Tennis ace Hsieh Su-wei reveals intentions to play for Taiwan at Paris Olympics

2024-01-31

Fresh from winning both women’s doubles and mixed doubles at the Australian Open, Taiwan’s tennis ace Hsieh Su-wei made a bombshell announcement Tuesday evening on social media. The athlete announced her intention to represent Taiwan at the Paris Olympics this summer. The news has caused quite a stir among her fans, given Hsieh’s turbulent history with Taiwan’s Olympic committee.

Back in 2016, Hsieh withdrew from the national team shortly before the Rio Olympics, alleging unfair treatment by the Chinese Taipei Tennis Association. She pledged to never play for the national team, after the vice chair of Taiwan’s Olympic committee reportedly pounded a table and hollered at her during a meeting. Hsieh did end up rejoining the national team for the Billie Jean King Cup last year. She later said that every day at the tournament was a nightmare.

謝淑薇宣布出戰巴黎奧運 與網協矛盾待化解

2024-01-31

台灣網球一姊謝淑薇在澳網拿下兩座冠軍盃之後,周二晚間在臉書宣布,要代表台灣出戰巴黎奧運,讓許多球迷感到振奮,但其實過去她參加奧運或是打國家隊的過程總是風波不斷,和網協、奧會等相關單位長年來的心結,恐怕必須先想辦法化解。

2016年里約奧運前夕,因為質疑網協選訓制度公正性,謝淑薇退出奧運代表隊,還在討論時遭到時任奧會副主席蔡賜爵拍桌,決定永不接受國家隊徵召。雖然在2023年7月的金恩盃,謝淑薇又再度披上國家隊戰袍,但賽後透過臉書發文,表示忍著傷參加比賽,控訴「金恩杯每天都像是一場新的惡夢」。
