CHANG, Kai-Chen is an up and coming Taiwanese tennis player this year. She will be an unbelievable force in Taiwan tennis, along with YJ, Su-wei and Chai-Jung. She also has a powerful serve, which can be a threat on grass court and any surface. Let's cheering for KC and wish her the best of luck in her young tennis career. :bigwave::clap2::bigclap::rocker:

Kai-chen is playing at a $25,000 challenger event this week at Sorrento, Australia. Kai-chen might play Yi-miao again at this tournament. Their head to head is 1-1. Last time they played each other was last week at Kalgoorlie, Australia. Kai-chen lost to Yi-maio in 3 sets 6-2, 3-6, 3-6. That is the only set YM lost in the entire tournament. I think this could be a good rivary between these two. They have the similar age and ranking. Let's wait and see who is going to be on top by the end of the year. :)

I think she will play at least 15 tournaments this year since she just turned 17 in January 2008. :wavey: She has a great start got to final in a 25k challenger event this year. Her confidence will only go up and up.

KC lost to WHEELER, Christina in QF 6-3 4-6 5-7 and lost to #2 seed 2-6, 4-6 in doubles final. I think KC play too much tennis this week ( both singles and doubles), her fitness is definately an issue. I'm confident KC will do better and better next tournament. :)..BTW, Yi-maio alos lost in QF as well. :-(

DOubles final: Chang/Hwang(3) def Sema/Sema 6-3 2-6 10-8

Well done Kai-Chen! With this win she should crack top 300 for both singles and doubles!

I saw Kai-Chen play Jess Moore at the Australian Open juniors this year. Even though she lost comfortably in straight sets, I couldn't help be impressed because she hit the ball REALLY HARD and had a powerful serve, even though her second serve let her down with lots of double fault (but she has time to work on that). I think she is definitely a big prospect for Taiwan as her game is very big, which is being proven as the results are already coming at these ITFs.
