    Yup, among the CHN WS players, I like WYH the most. Practically see her growing up when she started playing. She is pretty and cute, even until now at 27. And yes, WSX though pretty but has that fierce look. I will wet in my pants if she stares at me with her angry face.

    And me too, wishing for a new champion in both MS and WS. Rooting for LCW and SN too.
    Momota and JOJ are still young and they will have their chances.

    But then PV Sindhu def Linda in the Syed modi SF before loosing to SN...
    Yea Linda has very good match awareness and the croud absolute obstacle for anyone (but I am loving it for sure they never get tired of shouting Indo-nesiaaaaaa and those occasional songs) she is very good form if she can def RI 21-10 in g2 and take 7 consecutives from so very fit Taipei Typhoon at match point she can do anything!!
    Although I am sure its CM vs SN in the finals and a 3set thriller is guaranteed

    I agree.
    Throwing the racket in the air is certainly not "intimidating the opponent". That was merely an expression of joy.

    Neither Saina, nor Carolina ever looked arrogant to me. But I will sure cheer for Saina if they face each other.

    Go Saina and Lee Chong Wei. That's my slogan for the remaining matches.

    Perfectly said... I agree with every single alphabet and punctuation used!!
    WYH has the best nature in the entire CHN contingent (along with TYT)

    I have seen ZN,XC and LYD throwing their racquets in the air hundred of times in fact throwing it on the floor in fierce disgust... I have also never seen an umpire giving a card after the match neither have I seen an umpire denying to shake hands with the players!! If players can fly in air and pump their fists with aggression towards the opponent... If they can blow clinched fists at their opp (ZYL) merely throwing racquet after a grueling battle seems just to me

    It is likely that SN vs. CM in the final. I hope Momota will come out blazing vs. CL. I like Momota vs LCW in the final.

    Momota brings a new freshness to the game. CL is too boring.

    Totally agree with your post. She is my favourite WS player too.. along with LXR. There is nothing can make you dislike these two :)

    Oh, I like LCW. I think he will reach the final at least. Besides he was banned for taking prohibited drugs. Caught and punished. Was he not?! Dont be so sensitive.

    Like I thought previously, very nice of Wei Nan and Hu Yun to play above themselves and create upset, but on the next round they just collapsed! SK would have given us a better match against LCW I believe.

    For me, I used to have respect for LCW until he became a loser. Quite simple really hehe. Realised how over-rated he is, never having won a major, and he never will. Never wrong I guess.

    WYH's style of play is not so great, nothing to compare with LXR, for example. But she looks sooooooo good! I believe most of the positive comments on her are partly motivated by this!

    Those bashing CM should just mute the video and look away when she's not in a rally hehe. Otherwise you're missing the "next level" in WS play. Ratchanok Intanon also can reach this level. Those harping on about how LXR is the best etc are in denial.

    I initially also disliked CM because of her antics etc, but I simply can't deny her talent, technical ability, and supreme physicality. 5+ years ago, China WS were a level or two above everyone else in terms of physicality (not talent or technical ability), but the gap has now closed and CM has in fact surpassed it.

    I have a feeling that might change this coming Sunday. We will see.
