I think this asian fellow have a bright future in tennis, ive paid more attention to his game ever since i saw his match against roddick in wimbledon 2004 on tv, didnt know he exist b4 that match. Y-T Wang lost in straight sets 6-3 7-5 6-4, but he fight hard and showed alot of spirit, alot have been said about this up and coming player and i think sooner or later his physical n mental game will come together!

more heads will be turning and more eyes on him as he leads a new breed of asian tennis players to the top!! :yeah:

Everyones welcome to post any news / info!! ~~ and cheer him on :bounce:

its alittle bit harder to pick up than pingpong at first, but once u know the basics n can rally a few shots, u wont believe hitting a little fluffy yellow ball can be so much fun!!

Uzu recieved US$10800 in prize money winning the Istanbu title, im sure their managers/agents or whoever incharge of his finance would agree for him to travel first class to China? use celebrating the victory as an excuse! ;)
it is a long flight however, hope he arrive there fresh n continue his gd form.

after Uzu's dissapointing loss in d USO qualies 2nd rd...his decision to play d Turkey challenger really payed off. by winning this title, Yeu-Tzuoo has became the world's top 1oo player!! Right on d line! :aplot:

@Chewy:I am not sure, but i read an article about asian players...they are really poor...

yeah i would think so, since tennis is still developing in most asian countries, it would be harder for players to get funding from gov. or private companies.
but if Uzu and Lu can crack into the worlds top 50 or higher, the sport will become alot more popular in taiwan. i guess right now they r still lacking top players.

i think wang had abit of luck n a whole lotta skills in this match. wangy won 1st set against haas 7-5 :eek:, then fly to a 5-1 :rocker2: lead in d 2nd set b4 haas breaks twice to 5-3.
But then wang finaly manage to close it out :bigclap: Uzu won 7-5 6-3!

Jimmy's into QF RD!!

Hass is currently ranked 39th in d world(carreer high world no.2), i think this is Uzu's biggest win to date. Beating a top 40 player n in straight sets, he did it in style!

n to think i mentioned just a few post ago that i hope Uzu can beat a top player. didnt think it'll happen so soon, definitely a confidence booster!
this win hav made my day...although its 3am in d morining n im abt to fall asleep typing this. off 2 bed now, gd nite!

by reaching d QF, no doubt he'll return inside 100(currently at no.102). i can giv an estimate by the points he has already earn at this point, if he don't get any further(fingers crossed, who knows maybe he get d chance to play Roger in SF! :devil: ) his ranking might rise to d high 80s; 88..89?

Niemenen won 6-4 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 :crying2:

its sad his run came to an end but at the same time im very happy he manage to reach d QF(1st time tiawanese player reach atp level singles QF :) ).

i was reading d point by point commentary by other poster whn i got home 2nite, i knew d match was over because it just started whn i left home. i didnt know who won so it was exciting just readin d post :p
turns out wang called for trainer whn he was leading 4-3 in final set, after medical treatment they began d 8th game. wang serving to hold for 5-3 and had 40-15 b4 being broken to 4-4, then it was downhill as his movement decreased due to cramps. the commentary said he couldnt run properly and lost d final games to fatigue.

im just excited to see him matching players of Haas n Nieminen's calibre. fitness level n maybe nerves caused d cramps so once these areas r improved, wangy can be more consistence in winning these level of matches!

yeah, i like his game aswell. its d first thing that caught my attention whn i first saw him play against roddick. he has a passive nature, but a very aggresive game.

Hi my name is Ali,and I am from Saudi Arabia. I notice that YT Wang, was born in Saudi. i would like to know more about him, but the ATP site has nothing except to say he was born in SA. Does anyone know which city he was born in? I would also appreciate any more bio info you can give me. I also want to support him as I have been to Taiwan many times and like the people there.In fact I like people all over the world. Thanks in advance.

hey Ali, welcome. :) its cool that u support asian tennis players.
i am big fan of his tennis but becos im not taiwanese n dont live there i don't see or hear much news abt him. so like urself i only know general info abt wang, mostly from atp site. although watever i find out i'm likely to post it in here. sry i can't b much of help.

if asian tennis players r to be noticed more they need to make an impact on d sport, i believe its happening but slowly. still lacking elite players from asia(mens tennis) i remember whn para's rise to d top increased my interest for d sport, i was really excited even though i aint thai. hope jimmy's on d same track.

Me too I like people from all continents. The hotel you are talking about is in Dubai. I remember last year they had federer and Agassi pose on the roof and hit a few balls. unfotunately, it's too expensive for me. So back to our topic. Like you I hope that Jimmy will do well inthe tour next year. next year, I will definitely try to go to one of the matches either in thailand or vietnam.

found wang on d entry list, wonder y he would play such a low tier challenger(n its in germany!) at this stage of his carreer. instead of higher level challengers like busan or seoul in korea...not only is their less points/prize money, its far to travel to n his opponents won't giv hime same pressure as bigger names.

d only reason i can think of, is that maybe he wants to get easier match practice in a competition environment. n also get d winning feeling back.

report from east-asian games 2005
Date: 2005-11-04 18:05
Notes: Wang blazes to men's tennis crown

Content: Chinese Taipei's rising tennis star Wang Yeutzuoo underlined his quality with a crushing straight-sets victory over Japan's Toshihide Matsui in the men's singles final on Friday.

The 20-year-old Wang, a semi-finalist at the World University Games in Turkey in August, won 6-1, 6-0 in just 62 minutes at the Tennis Academy Centre Court.

"I knew the strategy of my opponent very well and that's why I could win the gold medal," he said.

"I felt there was some distance between us, but I still have much improvement to make."

Chinese Taipei also beat Japan in the women's doubles final, with Chan Yungjan and Chuang Chiajung defeating Mayumi Yamamoto and Tomoko Yonemura 6-0, 7-5 in 80 minutes.

It was the second gold medal of the Games for Chan, the women's singles champion, and also for Chuang, a mixed doubles champion.

"We have played quite well together and improved as the tournament has gone on," said Chuang.

"I hope we have more chances to play in Macau."

Chinese Taipei won four of the five gold medals in tennis, with Korea taking the other.

another very good article abt wang from http://www.tennishk.org/html/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1054

Wang Yeu-Tzuoo, Chan Yung-Jan captures East Asian Games gold medals
Posted on Saturday, November 05 2005 @ 19:01:16 HKT

Taiwanese number one and top seed, Wang Yeu-Tzuoo, swept to the men's singles gold at the 4th East Asian Games in Macau with a 6-1, 6-0, destruction job on Japanese fourth seed, Toshihide Matsui, in the final, while women's No. 1 seed, Chan Yung-Jan, defeated fellow Taiwanese teammate, Chan Chin-Wei, 6-2, 6-1, to capture the gold medal.

The 20-year-old Wang has had a solid year on the pro circuit, winning two Challenger events and reaching the finals of two others. France's Fabrice Santoro, nicknamed the "Wizard", and former world No. 2, Tommy Haas, were just two of his prized scalps this season. The Chinese Taipei Davis Cupper qualified for Wimbledon last year and faced number two seed, Andy Roddick, in the first round, but was evidently not overawed by the occasion, as the American did not have it all his way in a, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4, victory.

With Paradorn Srichaphan's form gradually tapering off since cracking the Top-10 in May two years ago, and Korean Lee Hyung-Taik unable to breakthrough to the Top-50 after peaking at No. 52 following his win at the Sydney International in 2003, Wang is the player on the rise in Asian tennis.

In an interview with the Beijing Times published earlier today, the Taipei native had indicated he will be playing several more Challengers in Europe before the end of this year and then heading Down Under for the Australian Open in January next year. However, he did say that players from this part of the world was finding it tough to break into the upper echelons of world tennis because of a lack of support, citing that players overseas often possess a helpful support team while players from Asia were often left to themselves to contend with life on the Tour.

Wang Yeu-Tzuoo peaked at No. 93 on the ATP Entry Rankings List just last month.
