Additional information

OVERSEAS TRAINING
The facilities and resources in Taiwan better suit her training as a singles player. "There’s no singles program in Melbourne in the national squad – they are more focused on doubles – so that’s why I went to Taiwan for training because they have more resources. They have fitness trainers, physio, sports massage and coaches, ex-Olympians that can help me with training – so that’s why I go. With my Asian background I can access that and my friends help me too." (sbs.com.au, 8 Aug 2016)


MOVE TO AUSTRALIA
Her family moved from Taiwan to Australia when she was 11 years old. (sbs.com.au, 8 Aug 2016)
