    Haha, same here but i am still growing i think. I can also see that you're same age with me. I like Bao's smashes, he is more concerned on the placement than the power most of the times and sharp thanks to his height.

    women always seem to look taller anyways, especially if the difference is small.

    Anyone know how tall Poul-Erik Hoyer-Larsen is? I've always admired his footwork, how light he appeared to be covering the court despite being a big guy for badminton player.
