the master cup in shanghai is the very beginning where most new tennis fans know jc (sorry for my poor expression in english, u can understand?). he's absolutely the most popular man player among women fans. unlike most players, he doesn't look too robust, but slim and strong, and it just meets the aesthetics in china.
besides jc, federer, roddic, safin and hewitt are also popular now. most older tennis fans prefer the older "emperors" of course
