I follow the Hopes group, i can follow the locals a little easier than the Americans for obvious reasons...

So i am starting this thread in Hopes that someone knows and can update their progress or lack of...

many thanks in advance.

Please feel free to add your own "Hopes" queries along the same format.

Hopes #1

This is what this thread is for...i am familiar with most of the Canadian Hopes but very little of to just a few American Hopes.

What i have found though, is very to no interest at all for the Hopes by the average club player....there is a reason they are called "Hopes".

This group i am posting is actually from 2015 at PanAm Markham, quite a few attended this time around because of a big push to get more kids into the national system...prior years like 2012... just a handful were tossed into the Junior/Cadet arena with no clear separation of  a Hopes category.

Rachel and Nikhil are the two from this group out of the Americans who have been doing well...i didn't get a chance to talk to many of them as i said before the group was quite significant from both countries.

I just thought it would be nice to see how they are doing or not now.

I understand - but my point was that it is incredibly difficult to figure out who 'they' even are in these pictures. If all you have in a post is a picture of some kid playing TT - may be worth telling it to forum members: "I don't know who that even is, can anyone help?". I think also telling us where it was taken would be very useful.   

It's very different from just asking 'what is Rachel Sung up to these days?'...

Where is she now like the photo she faded away in the background while her brother gets all the spotlight...she should be done with school (Molecular Environmental Biology) by now...what's she up to now? For those that need a name, "Prachi Jha"  ;)

What's the "Wangster" been up to since dropping out of National competition...probably one of the best up and coming talent on American soil imho.

Tonight, September 27, 2019, I just saw the (taller) Tiffany at the MDTTC in Maryland, training with her brother Roy.

Thanks,

No, she stopped playing, just as her older sister did.

Thank you.

I would have thought she might have been in for longer as she would occasionally train in China. I didn't know she had an older sister in the sport...not Tina?
I always look forward to seeing players return and how much they've improved but for whatever reasons many promising players leave the sport, such is "life".
