Where Are We Going, Dad? Child Star Just Made Her International Tennis Debut In Singapore
Ten years have passed since the first season of the hugely popular reality TV show Where Are We Going, Daddy? and the children have all grown up.
Cindy, 14, who played in the first season alongside her Olympic gold medalist diver father, Tian Liang, 43, recently made headlines after it was announced that she was doing her international debut in tennis.
Although Cindy was only five years old when she appeared on the show, it was already apparent that she really loved tennis, with the other cast members dubbing her “a girl who is like the wind”.

Tian Liang is very supportive of her daughter’s efforts and once took Cindy to watch one of tennis star Naomi Osaka’s matches. In 2020, Cindy also attended a tennis masterclass by former Australian world No. 1 tennis player Lleyton Hewitt.
In September last year, when reports that Cindy was considering turning professional in tennis first surfaced, Tian Liang spoke to the media, sharing that he had no intention of letting his girl do it.
However, he added that he would respect Cindy’s decision and support any choice she made.
And now it looks like Cindy has chosen to move forward with her love of tennis.
At the recent ITF J30 Junior Championships in Singapore (I), which runs from January 30 to February 4 here, the 14-year-old made her international debut by winning a match against Singapore’s Dong Yi Zhuo.
However, she was eliminated in the quarter-finals, after losing to Indonesian Anjali Kirana Junarto.
Not bad at all.
