Anyone know which style of a player he is? I heard he has a very strong serve?

Yang, one of Taiwan's few players who favors a power game, seemed to have the edge in his match against Tomic after breaking the Australian in the fifth game of the second set. But the 10th-seeded Yang finally fell victim to his inability to get his 200 kilometer-per-hour first serve in on a consistent basis -- his first serve percentage was a low 41 percent -- when he was broken three games later.

More HERE (http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/2008/01/27/140741/Yang-comes.htm)

He does play in Davis Cup together with Rendy.

PARIS PINNACLE: After the disappointment of being runner-up at the Australian Open, Yang Tsung-hua went one better at Roland Garros to take the boys’ title

Young Taiwanese tennis star Yang Tsung-hua wrote a new page in Taiwan’s tennis history as he defeated 12th seed Jerzy Janowicz of Poland in straight sets 6-3, 7-5, in the final of the boys’ singles at the French Open yesterday, becoming the first ever boys’ Grand Slam singles champion from Taiwan and the first Asian player to win the boys’ singles at one of the four Grand Slam tournaments in 17 years.

Yang made it to the final of the boys’ singles at the Australian Open earlier this year, but lost and finished the runner-up. Although not one of the seeded players at the French Open, he powered his way through to the final against Janowicz, who also lost to Yang at the Australian Open.

Yang broke the Janowicz serve in the second game of the first set to lead 3-0 and then held his serve to take the set 6-3.

However, at the beginning of the second set, Janowicz made a comeback by breaking Yang’s first two service games to lead 5-0. Yang rallied once more and managed to break his rival’s serve twice and hold his own for three consecutive games, making it a tie at 5-5.

In the 11th game, Janowicz held serve, and Yang held his own serve in the following game to set up a tie-break.

The pair fought fiercely in the tie-break until Yang took a 6-5 lead and he broke the Janowicz serve on his first championship point to defeat the Pole 7-5.

The biggest previous achievement by Taiwanese tennis players at the four Grand Slam boys’ singles tennis tournaments in the past was second place — Jimmy Wan was a runner-up at the Australia Open and at Wimbledon in 2001, while Yang equaled that achievement at the Australian Open this year.

Taiwan's Yang wins French Open junior boys title (http://www.chinapost.com.tw/sports/tennis/2008/06/09/160131/Taiwan's-Yang.htm)

PARIS -- Tsung-Hua Yang of Taiwan won the junior boys singles title at the French Open yesterday defeating Poland's 12th seed Jerzy Jankowicz 6-3, 7-6 (7/5)

The unseeded Yang was well in control of the first set but fell 0-5 down in the second before clawing his way back to force a tense tie-break which he won 7/5.

It was a case of one stage better for the Taipei resident who lost to Australia's Bernard Tomic in the junior boys final at the Australian Open in January.

Tomic lost in the quarterfinals in Paris, while Yang defeated second seed Cesar Ramirez of Mexico in straight sets in the semifinals. "I am very happy to win this game," Yang said. "I was 5-0 down in the second set and I thought I had already lost the set. But then I broke back and just played one game at a time.

"I was a bit scared before the match, but when I got out onto the court I was okay." Yang said that he would next play in the junior tournament at Wimbledon after which he would return to the ATP Futures circuit.

Our 'little fatty' was given a WC for the qualifying rounds in Beijing but sadly lost. :( Never mind! All part of the learning curve and I'll keep my fingers crossed for little fatty.

Esther (and other posters here :)), have you had a chance to see Yang play? I've not been so lucky and am wondering what his playing style is like. It'd be great to see more Asian players on tour now that Nishikori is winning a lot of people over. :D

Awww.... he lost in qualies. Hope he had learn something new from the pros. :D

I'd watched Yang played in the Wimbledon ( played dubs with Hsieh ). Sad, all his singles matches weren't on a livefeed court. Luckily, his semifinal match was at a feed court. :yeah:

He's a big server, big forehand, an average returner and volleyer. IMO, there's plenty room to improve. I hope he's next Kei. :D

Yang claims No. 1 Year-End Ranking

http://www.itftennis.com/shared/medialibrary/image/gallery/IO_36066_gallery.JPG

Top seed Tsung-Hua Yang (TPE) has won his first round match of the 2008 Orange Bowl to claim the year-end number one ranking spot after a gripping three set match against unseeded American Matthew Kandath. Yang made heavy work of his first round match, winning the first set in a closely fought tie-break before losing the second and then finding form in the third set to see off Kathman 76 46 62. This first round win now sees him secure his position as World Number one at the end of the year.

The upset of the day saw fourteenth seed Shuichi Sekiguchi of Japan fall to unseeded American and wildcard entrant Ryan Noble in three sets. Other seeds to have played include ninth seed Ryan Lipman (USA) and fourth seed Cedrik-Marcel Stebe (GER) who both took three sets to overcome their opponents, whilst both eighth seed, Borut Puc (SLO), and seventh seed, Nikolaus Moser (AUT), enjoyed straight set victories to advance to the second round.


Ana Bogdan (ROU) began her quest to finish the year as world number one. Bogdan made light work of her opponent Magda Linette (POL), dispatching of her in straight sets to set up a second round match against Sachia Vickery (USA).

The girls’ event saw two seeds fall. Tenth seed Valeria Solovieva (RUS) lost in straight sets to American Julia Boserup, and seventh seed Richel Hogenkamp (NED) was defeated in three sets by Alison Riske (USA), a quarter-finalist at last year’s Orange Bowl.

Seeded players Yana Buchina (RUS), Silvia Njiric (CRO) and Zsofia Susanyi (HUN) all enjoyed straight set victories over their opponents to advance to the second round. However it was far from plain sailing for third and fifth seeds Mallory Burdette (USA) and Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) who took three sets to overcome their opponents both looking at one stage as if they might crash out in the first round.

The other seeds, including second seed Laura Robson, will take to the courts tomorrow as the girls' race for the number one spot continues.

Tsung Hua is not qualified for enter Bankok qualies, and he went back Taiwan yesterday. He is gonna to play Taiwan Senior High school tennis event the next week.

Tsung Hua should not play this event, 'cause he's pro now, it's not fair for other players!!

Oh, what the heck! :eek:

Why is Ah Hua moving backward???? :confused:

Ah Hua needs better management in order to progress in his career! He's an Asian and junior no. 1, don't you think he would have been given a wildcard entry!

With the help from Elvis and Esther, I managed to meet up with Yang Tsung-hua today who is in town for Malaysia Futures events.

I'll post the interview, photos and video of Ah Hua practicing on court with fellow compatriot Chen Ti soon.

While waiting for my post, here's a picture of Chen Ti, coach 陳南 (I think his English name is Lehn Man) and Ah Hua (yes, we asked him to pose shirtless for the fans).

As promised here are some pictures of Ah Hua playing at the Futures events in Malaysia.

Here are some photos taken when he arrived for practice with his coach and Chen Ti last weekend in PJ:

Ah Hua who lost in the 3rd round in Malaysia F1 Futures last week, improved his performance this week at the Malaysia F2 Futures.

He made it into the final but lost to 1st seed and last week's champ Luigi D'Agord 2-6, 2-6.

Hopefully Ah Hua will make it to the final again at the Malaysia F3 Futures next week and eventually win the tournament.

T-H Yang lost 4-6 6-7(5), got to watch live the last couple of games, craving for more tennis!

Yang is probably taller than 173cm / 5'8" stated in some of his bio. He had 7 aces to 3 from Melzer, seems like he's bigger and stronger now at 19. They are actually 10 years apart, the older and more experienced won today but it was no walk in the park.
