We have 8 Thai's girls in the draws, 3 won and 5 defeat. It should be 4 all if Wilawan could manage the end of the match. She lost the first set 3-6, and came back to won the tie break in the 2nd set. At 4 all the 3rd set, she had 0-40, 3 break point, in the ninth game but she could not convert it. Finally the nuber 6 seeded, Mossiakova won 6-3,6-7(4),6-4. Bad luck Wilawan.

Wongkamalasai beated Tameishi, seeded 1, 6-3 in the first set and Tameishi retired from the match. Tameshi was not in the match. She made ton of unforce error. The tournament coordinator said she feel bad before the match. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

I am very much impressed I-Ting Wang. She hitted the ball so well, good placing especially her forehand. She also has good movement on court.

Wada, seeded 3, lost to Chattida Thimchapo. I am disappointing with Wada's game, at 4 all in the 3rd set I think if she played more aggressive she should win the match. Chattida hit the ball hard both forehand and backhand and fortunately she played better than Wada in the last 2 games of the final set.

Another Thai's girl, Prariyawan, she have good record with the runner up at Manila (If I correct). Unfortunately, I did not have chance to watch her match today. I will see her match againt Dziamidzenka(BLR) tomorrow.

Shizu Katsumi beated Anuchan 6-1,6-0. Katsumi is nice person. She have sticked bandage on her right arm. I talked to her with Japanese, She said she feel pain during practicing. This is the second times in Thailand and she like Thailand because the people is so nice and cost of living is cheaper than Japan.

The tournament have arranged welcome party tomorrow and all players are requested to attend. I will be there tomorrow and try to take some photos.

Jiro,

thanks for the pictures and the comments. Very interesting. For the pictures, it is a bit surprising. In some posts I can see your pics, in some posts I can't.

In this particular case, I can't. Is someone having the same problem?

Regarding the welcome party tomorrow. My advice would be to try to get well acquainted with a player this Sunday. If all goes well, you have a good chance to be invited at the party <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> . It is better to take some good pics.

Enjoy this Sunday <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> .

Hi Steveg,<br />I have seen your private e-mail and may I ask you some question.

You said you have been chatting to Arnaud Decugis. You mean Julie Harrade's (spelling not sure, please correct me if I am wrong) husband. It seem look like he came with Loit. I am glad to know you are already in my taken photo.

For sure, if I catch Shelley Stevens (I do not know her before), Ka-Po and Stephanie Cohen I will ask for the pics. <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />

Yep Jiro, I think he is the husband of Julie Halard-Decugis.

Nop, he did not come with Emilie Loit. You'll see on the pic you took of Su-Wei and Ka Po : Emilie is on the right (did not look particularly happy, did she <br /> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> ). Just behind her, there is a blond guy (white polo shirt). This is Emilie coach.

Nop again, I can't see the pictures you posted <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> .

danker,<br />I tried but could not get to the page. Jiro, would it be possible to post your pics under a Yahoo-my photos folder accessible to everyone?<br />This would greatly help.<br />BTW, I think it is not possible to post pics from Yahoo website. I have had the same problem with my pics <img src="mad.gif" border="0"> <img src="mad.gif" border="0"> . That's why I gave a link.

Hi Danker and Steveg,

I think the problem was I posted the above pics with different method as I did before. I will do the same as I posted the pics from Pattaya. Please wait.

The Pea, Chisayo is a pretty girl. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

She's quite a good player.<br />I think she turned pro this year after attending University for 1 year. She won the Inter High-School Championships in 1999, beating Kaori Aoyama in the final if I'm not mistaken.

She's had a decent year, but fitness could improve, as she seems to get injured quite a bit...

Still can't see anything. But this is because the connection is extremely slow at this time. I'll connect again at 04:00, when connections are quite OK.<br />I am curious to see what Chisayo looks like <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> .

I am very disappointing for the welcome party since there are few players have attended. No Japanese players, Some Korea players are Mi-Ra, Lee. I can see Chin Bee, Ka-Po, Leander Pae, Bhupathi.

Danker : I met Chin Bee but I did not ask for her pic. How old is she. She is not young, I think she may be over 20 years old. I will ask question for you if I meet her next time. Chisayo Ito and Shizu Kamitsu are very friendly and nice person. Both of them talk to me with Japanese. I often met Ito because she always walk around. I will ask for her pics on Dec 5 if I meet her.

Steveg : I really do not know who is Shelley Stephens. I will try again on Wednesday. I met Ka-Po and ask question as your request. She said she will play Asian Championchip in Hong Kong for next tournament on Dec 17 and will play WTA tournament in new Zealand in January and for sure she will play some tournament in Vietnam around March or April next year. I told her about you she smile and laugh and she said she like your country and love to eat Vietnam's food. I also asked tournament advisor about Stephanie Cohen-Aloro because I could not catch her. It seem like she will check in tonight. Steveg, I will e-mail you Ka-Po and Chisayo Ito's photo.

Here below are some pics for today : (Sorry for ATP players)

Tong Ka-Po

Prariyawan,Pichittra,Lamangthong,Tassha,Napaporn

Jiro,

Chin-Bee is 24 years old. She played the pro circuit for a couple of years before attending College. I'm glad she's pro now. Did she seem like a nice person? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I'm disappointed to hear that very few players participated in the Welcome Party. <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />I'm surprised there were no Japanese players because they already seemed to have arrived and practising the last few days.
