    For her height & physique, she still has time..

    ..considering her age, she should still have time to grow a couple more inches or more..Maybe add more milk and burgers to her diet..:cool:

    I hope this young gal stays injury-free and does not get burned out too quickly given her age....

    The future looks bright for Ratchanok

    .
    IMHO, in terms of 'World Class Badminton', Ratchanok Inthanon is already there.

    Yesterday, Thursday 24-Dec-2009, she is ranked 73rd in the world (Women Senior Singles).
    At her age of only 14, the future looks bright for Ratchanok.

    Ratchanok Inthanon should play better in 2011

    .
    IMHO, for next year (2011) May should not be as nervous as she was for this year and for last year.

    With more match experience, I would say that May should play better in 2011.

    Ratchanok could (and should) win 5 titles in a row, which would be a record that no one would ever break.:eek:
    Axelsen could win the WJC 2 more times, though he won't make it so easily as Ratchanok due to having more resistance in the BS.

    Now if they were to get together and have a child in the future, that would be a born champion.;)

    ..imo, Ratchanok will be the one to watch, in her age group, for 2016 OG (she might spring a surprise in 2012 at 17 y.o. but don't think it's her time yet)..She'll be only 21 yrs old by 2016 and God only knows how good she'll be if she keeps on improving and be consistent; right now, for her age, she is so good, it's not even silly..I think her only weaknesses are, if i can categorize them, her stamina and lack of international matches against the world's top players. In her age group, no doubt she's da queen. Hopefully she doesn't burn out or reach a peak plateau before then..:cool:
