The Moment of Recognition Or Curse for Sun Yu . For Sun Yu to face the two times World Champion, the WR#2, seeded #2 and the most touted ascending star in the baddy world, Carolina Marin, so early in the very first round of this SSP, can be the long awaited moment of truth, moment of recognition and reaffirmation that after all she's still able to deal with the highly praised star today, that she still possesses her value... for their last match was done long ago, in November 2014. Or, simply a confirmation that now there's a clear line separating the two. And just another curse of bad draw for her. For Marin, this encounter in the European soil is more conducive, a more suitable climate and better support at court from the spectators, a more feel home atmosphere, and at an occasion where her play is heading toward her peak. Nonetheless, I deem the draw in Denmark SSP is much better for Sun Yu than in the many previous occasions, whereas she had to face any of her senior compatriots prematurely in the first or second round! Here her real hurdle is the R1; if she makes it then she has easier path to go.
