Sun Tiantian revealed why tennis players look older than their age

China's Sun Tiantian, who was 2008 Australian Open mixed doubles champion along with Nenad Zimonjic, was given the honour to become the first WTA player to blog in Sony Ericsson WTA Tour website this year.

Sun is currently in Sydney to compete and make her Australian Open preparations at the Medibank International.

She shared with the fans why most tennis players look older than their age.
For instance:

Marcos Baghdatis is only 23 but looks like 32.

Sun revealed that tennis players frequently play matches outdoor under exposed sunlight, hence causing premature ageing.

She also said, in Australia, the UV ray is very strong due to the depletion of ozone layer.

Believe it or not, statistics show that Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world!

Besides talking about the sun in Australia (didn't talk about the surf though), she also blogged about missing her mom's cooking, playing doubles with Anna-Lena Groenefeld in Sydney and being satisfied with the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar for 2009.
"There are tournaments with more prize money, and they're also paying more attention to the players' health, giving us a longer off-season among other things. I like these changes."
