    Tennis ace Hsieh Su-wei deemed ineligible for Tokyo Olympics (2020/10/16)

    Women's doubles World No. 1 Hsieh Su-wei has dropped a bombshell announcement that she will not be competing in the Tokyo Olympics next year. Hsieh said on Facebook that she had filed an appeal to play in the games but lost. The International Tennis Federation ruled that she was not eligible, as she had failed to meet a participation requirement for the Fed Cup.

    Taiwan's Hsieh and Czech partner Barbora Strycova were top seeds for the 2020 French Open. However, they crashed out in the Round of 16, with Hsieh citing an injury sustained in practice. Now Hsieh has more bad news. On Facebook, she said that she received notice from the International Tennis Federation confirming that she was ineligible for the Tokyo Olympics, which are to take place next year.

    In her post, Hsieh said the reason was quote, "a mishap involving the Fed Cup." She said that in March, she was to represent Taiwan in Dubai at the Fed Cup, which has been renamed the Billie Jean King Cup. But she ended up not playing a single match.

    At the time, Hsieh wrote that she informed her coach before the competition that she had to leave. In her post on Facebook, Hsieh attached her conversation with her coach, to emphasize that she had not left without warning.

    Hsieh is currently ranked No. 66 in women's singles and No. 1 in women's doubles. To qualify for Tokyo, a female tennis player must rank within the Top 10 and fulfill a minimum participation requirement in the Fed Cup. After a review of her case, the ITF determined that she was ineligible, as she had not met the Fed Cup requirement. With Hsieh out of the Tokyo Olympics, Taiwan has lost one of its best chances for gold.
