a titanic struggle worthy of the Gold Medal team play match, not the QF :eek:
Jie, I can't believe you lost this match :fiery: ... please give up your women's singles spot to Shuai Peng :devil:
up next is Na Li v. Iroda :scared: ... Na must win the match in order to keep China in the team competition :help: :tape:

Oh God... what's this Jie?! You should have won this easily...

Coach Jiang is an IDIOT
why he take out Peng from this tie and play Zheng :fiery: :tape:
Shuai would have won this match ... she can do everything Akgul can do, only better ... Jie is injured and was probably overpowered by Akgul
Jiang will be to blame if China is out of the team competition in this round

Thought Akgul would fold in this one once Zheng Jie got back into it. Still think the Chinese can win it but Uzbekistan and Chinese Taipei were always the dark horses in this team event.

Jie is afraid to play against player like Akgul,who is powerful and has good serve. :sad:
Why they let Jie play 1st rubber instead of Shuai??!! :fiery:

I said it before and I say it again
Coach Jiang probably had no idea who Akgul is and what sort of game she has. So he just substituted Jie thinking that she is better form than Shuai

but Shuai would have been a much better choice against Akgul than Jie :mad:

Coach Jiang needs to be fired :lol:

Didn't Jie need knee surgery from as early as Wimbledon? Playing these matches might put her in doubt for the AO :o

stupid stupid stupid decision for Chinese team :fiery:
Jie Zheng was injured for a long time and her comeback match at Zurich wasn't good either but they still let her play singles :rolleyes:

this confirms my theory, CTA hates Peng and they will do everything to prevent her playing a match :sad:

Not surprised at all.
Well done Akgul.

:eek: Wow, what an upset. Hopefully this is another step forward for Akgul. Things are looking up for her right now. I hope she can find some consistency and at least qualify for the Aussie MD. :worship:

Me too! But Agkul needs success now in her career more than Jie, so I am happy with the result too.

seriously? have you even seen peng play?

that's like saying myskina is superior to anyone in the top 30. :haha:

thanks, coach jiang. china probably would've won if peng had played this rubber.

Well done Akgul! It's a real shame to see China out so early, especially because everyone has been talking about how the Chinese women are making giant strides in tennis, this would have been a nice confirmation. But anyone mildly interested in tennis can still see that they are doing well as a country. Anyway I'd love to see Uzbekistan win this, GO UZBEKS!

I'll seem biased to you, but as a fan of both of them, what you say is not true. At best, you could say they are about even, but most would say it is the opposite of what you write.

Do you have some basis for writing that? Please enlighten us. :weirdo:

My take: let them make these stupid decisions now and learn from it. The sooner the better.

TOO MUCH MEDDLING; don't try to control and micromanage so much!

(AS long as they learn from it... if that means no change of tactics then they will be REALLY stupid.)

I've never seen the match against Clijsters but Peng has always looked slow, erratic, one-dimensionnal and fat (:tape: ) in all the other matches I've seen from her!

Zheng is very fast, has some very accurate strokes and seems to be an all-surface player! She's pretty underrated:rolleyes:

that's why I think Zheng is better than Peng and better than Li too IMO
Actually I rank them this way: Zheng>Li>Peng

silly biased chinese ppl. lol peng prob was happy that they lost to show how much they needed her. But li na is a bit eratic against lower players i think i remember her losing in canada but she is older i guess.

as for "Zheng is far superior to Peng...." You must be on serious crack. All zheng can do is move fast, scream, and maybe hit one good forehand. Yeah shes better than peng because of what her speed. errr no she sucks. she has no weapons. Shes only ranked higher than peng because she enters all those tier 3 tournaments when peng most of the time enters the higher tier tournaments. Peng can out hit zheng any day and no zheng is no where near as good as li na. But zheng is better than myskina though:angel:
