    “I knew I had a chance to beat her from last time I had played her, and all the Chinese girls get to know how to play against her as she is our main rival. I get advice from my teammates as well,” said Xie.

    Camilla - a lone fighter against the whole army of Chinese ladies.

    Ain't that the truth since Camilla is just about the only player who can beat the China team.

    Players like Wang Chen, Mia Audina, etc. just can't cut it.

    I just don't see any upcoming female players from the other countries who can put a dent into the Chinese team.

    totally.

    it is a scary thing to read. imagine fighting against someone while they know all your moves, and publicly says so as well.

    It's very hard for Camilla.... imagine all the China ladies exchanging information on how to beat Camilla....

    But anyway, I thought Xie Xingfang played very well against C.Martin and Dai Yun!

    Poor Camilla Martin. However, she can take heart that she is one of the prettiest ladies on court.
    All this aside, I do believe that the whole badminton world should not just accept the fact that the Chinese girls are so strong, but also produce more Camilla Martins to counter the imbalance.

    Well, the true fact is even if the Chinese sent 2 ladies team in a competition, they will end up grabbing the gold and silver medals.
    It's just that scary!
