    She could be considered as one of the top European players who can beat many Asian professionals! Maybe she and Tine could both pose a problem to the Chinese players ;)?

    She seems to be playing better and better. A patient player. I thought she has slimmed quite a bit and this is good for her mobility. The first time I saw her, she appeared to be on the heavy side! :D

    there was an interesting interview with her coach on badmintonsite.com a while back, where he talked about her training and how she's one of the few players on the women's tour who can respond to in-game coaching advice (because of the organization of her training).
