"Whoever gets picked, their task is to assist Wang Yihan as much as possible should things go smoothly. Let the experienced player go for the gold."
What does this even mean, assist Wang Yihan? Sounds weird to me. How can they assist her in any other way than winning their own matches of course, which they would want to do for themselves anyway.
All the chinese top girls have the capacity to go for gold on their own. LXR is for example always beating WYH. Do you think that if they were to meet in SF, the task of LXR is to give an easy victory to WYH? I'll believe it when I see it... Possibly they would play hard in 1st set and the winner of 1st set should get an easy 2nd set...

CBA will not risk letting her play in the Gold Medal. Too inexperienced. Furthermore, Wang Yihan has played in the same venue last year. She and WX are familiar with the court and drift while LXR doesn't . That is important thing to note also.

LXR's good fortune at being selected for LOG may not be totally surprising owing to her stellar performance the last couple of months but I'm quite worried whether she can handle the pressure of the burden of expectation.
If the sohu.com poll is anything to go by where question #3 asks who will win WS gold at London Olympics, she is actually voted as the no.1 candidate, ahead of WYH,WX, and others - I'm quite taken aback.
As of now, out of 5118 pollsters, LXR has 1972 (38.53%) votes, WYH 1817 (35.5%), WX 864 (16.88%), Others 465 (9.09%).
As it is,her OG selection in place of WSX has aroused some dissenting voices in CHN, I wonder what would be the reaction or backlash if she falters or fails to progress at least to the semi-final - will it break her career? Her relatively young age and,more importantly,lack of experience on big occasions are cited as the main drawback but,obviously,LYB and coaches are willing to overlook or downplay that and place their confidence in her sterling results in recent months.
Let us hope she is in the form of her life during the London Olympics. Wish her all success!

CBA may forgive her but post match harassment will resume
She does not need to worry about this now. However, if accident really happens and she fails, she has a lot to answer to ongoing press harassment and also going to receive hate messages from fans.
I reckon it may turn ugly for her after the tournament.
If all three of them fail, they will be harassed and criticised day and night. And this good for nothing biased Gill Clark will repeatedly use the same excuse to belittle them every time they step onto court.
Just like how she always (nothing new to add) mention about WYH's flop in UC and then omitted from AG. Such an obnoxious commentator. LXR will face more than just her if that happens. Bear that in mind.

LXR's aggressive attacking style requires a lot of energy,she has to be supremely fit with great stamina. It'd be better for her to adopt some defensive stroke play coupled with deception a la WSX to be a more balanced,complete player.
She's still young and strong and has the physicality to play fast and furious badminton but how long can she keep going like that, a few years perhaps? Look at Lin Dan,he's slowing down,not attacking as much nowadays.

I believe Chinese players,or Chinese people in general,are no longer what we thought the obedient,submissive type, not in a country founded on revolution - it's more to do with their putting nation before self mentality, not so much kowtowing to authority. The present generation,esp, is so vocal and expressive of their feelings. As we know from their microblogs,Cai Yun was visibly upset, Gong Weijie disappointed and regretful at WSX missing out on the Olympics, WSX herself still sorrowful, not to mention all the other online reactions. This is modern China.

Wish LXR to become the female version of Lin Dan ! She is such a delight to watch. In this regard, beginning to miss Wang Xin who is similarly wonderful too.

As far as LXR, we have not seen enough of her to know if she has the ability to make the necessary adjustments when Plan A fails. She is a veritable attacking machine but there are days when the machine isn't running as smoothly and Plan B has to be employed. Let's see if she has a Plan B.

I'd say her age and her furious attacking play is directly connected. We were all like that when we were young remember? The question is indeed: how long can she keep it up. She's skyrocketing at the moment, so she better not run out of fuel before the OG ends.
If LXR can, over time obviously, complete her playstyle with the experience, stamina and solid play of WYH, she will truly be the WR1 for a long time. Trouble is, you can never tell the future. Physical issues, mental problems, ego, ... it all took victims in the past.

Gillian Margaret Clark commenting at BWF tournaments
That's your opinion.
If it was BWF's opinion, we won't have Gillian Margaret Clark commenting at BWF tournaments anymore.
