It will be a great match at the US Open lady final tomorrow. Both of these young RisingStars have a similar background. Born in Toronto, Canada, to multiracial parents, both have Asian mothers. Only a few months part, at 18 and 19 years old, they both handle the big moments extremely well that not too many professionals can do. They are calm, cheerful, focused. They dealt with the press well and just were themselves. Not only did they make history at the open, but they both also brought energy, new hopes, and inspiration to the sport. Good for the world of tennis, and I wish both have a great future for many years to come.
