Tennis player Hsieh Su-Wei (left) becomes the first Taiwanese to win a grand slam (tennis) title after winning the Wimbledon women’s doubles on Saturday with Chinese partner Peng Shuai.
The duo – which were born just four days apart in 1986 – has been playing tennis together since early teens. They split after turning pro before reunited again in 2008. Quite a fairy tale.
The fact that the success is formed between two players from China and Taiwan (which are in an ambiguous relationship) has prompted some side stories and awkward moments. Let’s hope the duo won’t split again because of politics.
