I really enjoyed seeing several different Asian players in the majors this year. Their styles were individually unique as well as being different from anyone else I've seen on tour. I hope they continue to progress so that I get more opportunities to see them. Good luck, ladies!!

No, 'Asian' means representing an Asian country and their federation. Tu would not count as Asian, neither would Chang etc.

Oh they are not Asian? Just because they do not represent an Asian nation, Tu and Chang are still American Citizens of Asian descent. And so are Kimberly Po, Amber Liu and Kevin Kim.

ANd yes people, Iroda is an Asian woman. Sheesh, people it amazes me how people identify people based on just skin tone.

Technically, if you look up ethnicity in the encyclopedia, Iroda would not be considered asian. But there are different terms with everyone so whatever. Go Akiko :D

The what would she be considered? Her country is an Asian land as is Pakistan and India.

Asia is more than just the Orient folks.

It has an explanation of Tulyaganova's ethnicity in your encyclopedia? :)

P.S. Americans of Asian descent are still American, and can be called whatever they want to be. Very few Americans have long ancestry that streches back generations, whatever their apparent ethnicity.
