Paradorn Srichaphan, nickname ”Ball” born 1979 in Bangkok and is the highest ranked player from Thailand. He is currently on 57th place. In 2003 he was featured on the over of Times as one of Asians heros.
Unfortunately he had to stop playing at the Australian Open because of a right wrist tendinitis . It must have been hard for him to stop playing and I hope that he heals well and can continue playing tennis.
Danai Udomchoke born 1981 in Bangkok made it into the 3rd rounds at the Australian Open. This was the first time he played at Australian Opens and made it into the 3rd rounds !
