What about Bjorn Phau? Isn't he part Cambodian or something? He demolished Jeff Morrison in his 1st Round match. I know he's German, but...

Paradorn looked spectacular in his match vs. Acasuso.

My mistake...Phau is part Indonesian. He is a small guy but he plays very well, with great accuracy and a big heart.

i love paradorn

Phau vs Srichaphan would be pleasing to watch. Come on Phau, show that players with ponytails can't play tennis.

Phau is mixed, his father comes from Indonesia, and his mama is German, i saw him 2 years ago in shanghai, he was with his gf, a blonde. He was very kind to everyone one.

I don't like Paes, even he is an asian player, coz he was very rude to Wayne Arthurs when he was in shanghai. and that time i was in the court, the audiences were all supported Paes....ehh...

I think Phau is still in the Men's Doubles, with Peya.

they r too, thz for picking that up.
sometimes i just scaned the initial of d country next to the players name so i missed those who arn't playing for an asian country.
