Notice to struggling European and American players with talent:

Go To Asian ITFs. :wavey: It might just be worth the travel money.

so true :lol:
and you don't need try so hard to win here. if you are lucky enough, you might only meet some unkown Asian girls who don't even know how to pick up a racquet.

yeah, i'm not hating but the field in asia's probably weaker even though the tournament might be of the same tier of that in europe/america. not many juniors from europe/america can afford to travel all the way to asia :shrug:

No need to be so cynical about her achievements :rolleyes:

We'll see the coming years whether it's the Asian ITFs which were weak or Yanina who's strong enough to seriously compete at the 25K/50K challengers level. In the situation she is in now, it is a good experience and it permits her to get better.

why she don't play in europe ?
because level is so high !!!!!!!!!!!
no impressive ..........
My friend told that she will be won all tournamets in Asia

I was not being cynical. :weirdo: I said that players with talent can easily make deep runs in the Asian ITFs because the fields are oftentimes much weaker than American and European events. It's not a matter of opinion, just look at the entry lists and draws. Stop being so sensitive. :help: :lol:

and Yung-Jan Chan n_69

Ok, the field there is weaker than in Europe, but Yanina also won 25K Les Contamines earlier this year. 3 of the 4 ITF's she has won this year where as a non-seaded player. So she abviously had to beat higher ranked players to do so.

The trip to Asia was just a good way to win some points, but you still have to do so when you're there. Now she has a better ranking and she can play some grandslams ans WTA-tournaments next years .. no nead to stay in these 25K tournaments now. I think it was a very good choice to go there and she made something of it.

Yanina's results are great, because she got them in 5 consecutive weeks. People on this board talk about playing too many events and the effect it has on the player's results.
Yanina had 3 wins, a F and a SF without even a week of rest. :worship:

Lukasz
Nov 21st, 2007, 08:46 AM
really for me it;s a no good and no bad results
Why she don't play in Europe 50K?
all players from Asia aren't a good form because
these players wroking from AO good results
