Name: Zheng Jie

Hails from: China

Occupation: Tennis player

Known for: At this year’s Wimbledon, beating number one-ranked player Ana Ivanovic in a straight-set upset as a wild card-entry (24 year-old Zheng was ranked 133 in the world); becoming the only wild card in the Open era and the only Chinese woman to ever reach the semifinals (where she lost to Serena Williams); winning the 2006 Wimbledon doubles title, dazzling crowds with her gorgeous backhand, reprzenting the little people (at 5’4″) in a sport of Amazons, saving face for Chinese tennis.

Thanks, Dajaja and Ken!
