The CSB in LA

Posted in Tennis at 3:30 pm by Nicole

The China Sports Blog visits Los Angeles this week for the East West Bank Classic, a Tier II event on the Sony Ericsson Women’s Tennis Association tour. Among the Chinese athletes competing here are Li Na, Peng Shuai, Sun Tiantian and Yan Zi. Li Na came in to the media tent near the side courts with her left thigh wrapped tightly, but she looks healthy and happy and ready to compete. The Chinese media, as always, are out in force: Li was surrounded by them at her interview table this afternoon, looking a little bewildered by all the attention. Peng Shuai held court in a relaxed and thoroughly bubbly and fun manner – and took tons of questions from the Chinese journalists about her coaching relationship with Michael Chang. More to come as the week goes on.
