I found an article about Beier Ko:

<font size=4>TENNIS/Eddie Herr International Junior Championships<br />Ko debuts with 6-0<br />posted 11/27/01</font>

<br />BRADENTON -- When a match ends at the Eddie Herr International Junior Tennis Championships, the normal procedure is for each player to pick up the sign with the name of his or her country and return it to the tournament desk.

When it came time for Beier Ko to leave the court Monday at the IMG Bollettieri Academies, she picked up her sign and started to walk away.

Then she noticed the sign left by her opponent.

When she hesitated, unsure what to do, a friend handed her the orphaned sign and said, "Be a good girl." Ko dutifully took both signs. That's the price a player pays for being too good, and for hanging a double bagel on her opponent.

Ko was about as good as a tennis player can get in her first-round match, overpowering Krystal Sauvageau 6-0, 6-0 to advance to the second round in the Girls 16-Under division.

Sauvageau was what was considered a "lucky loser," a player who lost in qualifying but got into the main draw because of a withdrawal of one of the tournament's participants. However, there was nothing lucky about Sauvageau drawing the division's No. 1 seed, a girl who, at 15, has a Women's Tennis Association ranking.

Ko later explained that her first name means "very precious" in Chinese. Her tennis game Monday reflected that. Sauvageau struggled to win points and the match lasted barely longer than the time the two took to warm up.

"I just have to play my game and stay focused," Ko said of the late switch of opponents, which came about when Samantha Gauneir of France withdrew from the tournament. "At least I knew (Sauvageau)."

Ko knew of Sauvageau because both players are listed as being from Canada, meaning Ko returned a pair of Canada signs to the tournament desk. Yet Ko, a truly international player, could have returned any number of signs.

"I was born in Singapore, moved to Canada when I was 3 and moved to Florida and have been living here for five years," she explained.

"Here" is Boca Raton, where she has honed her tennis game. She used to train at the Chris Evert Academy there but now works out of a park called South County Regional.

"It's very convenient to my home, about a five-minute drive," she said. "And it seems like everybody goes there now."

Several players in this week's tournament have found that park a perfect place to train and Ko insists that she has been "working hard" leading up to the Eddie Herr tournament.

"I really would like to win the tournament," she said Monday. "But I have to go one match at a time."

That's a lesson she has learned several times over. Last year Ko was the No. 1 seed in the girls 14-Under division here and lost in the quarterfinals. Yet she was not shocked to see she is seeded No. 1 in the 16s this year.

That WTA ranking (No. 706) carries weight. So does her No. 1 national ranking in Canada and her top 100 International Tennis Federation ranking.

"I thought I might be seeded No. 2 or No. 3 but I knew I would be one of the top seeds," she said.

Ko built her resume and reputation by spending the year playing ITF tournaments, as well as a few professional events. She has played in four Challenger tournaments and got into the qualifying of a WTA tournament in Canada.

This week is the start of a busy schedule for Ko, who attends school at Cambridge Academy in Boca. After the Herr tournament, she will play in the Continental Cup, a team competition held near Miami.

She will also play the Orange Bowl tournament before heading to Mexico for a couple of ITF events. Then she will go on to Australia, where she got to the quarterfinals last year in the Australian Open Junior tournament.

Ko also won the 18-Under and 16-Under national tournaments in Canada this past year.

"I want to play all the Grand Slam tournaments and some pro events this next year," she said.

Her little brother, Zhi Wei Ko, reached the round of 16 before losing Monday to Cheong-Eui Kim.

Ko led a parade of highly-seeded players in the 16-Under divisions to advance on the first full day of play in the main draws of the prestigious junior event.

Among the winners in the boys 16-Under division was Brendan Evans, the No. 1 seed, who rolled to a 6-3, 6-3 win over Korea's Kwang-Mu Chung.

Lolita Frangulyan, who trains at the Gomez Academy in Sarasota, joined Ko in the second round of the 16-Under division.

The boys and girls 12-Under divisions, which started play over the weekend, got down to the quarterfinals Monday. Among the winners was Donald Young, a player who has not lost a match in the U.S. this year.

Play in the boys and girls 18-Under divisions gets under way today.

The tournament is open to the pubic at no charge.

-------------

It would be nice if she wins! GOOD LUCK, BEIER KO! <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />
