    I think Fu has to come back to BEIJING to feel comfortable!! Yeah, I saw Cai's flat hair on TV, too!! He didn't use his gel.. Cai with flat hair.. Ok lah.. A fresh look. hahaha

    On the other hand, Cai's skin looks so much more radiant after the Fuzhou training session.. I wonder why??

    My hometown is good for him, obviously :p That's why they're going back again again, right after China Masters.

    What racket is Gade using? From the looks of it (and if you compare it to LD's pics), it looks like an AT-700.:eek: That would be insane in too many ways...

    Ideas?

    PG is indeed using a AT-700, just like LD, why would that be insane?

    It's probably one of the worst rackets for his playing style... Plus he's clashing with LD, fighting power with power.

    It's also a huge difference from his previous rackets. He was planning to switch to NS8k as well...

    In one sentence, he's betting a lot here... He needed something radical to make a comeback, but still...

    Anyways... I guess the whole thing just reinforced his place as my favorite player .:D

    Love those photos. Too bad, Lin Dan lost. It was a close fight. Well, with the new points system. Anyone can win. :cool:

    indeed...but even if teh racket theoretically didn't "fit his style" who woudl care? he likes it doesn't he? I remember him playing an mp88...wich is rated as "defensive" in yy's chart...

    also, wich I forgot

    "O boy he smashes harder than me..better switch to my special sissy-racket"

    I was just saying that even the specified style of AT700 that YY has given it, fits Gade pretty good. I know that it doesn't matter what style YY rates is at.

    I know, I know. I'm agreeing...extra stiff and head heavy generally fits a lot of pro's...there're just a lot of power-shots going on in modern day pro-badminton
