What happened to Taiwanese prospects?

I've been tracking Yen-hsun Lu and Yeu-Tzuoo Wang for a couple years now and after some initial success they seem to really have slowed progress, especially this year.

Is Wang injured a lot this year?

Are they still considered prospects for top 100? Or is the daily grind of the tour wearing them down?

I read something last year Nick Bolletteiri thinks Wang is top 100 very soon but he has played poorly this year.

I think both of them "stuck" in the "points saving" thing. During this year, they played futures or challengers, only saving points they received last year.

I really think they must forget about ranking(they wants to be Taiwan No1 all the time), try to play ATP tourments is the best way to break into top100.

Re: What happened to Taiwanese prospects?

is this the reason why not many asians are succeeding in pro tennis too?

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

What abour problems with recurrent injuries . This will certainly slow them down unless they take a good care of it.

Anyway, both of them are in Tashkent this week, seeded one (Yen-Hsun) and two (Jimmy). Let's see what they can achieve. They get a wonderful opportunity to make it in a Grand Slam Main Draw.

I agree with you Grace that this internal rivalry is not helping out a lot .
