    Hey madbad,

    We are not using that abbreviated version of her name out of respect to the player.

    Thanks

    I read in the newspaper that RI have received a total of Thai Baht 10 million from the govt, sponsors,
    companies and well wishers.
    Kudos to her and family, it cannot happen to a nicer person!

    Wow, another young potential Thai girl champion, Ms Pattarasuda (10 years old), in the "Thai badm production machine". Very interesting that the Thai girls are making more headlines than the China girls in badm.
    Great for badm, so how about Thailand producing some women's doubles potential champion? The current crop of Thai women doubles players are not making much impact like the Thai ladies Singles.

    If Thailand can produce 2 or 3 good ladies pairing, then the Uber Cup will be much more interesting without having only China dominating (no offence to the Koreans :))

    Kamala Thongkorn -, This lady is amazing, if only every country had a Kamala Thongkorn, she should be praised by bwf would be nice to do a feature of her on the channel.

    The house of golden teardrops? sounds like something out of willy wonka. Does anyone know what the phrase golden teardrops means?

    There is a Thai dessert called "Thong-Yord" which has its shape looks like teardrop and has a golden-yellow color(see link below for image). I suppose the writer playing words with the name of Thai dessert. Indeed, the school name is Ban-Thong-Yord, as you can see in the article embedded picture, which means the house of Thong-Yord...thereby...house of golden teardrops.

    It's the Thai sweet made from eggs and sugar. Other names: golden drops, eggdrop sweet. The meaning of 'Ban Thongyord' (May's club) is 'House of Golden Drops' (Ban = house; Thongyord = golden drops).

    Once May used to introduce Pattarasuda (12) as 'Ratchanok2'. She said everyone thinks this girl will have a bright future like herself or will be even more successful.

    12 years. Let's assume 6 days a week and 4 hours per day. 2 weeks holiday per year.

    12 x 50 x 6 x 4 = 14,400 hours....... Wow...

    If it is assumed 6 hours of training per day, then 21,600hours.

    That's what's needed to be the top of the world. I am a bit behind that figure :eek:
