    TAIPEI: Taiwan called on more companies on Tuesday to finance athletes amid concerns local tennis hero and Wimbledon women’s doubles champion Hsieh Su-Wei might take up Chinese citizenship in exchange for a seven figure sponsorship deal. China has been wooing Taiwan’s top talent in sports including basketball, baseball, pool and golf amid warming ties with the island in recent years. Taiwan’s Sports Administration said it now aims to secure pledges from at least 100 companies for more than Tw$100 million ($3.33 million) every year to finance around 50 athletes and groups.
