It is the Asian version of the Olympics, held every 4 years.

If I remember correctly, the 2002 winner was Hyung-Taik Lee, with the silver going to Paradorn.

You'd obviously expect a Lee-Srichaphan final, but you never know with Udomchoke. He's threatened some much higher ranked opponents this year, including Nalbandian and Haas. He's also just won the Challenger in Busan.

Paradorn has to undergo surgery on his wrist. I hope it's not too bad.

The 2006 tournament will definitely be interesting.
Compared to previous years, the depth of Asian tennis has really grown (both on the ATP and WTA).

Previously, Asia really had only Paradorn as a stand-out (with Paes/Bhupathi as the only competitors in doubles) but now a lot of guys have a chance of actually winning this.

Here's my take on the contenders:
- There's still Shrichaphan of course, but Thailand also has a decent shot of a medal with Udomchoke.

- Hyung Taik-Lee is playing the best tennis of his career (at such a relatively old age, I might add) and for some reason, I'd rank him above Srichaphan to get the gold this year.

- India has a lot of young prospects, especially Bopanna, who might snag a bronze if he has a good draw (although unlikely).

- I was really impressed with Takao Suzuki's play in Tokyo, especially in his match against Federer, and I'll put him as a darkhouse for this tournament (could get a silver).

- Taiwanese players Lu Yen-Hsun and Wang Yeu-Tzoo could also be spoilers, although I really can't forsee him snagging a medal.

- Cecil Mamiit, while definitely past his prime, could pull off an upset and possibly give the Philippines a bronze.

Anyone else I forgot?

Prospects to get gold: Lee, Srichaphan
Prospects to get silver: Suzuki, Udomchoke
Prospects to get bronze: Mamiit, Bopanna, Wang

I think Udomchoke or Hyung Taik-Lee will win.

Udomchoke's in a very good from.He just won the chalenger tournament last week at South Korea (moved to rank 80th) and def Haas in Davis Cup this year.

Paradorn has a problem with his wrist so i think he won't win.

Are the women at the asian games too?

Maybe that little dynamo Mirza willl win...

My man Yen-Hsun (Rendy) Lu has been playing well lately and I think he has a good shot at the Gold.

Obviously, Paradorn has the most talent, out of all of the players. Danai has been playing well, too. Lee can always pull a trigger at any given time. Since Rendy is an acquaintance of mine, I'll be supporting him all the way.

I think Srichaphan and Lee have to be considered the favorites, but Who, no doubt, is a red-hot contender for that bronze medal! ;)
