The 19 year old Siming became a overnight sensation when she won the star studded China Open where she defeated none other than former World Champion Allison Fisher of England in the finals. She then went on to dominate the Philippines Open and came a hair short of her first World Championship Gold when she fell to Ga Young Kim of Korea, who will now join her as a teammate. Many players and experts in the world believe she has the most similar style to a men’s pro game, and many predict she will be an eventual World Champion. Her joining the squad makes Team Asia an ultimate foe that some Asian fans feel to be invincible.
” It is an honor to be chosen for Team Asia. I think the Queens Cup brings more responsibility to me instead of pressure. Although it’s a team effort, I will do my best to win every match. I’m also very glad we are playing 10-Ball which is more skillful”, said Chen.
Siming Chen’s youth and fire will keep the usually stoic Asians more animated and spirited during the Queens Cup
