    She also enrolled at Bangkok Thonburi University earlier this year, but was allowed a flexible class schedule to fit around her badminton training and tournaments.

    I have watched Pattarasuda play in a tournament in Singapore. Very impressive indeed.

    Any reason why she hasn't enrolled in Chulalongkorn University? They have some other Thai national players enrolled there.

    Chulalongkorn University focus primary on academics and won't allow her too much time for badminton. (Pontip has to skip many SS tournaments to go for required internship by her school)

    I saw Thonburi comes quite low on the rankings but they've had a great capture and she would be a high profile alumni.

    Chulalongkorn university have some excellent badminton players - some of them must have been semi-pro before.

    My dreams are up in smoke.
    I spend 8 hours on badminton per week.
    21,600/8 =2,700 weeks.
    It will take me 52 years to be a World Champion!!:crying:

    Indian journalist praised her for both performance and characters and named her as "The Badminton's Wind of Change"

    They said...

    "...That Ratchanok Inthanon, the new world champion, is nothing like the interchangeable Chinese champions of the last few years is immediately evident. What badminton needs to appreciate more urgently is just how precociously talented the 18-year-old who became the youngest-ever world champion, is. This could be shuttle's Steffi Graf moment where the whole world wows. Such is the Thai's quiet magnetism...."

    and I agreed, Ratchanok Intanon, You are truly wonderful...

    ...and her story is so inspiring admiration...It is no doubt that she had been awarded with the Sport-Inspiring Young People Trophy from The International Olympics Committee (IOC).

    I'd be in the 100+ category. Does time on BC count?

    All eyes will be on newly crowned world women’s singles champion Ratchanok Intanon at the China Masters badminton championships to be held in Changzhou, China from 10-15 September.

    The Thai lass is set for a repeat clash against China’s Li Xuerui at the championships. Ratchanok, who defeated Xuerui 22-20, 18-21, 21-14 for the world title in Guangzhou earlier this month, has been seeded second behind Xuerui for the China Masters.


    However, it is not going to be easy for Ratchanok, who has been drawn to meet China’s Jiang Yanjiao in the opening match. She is drawn to meet Korean eighth seed Bae Yeon Ju in the quarter-finals and a likely meeting against third seed Wang Yihan in the semi-finals.

    Anyone notice the very interesting development of Steen Pederson perspective toward Ratchanok as the WC final matched go on.

    At the beginning of the 1[SUP]st[/SUP] game : “ …she is just a playful player…” (min 11.45)
    At the end of 1[SUP]st[/SUP] game : “…not the same player on court anymore…and play excellent…”(min 31.30)
    At the middle of 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] game : “…she is the most technical skillful player we ever had……I choose Ratchanok as the best technical player….”(min 55.30)
    At the very end of 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] game : Fastastic!!!

    Wow. This will be even tougher than WC, if she can beat the top 2 Chinese WS players to win the title.
