Wow! :p It's been such a long time that I haven't really posted a thread for my beloved Yung-Jan for fear that I would have been considered a boaster or too nationalistic. :lol: But this time Yung-Jan is just too good.She proves her ability,and I feel guilty not to open up a thread for her as a number one fan of hers. :worship: So hope you don't mind. ;) Congratulations Yung-Jan. :inlove:

Youngest girl in the top 100!
:D

I am not so suprised though, she was always going to be a top 50 player imo. Obviously she is capable of breaking into the 30 at some stage, but I think she needs to work on some weapons now, coz the girls in the top 75 dont get any easier ... at all!

Next year, make your mark Yung Jan!

Now she'll get a chance of really testing herself at WTA tournaments. We all know she's damn good, but we'll see how good she really is next year when she's up there playing with the big guns.

Congrats to her and to you! It must be great seeing your fave taking such huge steps :yeah:

That's Hingis' Wimbly outfit, isn't it?

I saw a Chan at Cincinnati but the more I think about it, I'm pretty sure it was Chin-Wei Chan, not this girl Chin-Wei was impressive.

I'm starting to get a bit confused with the Chinese names, I'll have to admit.
1. More players coming out, so more to remember, including the Chinese and Taiwanese.
2. The two (or at least three) Chans.
3. The last name first, first name first options.

I always get confused between Yung-Jan Chan and Yan-Chong Chen :help:

:lol: Now it's even more confusing! :p

You know I said Chin-Wei Chan above, but now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure she is Chin-Wei Chen.

Then there is the issue of the hyphen. Some double names have it and some don't. :help:

The hyphen issue is that in Anglo culture people have a First name, and then a middle name which is subordinate.

In Chinese culture often people have 3-word names, where the first two words are equally important and have to be said together. I think they hyphen out of convenience, so they can conform to the idea of 'first name + surname'.

The way it works in the names of some people I know is that the first two words of the name are put together in a single word, so it gets around the problem.

I actually think this is something WTA did, because most people I know don't hyphen, and just put the names together.

Yes, I would like it better without the hyphen, just put together.

Why do the Chinese not have the double names for the most part, but the Taiwanese do? Or am I just imagining that?

I think it's just a coincidence in this case :p

Thinking about it more I don't think there is a standard way of expressing it. The first Emperor of China 'Qin Shi Huang' is usually spelt with three words, as well as tennis legend 'Sun Tian Tian' whereas 'Mao Zedong' uses the 'put together' method.

I see Tiantian almost all the time; rarely as two words.

Most people from China have a name with 2 Chinese words...as you can tell from 李娜 (Na Li) & 鄭潔 (Jie Zheng). But there are still a lot of people who have 3-Chinese-word names, like 孫甜甜 (Tian Tian Sun). On the contrary, most people from Taiwan have a name with 3 Chinese words, like 詹詠然 (Yung-jan Chan), 謝淑薇 (Su-wei Hsieh), and myself (Yu-lun Wang). But there are still many Taiwanese with 2-Chinese-word names, like 陳宜 (Yi Chen, WTA 389, 2-time 10K runner-up this year). I think it's a habbit or a cutural thing. Usually the last word of our English name (Li, Zheng, Sun, Chan, Hsieh....etc) is our last name, which actually should be the first word in Chinese speaking and writing.
