FACTS

In August 2002, ranked No. 358, Shuai lost in the 1st round of Los Angeles to No. 45-ranked Tina Pisnik 2-6, 6-2, 7-5.


March saw Shuai, as a qualifier, reach the final at the ITF Circuit event in New Delhi (IND), accumulating seven straight-set match wins in the process.


An excellent start to 2002 for Shuai, when ranked No. 512, she triumphed in the ITF Circuit title in Mumbai (IND) - ousting three seeds en route.


Shuai debuted on the Sanex WTA Tour at 2001 Shanghai, falling in the first round to No. 24-ranked third seed Tamarine Tanasugarn 6-4, 6-1.


Unranked, Shuai won her first singles title in only her third attempt on the ITF Circuit at 2001 Baotau (CHN), passing two seeds, including No. 321-ranked top seed Tian Tian Sun in the semi-final. Following Baotau, she reached the semi-final at Hohhot (CHN) and then took her second ITF Circuit title, at 2001 Tianjin (CHN), when No. 395-ranked top seed Nan Nan Liu retired 1-0. She also reached the final in doubles, closing in on her second ITF Circuit doubles title.


Lost in 1st round of the 2001 ITF Circuit event in Hangzhou (JPN) to No. 244-ranked third seed Rika Fujiwara

PERSONAL

Shuai began playing at age eight when an uncle (the only other family member who plays tennis) introduced her to the game.


Coached by Andy Brandi and Mandy Wilson.


Father's name is Ji Jun Peng and mother's name is Zhang Bing.


Her Favourites colour is red and she loves Chinese cuisine.


Past-times include reading and shopping.


She considers herself 'very quiet'.


The current tennis pro she most admires is Jennifer Capriati

She's a young player who is still an amateur but I don't know from what country. She nearly beat Tina Pisnik this year.

Yeah, it seems like she should be a fan of Jan-Michael Gambill's.

I'm pretty sure she's way taller than 1.73m by now. :eek:

BTW, she trains at the Evert Academy in Boca Raton.

Peng barely lost to Pisnik. Seles beat Pisnik 7-5 6-1 in Brazil with a serious foot problem. Peng is the quarterfinal queen in the Junior Grand Slams. Seles is the quarterfinal queen in the Womens Grand Slams. Peng has never played in front of this many people or against a player of this magnitude and ability. Call me crazy, but I think Monica is gonna OK here. However...

It's Win-Win for both. Peng gets the experience of a lifetime and Monica <cough> eases her way into the 2003 season.

Prediction: Seles 6-0 6-2

it is an exhibition so I doubt Monica will go for every line, but at the same time she's not gonna give away free points...i think Peng should get about 6 games and a good experience

I would expect this to be something comparable to Monica's match with Sharapova last March.
