If you have seen Misumi Miyauchi, I bet you would think she's the most beautiful Asian player.
She retired years ago and is now doing occasional commentating.

I have a 3 way tie between active players :)

*Yuka Yoshida :D
*Mi-Ra Jeon :D
*Rika Hiraki :D

other notables are Prakusya, Tanasugarn, Miyagi, Saeki, Sugiyama, and Selyutina :)

as for retired players, my faves were Naoko Sawamatsu, Yayuk Basuki, and Patricia Hy-Boulais (even though she represented Canada later on in her career) :)

Well it depends which part of Russia they're from. Siberia is Asia. And I can pick Likhovtseva because she was born in Kazakhstan.

Always Tammy,
I didn't love her most only she represented for Thailand but she also get Tennis sport blooming in Thailand because about 10 years ago if somebody said about this sport in Thailand maybe just only not many groups knew it but after Tammy became well know for Asian and Wolrd class, she makes me fall in love with this sport heartly.

Trivia Q (and no cheating with search engines, atlases, etc.)! BESIDES Russia (alot of which is Asian, like Vladivostok, not just the other ex-Soviet Republics), name one other country that straddles both Europe and Asia.

Ace! (Istanbul is in BOTH continents, the rest of the country in Asia). (Now if only they can come up with a player on the level of Daniilidou, from arch-rival Greece...).

I guess you all know I like Tulyaganova most, not only amongst the asian players, but of all players.

I don`t like to compare people to each other, so no list from me. Most of the time I root for Tamarine T when she is playing (NOT against Tulyaganova :) ).
In a couple of years I hope to see more of the young brigade from Uzbekistan, Amanmuradova, Israilova and Arutynova playing in WTA tournaments :kiss: :bounce:

WOW, so sweet. She is from taiwan, right? Doesn't look like from Mainland or Hong Kong

xin
Apr 20th, 2003, 11:08 AM
Wait, I saw her play in Hong Kong once and in the L.A. championship. She is really a pleasure to watch. Lovely girl. I thought she is an Indonesian since her name is totally foreign to me. And her father and mother's name are also Indonesian. Who said she is Chinese? And she is about the same height as me and she looks so small on court. Poor me.

Wynne's Chinese but is Indonesian because she was born there and has lived there her entire live. A lot of Indonesian's are Chinese. They're just Muslims that's all.

Oh, yes, one of my teammate is also an Indonesian but she said she is half chinese. So I'm wondering why their family name is not chinese? Maybe the very next generation

My fave Asian player is retired. Does anyone else remember Kamiko Date? I loved watching her play. Kimiko's gotten mentioned alot on this board. And here's something interesting: Taiwan has alot more decently ranked players (inc. juniors) than China! (Of course South Korea is a "superpower" in womens' golf, so I guess when a small country makes a concerted effort @ a sport...). Right, Bram, Arne, Fleemke and co.? ;)

I suppose they might have a chinese name that only the family knows. They have Indonesian names because they're Muslims. I don't think Indonesia allows chinese names.

No... Wynne and Angie are not Muslims.. their race is Chinese, but their family has been living in Indonesia for generations...
Not all Indonesians are Muslims you know... ;)
