    He lost to Roddick and Guga in two pretty close matches so he must be doing something right. He was kind of unlucky to draw Roddick and Guga on the first round but nevertheless the result was surprisingly close. Is he a S/Ver, baseliner or allcourt player? What are his strength and weakness? Is he going to be a threat to Federer :lol:? Thanks

    I'm guessing he's an Asian player!

    Haven't watched him play yet so I can't comment on his strengths and weaknesses.. However threat to Fed?? I think it would be very very very unlikely. Maybe in table tennis :).

    Yen-Hsun Lu is teh guy who lost to Guga last night and is the first Taiwanese player in the top 100.

    Yeu-Tzuo (Jimmy) Wang was the guy who lost to Roddick in Wimbledon.

    They have pretty similar games. Lu is a little bigger and stronger and has better results so far but Wang is also talented as well and was a better junior.

    Of all the great players from provincial China, Lu is one of the best. He should threaten Pete's slam record in a few years.
