    WSX is going the way of Zhu Lin and Lu Lan;it's a matter of time before she fades away, unless,unless, if,if, she acquires an attacking shot

    Yup, the last match creates huge upset, Thai prodigy Inthanon Ratchanok stuns one of the famous Three Wangs, looks like Wang Shixian is displaying down-hill performance, kinda similar with Wang Yihan last year.

    Some upsets today and more importantly CHN lost one 1st seed and one 2nd seed. Let's see what's in store tomorrow.

    I support whoever plays better,has the right attitude and character,giving concessions for personally traits and oddities, that's why,also in answer to the rest, I care more about who vs who and sometimes even CHN vs CHN do produce worthy matches. I don't like fixed matches either, but if a non-CHN player is no match for a CHN player, what's the point, any big difference? Ask Lee CW and Peter Gade, or Saina and Tine, they don't care how or whether CHN fixed or not fixed matches; all they know is to beat all of them, and that ,to me,is the only practical solution to overcome match-fixing. Otherwise,whenever two players of the same nationality play each other,how do you stop or force them to give of their best? Any country with China's breadth and depth of talents, with so many good players to choose from, will face the same dilemma. We just need to have more Lee CWs and Peter Gades, and Ithanons and Tai TYs to challenge the Chinese juggernaut, If that is not possible yet,just too bad,keep trying.

    Do you know in Chess, for a long period of time,the former Soviet Union was so dominant, yet it took just one American,Bobby Fischer,to sweep them all off. Unfortunately,after that, Bobby Fischer self-destruct, and the USSR's dominance continued until its political disintegration. That's another story, I digress too much.

    So for today's last match of the day, you can see my heart is for Wang SX (personal liking) but my head says Ithanon Ratchanok because she plays better and is the future star. And tomorrow's QF,the two rising stars, IR and LXR, will be the match to watch for me. I'm sure we'll get to see more of this two and Tai Tzu Ying for many years to come. Of course,other new sensation will pop up once in a while but they will have to progress steadily and continously, not be just a flash in the pan. Example,Yao Xue did very well today against Tine, but still too early to say, we shall see. Liu Xin,another example,started her career the same time as LXR and has been consistently ranked higher but,I agree with Ian Wright, LXR is the rising star of the year.

    To draw an analogy, supposed Lee CW is really the best in the world, The Greatest, and not Lin Dan - let's for argument's sake,reverse their roles - do you think China's or for that matter any other country's so-called match-fixing will be of any use? Whoever China sends to face Lee won't bother him the least bit,he will knock him down. We are talking about winning the Champion's Title,be it the World Championship or Olympics (not Runner-ups) and certainly not any particular match where heavy betting is involved which happens in all sports. I think,the best China can do for Chen Jin is to help him win bronze, for he cannot beat Lin Dan,Lee CW or Chen Long, maybe even Peter Gade during OG'12,not to mention other surprises. Remember, even Lin Dan was shockingly eliminated by a certain Ronald Susilo in Round 1 of the Athens Olympics 2004!

    Peter Gade himself is fully aware that Chen Jin is after his 4th position to qualify for the Olympics as he has expressed in his Facebook page.Did he rant and rave at China trying to "help" Chen Jin or complain loudly and whine to BWF or rally his fans to protest against it? He simply said he will do his utmost to beat Chen Jin and win the tournament ,if possible. That's my Peter The Great!

    He's talking about the possibility of another non-China WS player that might be able to win the China Open by beating a whole host of China WS players. That is not so far fetched, given Ratchanok's talent (which is miles better than WMC).

    considering CHN won 11 out of the last 12 SS WS, i would say that is most unlikely.
