She deserves this thread for sure...She has been impressive in 2002 and so far this year, she is wonderful...She has surpassed Mi-Ra Jeon in terms of achievement!!!:cool: :cool: :cool:

She is enjoying her recent climb to ranked 66...:) :D :cool:

In AO, she is absolutely a "dark horse"...She will beat Eva easily...She may make a surprise to beat Maggie in 2nd round then she can beat whoever in 3rd round and again, she will face Monica Seles in round of 16! She can do damage to Monica...That's all my wish to her!!! Yahoo...Cho!!!:) :D :cool: :bounce: :wavey: :bounce: :wavey:

I met her this morning in Melbourne Park :) She was practising with Angie and both of them have a very good game... I think they are the future of Asian tennis... Both can serve well, strong forehand and backhand, and good consistency.... I also saw a bit of Saori's match against Maria Salerni, and to be honest, her serve is still so weak/slow... Angie and Cho have definitely stronger serve....

I'm sure Cho will get a good result here in AO, at least pass the first round...

Go Cho :bounce: :bounce:

I'm an Indonesian, lokamaya :) As you can see in my flag :) I came to Melbourne 4 years ago to study and now I finished my study and currently working. I got Australian PR already, last March :)

Saori didn't practice but I saw her final round qualifying match against Maria Salerni. I hope she got a LL too :) More asian in the MD.

Hello Henry,

If you see Yoon-Jeong again, can you please ask her some news of her ankle, that she injured in Pattaya last year.

And send her my best regards ;) (just tell her the French guy she met with Mi-Ra in Pattaya. She should know. In case she does not remember :rolleyes: , tell her too that I usually take photos ;) ).

Thanks :) .

Go Yoon-Jeong in OZ 2003!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D She's made such a great start to the year. I first saw her vs Monica in US open 2002, when she was down 6-1 5-1 only to make Monica win it 6-3 in the final set. What a match, and performance by Yoon-Jeong.
I also hope Saori gets LL into main draw.
Also Good luck in OZ to:

Yeah, my family is still back in Indonesia. I'm alone here :sad: :sad: But I love living in Australia though, even without them around :) It's difficult to find a job everywhere now IMO, I'm just lucky to find a good professional job. Many of my friends are still struggling finding a job, and because of that, they choose to continue studying.

I started play tennis 6 years ago, and it's only for fun (not competition)... I'm an average player, not too bad, not to good, at least I can hit the ball :)

You started from 8 yrs old, must be very good now ;)

Hi Steve :wavey:

I'm pretty sure I'll meet her again... I am going to AO again on Day 3 and Day 4 (hopefully I can have two days off at work)... I'm pretty sure she will survive the first round in the single, otherwise she'll still play double. I'll ask your questions :)

From how she was practising, I think her ankle is alright now. Otherwise, she won't be in the Auckland final, but I'll ask her that and send your regards too, I'm sure she'll remember.

I will look for the WTA rule in this case when back home.

I will look for the WTA rule in this case when back home. The WTA rule allows for one day delay for Main Draw. I looked for qualifying, but it is very tough in this respect :sad: . A player is eligible to play the Qualifying of a Tier I to V only if she has been eliminated or has withdrawn consistent with these Rules from both the singles and doubles of the prior week’s Tournament.

. In the case of the same player potentially being on two Tournament schedules of play for the same day (i.e. singles or doubles Semi-finals of one Tournament and singles Qualifying of another Tournament), the player must have a reasonable chance of meeting the Qualifying deadline as outlined above in order to remain eligible for the Qualifying event. If at the time the schedule is released and the player is not reasonably able to meet the Qualifying schedule deadline, she will be withdrawn from the Qualifying event. No special consideration or postponement of matches will be made for weather conditions.

I saw that match. Cho played well up to 4-3 in the second set when she was serving. At this time, Maggie putting pressure by making her run from side to side and some good drop shots as well. I guess that make Cho really tired and lost her serve. Maggie held serve, and trailing 4-5, Cho just felt the pressure and didn't serve quite well. in the third set, she just totally fooled by Maggie, and I guess a bit tired as well. It was a hot day that day :(

Next opponents : MORIGAMI AKIKO JPN / OBATA SAORI JPN (Q) who beat the #3 seeds in round 1 :eek: :) .

Yoon-Jeon has no match arranged on Tuesday, so that she will probably have to play two matches again on Wednesday. What a bad scheduling :( .

I think Cho is currently Top 50 with this result... unless someone below her she'll still be there.

I know I eat, sleep and shit Lena... but I really thought Cho had a chance to win here, and I hated to see her lose. She proved to me before in her match against Seles at the US Open that she has a lot of fight... and she definitely showed that today.

Don't worry about Top 50... I think she's got a great chance of being Top 30 by the end of the year.

Yoon-Jeong has not entered any European red clay events up until and including Rome. :rolleyes:

I can understand if she doesn't like clay, but I'll be mad if she decides to play the 2 $50K events in Japan. :mad:

She would have made the maindraw for the European events as well. :rolleyes:

It would be a perfect time to get that chin surgery of hers during this break, but I doubt it. :o

Yoon-Jeong has not entered any European red clay events up until and including Rome. :rolleyes:That's really a shame. I still believe that a player who wants to be in the top 50 (or better) has to be able to play on any surface.

But given her stamina problems on hard court, I wonder what it would give on clay :rolleyes: . There's however no better way to improve in this field than to play more of these tenuous long matches.

It would be a perfect time to get that chin surgery of hers during this break, but I doubt it. :oI can only hope that this is the explanation. It is interesting to note that both Mi-Ra and Yoon-Jeong are taking some long breaks during the season :confused: .

I am not too happy with her schedule. She could have made it main draws if she had entered Warsaw and Berlin..... and she instead chose to play Rome qualifying :rolleyes:

She hates clay, but I believe it's better to practice damn hard to become good on it than play less on it.
