    If all top 4 seeds reach semis we would see a fake match no matter if played first or after... while on the other hand if Saina defeats Yihan no matter who her opponent in the final is she would win.

    Yihan would be boiling inside a pressure cooker with such pressure of expectations over her

    As in the MS,my head says WYH, my heart originally goes to WX but her recent patchy form and inconsistency inject a dose of realism into me and now my heart goes to LXR.

    First, I believe WYH can handle her half all by herself, all those close-shave matches and her amazing comeback after the Uber 2010 debacle and in the Uber 2012 vs Sung are valuable enriching experiences that strengthens her mental resolve and ability to tackle pressure though some others might see it the other way.

    Second,she is the one among the three CHN WS who can deal with Saina best. I believe LXR too with her superior skills can handle Saina only thing is her lack of experience could cause her to stumble as what happened in their last INA Open encounter. But LXR is drawn in the other half where only Sung JY is likely to pose a serious threat - I always regarded Sung as the main CHN threat.

    In the end,how did I choose? Head or heart? Heart rules again, LXR, I go for you!

    I know,the poll asks which WS will win gold,not who you pick but,you know,we are not completely rational beings, so my decision is based on 40% reason 60% emotion i.e. more heart than head this time.

    Badminton, especially WS, needs an artist to step up on the podium again. I will raise my (thus far) solitary voice and shout out loud for Cheng Shao Chieh.

    I say LXR wins gold...only choke is LXR plays WX in one SF, and TB in the other SF and that TB SF match is played before LXR's SF match.

    So, you are the adventurous type, you must be lonely all by yourself.

    Never heard of her But everybody needs a fan! Make sure to shout louder than all the chinese fans, coz otherwise you won't be heard.
    Not that you'll be heard anyway ... Perhaps shouting in a moment of silence?

    From what I've seen, CSC has been a little flaky of late. While she possesses all the talent, she can blow hot and cold quicker than any other WS player. If she can maintain the "hot" side long enough, she surely has the creds to challenge for a medal.

    Not examined the draw in detail but voted LXR, I think physically she will be in better shape than her opponents, especially in the later rounds.

    just barking more often and louder - they'll give their own sensation and feeling of flying high

    Oh,i'm actually getting a bit worried that LXR is taking the lead at the poll similar to what happened in the sohu.com poll for mainland CHN fans. Better that LXR isn't aware of all this polls favouring her to take gold or I wonder how it'll affect her as far as the pressure of the burden of expectation is concerned.

    Maybe CBA and her coaches,teammates,colleagues,support staff have different expectations from her,hopefully their frontrunner is WYH, that'll take a load of pressure off her, what with her glaring lack of experience on such a big occasion;it'll be too much for a young shoulder to bear.

    By saying this,I seem to contradict myself as I've let my heart ruled and voted for youthful exuberance,in LXR, over rich experience and maturity,in WYH, as well as experience but inconsistency,in WX.

    When I first cast my vote,I had thought here in BC the chosen one would more likely be WYH, surprise,surprise. As a parting shot,hoped WX unexpectedly rise to the occasion to bowl me over.
