Tennis Scoops I Learned This Weekend

Driving eight hours in a car from NJ to The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia with my teammates was educational in that I learned some interesting facts about Chinese players not generally known by the American media.

First, remember the player Hu Na? She defected to America from China at age 21, in her second day in California during a Fed Cup event. She fled her hotel room and sought refuge with friends, based on fear of retribution for her refusal to join the Chinese Communist Party.

After receiving political asylum Na played professional tennis for the United States. She trained for a time in Bradenton, Florida at Bollettieri Academy. Her total won/loss record in the WTA was 75-97 in singles and 45-67 in doubles. Na won a WTA doubles title in Schenectady, NY with Michelle Jaggard-Lai in 1989. She retired from professional play in 1991 because of accumulated injuries at age 28. Her highest singles ranking was 48. After her tennis career, Na relocated in Taiwan and worked as an ESPN tennis commentator. She established the Hu Na Bitan Tennis Club in Taipei, which later produced the Taiwanese star and future WTA world no. 1 in doubles Su-Wei Hsieh.

An interesting event altered Na’s life in 2011. She had a dream which she interpreted as a divine message for her to start painting. She became a professional painter/artist of considerable talent. Her work resembles the quality of Vincent Van Gogh. Over the span of six years Na created over four hundred paintings. In November 2012, she showcased her artwork in her first oil painting exhibition. Five years later Na exhibited the “Hu Na Lotus Sutra Oil Painting Collection World Tour.” (video below)

When 17 year old Chinese American boy wonder Michael Chang won Roland Garros in 1989 with his sensational five set win vs Stefan Edberg he had no agent. The Chang family elected to bypass hiring an agent to handle business opportunities and decided to assign mother Betty Chang to try her hand at attracting lucrative business deals with American companies to endorse her son, the youngest winner of a Grand Slam title in history, to expland into the opening Chinese marketplace. Betty Chang proved to be only ordinary at the endeavor, only managing to sign one deal for her son in China – with shampoo company Head & Shoulders. A far cry less than the multi-million dollar Japanese contracts Kei Nishikori and his IMG agent have been able to secure. (Chang did sign with Nissin noodles in 1989, and later Panasonic and Longines in the 90s, Nuprin in 1991, Discover Card in 1996 but those were American market deals.)

Chang never was able to win another Grand Slam though he did reach three other finals – US Open, Australian Open and another Roland Garros and no. 2 in the ATP rankings – but overall he did quite well for himself, earning over $19 million in prize money not counting endorsement deals, exhibition earnings and contract bonuses.

Yan Zi and Zheng Jie were the first Chinese players to win a Wimbledon title, winning doubles in 2006 vs. Virgina Ruano Pascual and Paola Suarez 63 36 62. Zi later married a wealthy businessman and takes care of their two children.

    Interesting about Hu Na. I vaguely remember her. Hope she’s happy as an artist now. Is she still painting today?

    Oh, I just wanted to mention this too. Concerning the election, it’s still far from over. Do you remember when most of the media announced Gore as the winner back in 2000? And then we didn’t find out that Bush won until about 5 weeks later? So, the media announcing Biden as the winner means almost nothing—they don’t certify the election.

    Trump is going to fight these “results” tooth and nail, and I think we may be in for some big surprises in the next few weeks. So, let’s just sit back and see what unfolds.

    Sam yes i believe she is still painting and her work is excellent. Yes Trump won the election but derp state cheating stole it. There is massive overwhelming evidence of cheating ballot fraud and even software reversing votes to Biden. Imbecile Biden even boasted about demonrats massive voter fraud scheme in play on oct. 24th. Trump will win again.

  • Scoop Malinowski · November 7, 2020 at 11:28 pm

    “We have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” – Joe Biden Oct. 2th 2020.

  • Sam · November 8, 2020 at 8:43 am

    Wow, Biden’s comment speaks volumes, Scoop! Yep, their cheating was unparalleled. I heard one guy say that it was enough to make even Saddam Hussein blush!!

    Yes, I think they were so brazen about it that it’s definitely going to come to light—or at least enough of it reverse the fraudulent results. The thing for us to do in the meantime is tune out all the fake news and brainwashed individuals who think Biden won. And thank goodness that Amy Coney Barrett is on the Supreme Court now!

    Sam…
    Donald Trump Has Still Won the 2020 Election

    by James Buchanan

    The battle for the 2020 election is being fought in the courts, which have the power to order all new state elections in any states, which have massive signs of vote fraud like Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Pennsylvania.

    A PBS article reports “Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has ordered county elections officials in Pennsylvania to keep separate mail-in ballots that arrived after Election Day. The state’s top elections official already had ordered those ballots be kept apart.”

    “The order came Friday night in response to a plea from the state Republican Party…”

    “Alito, acting on his own, said he was motivated in part by the Republicans’ assertion that they can’t be sure elections officials are complying with guidance issued by Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat.”

    “The justice handles emergency appeals from Pennsylvania. He ordered a response from the state by Saturday afternoon and said he has referred the matter to the full court for further action.”

    “The order is related to an ongoing Republican appeal to the Supreme Court to try to keep ballots received in the mail after Election Day from being counted…”

    Pennsylvania has a law that declares that all ballots must be received by 8pm Election Day. Activist liberal judges on the state supreme court have tried to change that law to allow a three day extension, but only the legislature, which is controlled by Republicans has the authority to change the law to something else.

    The legal argument for Pennsylvania is pretty solid, which is why Justice Alito has ordered the late ballots to be kept separate. Trump was winning Pennsylvania (and most of the other swing states) on election eve. If the Pennsylvania law is upheld, Trump wins Pennsylvania, and Trump’s lawyers can move onto the stolen states: Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia.

    A video by a poll watcher in Michigan showed several Black people carrying pieces of luggage and other large containers that were likely carrying fraudulent ballots in the middle of the night.

    In Georgia, a very large number of ballots had votes for Joe Biden only. Ballots with votes for only the presidential candidate rarely happen. The vast majority of people will vote on other contests on the ballot. The most plausible explanation for why Biden got the only vote is that the Democrats came up a few hundred thousand ballots short, and they had to expedite their vote fraud by only filling out the Biden circle so they could get enough votes to steal the election quickly enough.

    In several swing states, Democrat officials at some polling stations blocked poll watchers from watching the vote counting. Eventually a court (probably the Supreme Court) will rule that the elections in those states will have to be redone minus the fraud and blocked poll watchers.

    Joe Biden is not going to steal the 2020 election no matter how much the liberal media, and the Judas news network, also known as Fox News, may claim otherwise.

  • Sam · November 10, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    Thanks for the article, Scoop. That’s the spirit—we have to keep fighting!!!

    I read the quote below elsewhere on the Web and just wanted to share it:

    “The Bush/Gore recount and court battle took 37 days! Be patient. This is only day 6… it’s just 6 days into the process. The premature celebration on the Left is a cause of concern because they will melt down in the coming days.”

    Imagine the upcoming meltdown for the Left when everything falls apart—a sight for sore eyes!!! 🙂

  • Scoop Malinowski · November 10, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    Sam the massive cheating and vote fraud and vote stealing is overwhelming, these traitors will all be exposed and pay the price. The punishment for treason is execution. These demonrats were caught red handed this time. Their media terrorists will not be able to cover this one up like they did 911, Vegas, JFK, Sandy Hook, uss liberty, etc.

  • Sam · November 11, 2020 at 6:39 am

    Yes, Scoop, I think they were getting overconfident and overplayed their hand. We just have to wait patiently (and courageously) for the truth to come out—and possibly contact our state legislators as well. Of course, it’s very frustrating and victory won’t come easy, but I believe truth and justice are going to win.

    He who laughs last, laughs best.

  • Scoop Malinowski · November 11, 2020 at 7:37 am

    Sam. There is no way out this time for demonrats. They were very sloppy this time with their corruption and treason. Their media jackals will not cover this up.

  • Scoop Malinowski · November 12, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    They’ll hang for this treason.

    CAUGHT! Election data analyzed, producing detailed list of over 500,000 votes SWITCHED from Trump to Biden via voting machine software theft, with heavy fraud focused on swing states

    An analysis of the raw voting data dumps from the 2020 election … reveals bombshell news. It appears that hundreds of thousands of votes were switched from Trump to Biden via the software control systems of the voting machines. This was done in real time, during election night, which also explains why election counting was slowed in swing states in order to allow the election theft to be coordinated and executed. PedeInspector explains how he wrote a script to detail all the instances of votes being lost or switched from Trump to Biden.The author also claims that the data is from Edison Research and it is the same data that is used for election coverage by at least ABC News, CBS News, CNN and NBC News. It is also used for the website of the NYT, and probably others as well.

    Rudy Giuliani confirms that Dominion software people are stepping forward as whistleblowers In yet more shocking news that will change the course of history, Rudy Giuliani has now confirmed, during a live broadcast with Steve Bannon’s “Warroom” program, that Dominion software witnesses are stepping forward and blowing the whistle on the massive vote theft fraud:

    The demonrat communist coup to steal the election from Donald Trump has failed. Heads are about to roll for treason. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRiB6pO1G9s&feature=emb_title

  • Scoop Malinowski · November 14, 2020 at 10:18 am

    This is a huge coordinated coup against President Trump, and America. It’s terrifying, because it’s the Chinese communist party, our msm news outlets, Democrats, a few Republicans, parts of our FBI, CIA, Governors, and more. Mostly I blame the propaganda news outlets, because they are the reason that they were able to do this to all of us. They brainwashed American people, and they are supporting the people who are doing this to America.

  • Sam · November 14, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    Scoop, thanks for your encouraging posts. Any news outlet that speaks of a “President-elect” is LYING. At this point, there is no President-elect, because the states haven’t been certified. So much is yet to come. Like you, I believe the attempted coup has failed, and justice will come.

  • Scoop Malinowski · November 14, 2020 at 5:28 pm

    Sam, this is it. This election is of paramount importance. If we let the communists demonrats steal this election via their evil voter fraud cheating rigged machines, there will never be another fair election again after this. Every president will be a puppet and under total control. They can’t control Trump thus they hate him, fear him, must get rid of him by any means necessary. But we are awake now and the fight has just begun.
