    JS was already a spent force in the 3rd game. Don't think she can play at this level for more than 2 years.

    Xu Chen's fitness problem has to do with his gastritis.

    JS depends more on speed and raw power which can make up for where she is short in skill. A very skillful player can deal with her by making her run all over the court and minimizing her attacking chances. But if you happen to be less than 100% fit, Schenk will overpower you.

    That's why I think Intanon, who is a skillful stroke player and deceptive too, is a more difficult opponent for LXR tomorrow.

    Apart from this, China's habit of top players' loosen up and testing of new players after OG (what they called OG cycle) also offers chances for non-China players to have good results against them during the period of time. Like it or not, this is the fact and did contribute to the current situation.Nevertheless, this is also good for non-China players whose confidence will be boosted, let's see how they continue to perform.
