    i learned of ZN in 1994 in the classic uber cup singles final battle against mia audina. She fought hard but lost in 3 sets. I think LYB saw something in her that he wanted to keep her around. I myself have said before ZN has the near perfect WS physique and a hard working attitude. I think LYB saw the long term potential in her and willing to work to improve and refine her. That's is one feature even his critic admire, LYB can pick them. He let go wang chen, pi H, and many gals before and none of them come close to ZN. He made the right choice again in 2008 OG. For ZN, what a way to wrap up her career as a player. Because her long career and vast experience, i'm sure she would have a coaching capacity in the national team.

    Cooler, thanks for quoting my posts in this thread - keeps her legend live on longer!

    This isn't an I told you so post....because I didn't comment previously and I know hindsight is great....but I found reading these posts funny after OG!! Sorry to embarass the members quoted. No offence

    These posts serve to highlight her situation well and the fact she managed to overcome these issues (which were then and still are now quite valid) is another credit to ZN.

    Like I also said in another OG thread. We will never see another ZN again.

    that's why in the sichuan earthquake relief auction, ZN's shirt commanded the highest bids, more than any other china MS, WS, MD, WD, XD shirts;)
