Zeng Siwei born 2/26/1997, now 17 years old, has apparently switched to playing doubles, mixed and men's. Who knows, we might see him playing singles again in future; his net play is not bad, able to match Son WH's, the much more experienced, world class player.
In that 2013 CHN Masters SS, he, 16 years old at the time, was able to take a set off SWH, no mean feat. Too bad, the video only shows the 3rd set from, 7-5 onward.
Zheng Siwei has been in the top three singles players in the U17 group together with Shi Yuqi and Lin Guipu. I feel he has a the right physique for singles and can be v good because he has a very strong smash as well as the other strokes. He won the asian junior doubles championships with H Kaisiang this year. Would like to see him in singles as he has potential. The problem is that he has shown success in the doubles and there are many other MS players coming through. so his path for the future may be set as there is a need for doubles. Sad
