WX will definitely choose to side with WSX but whether/what can be done from her side to make that happen is another thing to wonder.
Yes, that's true consider this. If the ranking stays as it was and rules forbid the country the flexibility to select among the four players and must go according to the ranking order, LYB could just order WSX to fake an injury and produce a medical certificate to confirm she is not fit to play hence giving leeway to LXR who also qualified on merit because she is ranked fourth..
That would be unfair to WSX....

Remember ZhengBo? He has some clashes with ZhangJun and LYB in 2010 and was "returned" to the provincial team a few months before the WC 2010 (in Paris). But LYB still let ZB play in Paris.
But I have to admit, at this very moment, it is not very clear whether WSX is throwing games away deliberately. But if WSX loses to Saina again in the next two or three months, that would be compelling evidence.

oh, so it's the situation. but still, if she will do that trick with saina, i afraid it can give saina more self-confidence. and at the time, she maybe get LXR out of the way, but saina with new recipe self confidence can be the wall between her and her dream. so, hope she will calculate it very well.

It depended on what my options were. If I liked being in the team and had longer term ambitions as a coach then I would not be too concerned about OG. If I disliked being in the team and wanted to work elsewhere in the future I would probably get what I could whilst I could.
Either way if she decides to throw games to prevent LXR from qualifying it is pretty selfish and does not potray her in a good light to employers from any background, never mind not winning her any friends.

i think WYH may give WSX a hand since it is possible that WYH might get ditched too, not just WSX. We all remember what happen in Uber2010 and the many months afterwards. Even in 2011, WYH's record against non-CHN players is not as good as WX's. That's why, I think, WYH may also throw games in favour of Saina, should the opportunities arise.
The chance of WX not getting selected to play the Olympics is, IMHO, quite small. Her H2H record against non-CHN players is still very impressive, even better than Lin Dan's. For the year to date, she lost in the first round in All England 2012 (against SungJH) and Korea Open 2012 (against BaeYJ). That's the only thing against her.

I think a lot of the guesses here are wild to say the least. Unless someone here is very close to the Chinese team, we can only guess what their relationship towards each other is. Obviously there is a competition between these 4 players. It's the world top 4 in Women Singles for god's sake. With LXR now on 4th place, I guess LYB has enough scenarios planned out for whatever happens. The next few tournaments will decide the role of LXR in this years top tournaments.
As for the other players. WYH will not be pulled by LYB. She has redeemed herself since that Uber2010 incident and is back stronger than ever. It's the pressure I'm afraid of during this years Uber. She'll have to face her inner demons and get rid of that legacy once and for all. For that occasion, the other players like WX and LXR there is no such burden. WSX has the burden of having to prove herself again after a small dip but that is unrelated to UBer2012.
We'll all have to wait and see where LXR fits in. OH boy, this years gonna be a tasty year for Badminton :P.

i think, the most fair way to the case is let them 4 play in OG. afterall, they give their effort to be there, and it's just unfair if 1 can't go to olympic after all their efforts.

the most unfair thing about this whole fiasco is how the three players will be selected. If they were to be selected solely by WR points, that would be fair. But as it stands right now, the decision will be based on how one person thinks or feels, ie LYB.

I dont rate WSX chances to get a medal anyway. I think she she will lose to someone else.

To me, she is on par with Wang Yihan in terms of skills...but the problem is her attacks are absolutely horrendous to the extent that she could even fail a net kill that badly..

And Li was all smiles after her final victory: “This is amazing for me to win here. It was unexpected as this is a very important final. As for the future, I just want to do well in tournament, and I’ll be happy to be a back up for China in the Olympics if needed.
Does it mean that she is supportive of her three Wangs compatriots to represent China in the Olympics and she will only respond when there's an emergency ???
What you guys think about the quote by her lol?
04-06-2012, 09:12 AM #152
Where is the quote from?
The quote is no surprise. She, as a juniornin the team, isn't going tonsay i want the place at OG and hope I can take it.
Firstlymbecause she is number 4 so on paper not worthy of a place and secondly because she would seem arrogant to readers and to her teammates she would be aienated.

I couldn't understand why Li Xuerui is not participating in the 2012 Australian Open.
Currently, with her good form; I would be quite sure that she would be the WS winner of this tournament.
