the Indonesian Tennis Federation thought that they should give the juniors the opportunity to play in Fed Cup!! what a crap.. Liza and Wukir were soooo betrayed by them!! I mean, they should have been AT LEAST, an exhibiton match at least, to show who are the better players to accompany Angie and Wynne *sigh*

However, she'll be up against much tougher opponents in Group 1 this year. What a great experience this will be for her. :D

Apr 15th, 2003, 08:14 PM
finally, i believe this is the year for this group
to be represented in the World Group......
Chinese is probably the strongest in recent yrs,
the TOP players from Taipei for sure,
not to mention Japan, Indonesia, Thailand and Uzbek
too bad Mi-Ra and Yoon Cheong are not here,

Zonal one, i pick Japan and China.....
Japan coz it's really strong,
China coz if you dont look carefully,
they'll upset you, very much,
Jie Zheng took out Widjaja last yr,
Indonesia has a double specialist,
and Widjaja who doesnt seem to be able to handle
pressure......so i dont pick 'em,
Thai and Uzbek might lose double to China in final tie

Hi Henri :wavey:

1) The arena is quite large I understand and I don't have a large zoom (I can take some shots in smaller stadiums like in Hochiminh City or the WTA at Pattaya). I am not certain if I'll be able to take photos :sad: .

2) I am not at home and I am not sure of the internet possibilities on-site :sad: .

I'll see what can be done though.

Apr 20th, 2003, 08:00 AM
I think i know the reason that Suzanna is playing captain. It is because that ANgie requires for his coach to be the captain in order for her to play, and Wynne doesn't want to lose Suzanna who is her coach as well. plus i guess Martina Widjaja (the Manager/Head of Indonesian Tennis Association) believes in Suzanna

From your first sentence, it seems that you put Indonesia as the red hot favorite! As Indonesian fan, I doubt about my national team as red hot favorite...Japan is truly the red hot favorite - they have Ai & Shinobu for singles and Ai can play dubs with Rika! It is very strong team! Next is China - though they don't have top 100s' players, they are very good in team competition! Indonesia has to work really hard to face other tough rivals such as Thailand, Uzbekistan, Korea (even without Cho & Jeon), Chinese Taipei and I am sure Indonesia can handle New Zealand, Malaysia, Hong Kong & Kazakhstan!

Angie is only for her 3rd time being in Fed Cup team! The 1st time, she played when Indonesia was in qualifying for world group and we lost to Austria! Wynne is more experienced but now Angie is having the burden as number one player in Fed Cup match. For doubles, Angie and Wynne have been practicing hard with our men's national players prior to this Tokyo's event. Last year, Angie lost to Jie Zheng in the same event in Guang Zhou. If Indonesia could go to the next round, it would be miracle! Anyhow, good luck INDONESIA!!! No accident that tomorrow is our national women's day to remember the birth of Kartini - the national heroine! Go, fight and win, Angie, Wynne, Sandy and Anna!!!

How far did Shuai Peng go this year?
It was Tong Ka Po, but apparently she retire, her mothered died a couple of years ago I think, and I think it pretty much ruined her plan to turn pro, I remeber she played in Aus Open doubles qualies in one year, so she definitely the best player in HK has ever produce ( her best win I think was over Jane Chi in some Mahwah challenger before losing to Janet Lee in the final )
