"I'm very honored to be nominated for the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Tennis' history in China is still young, and it's been a privilege for me to be part of the sport becoming so popular there. I've loved to see so many young people get involved, and to see more of a presence from China on the tours. To be considered to be in the Hall of Fame alongside some of the best players in tennis history is a great honor for me and my country. I'm very proud and I am grateful for the nomination."
