Yayuk's record at Wimby seems similar to Tammy's current one, except that Tammy managed to get to the 4th rd 5 years in a row, where Yayuk lost in the 1st rd on the 6th attempt.

Hopefully Tammy can go one step ahead just like Yayuk on the 7th attempt. ;)

UR correct indeed about Tammy...It is good to know that Yayuk has passed the torch to Tammy...and Tammy does it better...and now, Tammy may pass it to Angie? I don't know about that...Go, South East Asian players!!! :cool: :wavey:

First of all, FANTASTIC post! :D

I've always been impressed at how well the Asian players have done at Wimbledon particularly Yayuk, Kimiko and Tammy who all managed to beat reputable players like Brenda Schultz, Conchita Martinez, Mary Pierce and Amelie Mauresmo.

I'm hoping that Tammy can make the quarters some time soon. Maybe this year. :)
