Ye Zhaoying ( 叶钊颖 )

    I'm wondering if Ye Zhaoying is still playing for China. Didn't hear about her for quite some times. I think when at her best, she's the best woman single player in the world ever! Agree? Also how are the stastistics between her matches against Camilla Martin, and against Gong Zhichao? Thank you

    Oh you are looking for the best woman - that has to be Susi Susante - I think she would make mincemeat of all of them...

    Susi always made it look easy, and her movement about the court was incredibly efficient.

    Susi is much more consistent on tournaments. Not necessarly technically better.

    Re: Ye Zhaoying

    Yes agreed!

    Ye ZhaoYing is very similar to Zhao Jianhua in technical ability relative to the female players that is. On her day, she is unmatched, she has ever beaten Susi in straight sets under 5 points each before. Not once, but 2 or 3 times. Which shows what she is capable of.

    However, she lacks consistency probably because she was beset with some personal problems throughout much of her career.

    Likewise for Zhao, Morten Frost and Ardy Wiranata both have ever admitted publicly to the press that on 'his' day, Zhao is simply untouchable.

    However, Yang Yang was a lot more successful as he was more consistent though I don't think a head-on clash with both players on top of their game will see Yang Yang emerge the winner.

    I consider Ye Zhaoying one of the best female players that appeared lately. Don't heard about personal problems but mostly about her mental strenght. From the games I watched between her and Susi, it's Ye who usually makes the unforced errors. Technically I consider Ye better. After she learned to play more patiently, she was able to beat Susi. Similar story between Han AiPing and Li Ling Wei. I like Han's style but she loses to Li on tournaments. But heard that during practice, Han won most of the times.

    She is quite good in pool. I remember she play golf also. I'm surprised that she can run marathon mainly because of her size.
