yeah both ti chen n peng sun r in the chinas futures.

btw, the draw was just revealed live on tv in aust.
Our 4 players already in the main draw have been placed against very tough opponents in the first round!!!

Denis istomin plays roger federer :eek:
Hyung-taik lee is also in federer's part of the draw and can meet in 2nd rd!!

Srichaphan plays a seeded player in the openeing round, think it was kiefer, its very tough first round! :(

yeu-tzuoo wang is the luckiest, hes not playing a seeded player in the 1st rd. so hopefully he make the most of that luck of a draw :)

I see in the qualifying event, Asia were not so lucky.

Go Soeda fought valiantly against 5th seed, Austrian Olivier Marach but Marach won 6-7 7-5 6-4. So close :( Kyu-Tae Im also lost but to 30th seed, German Dennis Gremalyer 1-6 4-6. Yen and Udomchoke both won their matches. The suprises of the day came from Norikazu Sugiyama against Dudi Sela. Sugiyama won 6-4 7-5. The other japanese player, Motomura also won his match.

totally agree soeda was at times ahead in the match too even in the last set he was once up 4-3 very good fight but also very unfortunate. i think he's the best japanese player at the moment.
n thx for a brief report thomas!

yeh the results of the japanese players surprised me, but there were like 5 japanese players to start off with 2 left in the final rd.

out of the 11 asian players qualifying only 2 made it thru to main draw.

no surprises that Yen-Hsun Lu(TPE)[21] and Danai Udomchoke(THA)[3] both seeded got thru in the end as they r ranked significantly higher than the rest.
great fight n good job!! :)

also good job getting to final rd r the two japanese players Norikazu Sugiyama n Gouichi Motomura. :) very closed matches but just falling short at the end. :o
