Attention fellow WTAWorld posters :wavey:

you are in for a treat the next 2 days no matter where you live :eek:
because for the first time in a long time, you will be treated to the brilliant play of Chinese players on your TV set for 2 days in a row on either Eurosport or The Tennis Channel :dance:

broadcasting LIVE from Toronto to a TV set in your living room, tomorrow you will see the Chinese Goddess (ALT)Zi Yan :inlove: step up and challenge the defending champ (4) Ana Ivanovic ... Zi Yan is the WTA's record holder in consecutive wins in qualifying draws :p

and on Thursday (assuming Henin can roll over Klepac), you will see the reigning French Open champion Juju Henin take on the Chinese Phenom Shuai Peng ::cool: ... it was around two years ago that Shuai defeated Juju's compatriot Clijsters in another North American hardcourt Tier I, prompting Kim to label her as a future Top 3 player :worship: ... will Shuai pay homage to the double handed Bartoli by running Juju from side to side :confused:

no matter which match you watch, you will see big hitting, brilliant shotmaking, insane angles :speakles:

so set your VCRs ... cancel your plans and buckle in for two days of exciting tennis :bounce:

:lol: I'm looking forward to it. Yan has an amazing footwork, so she should be able to handle Ana's pace better than other players do.

Bombshell: both Henin & Ivanovic will win more challenges than their opponents will win games.

No Rezai was moved to MD after Masha's withdrawal so Cravero moved into her spot with 25th seed and Yan replaced her :p

:rolleyes: credit where credit is due? someone of ana's quality wouldn't simply resign themselves to a loss against someone in the top 150?

Go Zi! Amazing. :bounce: :banana:

Ana will bounce back i'm sure

pierce0415

Tennis Channel will show this match on tape later tonight
I will be watching for sure

you expect TheBoiledEgg to give credit where its due
in his opinion, the Russians and his other faves should win every single match they play
when they don't, no credit ever to the opponent
