    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.

    國際網總認定資格不符 謝淑薇將缺席東奧

    台灣網球一姊謝淑薇,原定是我國東京奧運的奪牌熱門人選,但如今謝淑薇在臉書上透露,確定無法參加延期到明年的東奥。雖然謝淑薇雙打世界排名第一,但今年三月在聯邦盃沒有出賽就離隊,不符合奧運規定的出賽紀錄,因此國際網總認定,謝淑薇資格不符,不能在東奧代表台灣出賽。

    台灣一姐謝淑薇和搭檔史崔可娃,名列法網大會頭號種子,但因為謝淑薇在練習時受傷,影響場上表現在16強止步,法網已經無緣爭冠。謝淑薇現在又在臉書上透露,收到了國際網總的發文,因為資格不符,謝淑薇確定無法參加延期到明年的東京奧運。

    謝淑薇在發文中,直接提到"聯邦盃的差錯",因為資格不符的起因,主要就在於今年三月,謝淑薇雖然名列台灣隊陣容,參加在杜拜舉行的聯邦盃,卻一場比賽沒打就離隊。

    當時謝淑薇曾po文表示,比賽之前就曾告知教練,必須提早離隊,還附上對話紀錄,認為自己並非"突然離隊"。

    目前謝淑薇的單打排名是第66,女雙則是排名第一。根據東京奧運參賽辦法,雙打前10名就能獲得參賽資格,不過選手必須在奧運週期,至少參加兩站台維斯盃和聯邦盃,國際網總經過會議後討論決議,謝淑薇雖然排名資格達標,但沒有至少出賽兩次的聯邦盃的紀錄,因此確定明年謝淑薇,不能代表台灣參加東京奧運,也造成了明年東奧台灣損失一名有望奪牌的戰將。
