Gong ZC vs Camilla

    Gong Zhichao has a very evident edge over her danish rival, Camilla Martin. What gives her this edge in your opinion?
    I believe that this edge comes from her impeccable footwork and speed around the court which has enabled her to reach most of Camilla's accurate dropshots and clears.
    please share your opinion.

    Unfortunate, we can't see them to play in a match again.

    Here we go again!

    The Chinese girls beat Camilla and vice versa, whomever wins it is rarely "quite easily"...

    As far as I remember it is Camilla who has won the last two times she has faced Chinese opponents (Zhang Ning and Zhou Mi)

    ;)

    I agree, most of Camilla's matches v a Chinese player have been too close to name anyone a Camilla-Killer *except* for Camilla herself, IMO. Yelling at herself after a mistake that loses the rally; coming apart when she's ahead 10-1 or 10-2 and going on to lose the set; and other things like that. The only thing I have noticed that is not related to losing the mental game is Camilla's conditioning. There have been times when she was obviously fatigued and her Chinese opponent still showed no signs of being overly tired. that would certainly contribute to CM's difficulty in closing out a game, but I still believe the critical factor for her is the mental game.

    Didn't Johnny say that? ;)

    The sooner we switch to mandatory registration, the less we will see of those couple of losers who pollute this and the IBF website.

    But does mandatory registration help? Even if registration is required, anyone who wants to pollute a forum can still register with some bogus name (and probably get a temporary hotmail or yahoo email address if email confirmation is required) and then type in the senseless and immature materials.
