Yani, Chien-Ming both losing their shine

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwanese golfing queen Yani Tseng has dropped out of the top 10 ranked player, falling to spot number 12 in the latest Rolex Rankings.

This is the first time in five years that Tseng has dropped out of the top 10. She has been struggling since last year, with her ranking continuing to fall from its previous spot at No. 1.

Her average Rolex Rankings score has dropped from 5.56 to 5.39 this week, while Cationa Matthew and Paula Creamer have both passed her in the rankings.

Tseng was able to breach the top 10 in 2008, then went on to claim the top spot in 2011. For 109 consecutive weeks, Tseng was able to maintain her place as world number one before gradually slipping downward since 2012.

Pitcher Chien-Ming Wang is also another once elite athlete who has been struggling recently. Unable to maintain his usual performance at a minor league game against Toledo, Wang allowed six runs in four and 1/3 innings. Wang was sent to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons in early July after his pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays failed to show any improvement.

Toledo lost to Buffalo 6-7 yesterday. Wang gave up two runs in the first inning but was able to retire 10 batters between the second and fourth innings. Nevertheless, Wang seemed shaken up at the beginning of the fifth, when he allowed nine hits before leaving the mound.
