    A bit of a surprise that you rate WSX's looks ahead of the Aussie whose name, btw, is Gronya Sommerville of mixed heritage, her great great grandfather was the famous Kang Youwei.

    I guess I have stated that earlier too :) know who Gonya Sommerville is. Am a member of this site after all, but who is this Kang Youwei?

    [MENTION=86374]Justin L[/MENTION] how many SS titles does Tian have to his name? And how many does Srikanth have? That's why almost everyone rates SK higher than TH, irrespective of their H-H scores. They have higher expectations for SK compared to Tian. I don't know why you bring CL into the discussion, as he's already a proven player. I have no doubt, he'll go out as one of the legends, by the time when he retires.

    It's like asking, how many majors does LCW have to his name ? Does it mean Chen Jin who won one major , the WC in Paris 2010, is 'always better than' LCW ? (Yes, I know some people have the urge to argue that Chen Jin's one WC is better than LCW's none, but that's not the point of contention which is who is the better player - just look at their H2H 11-2 overwhelmingly in favour of LCW who won the last six encounters).

    I mean, having high/higher expectations is one thing (many players do) but whether you can deliver is another. Anyway, I'm not keen to debate further, these two players still have a quite a bit to catch up, wait till they are better than Viktor Axelsen whom I regard as the most promising of the new younger cohort of rising stars snapping at the heels of The Super Trio, Chen Long, Lin Dan, and Lee CW.

    And what would you say if a particular player has a 4-0 H2H against Lin Dan, all within this year? That Lin Dan is always better than that player

    Am I the only one here who finds WSX better looking than Gronya??? Surely there must be others. let's have a poll.

    Young players like Tian, Viktor need to win tournaments in order for anyone to take notice of them, unlike their competitors Srikanth and Momoto who already have SS titles. Defeating players like LD and LCW is one thing, but going on to win a tourney is totally different. I guess this is where players like Viktor, Tian lack, they are not consistent enough to carry out the form through out a tournament. Infact, Prannoy has never lost a match against JOJ, but that record is worth nothing unless you actually win a tournament.

    On court 2 there were amateur commentators, and Miss Oller was invited to comment for a match and we had the chance to see her doing it. Her voice is charming and her look a pure delight. She plays for England, level not so high I'm afraid!
