only one hundred fans welomed Jie Zheng in beijing

To my dispointed,only one hundred fans welomed Jie Zheng in beijing this afternoon, although Jie have just made great success in WO,and most of them came from media \ sponsor and CTA.maybe 32 yuan to airport is one obstacle.
on the other hand, this is not unusual. olympic gold is more important than grand slam , semifinal not has much value.
because only a few people play tennis, most people donot know the diffrence betwin grand slam and open game.
in china the most popular sport is football , although the chinese male team never win a important game.
other sport like table tennis, diving is more popular than tennis.
china tennis still have long way to do

Re: only one hundred fans welomed Jie Zheng in beijing

I dont think that this telling us anything about Jie or tennis popularity in China. Simple, in China not exist tradition of spontanios celebrations or gatherings. I'm sure that if some officials from China Government or city of Beijing organize "meeting of support" to Jie and her Wimbledon 2008 success, that many people will come (even without Zheng!) b/c she is enough popular there right now (IMO).

Re: only one hundred fans welomed Jie Zheng in beijing

Commentator said over 100.000.000 chinese people attended Jie's QF match. That would've probably doubled in the SF.
Don't say she or tennis is not popular in China.

What's Wimbledon? If Jie wins at the Olympics, then she'll be a hero.
