Su-Wei is playing Pattaya next and probably a Challenger in the States before the Orange Bowl in December.

Her rank is high enough for the Aus Open qualies. She'll probably play the Asian Championships in Dec too. Winner will get the Aus Open maindraw wildcard. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Who is considered the "favorite" to win the Asian Championship? Will players like Janet Lee, Saori Obata play there too?

Yu-lun Wang
Oct 30th, 2001, 07:57 AM
I think it's Su-Wei Hsieh or Widjaja.<br />After all, Su-wei Hsieh easily beat Janet Lee in straight sets at Taiwan's local championships.<br />Su-wei also beat Asagoe whose ranking is higher than Obata, and Widjaja beat Su-wei...

Hey Yu-lin! Is tennis a big sport in Taiwan? coz when I was there in this summer I didn't hear ANYTHING 'bout Taiwanese tennis players.... Taiwanse basketball was actually bigger... <img src="confused.gif" border="0"> <br />Where can I find facts bout Su-Wei?

Marri :<br />No, tennis is not big at all in Taiwan.<br />We used to have a tourment in Taipei, Taiwan, but it cancelled many years ago.<br />Tulyagonova was here this summer to play Fed cup, but nobody cared.<br />Su-wei is merely the second Taiwanese tennis player who cracked into the top 200 ever. (the first one is Shi-ting Wang), and not so many people know about Su-wei.<br />As a Taiwanese tennis fan, I feel quite sorry about it.

it is quite a shame Yu-Lun because there is some good tennis talent coming out of a country that is not interested in tennis! Su-Wei and Chia-Jung are most likely going to be top 50 players one day. Su-Wei probably even top 10 - 20 .... they are going to end up playting for a nation thats not interested in the sport. Its amazing that Su-Wei is so young and is beating girls that are much more physicly developed then her! <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> I am sure there will be more of an interest in the future <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <br />no need to push Su-Wei on - her talent is obvious and she will have success in the future <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I saw some match of Su-Wei when she played in Wismilak International, Nusa Dua Bali. I think she have a big talent to breaks Top-100 next year. <br />About the Asian Championships, Angie won't play there because she will celebrate her 17th birthday in the same week. <br />Both Angie and Su-Wei, they are the Asian rising star.

It's a pity that tennis isn't popular in Taiwan. <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />There are quite a few talents coming over there.

Yen-Hsun Lu and Yeu-Tzuoo Wang (both Top 5 juniors at different times) in the men's tour and in the women's tour, Su-Wei Hsieh, Chia-Jung Chuang, Chin-Wei Chan, Hsiao-Han Chao, etc.

I wish them all the best! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

-----

Toto, I'm quite surprised to hear that Angie won't be playing the Asian Championships. I read on the Australian Tennis Magazine that she will, but I guess that was before she realised it was on the same week as her birthday.

I guess she'll definitely play qualies then. I don't think she'll play any more tourneys this year. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

I heard it from my friend from Indonesia Tennis Association. Executive Director ATF Mr. Uthrapatty also ask same question? It seem Angie can't play there although she will get air ticket and accomodation. I will post the latest new about it if any.

Yu-lun Wang
Nov 7th, 2001, 04:58 PM
The biggest problem for Chia-jung Chuang, Chin-wei Chan, and Hsiao-han Chao is MONEY.<br />Su-wei is from a financially "not-that-well" family, and PAPA Hsieh had to BEG for money for Su-wei's traveling. Now Su-wei had finally had a sponsor, but still none for Chuang, Chan, and Chao. PAPA Hsieh used to share Su-wei's prize money with Chan for her traveling.<br />Now Chuang starts to win titles...I really hope she can find a sponsor as soon as possible. So can Chan and Chao. They're all talened girls.

Su-Wei's money problems should be going away by now though .... after semis at Wismilak, a 25k challenger win, and her success here in Pattaya.<br />I am not too worried as plenty of money will be going her way very soon judging by her results....<br />Shame about the other girls though ... if i was rich i swear i would sponsor one <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Money really seems to be the problem for most of the upcoming Asian girls. <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />I think Angie comes from a pretty well-off family so I don't think she's had much financial problems.

Yu-Lun, do you know what's happen to some of the slightly older Taiwanese women?

* Yu-An Chen used to be a pretty decent junior a few years ago, but hardly plays any pro events.<br />* Tzu-Ting Weng was ranked in the Top 300 a few years ago, but has dropped since, but she still plays in some of the Asian events.<br />* I-Ting Wang plays regular on the Asian circuit, but her results haven't been fantastic.<br />* Lan-Lan Tai has been playing Asian events lately without any success. Is she any good?

BTW, do you know what's happened to Hsueh-Li Hsu? I remember she used to play the Asian circuit regularly a few years ago, but disappeared in 1999. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Yu-lun Wang
Nov 8th, 2001, 01:47 PM
danker :<br />Here's some information of these players you mentioned above.<br />FAR AS I KNOW :<br />Yu-An Chen - the last time I heard about her was that she ran into a motorcycle accident and injured herself. It was about half an year ago.<br />Tzu-Ting Weng - Actually she was in Manilla playing tourments along with Chuang, Chan, and Chao, and got quite impressive results. I was quite surprised that she was on tour again. I though she had already given up.We once held quite high expectations on Weng, hoping she could be another Shi-ting Wang, but obviously she didn't quite reach that level.<br />I-Ting Wang, Lan-Lan Tai, and Hsueh-Li Hsu never really won fans' attention...After Shi-ting Wang, we invited Janet Lee, and now it's Su-wei Hsieh and Chia-jung Chuang's era. Wang,Tai, and Hsu could only make some news in our local events.

I just saw some photos of Su-Wei on the Volvo Open message thread -

Su-Wei's so petite!!! Her lithe build reminds me of Monica Seles's build when Seles first came into the tour at 15 years as well.

After seeing Seles play as a 16 year old at Roland Garros - i certainly can imagine Su-Wei's style of play!!!

And from the report from Steveg - it seems like Su-Wei's a male version of Melanie Molitor - looks like he can help his daughter in terms of strategy/mental strength and family support.

Both Janet Lee and Chia-jung Chuang missed our local championships. Janet was playing challenger tourment in the US. About Chia-jung, nobody seemed to know why she was absent.

Su-wei def. Hsiao-han Chao in singles final <br />7-6(8-6) , 6-2<br />sorry the previous score that I posted was wrong.<br />I was quite impressed that the score was this close.

Su-wei also won the doubles :<br />Su-wei/Chin-wei Chan def. Ya-fan Tsai/Chin-li Chen<br />7-6(7-2),6-2

Chia-zeh Liu def. Chi-ping Wang 6-4 6-3 to win the men's crown.

Hsiao-Han is 17 years old.<br />She's played quite a few Asian satellites this year but with pretty ordinary results.<br />I would say that she's a level lower than Chia-Jung in terms of results. I wouldn't have a clue how she compares with Chin-Wei though.

BTW, I heard Chia-Jung was going to take 2 weeks off before heading to India next week.

Most probably the runner-up. Just like for winners of IFT tourneys who get a WC for WTA tourneys. If they do not want it / do not need it, then the runner-up gets it <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> .

For instance, if Su Wei reaches the final against Wynne <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> , she'll get a wild card no matter what. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Here's the question...Why does Prakusya still attend this tourment since she can directly go into the AO main draw ?? Because of the prize money or something ??

Steveg
Dec 19th, 2001, 08:20 AM
Yu Lun, I believe there are several possibilities why she attends :

1) It is a good training before the new season (she won't attend tourneys during new year on the Goald Coast).

2) it is a team event (players are entered by country) and Wynne usually is always here for her country.

I do not believe it is for the prize money because the prizes are so small ($60,000 for 5 events. This is on average less than a $25,000 ITF tourney). Unless she got a good appearance fee, which I do not know <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> .

However, in August last year, she played Fed Cup for her country i/o attending some very important events in the States. She also was present at the Sea Games after the US Open while she could have played some other important WTA tourneys (Hawai, Japan) for her career. So I do not think that money matters <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> .

OK I have to admit that I am " a little bit " of unpleasant that Prakusya attended this tourment with her top 100 ranking, because she might ruin some other young players' (OK I admit I mean Su-wei) chance to get the AO wild card.<br />Don't get me wrong , I love Prakusya. She is Janet Lee's doubles partner. I am pround of this girl and happy for her good results. But, I just don't see why she should attend this tourment...<br />Now I can see she is really proud to play for her country.<br />Anyway, just have fun and give your best for all these girls !!<br /> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

danker also could reply but he is on holidays.

<br />BTW The Pea, I have been looking for some information regarding the OZ Open WC story. The answer was in front of my eyes on the official website :

[quote] If the winner of the Championships already has a direct entry into the Australian Open, then the wildcard will go to the best-placed finisher, i.e. runner-up, semi-finalist, etc. Assuming that both finalists are already in the main draw, then the wildcard spot will be awarded to the best-ranked semi-finalist.

A couple of the local newspapers finally put out an AFP report on the event, mainly on Su-Wei beating Obata.

Su-Wei led 4-0 in the second set and her concentration wandered off a little bit.

The report says she's targetting a spot in the Top 50 next year.

[quote] As I'm only 15, the WTA restricted my tournaments in a year to right this year, but when i am 16 next month, I will be able to compete in 10 tournaments, which does not include the four Grand Slam events <hr></blockquote>

But danker explained that if she gets a Wild Card for the Oz Open, then this tournament would be accounted for as one of the 10 tourneys, which would leave her with 9 tournaments + The Oz Open + the 3 remaining Grand Slams.

If I understood correctly.

No Pea .... Challengers are counted.

getting to 160ish is the easy part.... now its going to be long haul up pointswise.

Qualies would have been better for Su-Wei , could have made 40 from qualifying plus she would still have an extra tourn to play.

Serra Zanetti is a tough opponent. She is very experienced and usually does well in qualies. She nearly beat Sandrine Testud last year during the Fed Cup event!!!

It will be an interesting challenge for Su Wei :) .

Besides, I think Serra Zanetti is very good at slowing down the game. All her matches always last quite long, whether on clay or on grass (she also had long matches at Wimbledon).

So Su Wei has a very fast game and takes the ball early while Serra Zanetti takes all her time (in the game and between the points).

I hope Su Wei will be able to keep her concentration (not like in Pattaya against de Los Rios where she had been disrupted by the medical time out). If she can keep it together and maintain a fast pace during the points like she can do it, then I think she can win this match.

She also does not do too many unforced errors usually, which will certainly be a key issue in this match.

Good luck to her :) .

Steveg
Jan 10th, 2002, 01:19 PM
Ooops,

it's Antonella Serra Zanetti (#181) and not Adrianna Serra Zanetti (#82) who is in the main draw. I do not know Antonella.

Steveg
Jan 11th, 2002, 07:40 PM
Australian Open... Junior??? She is only... 15 (or is it 16 this year ;) ).

Basically, Su Wei made more double faults and less winners in the first set (match stats). The second set was quite close.

During the match, it appears Serra Zanetti went more often to the net than Su Wei. Could have been the key...??

This + the serve. The winning % of Su Wei on her first serve is extremely low : only 39% overall (45% and 32%)!!! against 50% of Serra Zanetti. And more % of 1st serves for Serra Zanetti, in particular in the second set. Since the 2nd set was quite close, this is certainly what made the difference in this set.

I am not sure, but I think it's her first time playing LNY overseas.
Last year she won the Wellington championship,and the ranking point will be dropped off next week,so she have to play LNY overseas.
It is sad for her that all of the taiwanese player except Su-Wei(Janet Lee I am not sure) will spend their LNY with their family.

I don't think she will play Nasdaq, either.

Because she can play only 10 tournaments this year.

I think she will play Shanghai, Bali, Tokyo(AIG Japen Open), Surabaya, Pattaya after US open(because these are all Asian tournaments), so since she have already played 2 tournaments, it seems that she can play at most 3 tournaments this year:(.

I think it's wise of she to use these 3 tournaments to prepare RG, Wimbledon, and US open.

But after all, this is just my own opinion.

Thanks for your info lin, about Su Wei anticipated tourneys and the weather in Taipei ;) .

Regarding tourneys, I think Su Wei should skip Pattaya this year (though I'll do my best to go back there and would love to see her play again :D ) and play instead a higher tiered tournament (II or III) as she has quite some points to defend there and she would need to reach at least the SF not to lose them.

It is a bit early of a preparation for Roland Garros, which is 7 weeks later. If she goes to Budapest, I wonder what she will do the 7 remaining weeks :confused: . There are of course some possible tournaments to play until then (could be also that there are Junior tournaments).

Su-Wei is also commited to Porto and Estoril the previous 2 weeks to Budapest.

If she plays these 3, it means she has only 5 tourneys left for the remainder of the year. I strongly recommend that she doesn't play these tourneys. I know she loves clay, but her form at the moment questionable.

Hi Boodie:wavey:

I think she should play higher level tourney,but she is only 16,she can only play 14 tourneys(including Grand Slams).so playing some junior tourneys is necessary.Many Win in junior tourneys not only will help her keep what she play in good form but also will gain confidence in the coming professional tourneys.

Su-Wei will move to Spain and train in the tennis school which is introduced by ASV.She,her father,her sister and her brother will be there on May 20 and stay there for 3 months,but she will still play WTA tourneys and Grand Salms :) .

Good luck to Su-Wei :)

What an excellent idea. Even if the clay season will be nearly over by that time, it will give her some good practice before Roland Garros :) .

Do you know what tennis camp it is, Lin?

Great news for Su-wei & Arantxa. :D
Maybe Arantxa had impression on Su-wei late last year in an Asina WTA event. I've thought Su-wei need decent coaching other than her father. It's only 3 month,...but it will do good for her.

Good luck to Su-wei and hope her little sister also has fun in Spain.

Well, it just shows the Chinese report is very ignorant. Players like Janet and Su-wei have no reason to play in tournaments like that level. What a blowfish the reporter is.

Steveg,so you met them in Angie's match,you're so lucky ;) .

But I'm surprised that you can talk to them as you only met them once, maybe it's because you're not a normal tennis fan so that let them remember you ;) .

BTW,do you know who will play junior doubles with her :confused: It seems like Chin-Wei won't play :confused:

The latest schedule now changes because Su-Wei's father is sick I guess :sad:,and her father came back to Taiwan last Friday,hopefully he will get well soon :).

But Su-Wei has a temporary American coach who took her to Italy to train on grass :D.

And no personal information at all. She does not seem to be very used to media, is she?

Plays n/a : they don't even know that she plays... tennis :p .

Aceman does not have commitments list. For WTA events, M. Blue site used to be good but I can't connect anymore :( . Here's the link anyway : http://www.eatel.net/~mblue/tenindex.htm , It would be great if Aceman could add commitments lists for WTA events in his site :wavey: .

Otherwise, there's Tennis Corner now but mostly for Main Draw.

For ITF, you have the sites of the USPTA and European Tennis Federation. For Asia, there is Luke ;) .

well,Steveg,I can't connect M. Blue site for a long time either :(

Su-Wei said her next tourneys will be US Open and Hawaii,but she's not sure she will play US Open Juniors or not,because she said she will be very tired ;) .However,I think her Dad will let her play :o . And she also told us many secrets ;) .

BTW,Steveg,I also asked her about the person who talked to her and her father during Angie's match at RG ;).It seems like there were many secrets because she can't tell me what you guys talked about ;). And she was very surprised why I know this thing ;).

Steveg,it just suddenly occured me that you talked to them at RG,at that moment,I was very curious :p.

Su-Wei won't play US Open and Hawaii now because there is a big problem between she and her father,she hasn't gone back home and met her father since Wimbledon. If the kind of relationship continues,she won't play Asian Games as well .*sign*

Many people now is trying to settle this problem.

Dont worry, they will be back eventually...........
It will just take some time.........
Maybe w/o her dad there,
she wont have that much of pressure........
i believe her dad knows tennis to her is really important,
and now with important events coming up,
he has to be careful about treating her..............
