    A low centre of gravity and a stocky build, not unlike Jung Jae-sung. Saina is (was) the same but she's put on a lot of weight ("fat" was the word used by some TV commentators).

    I wish our mods not only ban the regular troublemaker, but also delete his entire posts to make sure no one will ever read those rubbish.
    IMO, such respawning troll is no different than real life terrorist: they don't care if they got killed, as long as his messages is made known to the world.

    LCW has already put the pressure to SDK as early as the first serve. LCW does not have the intention to rallying, because rallying is SDK comfort zone while LCW is in speed. That is why, LCW drags SDK to LCW's comfort zone which is speed and totally owning him in the first and second set. On top of that LCW class is way above SDK, not to mention SDK fitness level which is depleted. Furthermore, it is MAS open SS, LCW performed in front of their Home crowd, that is why he is performing as magnificent as possible. Malaysia Boleh, Janji Ditepati.

    i think her flair, and love for the game transpired on her play and her emotions displayed on court, carried over to the audience in the stands. people enjoy watching enthusiastic players. it is almost as if they are on the court with the players. as badminton players, we love to see trick shots and fantastic angled net shots. this is what the game is about, not so much about the brute force.

    so true. so true.

    i am not too into the trick shots per se, but the enthusiasm and attitude counts a lot to appreciate the player's game, regardless of whether they win or not.

    very stark contrast in this final between YX and TTY. YX was frowning most of the game, move and play like she is just another product of the Chinese factory, no personality, no flair, no expression.

    For YX, it was her first SS final and she looked she was under heavy pressure to perform, for herself and the nation.

    Without any big tournaments in the next few weeks until AE, the forum has gone quiet.

    Based on past experience, during calm times BCers will usually discuss (and occasionally battle) about players.

    The Chinese factory is a mass production factory (like Toyota), after all, so the programming cannot be too far different for each model ....... wakakakakaka

    Whereas other country's factories are, err, more exotic, low volume concerns ...... with more focused programming but could be temperamental or prone to breakdowns ...... I think the Italians used to call these things "character".

    Not exactly true that CHN is a mass production badminton factory. Look at Lin Dan and Li Xuerui, how different and exceptional, that's why they are top of the heap respectively; even Wang Shixian is so different from everyone else in the CHN squad, not to mention Chen Jin the typical runner, rallying type player.

    And I wouldn't take Yao Xue's MAS final performance as a typical example. Even if she is the mass produced product, it must be scary that CHN is able to produce so many capable of going from Qualification stage to the final of a Superseries. In that final match,she displayed jittery,stiff and mechanical form more due to her nerves being the first time in a SS final coupled with her inexperience in international tourneys.

    That said, I must admit Tai TY is not only much more experienced, she is also a more thinking and deceptive player to outsmart Yao Xue who has a lot to learn from her in those aspects; the same goes for many other CHN WS players with a few notable exceptions such as Han Li who is also a second stringer if I may say so but she was able to beat Tai TY in the KOR Open PSS the week before. Likewise I think Sun Yu who overcame Tai TY in the recent WJC is a different kind of player from Yao Xue. As for Tai TY she has lots of potential being still relatively young and only a little more than three years in the international circuit;she will rise further in the next 1-2 years.

    IMHO, CHN has a variety of players with differing styles; occasionally a few of them even transform themselves, say Du Pengyu who used to be the rallying 'mechanical' type but now becoming a more attacking, all-rounded player. To use the car market analogy, CHN is the high quality mass product factory cum top-of-the-line niche producer, just like Toyota has their Lexus.Just my 2-cents.

    Actually no need experience, just simple thinking...
    [NORMAL CASES] No tournament -> nothing to discuss -> going to players' thread instead -> yada yada yada -> tournament day -> now can discuss.

    Or:
    [UGLY CASES] No tournament -> nothing to discuss -> going to players' thread instead -> yada yada yada -> some ppl praise their fave players too high / invade other players' threads + boast / flame -> fans of "opposing team" get irritated -> battle -> ppl report -> mod intervene -> thread closed / some ppl got banned -> tournament day -> now can discuss / continue the battle there.

    :eek::(:rolleyes::cool::p
