! They mowed down the competitoin in juniors so far..!! :D They're gonna meet in the final :D

Unfortunately, they didn't say anything about prize money :(

Thanx..:D

Chin Bee won !! :D She took out Lynn-Yin in straight sets, either 6-3, 6-2 or 6-2, 6-0. The local papers gave different results..

Nurzafira won easily 6-2, 6-1.. they went on and claim the doubles title !! :D

Let's hope she brings her form to the pro tourneys now. ;)

I wish she had played some tourneys between her last one and the next one, as she had quite a bit to defend. She seemed quite close to breaking the Top 500 too. :(
I also wish she had decided to play in Korea instead of China.

King Aaron
Jul 9th, 2002, 09:12 AM
I was wondering the same thing.. :(
Hope she makes her decision worthwhle with a great run :D

Oh yeah, on juniors... I just found out that Norzafira is ranked 728 in junior tour :D.. there's another Junior, her name is Lindsay Woon and she's ranked 854..:D

It would have been good for Chin-Bee to play there to stay match tough. :(

Anyway, she'll be participating in the 2 Indian $10K events at Mysore and Hyderabad starting on 9 September. :D

It is out of topic but how come Chan Chin-Wei is there. She was at the qualifyings of Pattaya, which is the same week as the Manila 1 :confused: .

Here is the WTA rules book :

g. Playing Two Singles Tournaments in One Week

A player is not allowed to compete in singles in two (2) Tournaments held in one week and will be withdrawn from the second Tournament by the appropriate entry authority (i.e., a player may not play the Qualifying of a Tour Tournament, lose, and then play the Main Draw of an ITF Women’s Circuit Tournament in the same week). If a player does play two (2) singles Tournaments in one (1) week, upon the first occurrence the player will receive the lesser of the Ranking Points earned from the two (2) Tournaments. Upon the second and subsequent occurrences, the player will not be awarded any Ranking Points and she will be subject to a fine.

There is therefore no interest for her to do so :confused: .

Chin Bee eyes first pro title after string of good results
By NIUH JIT ENG

PETALING JAYA: A string of encouraging results on the ITF circuit over the past three months have raised the hope of national number one women’s tennis player Khoo Chin Bee to win her first professional singles title next year.

Despite making a slow start to the year, the 25-year-old Chin Bee got her act together to reach five singles semi-finals since August and she won one doubles title along the way.

“I guess I was in a transition period from playing college tennis to professional tennis at the beginning of the year,” said Chin Bee, an all-American college player who graduated from the University of Arkansas last year.

“I also had to get used to the training programme from NSC (National Sports Council), the travelling and overcome my lack of match fitness.

“But I’m playing a lot more now and getting better and I want to win my first singles title outside of Malaysia next year ? that’s my aim.”

Chin Bee anchored Malaysia to win promotion to Group One of the Federation Cup in March and then took a break to get married in July.

She returned to the circuit a month later and made the doubles final in a satellite tournament in Thailand. She went one better in Hyderabad in September, winning the doubles title, partnering Thailand’s Wilawan Choptang. In both the tournaments, she reached the singles semi-final.

She followed up with semi-final appearances in the singles and mixed doubles of the Asian Championships in Uzbekistan in October before two more last four outings in both the singles and doubles in two competitions in the Philippines this month.

Chin Bee has competed in 14 tournaments thus far this year and she said that she needed to compete in at least 20 meets next year to improve on her rankings.

“A player’s ranking is determined by the points collected from their best 17 tournaments in a year. Depending on the funds available, I hope to take part in at least 20 tournaments next year,” said Chin Bee.

She will leave for India next Thursday to compete in a US$25,000 challenger event in Mumbai before finishing the season with another challenger tournament in Nonthaburi, Thailand, on Dec 2.

Playing in the WTA circuit is what Chin Bee hopes to achieve eventually.

“My rankings now is around 530 but if I can reach the top 400, I can start playing in the qualifying of tier-five (US$110,000) WTA events around Asia. And if I reach the top 300, I can begin competing in the US and Europe,” said Chin Bee, who started the year among the top 800.

“But first I have to start winning the bigger (ITF) tournaments, the Challenger events, which I hope to play more in next year.”

Young stars coming to town
By NIUH JIT ENG

http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2003/1/1/sports/njtens&sec=sports

KUALA LUMPUR: The future of world tennis will converge on Malaysia for the first time with a Group One ITF International Junior Championships at the National Tennis Centre in Jalan Duta from March 16-23.

The Lawn Tennis Association of Malaysia’s (LTAM) secretary, Musaladin Dahlan, said that the Under-18 meet, the highest level of junior tennis, would see players from Asia, Europe and America who were among the top 200 in the world.

“The ITF have recognised Malaysia’s effort in promoting the sport, especially among the youngsters,” said Musaladin when announcing the first leg of the SportExcel-Milo-NSC-LTAM junior circuit at the National Tennis Centre yesterday.

“And hosting this tournament will give us the opportunity to see the world’s future tennis stars in action in Malaysia.”

This year’s national junior circuit will have five rounds, one more than previously. The three-day first leg tournament begins tomorrow at the National Tennis Centre.

There will be five age-groups – Under-10, 12,14,16 and 18 – contested in each round with the winners receiving 25 points. The runners-up get 15 points, the semi-finalists get eight and the quarter-finalists get four points.

The top 16 in the standings at the end of the final round qualify for the Masters Grand Finals, which will be held at the same venue from Aug 8-10.

Besides the Group One meet, Musaladin said that Malaysia would also host three other ITF junior tournaments for Groups Three and Four in Sarawak (two competitions) and Kuala Lumpur for the lower ranked players.

He added that organising these tournaments was part of the LTAM's efforts in nurturing young local talent.

“With our juniors taking part in these tournaments, it will give us an indication of what the future will be for Malaysian tennis,” said Musaladin.

“We also hope with these efforts, young players like Dannio Yahya and Adam Jaya (both 17-years-olds), who have already represented Malaysia in the Davis Cup, can make an impact at the Asian level soon and perhaps further if possible.”

He also said that the LTAM with the help of SportExcel might provide grants for those who showed promise to train and compete overseas after the Grand Finals.

Meanwhile, the executive director of SportExcel, Teng Mui Ngee, said that one of their 22 charter-members had withdrawn their RM15,000-a-year sponsorship of the junior circuit but added that it had not adversely affected the running of the circuit.

“Despite the pullout, we are glad that Measat, the Astro satellite channel providers, have joined SportExcel to help us continue running the circuit without much changes,” said Mui Ngee.

“However, we hope more companies would come forward and lend a hand for the benefit of the nation's junior athletes.”

Thanks for the news, Aaron.

However, I think this is suited more for the Junior forum, rather than this thread as it has nothing to do with Chin-Bee. :)

Speaking of Chin-Bee, I wonder where she'll be playing next...
I'd say probably the Indian satellites starting early February, or maybe Qatar Challenger the week before that.

I know it has nothing to do with Chin Bee. However, I don't think may people will care if it's in the Junior forum. I'll put it there later.

I don't know where or when but the Chinese New Year festivals are on Feb. 1st and 2nd. I don't know if she'll be playing then.

Rising Sun

Chin-Bee has committed to 2 tourneys so far in 2003:

27 Jan - 02 Feb : $10K Wellington, NZL
03 Feb - 09 Feb : $25K Doha, QAT

Of course, this is subject to change. I'll post the final lists in the Challenger forum when they're available to me.

Looks like I was wrong about the Chinese New Year thing.

Rising Sun
Jan 15th, 2003, 01:50 PM
No probs Aaron. :)

Chin-Bee's decision to play during Chinese New Year, proves that she really wants to go for it this year. I'd love to see her in the Top 400 at least by the end of the year. :D

Steveg
Jan 15th, 2003, 03:27 PM
I dont' know besides if Chin-Bee is extremely traditional ;) ( :wavey: at Chin-Bee if she reads this :p ). Good thing for Aaron anyway if she decides to play during the lunar new year (I don't call it Chinese, because it is celebrated in non-Chinese countries too :) ).

King Aaron
Jan 16th, 2003, 02:12 PM
:wavey: Danker and Steve!

Lunar New Year it is. ;)

I would really love to see her in top 400 as well. That would be great. But I think she needs to be based somewhere else. There's no competition at all locally. :(

Rising Sun
Jan 16th, 2003, 03:47 PM
In the article posted earlier, Chin-Bee mentioned if "funds" were available, she'd like to travel more to play more tournaments. I really hope she receives some. :)

When Chin-Bee was based in the States, she got some good competition against the best Collegiate players. It must have been a huge change for her to return home and go up against local players who've had practically no "foreign" experience. :eek:

Rising Sun
Jan 16th, 2003, 03:49 PM
BTW, I really think Chin-Bee can make the Top 400 this year. She'll have to up her performances in the bigger events such as $25K+ and take advantage of WCs given to her in these events though. Winning just 1 round would give her 3.5 points which will boost her ranking by heaps. :)

King Aaron
Jan 17th, 2003, 01:49 PM
Exactly Danker. A win, just one win in the 25ks would do her a world of good. Confidents and rankings wise. :)

It's time for the LTAM to do something. They have been doing nothing. :(

Chinn Bee's desicion is a little weird. After all she graduated in USA. Why not stay there?

Steveg
Jan 17th, 2003, 02:11 PM

I think she has an Indian-Malaysian coach at the moment, but I wonder if that's him? :confused:

Steveg

Hello Luke, I have not met her husband, but I have met her coach ;) . A former professional player I understood (used to play Davis cup for Malaysia if not mistaken). Sorry I can't remember his name :confused: . Very nice chap though :D .

King Aaron

Is it V. Selvam? Or is it the other one? Can't remember that guys name.

Latest news. the National Sports Council will not be funding the LTAM. They will have to find they're own funds to start they're programs and training for the national players. :rolleyes: And they expect Malaysia to be like Indonesai and Thailand.

Aaron, in ITF events, do you mean pro Satellite events? :confused:

If so, I don't think it'll be too difficult to attain those tourneys as there are already ITF Junior events there.

It would be very beneficial for Chin-Bee and Malaysian Tennis in general if they could re-introduce pro tourneys in Malaysia again. :)
