Yuli's students had a great day at the WA state championships.
Many of her young students did exceptionally well playing above their grades.
Bella won the women's open singles proving she is at 15 years of age, the number 1 female player in WA.
Ryan and Romy were 1st and 2nd in the C div singles beating the adults.
Daphne was C div singles winner again beating the adults. Jasmine Tan was 2nd and Alicia 3rd.
This was despite playing with bleeding and swollen foot. What a trooper.
Xiang and Tyzton were 3rd and 4th respectively in the Open singles.
Edward and Xiang were 2nd in th MD Open with Jasper and Kai Chen 3/4.
Angie playing with Eddie Hung was 1st in the XD Open with Bella and Kai Chen 3rd.
Milain and Jason were 3/4 in the A reserve MD.
Angie was 2nd in the A Reserve Singles.
Ryan Tan was 3/4 in B Grade. Not bad for a 13 year old playing in the adults league.
Alicia was 3rd in the B Grade singles. Also good for a young girl playing against adults.
Janice and Jasmine Tan were 2nd in the adults C grades doubles. Good work girls.
This has shown the dominance of Yuli's young players coming up in the ranks.
Many of these players will be fighting for a place in the WA State Under 15s this weekend. Good luck to them.

Yuli took a challenge from her lawyer friend to sleep as a homeless person to raise funds for the homeless.
Raymond Tan has been taking part in the CEO Sleepout for over 5 years.
The Sleepout takes place at the WACA grounds.
Yuli slept out on 18 June 2015.
However she managed to raise over $4000 from her friends and supporters.
The funds are used by Vinnies to provide accommodation and help to the over 100,000 homeless people in Australia. Yuli was ranked in the top 50s out of 106 CEOs who took part last night.
She hopes to take part again next year and raise even more funds.
