[quote user="CROUCHING TIGER"]There will be more and more Laura's in the future. Since last year the Brits installed a special "youthprogram" with the former Belgian Fed-topcoach at the head. In a few years his young pupils will swarm out over the international tenniscourts. Patience Dee, they're on the highway[H][/quote] Tell me, Dee, was i wright or wrong? What do they think 'bout those "new" names in female tennis? Be honest if u please; thanx.[H]

I'll take her down


She was joking, but she wasn't.

Taipei is a city--also the "province" of Taiwan/Formosa, the "other China" of the Koumintang.


Whatever.  Hseih is Chinese.
