    Thanks, @dieter_spath , for your appreciation and encouragement. Also many thanks for your regular input on the CHN players.

    Right, generally speaking and widely regarded, English and Mandarin (the Chinese language) are two such dissimilar languages that quite a number of Chinese words have no English equivalent(s) and, to a certain extent, vice versa; especially difficult to translate are Chinese idioms and sayings. Purely my personal opinion.

    In my case, because of my inadequate command of Mandarin, I have to resort to using a Chinese-English dictionary but for lack of a really good one (partly because I'm not willing to pay for it, still not sure if there's one available), I often have to guess at the meaning or make an intelligent choice of the sense(s) used from the context. Not only that, for fear of getting it wrong (again due to my very limited Mandarin), I play safe and stick as close to the original text as possible which is not always a good idea. Therefore where the accuracy of my translation is found wanting, it's entirely my fault for which I seek your forgiveness and indulgence. So if any of you spot any error in my amateurish attempt,please feel free to correct and improve upon it.

    Apparently, Zhang Ning is still holding on to her position as chief coach to the CHN WS but there's no mention of when she is coming back.

    Surprisingly, GC the commentator pronounces her name quite correctly. So did the umpire,even better,in fact he got it exactly right, during the LXR-JS match.

    I believe that even a really good dictionary can not help for Chinese-English translation. @justin , I really like your translation, really good!

    I was expecting a battle between LXR and the queen of the IND PSS , Saina Nehwal. Though
    Juliane and LXR also delivered a breath-taking match, I'm still looking forward the next encounter between Saina and LXR. Could it happen in Singapore? let's see

    You're too kind, thanks again.

    As LXR has played and beaten Saina not long ago, I was happy she got to play JS this time, esp when JS is in top form throughout the INA Open'13. For the SIN Open this week, I'm hoping to see LXR match up with Intanon R instead as the latter has been playing her best badminton lately but,alas, IR has withdrawn from the SIN Open.

    In fact,looking at the draw of the SIN Open, LXR may get to face off the rising YipPY again in the QF before yet another clash with Soldier Schenk in the SF, and only then a possible final showdown with Saina that you hope for. But Saina who is in the opposite half of the draw will first in R1 have to avenge her defeat on Gu Juan who stunned her a few weeks ago in the SCG Thai GPG and after that possibly Wang Yihan or perhaps Sayaka Takahashi awaits her at the SF before she gets a crack at the title.

    Indeed, based on the lineup,the SIN Open is in no way inferior in strength as far as the WS is concerned as compared with the just-concluded INA Open. My primary consideration is whether LXR's bandaged left knee is good to go and how much she wanted to win it and how far she's willing to push herself bearing in mind the WC in August is the real target, so no point taking any unnecessary risk. If the match-ups turn out as we're hoping for, the prospects of being treated to a series of top-class fighting badminton are drooling. Let the battle begins.

    the translation outcome will be more satisfactory if one manually fine tunes the auto translation from http://fanyi.youdao.com/
    with the http://www.mdbg.net/chindict/chindict.php then makes the necessary realignments, but i must admit it's rather tedious works

    btw Chen Jin is very patient and attentive in his new role as the (assistant) coach, after Tang Xuehua finishing his briefs, Chen Jin will carry on animatedly until the time is off. He should be a successful coach in future.

    I wish him all the best in his new career!

    The facial expression still remains. The man was too harsh for the little girl.

    Good point. Maybe LXR lost the WC final on purpose, to avoid this curse.
