Which women can smash like a man?
power wise.....and stylish wise........
XXF similar of that of LD
dun quite familiar with the women games cos they are quite boring due to china domination in both WS and WD
Yip Pui Yin, Hong Kong. smash with power n style like a man. little powerhouse. nickname "Black Girl".
XXF, China, smash power like a man, yet style is still a girl. her slim arms (and legs) can generate power u will not believe.
Heck, any woman can smash like me
u r 1 brave man
i know women that smash harder than me O_O i have weak smash ... >.< bad form? or maybe my wrist is just weak.
smash like a man??..
i can say ... Deyana lomban (former INA).. but shes more specific in jumping smash, and shes cute, hehe... How about lilyana/butet??
btw if im not wrong.. huang sui or gujun smash, right??
i think she's gotta be YIP PUI YIN..
AGREE!!Hope to see more from her!
Wong Pei Tty is pretty good too!and Gao Ling as well!!
chin eei hui has powerful smash and wong pei tty also can smash well though she is small size. i was surprised when wpt smash up to 229 km/h in wc06.hehe.i hav seen her jump smash also which is rare from women.
pollo greysia is also a good smasher
Yeah, Yip Pui Yin*5/8 in the ongoing ABC.
She won in Round 1:
Yip Pui Yin [5/8](Hkg) bt Liu Jie (Chn) 21-19,21-19
Even Zhang Ning also lost once to her and later commented that she plays like a man! Short but cute and energetic!
Du Jin and Yu Yang. These two definitely smash like men.
I would say Yip Pui Yin beats everyone in terms of smash like a man. She can even jump smash!
Wong Pei Tty -> agreed. power and style like a man. could be so because of her body type. aggressive too.
Zhang Ning -> classic ladies styles, less aggresive as XXF IMO
Du Jin -> her power is above average, haven't seen her enough in televised broadcast.
Yu Yang -> err, can't remember.
Pollo Greysia -> a smaller version of Wong Pei Tty, only give heavy attack occasionally. male style
Gao Ling -> sorry i have to disagree. Gao Ling is the ultimate defensive and touch/net player. She lacks power even in comparison in the women circuit. although i have seen her did two outstanding back court smashes in HKO 2006... she basically does drops or passive shots to setup kills. very effective however. very feminine style
Huang Sui -> offensive player that packs good power for a female player. her movement got a big followthrough. nice to watch. female style
Yang Wei -> similar power to Huang Sui, but possess better all around skill. male style
Gu Jun -> o yeah, she is got power alright, a legend which i almost forgot to mention. movement is still kind of feminine. that high pitch "Sharapova Scream" is not very musculine.
Lilyana -> capable of power smashes, but don't do it often since she is mix doubles action mostly. male style motion overall.
Wei Yili -> good offensive power, slightly weaker in defense. female style motion.
Of course its Ye Zhaoying. If compared to that lady, XXF's looks like a half smash.
which man smashes like a woman???
which man smashes like a woman??? power wise or style wise......
this is much more interesting than the title of this thread i believe.....
me... very very stylish, jump, yelling, then smash.. duarrr....
even sleeping baby can return my smash easily
Sun Ai Hwang?
I just finished watching the 2nd set of the 1981 All England WS final where she was playing against the legendary Danish Lene Koppen. Her style is quite aggressive!
Ps: I'm uploading a few videos now. 1974 AE - Rudy Hartono vs Punch Gunalan, 1979 Thomas Cup - Iie Sumirat vs Svend Pri etc.
Sun Ai Hwang from Korea came out of nowhere and won the WS 1981 All England by thrashing every opponent including the then world number one Lene Koppen. There were rumours that Sun Ai Hwang was in fact male who undergone a *** operation and became female.
