    I spoke to him at the Junior US Open. Really kind. I got to see him play as well. He may get overpowered, but his consitancy and patience gets him through .

    No video clips from what I have seen . Maybe youtube should have a clip or two possbily. I think he lacks some power, like Donald Young and might struggle on the tour. But you never know. Chances are he will be fine .

    I'm afraid you got wrong ...the boy in the clip is actually a six years old junior

    player from Taiwan,who is also considered quite promising,he is not Yang ,

    though . It's a little bit hard to find Yang's clips but I will post it if I find any.

    by the way Yang claims his first 15K singles title in China this week :)

    also ,Taiwan=Chinese Taipei , why it is called Chinese Taipei is just because

    of some political factors.

    It is listed as Chinese Taipei, but actually is not correct, though the
    ITF has not changed it yet. Taipei is the capital of Taiwan, which is a
    separate country from China and whose government is separate from
    China.

    He's even got the knee tape thing going on..

    he's obviously very good, but if i had to critique him, i'd say his serve is timed awkwardly. he seems to hit his serve as his body is losing momentum...dont know if anyone else noticed

    "Chinese Taipei" is the politically correct international name for Taiwan, to pacify the commie Chinese who want to claim it is part of China, hence they want the word "Chinese" in the name, and they do not want the word Taiwan in the name for whatever reason. Most of the world is a bunch of wussies, so they allow Communist China to dictate the name of another country.

    on top of the net, ready to put away an easy volle
    he has one of the most unorthadox first serves I've ever seen in a top junior. Yet it's impossible to deny that he's good.

    I have nothing against the people of China, but the gov't is really f'd up.
    The U.S. kind of has its hands tied when it comes to China, though. China
    owns a lot our debt.

    The current Taiwanese gov't is really f'd up too. The current president's
    political party, the KMT, is one of the most corrupt in the world. When they
    lost power a little while back, they stole massive amounts of resources and
    money before they left office, effectively giving them power to one day
    get back into power since money buys you access, media, and bribery --
    the ability to win elections. There is also a pro-democracy party but
    they also have their own faults and corruption as well, but not
    anywhere close to the KMT. The KMT ruled with a military dictatorship for
    years.

    The political atmosphere in many parts of Asia and southeast Asia is kind of
    nutty. Not as turbulent as certain parts of Africa, but that's probably only
    b/c the standard of living is a bit higher.
