As the WTA season winds down, there are still a few great tournaments, including this week’s 2012 China Open. I am always amazed at the great reception WTA players…and in golf, LPGA players…receive when they go to play in Asian countries like South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and China. Sometimes I think the LPGA players get a better reception in Asia than they sometimes do in the United States. I remember last year when golfer Paula Creamer received rock star treatment when she went to Taiwan. Similarly, the world’s best female tennis players were welcomed as stars in Japan last week and in Beijing this week. Here are some photos and video featuring Victoria Azarenka, Ana Ivanovic, Maria Sharapova and Samantha Stosur, four of the greatest players in the world at the moment.
