Tennis: Yan Zi in Toronto

Posted in Tennis at 8:16 am by Nicole

Yan Zi, one-half of the stellar Chinese women’s doubles team that won the 2006 Australian Open and Wimbledon, had a great week in Toronto at the Sony Ericsson WTA Rogers Masters tournament. She went through the qualifying round, and then upset Ana Ivanovic (who won the East West Bank Classic in Los Angeles a week ago) and Wimbledon finalist Marion Bartoli in the main draw. She lost in the semis to Justine Henin, but what a great ride for a player with awesome groundstrokes and a fun, bubbly spirit (she’s a great English speaker as well).
