this is great! :woohoo: where did u hear abt this thomas, is there any news on it? i can't find any info from d hopman cup site yet. r they only playing in d play-offs or r they in d main draw?? i hope they r in, we get full coverage of hopman cup cos its held in perth, aust. i was hoping to see more asian teams representing their countries but thought japan n thailand might not play/qualify for 2005-06, didnt think china would qualify yet, it'll b their hopman cup debut.

hahaha i actually thought abt taiwan/china participating in d hopman cup awhile back, but becoz taiwan only hav higher rank male players n china only female players, i thought neither country have a high enuff combine rank to enter. peng sun's rank ard 300s right now but he is the highest rank player from china n i think his ranking can go alot higher if the chinese players r allow more atp tournies internationally.

yeah, Peng Sun has won a few matches at ATP level this year

It is only qualifying :sad: They play the Netherlands.

I wanted Taiwan to be in the draw, Janet Lee and Jimmy Wang, two favourite playesr
Or Japan if it included Shinobu or Aiko
Or Korea even with Yoon-Jeong and Hyung-Taik

But China is good!

I wish Hopman Cup was a larger tournament

IMO Peng Sun's singles match against wessels will be the key match, otherwise it'll be up to d mixed doublez. i hav confidence shuai can win her singles.

hopman cup has begun 2day with d play-off match of CHINA vs NETHERLANDS

was very dissapointed aussie tv decided to skip this match n begin coverage 2moro when the main draw matches begin. which means i didnt get to see them play live, but still hoping they we replay the match later.

wats more dissapointing is that china lost 2-1.

shuai won her singles match in 3 sets :)
Peng Sun lost in straight sets 6-2 6-2 :o
and lost the mixed doubles in 2 sets aswell but it was closer 6-4 6-4 :sad:

Cindy, do you like any other chinese woman players like Zheng Jie, Na Li etc.

I like them all very much but especially I like Ting Li. I hope they will come to Antwerp this year

chewy
01-01-2006, 12:22 PM
cindy, r u sure its confirmed that shuai will hav new coach?
from wat i know, its the chinese tennis federation that made the decision to let her coach go so it wasn't shuai's decision.

cindy, one of ur fav player wayne arthurs injured himself during his match in d hopman cup, he still played the mixed doubles even after he injured himself which was very brave of him. hopefully he recover b4 AO.

chewy
01-01-2006, 07:56 PM
after watching the few games they showed on tv of china vs NED mixed doubles in the playoffs, i think Peng Sun have potential to be top 100 player. he's still ranked in d 300s but if CTF allow him to play more matches internationally i think he can improve not only his ranking but his game alot.

his serve is average in the men's game and not bad for his height. tho not very tall(178cm) he looks physically very fit and built for tennis. but can trim down a tiny bit imo just to get extra court speed which i think he's pretty fast already.
from wat i saw, he seems to have all the shots n can mix things up well, playing smart tennis not just brute power. altho he show that he can hit winners on the run aswell.
Sun's still young, 22yr. hopefully see his rankings go up in 2006. :)

Chewy and THomas:
After the 10th athletic meeting, Peng lost the game, (maybe you heard about that) and her province can't not get the championship, everyone says that Peng should be rapped. after that, Peng said:" I lost the game, it is not only i love lost the title, but also because of me, my province lost the tennis." ( i try my best to translate it, hope you can understand), in fact, China will not put more money on her province for the tennis. and soon, they fired her coach, and she has to train in CHina, I am sure, that's no benefit to her!

Cindy19
01-02-2006, 06:38 AM
wayne arthurs ? oh, i was talking about him with my friends this morning... is he okay now? He is sooo brave!. He should be more careful, coz he is 35 now, not a young guy, i still hope i can see him 10 months later, he should be careful so that he can be shanghai this year (for me) hehe

I read this from the sports news yesterday, the chairman of the CTA (china tennis association) made a speech in a meeting. she censured Peng shuai. she said a lot, i try to translate it:
some tennis players of China, think they are strong enough, and it is the time for them to get rid of the country, Peng shuai is unpatriotic, she thinks she is beautiful, strong, haha, i wanted to ask her, are you sharapova? no, you aren't you are nothing. Your ranking is 30+ but without country you can't achieve! I met her, and talked with her, i said "Peng can you get the Olympic game for China?" she said, "oh Mrs Sun, I am too young, and 2008 is my first time to play Olympic game, you give me pressure.I can't do that." China isn't a rich country, don't like European, one player can have 4-5 coach or official, I try my best to help peng, but she still tell me that the most part of her game prize, but in fact we don't...

well, i think there are a lot of mistakes in my words, anyway, hope you can understand =)
