If we use "Taiwan" or "Republic of China" then we probably won't be able to play DC or any other international sports games.Because if we use the word Taiwan
,then that means we represent a "nation" and mainland China government won't be happy to see that.
So to reply to title,yes, "Chinese Taipei"
is allowed play DC,but "Taiwan"
To avoid any further political arguments,I think I should
p.s. the one play double with Schuettler is Yen-Hsun Lu.They won the doubles title of Chennai Open this year
I think he's regulary trained with Schuettler for a long time.
