    Her name is Jiang YanJiao. Non seeded , but she won in the qualifying draw. Now she is in the main draw. Her next opponent will be Salakjit Polsana , sister of Boonsak Polsana of Thailand.

    They look the same to me. Grip same, MP99 same, skirt, top same. Face difficult to tell beacause two relaxed and 1 stressed. I would say same though, maybe the image just reversed.

    Bao Looks "cool" when playing.

    Unless she had a nosejob and went to the hairdresser during the tournament I don't think it's the same player. Player 1 nose bends to the right, player 2 to the left :D ; also the hair on player 1 looks more, what's the word, springy/jumpy to me ;)
    Oh yeah, I thought it would probably be a reversed photo as well, however the flag is on the same side and the sponsoring is the same.
    Also face 1 looks longer than face 2 (more round shaped).
    [n then ofcourse it does turn out 2 be the same player :rolleyes: , just waiting for it]

    The first picture is Lu Lan and the second picture is Jiang Yan Jiao. They came to play for the world junior in Richmond, BC last October.

    I find the new Japanese wonder girl, Eriko Hirose to be quite cute, and she looks like a very nice girl. I also like her positive attitude on court as well.

    No, the first picture is Jiang Yan Jiao and the second and third is Lu Lan. I read it in the Chinese Website.

    Can't see clearly the 1st picture, but high probability is Lu Lan. The girl in 2nd and 3rd pictures definitely is not Lu Lan. The link shows you a picture of Jiang Yan Jiao when she played here in BC during the World Juniors Championships.

    Either the Chinese girls don't know their team mates names or the website you are looking switched the names.
