Re: Who's going?

hey, bg! you went to Beijing last year? wow~

I am going to this tourney in Sep. So far, we have no idea who will come, coz many players haven't decided their second-half year schedule yet. We have to wait for around 2 months I think.

If I see any news, I will post here and let you know and also welcome you to Shanghai again at TMC if you are available at that time

Re: Who's going?

it's ok i will go to both. TMC is in my own city so I won't miss it. Beijing is a little bit far, but it's always good to watch some live tennis.

See u in Beijing then ~~~

Re: Who's going?

I suggest Yun Nan, Tibet, but they are quite far from Beijing. Suzhou, Hangzhou in south China. And also Jiu Zhai Gou (in Gansu Province) and Zhang Jia Jie (in Hubei Province) are very attractive. If you like sea & beach, and won't go very far from Beijing, then Dalian, Qingdao are good choices.

Re: Who's going?

Sanya is in Hainan Province, very attractive tropical beach resort
but it's too far from Beijing. Beijing is at the north of China, but Sanya is on the Hainan Island, extreme south of China. You have to take plane to go there.

Re: Who's going?

no more news. last friday when we chatted with Hong Gang, who is a commentator of CCTV 5, we asked him who would come but he told us that no one knows! I think maybe many players have to make the decision untill US Open....

I will post the latest news as soon as possible.

hello, BG! nova's suggestion is great! give me no more chance! there is a tiny mistake nova, Zhang Jia Jie is in Hunan province, not Hubei.

Re: Who's going?

hi June really? I always think Zhang Jia Jie is in Hubei, not Hunan..... coz some of friends have been there for travelling, and they told me that.....I know our country a little bit large....

And don't you think making decision after US Open is toooooo late? that's impossible. I just thought many players have made decision. And someone told me Moya & Nadal will come this year, also another spanish JC Ferrero (he is a big fav here). And I think some players who have to play DC matches after CO won't come maybe, just think last year Moya and JC lost early......

Re: Who's going?

There is a rumour going round that David Nalbandian and Mariano Puerta will be going to Beijing and playing doubles together there (in preparation for the Davis Cup semi final), - but at this stage I have no verification of whether this is true or not - so still just a rumour.

Thanks Rosie well, the tourney organizor just announced some main players who will go to Beijing this year, and David is one of them, but they didn't mention Mariano.
