    I have a feeling after watching the interview in local CCTV the night after that XXF was not very happy and both sat apart. I don't know Chinese so I didn't know the interview in details but every time LD seems try to make a joke, XXF from her body language didn't seem too happy and LD have to refer to XXF and she still not laughing. Something wasn't right between the two.
    Not surprise if XXF is quiting badminton or split up with LD.

    that's totally unsubstantiated rumor.

    I didn't see the program but from what you described, I think XXF was just still feeling sad about losing in the final. In particular, in such a TV show, she must be reminded (indirectly) all the time that the man beside her, LD, is OG champion, while she herself is not. This is definitely not something that can make her happy. ;)

    Just to clarify the OP has fabricated this rumour based on a video clip in a language they didn't understand on a TV show where they were getting interviewed separately.

    The OP should be a Tabloid Gossip columist with material like this.

    Unsubstantiated gossip, yes. But not a bad guess based on human nature.

    Often success leads to break-ups. Example: Lance Armstrong. His wife was his "rock" through his illness and come back. But once he reached the pinnacle he cast her off like a pair of old shoes. Similarly struggling actors who get fame dump their faithful, long-suffereing partners.

    That being said, there are lots of exception. I hope that LD and XXF have eternal happiness.

    so this mean she's not retiring? or was the rumour just about the break up? because it'd be terrible for china to lose 2 top players, never mind being #1/2 in the world, former world champs, OG Gold/Silver medalists...

    Not a rumor but it was a question that like to know the answer based on what I saw during the interview. (Not what I heard, speculation may be ?)
    People from China who watched the interview might ask the same question. The body language was so obvious that something was just not right.
    Hope I am wrong.

    Your thread title didn't imply a question ;)

    From the match commentators in Australia during the finals, ZN is retiring, but XXF is seriously considering retirement after OG08.

    I haven't heard since then, but I would guess that's the main concern. After that match, the channel switched back to something else *darn Australian coverage*
