Her names always been known to me but I don't know much about Meilen Tu. I was suprised and also enjoyed reading the following article.

Miami: Mellen Tu makes reads to children in MiamiMarch 21, 2007

MIAMI - Following her first round victory, Sony Ericsson WTA Tour’s Meilen Tu, currently ranked 52nd in the world, read stories to children Wednesday afternoon at the Miami Children’s Museum as part of the “Wonderful Wednesday” program.

A Tarzana, California native who turned Pro in 1994, Tu has one career singles title and four career doubles titles. She may be most remembered though for upsetting Martina Hingis to win the 1994 US Open Junior championship, which helped earn Tu TENNIS Magazine’s 1994 Junior Female Player of the Year award.

The children spent time asking her questions about everything from where she has traveled to what other sports she enjoys. She also taught them how to say ‘hello’ and ‘good luck’ in Chinese.

Tu defeated Romina Oprandi 6-3, 6-3 in the first round match Wednesday morning and will next face 18th seed Vera Zvonareva.
