    Well,if the doctor can certify that a he is now a she, I wonder if BWF rules allow her to play, For all you know,BWF may not have anything regarding such a case, your question would probably stump them.

    Actually, there were/are gender tests in OG, but mostly for females whom they suspect are males. There's one African female runner who had to subject to the tests, this is most recent example. Her face looks masculine plus the muscles, but she is female, born with more higher male hormone count than usual, but still female. The athlete, her parents and the African association took offense to quarters who suggest that they are trying to cheat

    Gender change operation, offhand I recall reading the participant needs to have done the operation 2 yrs, with all the certification from doctors

    No surprises at all, 3-0 is going to be the outcome, nobody will dare to bet against it now

    Wang Xin playing with much less pressure is a frightening prospect, Porntip , take care.

    Wang Xin must train harder and evolve her game right before the Olympics

    From FastnFurious to 2Fast2Furious

    so it is very complicated especially that athlete, Caster Semenya
    but they do allow transsexual to compete

    btw since we are really off topic here
    I believe CHN will take the third game and sealed it 3-0..

    nice cross court from porntip, but too wide

    Maybe the BWF or the organizer can come up with something that requires all the matches to be played even when the results are beyond doubt, say give big prize money for every match won just so they continue playing for money and honour. Otherwise I don't get to see LXR play or some other players favoured by others.

    What, 14-all now ?!

    After the opening game, I allowed myself to hope for some good matches ...
    What a disappointment.
