    Remember the 1st tennis player to ever defect from China - Hu Na. What ever happened to her? I remembered she lost to Chris Evert-Lloyd in the 80's.

    She manages a Panda Express in downtown Cleveland. Kidding, I have no idea what happened to her and I had completely forgotten about her until I saw your post. She did get political asylum here, so hopefully she made a new life for herself and is living in the USA still. Back in those days, if you were from China and you requested political asylum it was a rubber stamp, you got in no matter what. It's an interesting commentary on how politics has and continues to influence our immigration laws.

    Apparently, she has her tennis club in Taiwan, and is the tennis commentator for "STAR TV."

    It appears to be a tennis club in Taiwan.
