. Greetings, Heard that Wang Chen is retiring from Badminton tournaments. Just 2 years' ago, in 2007, when Wang Chen turned 30, I thought she would retire at the end of that year. But she continued to participate in tournaments. And surprisingly, she was still playing well (worldwide) against many players much younger than her. With her love for Badminton, I felt so happy for her. During 2009, Wang Chen participated in more than 12 tournaments (my guess). And also by the end of 2009, she is ranked 11th in the world. Let us congratulate Wang Chen for providing us BCers with so much joy in watching her play over the so many years she has contributed to Badminton. Cheers... chris-ccc .
