1R: d. ?? 6-3 6-7(4) 6-0
2R: d. Q-?? 6-0 6-0
3R: d. WC-Yurika Sema 6-1 6-0

Just for the record, she's allowed to play 6 more events until her 18th birthday.

Is Su-Wei washed up? Why did she lose 2-2 to a very average player?

genemark
Feb 18th, 2005, 03:30 PM
As much as I don't want to admit it, the major reason why Su-wei was in a slump after achieving a WTA ranking of 150 something 2 years ago is the fact that she was no longer coached by her father. Most of you are probably aware of the incident between su-wei and her dad. She has been living and playing tournaments in Japan since the split with her dad/coach. Japan has offered great facilities and environment for her. However, without a stable and consistant coach, it is my assumption that she was not motivated in realizing her full potential. About two weeks ago, the taiwanese media reported that Su-wei is now back in taiwan and is again being coached by her dad. Her dad was responsible for su-wei's surge in ranking as a junior besides her own talent. On a side note, su-wei also has a younger sister who is making headlines in taiwan as a junior player as well. Her little sister, su-in (spelling?) is only about 5'2 at the age of 12 and was able to beat girls like Chan Yuan Jan's little sister who stands at wooping 5'9, also at an age of 12. Hopefully, this is the first sign of Su-wei rebound back to the tour. We will soon see how her training is going with her dad in the upcoming 25K tournament that will be held in Taipei. I, however, don't want to put any pressure on Su-wei. Afterall, she is only been back to regular coaching with her dad for couple weeks. But overall, I think it is a good move for her.

Kutuzova
Feb 18th, 2005, 11:24 PM
Im am glad and at the same time nervous that Su-wei is back with her father. Her dad was a great coach and i agree, that is the reason for her fall and consistent struggle in lower events. Hopefully she can regain the form she had a few years ago because she is definately a top 50 if not better talent. I just hope nothing goes wrong this time.

Her sister is awsome!. She might even be better than Su-wei in the future.

Best of luck to both and GOOD LUCK Su-wei in Taipei 25K!

a combination of visa problems and also scheduling conflicts with a local tournament (national college athletes competition) that is going on starting this weekend. Chan Chin-wei and Chuang Chia-Jung are also in the same tournament. That's why all of them withdrew from 25K and 50K in japan this week and next week. It will be interesting to see how well su-wei will do against chia-jung and chin-wei.

The countryside of China can be quite scary really, I think it's a bit wild out there..

The other reason she doesn't prefer to play in China is you can't fly directly from Taiwan, unlike Japan and Korea, which makes the tickets more expensive.

so she said she won't play in China as long as there is another option..

It's not like there are tennis courts in the "wild" countryside. All the tournaments are in fairly large cities.
If she schedules correctly, she can fly FROM Japan or Korea to a tournament in China. That would be a direct flight. Or does she need to return to Taiwan every week?

The reason for not playing US open WAS the shadow of family history - and obviously it's not Su-Wei's decision. However, sounds like she and her father changed plan/schedule. Report said Su-Wei will play several US tournaments this August. Not sure if she still plan to skip US Open.

su-wei left her dad and went to japan after U.S. open in 2002. I think that's what it meant by the "history" with the US open. It was reported in the news that both su-wei and her dad would want to play in the US open. The only problem is the budget issue.

I saw su-wei's match today with Marcio but I was late so when I got there, Su-wei was leading 5-1 in the first set. From the little that I saw, Su-wei pretty much dominated the whole match with an impressive display of base-line winners. Some of her down the line winners were just unbelieveable. She also hits a lot harder than I had expected. All her shoots were hard and flat. Except for the 2 double faults in the first game of the second set and some strange drop shoots, Su-wei did a great job.

I think she noticed that someone is taking a photo of her so she double faulted two points in a row :( I immediately stopped taking photos so these are all I have! Strangely, she did much better and finished the job. I will try to take more in the 2nd round.

I finally witnessed Su-wei making it into her first grand slam tournament. She was up for a very quick start with a 5-1 lead in the beginning and I thought I could have an early dinner as I was starving. Not only was she leading a lot by games, but also within each game. However, su-wei started to make some silly mistakes against Milagros Sequera. In addition Sequera realized that su-wei seems to have problems handling loopy balls so she was moon balling su-wei a lot. Finally, Su-wei was able adapt to the moon ball tactics and started to hit the balls much earlier with excellent timing (with occassional odd drop shoots). Su-wei eventually prevailed and closed the first set. The second set was tight in the first few games but mostly due to Su-wei's tanacity of trying too close to the lines. Most of her balls lands unbelieveably close to the lines. Today, she seems to be better at cross court big angle shoots. Eventually, Sequera did not put up much of a fight anymore. Sequera did have excellent first serves though. She is also a very good defensive players. However, she needs to develop some sort of a weapon if she wants to move up to the next level. I don't know how Srebotnik plays but it's not a bad draw for Su-wei. At least it is a lot better than Chan's draw.

genemark
Aug 27th, 2005, 01:47 AM
Actually, she just sort of smiled without huge emotion. Perhaps she was just relieved. I think since the second set was pretty dominating for her, she probably already got over the fact that she was moving on the the main draw way before the match was over. She was surrounded by some fans afterward and some people with video cams were interviewing her. I only overheard she said "3 years", which probably meant that the last time she played here was 3 years ago. Her first serves were excellent with couple of aces and unreturnables. Her 2nd serve probably needs more work though perhaps with more depth and height. It's hard to tell since Sequera wasn't exactly killing su-wei's 2nd serves either. Chan finished her match just shortly before Su-wei's match began so Chan was not present to watch Su-wei's match. Lu Yen-Hsun actually was playing his match right next to Su-wei's and his match drew more taiwanese/asian fans (he is more well known in taiwan). So only when Lu's match finished, people started to come over to the adjacent court to cheer for su-wei. I did not see her father. I think he is in Taiwan. Strangely, I did not see Chan's father either but I know he is here at the Open. I did see Chan's little sister though and she is a very tall girl for a 12-13 y.o. I really don't see any recognizable players watching Su-wei playing.

Do you think Su-Wei has the game to enter the top 100? She got creamed by Katarina -- at least the scoreline suggests this. She has few points to defend, and if she continues to play well, who knows where she will be when the Aussie rolls around. Any thoughts?

su-wei explained that she was trying too much to go for the lines when she played srebotnik. She made tons of unforced errors and never tried to changed her strategy. If she was outplayed by srebotnik, then it would be a serious problem for her to become a top player. However, it seems that she got killed because of an unusually error-prone match. I think she is still in the process of regaining her forms so it's hard to say where she will be at in the future. Most people who have seen her play in person (including myself) are quite amazed at her shot making ability. She can create angles that are simply crazy.

BTW, what's the URL of Su-Wei's message board? :confused:

Is there any input from her yet regarding the Asian Championships? I'm interested in what she has to say after that final...

I assume her next tourney is $25K Ibaraki, JPN next week. :)

Her message board is at http://tw.club.yahoo.com/clubs/Su-WeiHsieh . However, it is all written in Chinese. She mentioned that she felt that the empires were on Akgul's side. She tried very hard to get the balls to the lines and were confident that most of them were in. However, the empire and line judges saw them differently.

su-wei mentioned that she needed some rest so will take two weeks off. The next tournament will be 50K Busan and 50K Shenzhen. Then she will come to the U.S. for strength training (which I think she really needs) for two months before the Australian open. It's not necessarily a bad thing for su-wei to go through the qualifying draw since she earned lots of points from the US open (40) when she qualified. Hopefully, she will be more consistant next year.

It's only a lot of points if she qualifies. ;) What I hope she aims for now is to get a high enough ranking for a seeding. :)

Su Wei has been short sighted for years but did not wear glasses during matches.

She did not wear them previously for either night or indoor matches. Guess it's something new.

Good to see Su Wei in Roland Garros.

She has not lost her touch from what I saw in her Thursday match. Played some amazing shots.

She seems to have recovered some motivation, though she still looked bored on court from time to time.

If she can maintain some focus during her matches, she can achieve good results in Roland Garros.

I don't know if any of you know much about SU-Wei but I just watched some of her match against Morita earlier this year and she was not even trying...is she a headcase? She was tanking it or something...she wouldn't move, she'd hit a drop shot just about every chance she could get and she would just walk up and serve and then move to the other side. Maybe it was just a bad day for her but it was very disappointing to see...Clearly she doesn't do that all the time or sahe wouldnt have qualified as easily as she did for the French...Hope she does well and keeps her head in her matches because she's clearly verrrrrrrrrrry talented. Just a thought...anyone know anyhting about this? Good luck to her in the MD!

Su Wei tried hard against Johansson but I don't think she was at the top of her shape.

She had her waist strapped and seemed not to go through the ball like she did in her previous matches.

it was good to see her try hard and not tank the match.

I hope that she'll be better soon and ready for more damages in grand slams :D
