I'm not surprised with Yan-Hua Dong's thrashing of the 7th seed. She's a good player concentrating on the pro circuit, rather than play much juniors. And she did beat Elena Bovina in March last year. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Good luck to 15 year old Joanne Cheung against the 3rd seed, although I can't see her winning. I hope she one day achieves the dream of being Top 10 in Asia. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Eggy, Yan-Hua is 18 this year.
She's listed as 165cm and 64kg.

BTW, were there any other players that you found impressive in those 2 Chinese tourneys?

Oct 19th, 2001, 04:16 PM
Na Li was the one other "Asian youngster"that impessed me , she did pretty good and got to semis at both events , lost to Elena in 1st 7-6 6-3 , that was pretty close encounter with lots of deuce games.
