Mini Report:

I finally saw Maria play, and she was impressive. Nice groundies, very consistant. She definitley resembles Anna K. Maria was in control of the whole match and her volleys seem pretty good. I was really surprised by how good Yue Qing played. She was in total control of the match. Her forehand seemed really good. She was hitting a couple of tough winners with it.

Hey Eggie, thanks for posting the updated draws! Very much appreciated. <IMG SRC="smilies/kiss.gif" border="0"> On a a sad note, I am so sorry that Alexandra lost. <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">

I fully expect Maria to win. This tournament is too easy for her but I am glad that she is playing anyway. It's a good practice for her. Playing a G5 Jr tournaments means she is serious about nothing but tennis.

Hey Aloha, thanks for giving us a report. A few questions for you if you don't mind. Did you take a chance to take some pictures of Maria? What did she wear today? Hope some new line of Nike tennis apparel for the fall season. I really dislike the Nike outfits during US Open. Her hot red top and white skirt was my favorite Nike outfit so far for this year (this spring). Did you enter this tournament for free? What are her strengths and weaknesses? I think her strengths from what I heard since a year are her backhand, flat groundstrokes and maybe her serve. And her weaknesses are forehand and hmmm, I don't know yet! Aloha, please don't tell me that Maria plays like Anna (I will cry if it's true! <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0"> ) I want her to be like Martina H. or Monica Seles or Graf or Venus! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Aloha, thank you in advance if you answer my questions.

I can't wait for her to play in Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl. Plus, I can't wait for her to turn 15 next April before she starts play more and more in jr and some pro events.

Maria will enter into the top 100 in the juniors after playing only 4 tournaments if she wins (she WILL!)! Pretty good stuff to start a career for Maria. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">


Aloha, will you go there tomorrow again? If so, give us another report! We all will appreciate very much! <IMG SRC="smilies/kiss.gif" border="0">

I believed she wore a white skirt and a blue shirt. Sorry I wasnt able to take pictures. I didnt see enough to really tell what her strengths were because she was just dominating the match, but her backhand seem to be her strength. Her serve was good, but it was a little shaky at times, but i was really impresses with her volleying skills. As for speed she seemed fast, getting a lot of balls back. Her play somewhat resembled Anna, but not really. I'll have to see her play more to evaluate her game, but the future looks bright.

Good win for Qing Yue! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Aloha, can you tell me more about her?
All I know is about her is that she's 14, and was part of the Chinese team in the World Junior Tennis Championships.

Does she hit hard?
How strong is she physically?

Hope she gets to the finals.
BTW, is Melissa Mang Asian and Preethi Mukundan of Indian descent?

Here's a pic of Qing.

Good news for Asian tennis fans Yue Qing won 6-4 6-2 (or 6-3) She was very impressive. She hit the ball semi hard but i dont see her as a hard hitter. She is a baseliner.

Maria also won 6-2 7-6. She hit a lot of backhand winners. She even got a couple of aces in.
