Who is Di Wu? And why should you care that he’s playing in the 2013 Australian Open?

Wu is the 183rd ranked tennis player in the world, and he’s the first Chinese male to play in the main draw in Australia’s Grand Slam event. Unless you have one of those satellite services that lets you see every match you might not even have an opportunity to watch him play, and even if you do it might be a case of ‘blink and you’ll miss him’ – but his involvement alone is a huge step toward the wearing of pants by men in the Chinese tennis family (you probably need to read this older post to understand what I’m talking about there).
