Sun Tiantian served as the head of the Zhengwang competition department.Figure / Zhengzhou Tennis Open WTA Zhengzhou Tennis Open just ended, retired Olympic champion Sun Tiantian once again stepped on the stage to complete the status change from player to service player.Sun Tiantian is the recognized character of “China Golden Flower” and the first of them to get involved in the operation of top professional events.As the director of the competition department of the tournament, Sun Tiantian wants to provide players with a full range of service guarantees, and the details of the competition have become her most important place.During the period of Zheng Net, the intimate butler of the Athens Olympic women’s tennis doubles champion Sun Tiantian was a bit busy recently.On the evening of September 8, Sun Tiantian and Henan Olympic champion Jia Zhanbo ignited the torch of the 11th National Traditional Sports Games.Early the next morning, Sun Tiantian rushed to the Zhongyuan Tennis Center in Chengdong, Zhengzhou. She is the head of the WTA Zhengzhou Tennis Open Competition Department and is responsible for providing services to players.In 2014, Zhengzhou hosted the ITF competition for the first time, and Sun Tiantian, who retired shortly afterwards, became the event director.In the following years, the level of the competition soared all the way until this year the right to host the WTAP700 top-level tournament was obtained.With the growth of the tournament in the past few years, Sun Tiantian has completed the status change from player to service player.”When you play on your own, you are served by everyone.We just need to do a good job of training and play well.Now my job is to serve the players, the roles have to change, and there are more worrying things.”In the past week, the game was interrupted by rain from time to time, and Sun Tiantian and the support team kept busy,” everyone cooperated and there was no complaint.The waiting of the players is not easy, and in the end, they can dedicate a wonderful game to the fans.”As the first batch of professional women’s players in China Women’s Tennis, Sun Tiantian is very clear about the essence of details in professional events.Many times, a few intimate small services can make these professional players who travel all day long feel warm, and can also reflect the intentions of the event organizers.”Be sure to put yourself in the player’s mind. Sometimes the players who come to Zhengzhou for the first time can easily find the training ground?Are training balls, towels and other items well protected?”Sun Tiantian said that some players are in a bad mood after losing the ball. At this time, it is important that she can find the shuttle bus back to the hotel smoothly,” she definitely wants to leave the place quickly. Anyway, we think so after losing the game.Or some players are out early, but she still wants to stay and train, waiting for the next game, we will do our best to ensure the venue service.”This is Sun Tiantian’s first time participating in the WTA top-level event protection and service work. The game has never returned to home before 12 pm.Summing up the operation of this event, Sun Tiantian thanked them one by one from the provincial and municipal governments to the staff, from volunteers, caddy to the media.Talking, she laughed, “I’m kind of like giving an award speech.”After retiring for many years, Sun Tiantian is straightforward and his cheerful personality has not changed.The first year of the game passed smoothly. Sun Tiantian turned his attention to next year. “Next year we will have a standard venue with more than 5,000 people. This is the most basic standard of the WTA.Of course, we are definitely incomparable with China Net and Wu Net’s hardware. We can only try to improve from the soft power to do this service well.”Sun Tiantian participated in the bidding of Zhengwang P700 all the way.Figure / Zhengzhou Tennis Open “Little Flower” tennis environment “too good” In the WTA tournament system, Zhengzhou Open is a one-stop P700 event, ranking second only to the Crown (China Open) and Super Five(Wuhan Open).Before this race, it was the Oakland Open in the United States, but it was no longer held due to funding issues. WTA began to find new host cities around the world, and Zhengzhou participated in the competition for the first time.As the only Grand Slam player in Henan, Sun Tiantian has participated in the bidding process since December last year. She and the team made a presentation at the WTA St. Petersburg headquarters.In every professional game, the player is the absolute owner.Sun Tiantian ‘s job is to tell the various directors of WTA with the identity of a former player. Zhengzhou has the ability to run this game. “It is a concerted effort for everyone to have trust in the city of Zhengzhou.”In February of this year, WTA passed Zhengzhou’s application.The landing of the Zhengzhou Open surrounded the gap of Chinese tennis without the WTA top-level game.Since then, the tennis tournaments in China have covered all levels of the WTA from the Open, Top Class, Super Five, Crown, and year-end finals.Starting from last week’s Zhengzhou and Nanchang Opens, the more than one-month Chinese season officially started, followed by Guangzhou, Wuhan, China Open, Tianjin and other events.At the end of October, the WTA year-end finals will be held in Shenzhen.Such a concentrated scale of events, this is what Sun Tiantian did not dare to think before.At the beginning of professionalization, ITF competitions are basically in China, and the total prize money can reach 50,000 US dollars.Today, high-level professional events are blossoming everywhere, and the total prize money provided in the first year of the Zhengzhou Open is as high as 1.5 million US dollars.Known as the tennis environment where young people are now, Sun Tiantian bluntly stated that “their conditions are not very good, it is simply too good.”In order to save enough Olympic points, Sun Tiantian’s players played abroad for more than 10 months a year.Intensive events also provide a broader platform for young players.This year’s Zhengzhou Tennis Open has given strong support to local players. Four of the six wild cards in the women’s singles qualifying match were given to Chinese players. The teenagers Wang Meiling, Lu Jiajing and You Xiaodi also entered the main game with great enthusiasm.The three wild cards in the race were given to the former world’s first Corbel, and the other two were given to Yang Zhaoxuan and Duan Yingying respectively.”I hope they can expect more opportunities through the opportunities and wild cards provided by these events, and hope that they can seize these opportunities and stabilize them.In Sun Tiantian’s view, these young players can now be exposed to high-level events very early, which is known to women and is very important to be included in the tournament.Last week, Wang Qiang had reached the 12th place in the world. There are 4 Chinese players in the top 60 of WTA. “If I can maintain this status for a long time, and there can be more young players in Chinese tennis, I feel beyondLi Na’s may not be without, just need to give them some time now.”Sun Tiantian won the Tashkent Open Women’s Singles Championship.Picture / Social Media Two daughters, Xiao Ming, collectively called ‘Athena’ after the 2002 Busan Asian Games, Chinese tennis officially started its professionalization process.Li Na, Sun Tiantian, Li Ting, Zheng Jie and Yan Zi became the first players in the Chinese tennis professional to professional transition, known as “Chinese Golden Flower” in history, and later players were called “Little Flower” or “Little Flower”.In the process of professional exploration, Li Na and Sun Tiantian inadvertently created a new era. Their record includes Grand Slam singles, doubles, mixed doubles champions, as well as Olympic gold and bronze medals.These achievements were later difficult to match.Today, “Five Golden Flowers” have been retired one after another, but they have never left tennis.Sun Tiantian is currently the deputy director of Henan Zhongyuan Tennis Center and the first professional player involved in the operation of Jinhuazhong.Li Na has been preparing for the establishment of a tennis school these years. Zheng Jie has launched the youth tournament “Zheng Jie Cup” for the 10th year.Sun Tiantian’s former partner Li Ting is now a teacher of Beijing Sport University, and Yan Zi often appears in some tennis activities.”These of us have never left tennis, and we can often see them in the activities of the Chinese Tennis Association.”Sun Tiantian said that although each of them has a different focus of work, everyone still loves tennis and works in their familiar fields.” We all want to contribute to Chinese tennis. This mood is the same as our original intention.”Now, the” Five Golden Flowers “have all become a family and have children, and the” Second Generation of Nets “can join together to play the Federation Cup in the next few years.Sun Tiantian’s eldest daughter is 7 years old, and her youngest daughter is more than 4 years old.To commemorate the gold medal won at the Athens Olympics, the nickname Sun Tiantian gave her eldest daughter was called “Athens”.Later, with a second child, it was simply called “Nana”.”Athens, Nana, didn’t get used to it at first.Later, I was used to shouting, sometimes one mouth was ‘Athena’, and the two ran over together.”Like Li Na’s husband Jiang Shan and Zheng Jie’s husband Zhang Yu, Sun Tiantian’s husband Zhang Peng is also a tennis player and is now the head coach of the Henan team.Under the influence of such family conflicts, it is almost impossible for children to dislike tennis.”The kid really likes it, but the level is not very good.”Sun Tiantian smiled and said that such a big child is mainly interested in cultivating interest, they will not intervene too much,” as long as you like, no matter what age, you will work hard, we will not force.Of course, you must do this seriously. This is what we demand of them.”Sun Tiantian’s profile was born on October 12, 1981. In 1999, he became a professional player. Total career record: 217 wins and 156 losses. Total career bonus: $ 1.01 million.
