Halle R1: [Q] Zhang def. Kamke 6-4 7-6(2)

Out of the top 100 soon, the German will be. Kamke had a double break lead in the first set; Zhang led by a break twice in the second and served for it at *5-3. Good win for the Chinese but obviously, at home, losing this sort of match is unacceptable for Tobias.

I can't remember any ATP main draw win for a player from China.
Zhang had some success in futures before.

Good for tennis. Kamke has no talent at all. He doesn't deserve to be even in top 100 in the first place.

Didn't even know there was a Chinese player in the top 200. Finally the Peoples Republic getting some male competitors. Took them a while.

Certainly doesn't help that your population's average height is about 5'7 ..

Japan and Argentina have similar averages.

A population of 1.4billion should compensate. The tallest 300million probably average 6'0.

Argentina is at 5'8 1/2 actually.

But yes, the tallest 300 million probably do average 6'0 (in fact I would say it might even be higher due to abnormally tall people in the northeast)

Still, wouldn't hurt their chances to have a higher average height though. Zhang is 6'2 after all.
