My Chinese Tennis Players


Now, for a little heritage pride. For the first time ever, two Chinese women are in the quarterfinals at a tennis Grandslam. Sure, there are two Americans, three Russians as well.. but this is unprecedented. While Li Na, the 16th ranked player in the world, has a tough order in front of her having to face Venus Williams in the next round, unranked Jie Zheng has more than a shot to advance into the semifinals with a fellow unranked Maria Kirilenko as her foe. Best of luck to both women. (AO)
