The State of Asian Tennis (2017)

This is an analysis of Asian women’s tennis on the pro circuit.  It is taking into account their rankings and their prospects for success coming up.

In the present day, there are A LOT of skilled tennis players from China, Japan, and Tai-pei (Taiwan also).  It is hard to ignore their depth of talent.  Personally, when I was watching this year’s Australian Open I was impressed by the sheer number of players from Asia that were playing and winning.  Little known YingYing Duan made it to the third round and lost to Venus Williams (Venus destroyed her).  It really showed to me that China had arrived on the world stage of tennis.  Obviously, it kind of already did when you had Li Na winning a few years back but that was only one player.  Now there are multiple players.  Keep in mind they are not battling to win the tournament but they are in the tournament and making their presence known.

The Asian powerhouse is going to keep on coming.  Be on the lookout for them in the next 3 grand slams of this year.  The absolute biggest prospect is Naomi Osaka due to her power-tennis-big-time-winner-heavy game.  Osaka has a strong serve with a BIG forehand and a backhand that can also hit winners from anywhere.  When she is on she is very dangerous but it is hard to say if she has the mental toughness built up to finish off the Top 10 players.

It makes sense that Asia would eventually produce players due to the sheer size of their population.  It used to be that women’s tennis was dominated by Americans and Russians and Spaniards.  There has been a shift.  The women’s game is very diverse right now in terms of countries.  Sharapova has returned to the game so she is a dangerous player to keep in mind.  One thing to factor now to any major is that the Asian players are dangerous.   Case and point, Shuai Zhang, people were not expecting much from her and she just had a huge cinderella run in Australia.

Here are the players:

Shuai Zhang 31 in the world, China

Shuai Peng, 38 in the world, China (she plays two-hands on both sides)

Naomi Osaka, 19 years old, 47 in the world, Japan  (Best prospect for rising up into the top 20)

MISAKI DOI, 52 in the world, Lefty and good counter-puncher, Japan

Qiang Wang, 57 in the world, China

YingYing DUAN, 61 in the world, China

SaiSai Zheng, 67 in the world, China

Risa Ozaki, 72 in the world, China

Nao Hibino, 81 in the world, Japan

Kurumi Nara, 97 in the world, Japan

 

And the list goes on with players outside the top 100 as well.  ALSO, there are the CHAN SISTERS.  Team Chan/Chan is a VERY good doubles team.

That is 10 players in the top 100.  It is hard to say how big of an impact the Asian Tennis Force will have at the French Open.  The Asian players will most likely be much more dangerous at Wimbledon (Osaka) and at the US Open (look out for Osaka there as well).  Also, Side note, at Wimbledon be on the lookout for Pironkova from Bulgaria who is beautiful but also an extremely crafty grass court player.

Feel free to comment.  Me, personally, I am very interested to see how the Asian contingent will progress and if China/Japan/Taiwan/Thailand will continue to bring up professional tennis talent.

Thank you!

The Omnipotent God

One key thing to understand is that God is all-seeing and all-knowing.  HE knew I was going to write this post before I wrote it and he did not strike me down.  I feel #blessed that I am still alive to write this post and the almighty lord of everything did not destroy me with his might.

DJ ROBO BISCUIT takes offense to the idea of God as well as Organized Religion as a whole.  The Biscuit shows some love to eastern religions but The Wise Biscuit is a truer defender of “forethought” as well as “skepticism.”

IF God is all-powerful then whey does he not destroy evil?

IF God is all-seeing and all-knowing why did he not alert the American Christians about the incoming attack on Pearl Harbor?

IF God is all-powerful then why did he not destroy the Nazis?  Also, why did he allow so many Jewish people to get slaughtered?

Another hypothetical, if in the world there were only 1000 Christians and they were in a jihad (holy war) against one million Satanists, then … would God step in and destroy the Satan-worshippers?

Or in theory, if there were only a handful of Christians left and they were in danger of death, would God step in to save their lives?

Does God also love the Ku Klux Klan?     It seems the KKK is full of God and full of wrath but does God like them?

If God is all-seeing and all-knowing and all-powerful then why does he not step in and kill men who are serial killers before these man commit any crimes?

Essentially why does God allow tragedy to occur if HE is so powerful?

Also, furthermore, if God is all-powerful and all-knowing then why do people need to donate money at Church?  Can’t God just conjure (summon) money to the Church?

Yoshi Nishioka is a Winning Machine!!!

He is at this moment sitting at his career high ranking of 58 in the world.  Top 60!!!

He just beat Tomas Berdych in Indian Wells!

The lefty from Japan had to knockOut the talented Swede Elias Ymer and

then he had to defeat the big serving Dr Ivo Karlovic (The Ace Machine) and

Now he has defeated the Czech Terminator Berdych!

Nishioka is lefty and he is a scrappy-grinder kind of player who just battles and battles to win.  He hits lefty kick and lefty slice serves and he hits reverse forehands and hooks.  He is like a less-powerful Nadal.

I hope Nishioka can knock out Wawrinka!!!  That would be a huge upset!

I have a feeling that Wawrinka came will be too powerful but sometimes Wawrinka has “off” days and Nishioka can win if he is feeling good and “playing hot”

Good job to the young man from Japan!

Final Chapter Continued

Dave sits down.

The manager sits down.

“I just don’t get it.  I don’t understand why the numbers are so low.”  The manager says and looks at Dave.

“I am going to quit.” Dave says a little bit shakily.

“You are going to quit?”  The manager asks.

“Yes.  The job is just stupid now.  I can not make the 90 calls a day.  We are no longer performing the job of an inside sales rep we are just telemarketing.”  Dave said.

“If you want to quit that is up to you.”  The manager said.

TO BE CONTINUED …

UnNamed Dave – Final Chapter (End)

Dave was working at his desk.  He was excited.  He was having some success.  The customers were interested.  He could feel that sales were about to come in.  He had used his energy to talk to prospects who were more likely to purchase.

But, his call numbers were lower than what they were supposed to be at that certain time of day.  His manager and the Sales Director were expecting 40 calls and Dave only had 20 calls.

He received an email.

“Dave,

These call numbers are not acceptable.  By this time of day there should be 35 calls at a minimum.  I can not understand why your numbers are so low.  We are going to have a meeting later today where we discuss how we will fix this.  I need a written plan from you.  Nevertheless, by the end of the day I should see 90 calls.

Thanks,

Manager.”

Dave read the email.  He was upset.  The organization did not care about the quality of the calls, they only cared about the quantity.  They just wanted to see the number.  Something they could measure and quantify.  Dave sat there and contemplated his life.  He knew he could no longer keep his sanity and continue working at ComboTech.

He used the Company Skype and contacted his manager.  “May I speak to you privately?”

The Manager responded, “Sure.”

Dave’s heart was beating fast.  He thinks that maybe his fight-or-flight response was triggered …

His manager stood up from the desk and moved towards an open meeting room.
