    Thanks, nice info :) I wonder if other countries could afford to fund such a sophisticated technology with the limited prize that BWF's tournaments provide (in comparison to tennis for instance)

    sometimes its the intangibles such as prestige. think of the downstream potential, not necessarily for the CBA or the players themselves, but chinese badminton as a whole. put it this way, after the chinese national team wins 50% of all major tournaments and flights, then other foreign nationals (or semi-casual players) would all want to go to china (tourism $$$) to train at one of the badminton training centers. in essence this is why players go to malaysia/indonesia/china/denmark to train, when they cannot find optimum training potential in their home countries. because they want to have that "china experience", just like why die hard martial artists go to shaolin temple to train.

    This "Chinese players grind down Lee Chongwei" BS has gotta stop. The implication here being what? Finish that thought for me, that if he met non-Chinese players in the earlier rounds he will somehow have an easier time; that said non-Chinese players wouldn't strategize to maximize their chances or otherwise play their best; for that matter, they wouldn't do the very same against a Chinese player, say Lin Dan?

    Whether it was your intent or not, you just called into question and insulted the professionalism of the entire cohort of badminton players. Lee Chongwei may very well have an easier time against Kenichi Tago or Nguyen Tien Minh compared to Chen Long and Du Pengyu. But that is because Chen and Du are better players, not because Tago or Nguyen are any less willing to "grind" him down.

    The story from Denmark continues.

    It turned out that WS winner WYH also got bitten by bugs in Denmark and is having a severe skin problem on her arm that forced her to skip a match in the Chinese Badminton Super League. LXR withdrew from the Denmark Open early due to the same problem.

    It was reported that the bed in the hotel was too soft so WYH slept on the floor and got bitten by the bugs.

    If we follow the script of the AC incidence in WC final of LDvsLCW - perhaps the korean
    change WYH's bed and let loose the bug, which is actually a mini drone...
    but WYH being the fighter that she is gritted her teeth and played the final and win
    at the expense of her beauty...
    I have a strange feeling that the same bug must have bitten LCW just before his
    semifinal vs KT....

    Hard to prove unless you can catch the same bug and do a test.
