Well you know more than me, but i cant see how they can stop them, well i suppose i can
What like? Longer tie ins etc...
It must be pretty frustrating for liu xin or lu lan, zhu lin... Never get a look in yet could be top 10 if for another country. I know LL and ZL had chances, but they would still be top ten if playing for say England and with the players in provinces and other teams in china i gues CHN could fill the top 15 out if they wanted too....

LXR is going to be tested in Australia open again where she is the only top WS chinese player. I think her performance there will be reviewed in depth. In other word, she will be under pressure as much as WSX at Swiss open. We will see how she cope with the pressure. To me, she may the true leader in WS that the chinese team is waiting for all this while. WYH is the best at the moment but I think LXR will overtake her soon.

What a loyalty.. Salute..

But JYJ, LL and ZL probably can't wait. Consider all 3 and Zhang Yawen join a foreign country together, they will post a serious threat in Uber Cup to China.

Well, if they go to the same country....that is pretty unlikely!
Where is zhang yawen now?

Back to Li Xuerui and Wang Shixian! I still couldnt understand why Li Yongbo is doing this, fixing matches and trying to promote Li Xuerui to the top 4. Yes she has been playing well all this while but doesnt he ever think the consequences of last minute change would bring to the WS department as a whole.
Unless internally they are doing this as a insurance to cover for any Wang who is seriously injured or out of shape, i dont understand the true motivation and positives that action could bring to the team. That will instil fear, distrust and lack of confidence among the Wangs especially Wang Yihan, her skills and experience are much needed by China plus she is a top seed. Seeing Li Xuerui's rise to the top 4 also made her worried about her position and suspects how much the Chinese coaches placed their trust in her.
Wang Shixian on the other hand is the one at risk of losing her place....just because Li Xuerui has performed well in head to head against foreign players and winning back-to-back titles. Then that, those results dont tie up with what Wang Shixian has achieved since she broke into the world stage. An Asian Games Gold Medallist and All England winner, that's something to shout about and players to be envious of. Even Wang Yihan is jealous of Wang Shixian's achievement up to date despite winning almost every title the SS has to offer, an achievement she could only do it in couple of years time. So why should she be dropped for LXR...no offense to LXR because i remembered LYB is never perfect and sometimes he does make the worst decisions ever such dropping Xia Xuanze for Chen Hong in the Athens Games which turned out to be spot on.
On basis of Wang Shixian's major titles, i think she should be kept because i believe she does have an equal chance of doing well in London plus she is stronger mentally compared to Wang Yihan and Wang Xin. This is more important than skills.

LXR is indeed a talent in WS.. We don't know about LYB true motivation in here, & we could just wait for the final squad submitted by CBA in all departments. However, inspecting WSX & WX recent performance that is not up to the level they should, it is a good move by LYB promoting LXR. First, it is like a backup plan, in case one of the Wang got injured, CBA still have a leftover ammo. Second there is a possibility that LYB thinks the 3 Wangs are too complacent on their current position, therefore promoting LXR could act as a trigger to motivate 3 Wangs back on track.

(1) good skill and techniques
(2) good experience and track record (ie, won a few major titles)
(3) very strong willed and aggressive
But WSX has some problems:
1. She can't smash.
2. Her stamina not the best among the four.
3. Her record against non-CHN players are not the best.
4. her recent form not good.

Back to the topic, in my opinion LXR strength rely on her glorious steep angle drop shot & half smash/slice which is so accurate & just a little above the net tape, apart from her stamina, of course.

LXR remind me the great Li Lingwei

LXR on the other hand is a beast, she has the strength and power to subdue her opponents especially Tai-phoon who tends to trouble the Chinese the most.
But I do remember at one time she does struggle a lot against stroke players like Bae Younjoo and Sung Jihyun.

LXR is the precious diamond which was found by the chinese team. She is more talented than WSX and WX and probably stronger mentality than WYH. She will be dominant WS like XXF or LLW. When you got a player like this, you will do the same as LYB. The question is whether there is enough time for her to be equipped and shine in London olympics 2012. LYB know his players better than us. Let us wait and see.

LYB wants her in top 4 so he has a choice of who to send...no other agenda...its his job to make them the best they can.
Anybody know the rules about injuries? ie if someone gets injured after the entries submitted can they be subsituted by another if they had qualified? or is it just from the reserve list down the rankings?
03-21-2012, 07:13 AM #84
Well maybe LYB is in love with LXR.... Hmmm... Food for thought, anyone???
