Been enjoying Axiata Cup 2013 and especially Carolina Marin's games. Props go to her for flying the flag for Spanish Badminton and she has claimed some good scalps, looks in her element. Anyone able to describe or replicate how she serves, almost crosses her arms seems very deceptive and moves the angle from center to tramlines, original?

She's definitely a wonderful player. I've watched her match against Saina Nehwal at the Indonesian Open. Indeed she has a great and beautiful backhand service. Only thing I really dislike about her, is that horrendous scream after each point (assault to your eardrums). She's not the only one though (couple of Chinese players come to mind).
Spain is doing something right and it's good to see more European countries are bringing something more to the world of badminton.

Does anyone know Carolina's background? I watched her play against WYH in the Singapore Open R16 and the crowds were certainly impressed with her fighting spirit.

she won the Finnish Open 2013 with style, 1st match 21-921-11, 2nd round 21-1121-8 , QF 21-821-5, Semis 21-1121-8 and The FInals 21-1021-15, it's quite insane for european player

Indeed Carolina Marin impressed me during the recent Singapore Open 2013.
Hope to see her climb up the WR ladder soon.

Carolina Marin versus Wang Yihan during the Singapore Open 2013
I've captured some pictures of Marin in action during R16 .
She gave a very good account of herself and remained very steady and focused most of the time. WYH had the benefit of two Chinese coaches, including recently retired Chen Jin, to assist her, whereas Marin had none at her side.
Marin made WYH fight hard for her points and the latter even had to dive trying to save a point to no avail. Although she lost G1, Marin was in great form during G2 when she won easily 21-11, scoring numerous points with her smashes and net play.
Many fans were hoping for an upset in the rubber game but Marin was a little impatient towards the end and made a few unforced errors like smashing into the net. In the end, skill and experience told and WYH romped home for a 21-18, 11-21, 21-17 victory.
Despite winning a total of 56 points against WYH's 53, Marin still lost mainly through inexperience. But watch out for this young lady from Spain whose talent was vividly demonstrated at this Singapore Open!

I like her style of play, and most importantly she's demonstrated that she's got tremendous fighting spirit from the way she battled back to win against Sung and took the second game from Ratchanok. A lot of other players, both seasoned and not, would have crumbled under that kind of pressure.
I hope that she'll go on to even greater heights, but I worry that there's only so far that she can go considering what must be the limited training resources in Spain. Someone mentioned in another thread that she had at least spent some time training in Thailand, so hopefully she'll continue training overseas if that's what she needs to take her game to the next level.
