they are good players, in progress ... but not yet in the top ten

It seems there are so many people who like them ... I would like to know what do you love about them?

thanks for your answers :)

I bet you there are a whole bunch of chinese folks around here. I am one myself. And let me tell you, it's just so great to see your players finally start to develop and become threats. Tennis is actually a huge sport for chinese-americans. I know that most of my friends here who are asian all play tennis. It's great to see China putting in the efforts to develop young players.

Because there are a lot of Chinese inside, and they are very courteous, there are very gentle personalities . In addition, I am Chinese after all, certainly like every tennis player of China very much

I dont see any difference in popularity between european players vs chinese players.

I think that's what the original poster was saying. There is no difference in popularity yet the European players are bonafide stars who have won slams and tournaments whereas the Chinese have been solid but no great acheivements yet.

I dont meant vs the european stars and slam winners.

Lets say: Golovin vs Na Li
Shiavone vs Peng
etc...

I like most of the Chinese girls because they are hardworkers. They don't ever give up on any point. I myself am a tennis player and when I see them play, they pump me up so much that I want to go out and hit more.

up!

i really like them, I don't know why, maybe because they base the game on technique and not just muscly ball wackers, and also they're cute

I think people are watching them carefully and hoping/seeing the possibility that eventually a "wave" will happen similar to the Russians 2004.

I liked the Chinese players initially because I am from Hong Kong, i dunno, some sort of patriotism i guess. Liking the look of Venise Chan and Jessica Yang at the moment from Hong Kong too :cool:
But another part to it is I like rooting for the underdog most of the time, and to me there is no better (or cuter, sweeter, harder working) example of an underdog than Sun Tian Tian :lol:

Maybe because there is more than 1 billion of Chinese on Earth?
But they are not THAT popular? :confused:

basically, that is nationalism. :sad: Supporting ALL chinese players simply because they are the same background does not make sense to me. Many people from many nationalities do the same thing however. I feel we should pick our faves based on character, game style ,etc. just my 2 cents.:wavey:
