    It is indeed a very sad news. She didnt have a chance to pair up with a good player so far.
    She was one of the most promising player.
    I guess it is better if Li Yinhui is the one who retired.

    Not many indeed, about 10-15 out of the abundant players
    Well, I still prefer them to be there till about 30 though
    (of course badminton should be more awarding and less 'stressful' / emphasis on outcome at the China camp for this to happen)

    The old Yu Yang was pushed to play in the Olympic, not sure it is CBA or her own ambition to win gold medal at Olympic.
    She is too old to play at Olympic and she blamed Tang during the bronze medal match.

    So far, only Zhang Ning and now Lin Dan are the two over 30-year-olds (excluding Tang Xianhu, Hou Jiachang and Fang Kaixiang, I was told, in bygone era) in singles.

    In doubles, we had Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng , and a couple others, more common in doubles than singles for obvious reasons.

    fair enough. London scandal was the management decision, so of course she wanted to 'redeem' it
    and the managerial can't say no since they know they had done something dirty.
    Meanwhile, she was already not at her prime and actually had won a gold in 2008.
    Well, it was both Yu Yang's and the Chinese team's greedeness in London which drives Tang to went away last year
    and also help in worsening the problem nowadays

    A bit strange that Bao Yixin referred to Liu Cheng as " Lao Wang" when I thought it should be " Lao Liu".

    Plus few other names, which might not be the among the best talents CBA has, but they area bit too young to retire: Qiu Zihan and Wang Zhengming.

    Luo Yu probably will still continue her career if she get a good pair, even though it would be hard for her to start over again, as for the whole life she only play with her twin sister.

    About BYX, I come to think that she might decide to quit because She didn't have the luck to play in the last two Oly, and in Tokyo 2020, she would be 29, and CQC, HDP, JYF, and many other younger new talents will for sure have the advantage come Tokyo Oly 2020. She wouldn't have a chance. So she thinks it's over for her. Just my 2 cents. Whatever it is. Good bye Bao Yixin, you will always be missed.

    She and TJH should've never been split as a pair. They was once unstoppable in the world for quite a long run. HDP/LYH? I think Bao and recent partner Yu are way ahead of them. She no doubt still believes in herself that she can be the best today provided with the right partner.

    I might get shot for saying this, but I think she's really just been unlucky; a casualty of the whole CBA 'scene'. One thing led to another... all going back to the 2012 London WD controversy with YY and WXL. YY as we know ended up getting paired with the promising TYT, but 'exploded' in Rio. TYT was supposed to be BYX's partner; they was beginning to dominate following that AE 2015 win. Meanwhile, when ZYL withdrew from WD in Rio, her and TQ's spot had to be given to the twins. I think it should've been a pair with BYX in it. But what other choice did they have?

    Can anyone refresh the story of why Bao and Tang Jinhua pair was broken up? Did one of them got injured?

    Shocked when I read the news of BYX retirement. Too young to retire. she has the potential leave a legacy and win more titles

    As far as I can recall, the pair BYX/TJH was split some time after they suffered a disappointing loss at the Uber Cup 2014 in the Final to Matsutomo/Takahashi, 18-21,9-21, though CHN still retained the trophy 3:1 against JPN.

    After that, the confidence of the pair took a hit and several lucklustre results followed which led to their split.
