Maybe of her speech therapist. She's still young enough to cry but is she still young enough to talk like a baby?

that just proves H20 has no idea bout asian women... especially asian youth.. why do you keep treating her like shes 25... man treat her as she is... a YOUTH prodigy who is good enough to beat anyone on this board and their mamas... just cuz she got skills dont mean she has to act or even knows how to act like a 25 yearold.. sure theres glimpses of how mature she is but after all she is 16 and 16 year olds last i checked are still growing, learning about themselves, and last but not least are still going through freakin puberty.. so give her a break if she sheds tears after a loss... atleast shes out there doing her thing... heh id HATE to be a sports star here in hawaii... people are never satisfied and never appreciate anything...all they do is beach and moan whenver something doesnt fit their liking. kinda makes you wonder why there are soo many f***d up youth here in hawaii bad parents.. and the good ones are smart enough to go away and make a name for themselves. then come back when theyre mature enough to handle the pressure that everyone gives them. no wonder why so many of our top talent leave for washington, oregon st, etc... " US" the local people never stop biiting and moaning about so and so player not living up to THEIR expectations. id hate to bust my donkey, bleed and sweat for ungrateful fans who only have nice things to say when ur doing good.. but NEVER give support when theyre in a slump.

Are you kidding me? How can someone grow up in Hawaii and NOT know about them ;) . I could have sworn I posted on this last night but I guess I forgot. How is being a 16 year old asian girl connected to not speaking well? Is it genetic? Of course I've heard asian girls speak like that, in school, where it's more like they do that just to be cute. If its genetic then I can understand, otherwise I say you're a public figure and representing Hawaii on a National scale, act like it and learn to speak well. She may not have wanted to be so popular and have to grow up in a hurry but guess what, it happened. She is obviously not a normal 16 year old which is why people don't treat her like one. I don't know what it has to do with being asian. There are 12 year olds with more articulation than her. It's like Pidgin, I am SO glad I can turn it on and off. How she speaks or how people sound when they speak pidgin says nothing about how smart they really are, I know that, I mean she goes to Punahou right. But if anyone thinks that talking like a baby or in broken english in professional situations doesn't make you sound like an idiot, you're dreaming.

But again, if it's true that theres absolutely no way she can speak better because she's asian and it's in her blood I'll understand.

And we are not the ones she's playing against so I dont see what us playing her in golf has to do with anything. This is a sports board, do you expect us to NOT say anything about the NFL, or UH football either because we don't play for them?

Michelle Wie crying just means that she gives a rip! If she was only concerned about the money or fame then she wouldn't be crying, I think she was emotional because she felt that she let people down. I cry all the time, but I'm a big fat wussy! But I give a rip!

I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's her voice. Even as she becomes more confident and beigns to show that in her interviews, she'll still have the same voice.

Also, there are 12 year olds that can out articulate everyone on this board. Comparing them to her is unfair. She is who she is and she'll grow into the person she is meant to be. From what I've been seeing, her and her family are doing a great job in directing her life.

I don't speak as well as the next guy. In fact, a lot of people confuse me with someone a lot younger when they hear me speak. I don't see it as me being less of a man, just different.

I think she sounds cute. Oh yeah, I'm not saying that in a R Kelly way.

Yeah the crying thing I agree with you, that kind of pressure on her being so young is really tough. I do root for her though and hope one day breaks many more barriers.
