    Totally agreed. She isn't that fast or sharp or dangerous in general. In my opinion, in XD, the woman makes a lot of difference. Kim doesn't i feel, and Ko usually has to cover a lot for her. She also made so many mistakes in the Sudirman cup final XD.

    I like Kim Ha Na. Together with Jung Kyung Eun they could definitely be members of a Kpop band. They look tall, glamorous and elegant. I agree with you all though that she really is a bit too skinny. Makes me a bit worried.

    Winning the AUS Open XD last week with KSH, she was actually quite on top of her game. Front and defence play was excellent, and I just don't know how she manages to get so much power out of those scrawny arms.

    A very nice and respectable player with good manners.

    At first she seemed somewhat cold and scary when I first met her in 2012.

    But these days, maybe since her injury earlier in the year she seems to be smiling a lot and becoming more expressive on-court from what I've observed at the AUS Open.


    But yea, what still amazes me is how she can smash pretty hard with a MX80 with those arms of hers. Next time I should ask her how she does it lol

    Not that it really matters when she's unable to get into play

    If I were Korea, I'd put my hopes in Shin Seung Chan and Choi Hye In.

    Oh, that's a real shame. Very smooth player and I can never get over how she can smash so hard with her skinny arms. She most have one of the best weight to power ratios of any of the players.

    Retired at age 28, I thought , for a doubles player, she's good for another 2 - 3 years until the Tokyo Olympics at least. Anyway, KOR WD and XD are in good hands with several talented youngsters coming up.
