I was browsing Wikipedia when I came accross some descriptions of the style and ability of the players. Lin Dan Strengths --- Lin Dan is a left handed player whose most defining characteristic is his ability to attack with fast smashes at steep angles. He combines quick movements around the court with the ability to maintain long aggressive rallies to win the majority of his matches. His well built physique helps him to produce powerful straight and cross court jump smashes and his fast penetrating footwork makes him one of the toughest active badminton players in the open circuit. Weaknesses --- He is known as a temperamental player, occasionally disrupting matches to protest line calls. Taufik Hidayat Strengths --- Hidayat's qualities are his backhand (he is arguably most famous for his backhand smash, which has been recorded at over 200 km/h), forehand drop shot (reverse slice in particular), forehand jump smash, net-play, smooth footwork and occasional deceptive shots (such as his fake smash and fake drive, both of which he plays as drop shots). Weaknesses --- He has weaknesses in is his propensity to make errors, his impatience with loud crowds and his penchant for returning a net shot with a net shot, even when the opponent is dangerously close to the net. Wong Mew Choo Strengths --- She is known for her exceptional endurance and stamina, the result of training alongside male shuttlers. Without any significant attacking arsenals, she initially built her game based on fitness and defence, with the ability to run a continuous, long rally; sending everything back to tactically superior opponents until a mistake or an attacking opportunity appears. Weaknesses --- Lacks attacking skills. Because of long rallies, such tactics have served her well, but put a lot of pressure on her knees and ankles.. She has been known to suffer from various long term injuries in her playing career. Peter Gade Strengths --- His playing style is known for fast attacks, smooth footwork, constant pressure, and deceptive shots. Xie Xingfang Not an especially elegant looking stylist, Xie's strengths have been her combination of reach, quickness, consistency, and court sense. I know this may have been discussed in each of the players' thread, but it would really be nice to see all of their styles and abilities in just one thread for better comparison. It would be cool if our baddy heroes have stats, pros and cons, and stuff like that, so much like the X-men trade cards or Magic (The Gathering) cards or Battle Tank, or Digimon, or whatever.
