    Dare to dream, Shi Yuqi, what's there to lose ?!

    When Viktor Axelsen twice, Jan O Jorgensen, Chou Tien Chen, among others couldn't stop the legendary Lee Hyun Il these two months, who would've thought Shi Yuqi is the one to do it. Who knows, maybe not the next meeting, then the next next encounter or the one after that. Keep trying, keep going, keep fighting, and you shall overcome, Shi Yuqi.

    Wait until LCW reached 36 years old, maybe SYQ got chance.

    Yes, the CHN young guns still need a bit of time to strengthen their foundation , consolidate their gains and experience, establish consistency before ascending the summit again and stay there.

    Nah, don't have to wait that long. when Chen Long started to beat Lee CW not just for the first time, nobody thought he could do it.

    Now that the living legend Lee CW is 33 years old and past his prime, the chances of somebody (not anybody) beating him has increased. Didn't Brice Leverdev just did it last week, albeit LCW was listless and possibly had a hamstring pull during that match.

    I mean LCW just have to be a bit off form for Shi Yuqi to stand a chance against him. After watching how he overcame Lee Hyun Il just now, I am reluctant to make the mistake of underrating or underestimating him too much. I venture to say,even if LCW is not having an off day, it's still not impossible. Remember, Wei Nan beat him twice.

    Never mind, all this is simply theoretical or hypothetical, nobody is sure. Let' see how it goes.

    To be honest, before the commencement of Finals Day, I didn't rule out the possibility of CHN going home empty-handed, with Chen Qingchen costing them the WD and XD due to her fatigue, He Bingjiao's inconsistency and fitness problem a real concern, and Shi Yuqi the least likely to beat the in-form master Lee Hyun Il.

    Now I can only say, life and human affairs are difficult to predict most of the time.

    Shi Yu Qi's game is the most impressive among China's crop of youngsters, I think - more so than Qiao Bin. He seems to have a much better all-around game, in terms of defence, attack, movement and tactical awareness. Would love to see him take on Kento Momota someday.

    I just checked the results and noticed all four titles were won by Team CHN in two convincing straight sets. Can't get any better than that.

    Rejuvenated Team China post Rio going strong at SS Premier and SS. CQC/ZSW, LJH/LYC, HBJ, QB, now SYQ filling where their senior left. Still the country to beat.

    When I look at ZSW/CQC playing, feels like looking at the current best XD in the world and one of the best I've seen for a long time

    China squad is back to business after Denmark empty-handed episode, they scooped 4 titles through the young guns. Maiden Superseries title for upcoming star Shi Yuqi, this 20 years old young man stole the limelight in Paris, a thrilling second game when evergreen Lee Hyun Il saved four match points but Shi finally could cope his nerves and close the match, 21-19. It's an unexpected ending for Lee who defeated three seeded players en route to the final including second seed and Rio bronze medalist Viktor Axelsen. Earlier of final day, 19 years old He Bingjiao clinched second Superseries title after JPN Open, outplayed the below-par Zhang Beiwen who produce many errors, an anticlimax WS final that ended with identical scoreline, 21-9 / 21-9.

    The Danish oldies, Boe/Mogensen nailed third French Supersries crown after 2010 & 2014 edition, Thai pair couldn't finished the final game as Bodin Isara suffered left knee injury, wishing him speedy recovery! Chen Qingchen as stated in post match interview will try to emulate her illustrious double specialist senior Zhao Yunlei and she starts to grabbed two titles here. Zheng/Chen world ranking will rise at top 5 soon and no longer time we'll see them on top position if they can keep consistency at next tournaments, what a spectacular result by these fast-rising teens!

    Not on purpose. I believe that CBA wanted to ensure that he is good enough not to be thrashed by the big boys before sending him out to play in the Senior Circuit. Sending a player to compete before he is ready can psychologically damage his/her career beyond repair.

    according to what you said,CBA do this on purpose :p
    I think he has problems with his spinal ligament so that he can't do proper strength training. He's perhaps still during his rehab so CBA won't let him play too much
