Orange Wombat:





Asia is a continent underrepresented in tennis, though improving  :) I thought since we had an Italian player thread, we should have one for Asia which makes up 60% of world's population. Of course, most relatively well-off Asians (like me) are too busy succeeding in life to pay attention to tennis  :\

Anyway, here are some notable Asian tennis players. I don't really count Kazakhstan because all their tennis players are just Russians who play for Kazakhstan for the money  :rofl_2:

Kei "Samurai" Nishikori

Go Soeda (Go Soeda!)

Somdev Devvarman (Indian Monfils)

Di Wu (funny little guy)

Ze Zhang (Inconsistent big guy)

Denis Istomin, if you count Uzbekistan as Asian and not European

Tatsuma "Dragon" Ito

Yuichi Sugita

Prakash Amritraj (son of tennis and movie star)

Sanam Singh (rising youngster)

Nam Ji Sung

Yen-Hsun Lu (challenger and grand slam vulture)

Tsung Hua Yang (insanely talented, search on youtube)

Danai Udomchoke (more like You do choke  :Confused:)

Leander Paes (IMO he's an idiot)

Mahesh Bhupati

Aisam Ul-Haq Qureshi

Honorable Retiree: Paradorn Srichapan the contortionist.


And on the women's side of course- Li Na :thumbs-up: Peng Shuai, etc

Did I miss anyone notable?

I miss Paradorn Srichaphan, he was an entertaining player.
Why don't you like Paes?

best luck to Asian players  :). I have many Asian friends who love tennis, here in Canada. I really hope that China could 'produce' a great champion one day  :)), talking about mens tennis btw. Li Na made it already.

How could you miss Yen-Hsun Lu??!
