Wow...the players from China go from hard courts in Vietnam to red clay in Italy over the space of one week.

Best of luck to:
Nannan, Alexandra, Zi, Jie, Anais, Tiantian, Margalita, Sofia

Yep, and Chinese players are even more impressive if you know that they left Vietnam Monday morning to go to... China first and from China catch a plane on Tuesday morning to go to Italy :eek: .

They arrived Italy Tuesday (end of the morning I suppose). Luckily, I think they are not scheduled to play on Tuesday but Wednesday only.

I am not certain they practiced on Tuesday when they arrived :rolleyes: .

You will have noticed that LI Ting is not playing singles (she arrived obviously too late for the qualies).

She will however be playing doubles with LI Na :eek: . I would be surprised not too see two Chinese teams in doubles final this week :angel: .

:eek: at Chinese players - the Dokic's and Seles's of the Challenger circuit

Thanks for the results franzit :D . And you happened to post the results before Aceman :eek: (Alain : :p ).

Zi : :sad: . I expected a tough match but was hoping for a victory. I guess the jet-lag was an obstacle too much against a tough opponent.

Well done to Nan Nan and Jie :) . Tian Tian was not playing this Tuesday :confused: .

Thanks for the results franzit. The Italian newspapers seem to have some troubles with Chinese names :o .

In doubles, first team should read YAN / ZHENG (for YAN Zi / ZHENG Jie) and second team LI / LI (for LI Na / LI Ting).

In singles, the Chinese name (against Kravets) should read LIU (for LIU Nan Nan).

It will be a 100% Chinese doubles final. And all the best to Nan Nan for her coming SF match.

Anais lost too :(

go Sofia :)

SAB - 20/04/2002 E’ la settimana giusta per Laura Dell’Angelo che si è qualificata per la finale del Women’s Tour del TC Cagliari (ITF, $10.000, terra). La 20enne italiana nata a Monaco di Baviera, dopo aver battuto la spagnola Figuerola e la cinese Zheng, si è ripetuta nei quarti contro la greca Zachariadou (63 63) ed oggi in semifinale contro la cinese Liu (63 46 63), prima testa di serie del tabellone. La Dell’Angelo, n. 5 del seeding, cercherà domani la terza vittoria della carriera per tornare a un successo che le manca dal 1999 quando vinse ad Orbetello a un anno di distanza dalla sua prima affermazione a Nicolosi. La giovane italiana affronterà la vincente dell’altra semifinale tra la georgiana Chakhnashvili e la svedese Arvidsson (prossima avversaria delle azzurre di Fed Cup) che ha eliminato nei quarti per 63 61 la milanese Alberta

It just shows how much it comes down to experience on clay. :rolleyes:

Apr 21st, 2002, 05:16 AM
Can't wait to see what Nan Nan will be doing in Taranto, but mostly Maglie where the draw should be a bit weaker.

I hope that Tian Tian can play one of these 2 tourneys (as qualifier) since I believe her game should be the best of all Chinese players on clay :) .
