I have to agree Michael Chang looks sooo OLD for 36 my goodness he's losing his hair poor guy. Amber could do so much better.

And she is 24. It isn't really that unusual for a 24 year old woman to marry a 36 year old guy actually. Chang has always stuck my as a bit old fashioned and dull but I'm sure he is a nice guy and they will probably be a very happy couple. Good luck to em. :yeah:

She was dating a Stanford water polo player until at least this past fall, so that's pretty quick for them to get together. Congrats for them, if this is true, but it's a little strange if you ask me.

I wonder what the statistics are in terms of female players dating their coaches. At least Amber Liu is of legal age. There has to be so many cases of coaches "dating" their underage players. The tour should look into this.

Michael Chang is unfortunately not aging well.
But this news seems to be really out of left field.
Does that mean he coaches Amber Liu at the moment?

I agree with Chris on this one

But 24 and 36 is just fine imo :shrug: (both are mature)

Yup. Totally agree. I think the problem some posters are having is looking at that picture, poor ol' Michael really does look like he is approaching 50 not 40 and Amber could easily pass for 18. In short Michael does look old enough to be her dad.

But the bottom line is regardless of what that photo tells us the actually difference in age isn't that big. And let's not be superficial. Lifelong relationships are about more than looks. Okay Amber is way dishier than her hubby to be but that doesn't mean they can't be very happily compatible.

Very surprising
Chang is so religious I thought he was going to marry a "good church" girl.
Even at had his Hall of Fame induction ceremony, he had so many reference to Jesus Christ, and the Lord, etc.. I think the audience felt a little uneasy

Anyway, good luck to both.

BTW, why so many thread have to start with Bombshell

I believe she was still with him at Indian Wells, too, which was March, only four months ago.

When did MC start coaching her?

Well, apart form the little age gap and the huge looks gap, I gotta say players going out with their coach alwsays made me really uneasy. :(

This place is so sad. Most of you barely know anything about both of them and you think you can decide who she should marry. Sick.

Chang really does look old. I've always wondered if it's inevitable that if you mature young - the youngest male Grand Slam Champion at 17 - that you age quickly too.

I'd like to think so as I've always looked young for my age.

I think the receding hairline is a lot of it. Anyone who will bald or start a receding hairline will seem older earlier than the others.

chang was coaching her in memphis this year, but it didnt seem that they were anymore than just a coach and player. big news to me. :-/

and plus, there are no facts, just speculation. he is her coach, so it would not be weird at all that she was at his induction. she was playing stanford this week, so they could have been training in r.i.
