    Top Chinese badminton players to compete in Taipei

    2013/02/04 20:36:56

    Taipei, Feb. 4 (CNA) Most of China's top badminton players will compete at the annual Badminton Asian Championships being held in Taipei this year in April, the secretary-general of the Chinese Taipei Badminton Association said Monday.

    Lin Dan, the men's singles gold medalist at last year's Olympic Games in London, and women's singles gold medalist Li Xuerui will lead the Chinese team, said Tsai Hung-peng.

    Li is currently the top ranked women's singles player in the world, while Lin, currently ranked 14th in men's singles, also won gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

    Other top name Chinese players scheduled to compete are Chen Jin, the men's singles gold medalist at the 2010 World Championships, Wang Yihan, the women's singles silver medalist in London, and Zhao Yunlei and Tian Qing, the world's top-ranked women's doubles team, Tsai said.

    The 2013 Asian Championships will take place at Taipei Arena April 16-21.

    I'm glad to see many of the top Chinese players registered for this tournament! This will make the tournament very competitive.

    Good to see that Guo Zhendong is back. But very disappointed that Hong Wei is playing with Shen Ye again, instead of his new parter Chai Biao. Also very disappointed that Zhang Nan is absent from the MD. Disappointed that Zhao Yunlei/Cheng Shu are absent from the WD.

    Interested that Hong Wei is playing the XD event with Tang Jinhua.

    Very, very nice line-up.
    Last year Kim/Kim put up a superb performance to win the MD.
    But this year almost all Asian superstars are going at it. I really like it.
    Ofc the most interesting thing is that Mr. Lin Dan is registered. If he plays we will finally see how much work he has to do to get back to his form or did he already trained that hard, that he is almost back to a good form?!
    For me it is also a good sign that KO Sung Hyun starts to play Mixed (with Kim Ha Na) again. He is also registered for the India SS with Kim. Maybe it helps him to be more "relaxed" in MD with Lee.
    Not sure what CHN is doing in the MD with the continues switching between the dangerous Hong/Chiao combination and the average (ofc on world top niveau) pairings Hong/Shen and Chiao/Guo.

    What's wrong with INA players? TOWI/BUTET are skipping this tournament :confused: Lindaweni is also skipping this where she has showed us a good run on AE2013. Hmm..Let's see how far INA MD and XD can cruise through this tournament.

    Interesting... India has sent 2nd tier players here. Saina is absent. And also, without sending Ajay jayaram, they are sending Sai Praneeth and Sourabh verma to play. Let's see what these guys will do here.

    Sindhu will face Shixian in the second round. I think that this would be her first time meeting her.
