    I would say Yi Pui Yin of Hong Kong. She is one of the very few woman who actually can do jump smash.

    Other women jump smashers: Juliane Schenk (GER) and Greysia Polii (INA). But their smashes do not appear to be very hard.

    Women hard smashers: Wang Chen (HKG), Huang Sui (CHN), Yang Wei (CHN), ...

    I think it's got to be Huang Sui. I think she hold the record for the fastest female smash. Over 140 mph I think.

    It somehow doesn't fit the natural picture of a jump-smash.
    From what's in the clip, I'd say that she jumped and smashed ;)

    By the way, did you see the sequence at 4:45? :eek:

    i would say that donna kellogg jump smash espically since its not common to see female players jumpsmashing in some of the tournaments that i play in here though i have seen some of the girls starting to jump smash like the guys but not as hard yet.

    As for internationally have seen very few i remember one of yip pui yun, what a beastly jump smash.

    Gao Ling's smashes is base on angles... Ppl wont expect her to smash to tat place... XXF can smash really good too.... ZN has powerful smashes but she tends to go for lines n it often went out, ambitious smashes... HS is an attacking player... HS n GL made a perfect partnership...
