    Congrats to Juliane.
    Coming from Germany I am very disappointed of the situation with her and the national association. Having such a successful talent it has to be possible to find a solution everybody can live with.
    Although Julie is not alone - two other players also quitted to work with DBV, which is a clear sign that the 'official' badminton world in Germany unfortunately is not working well.
    To my guess Juliane will continue to follow her own way.
    I wish her all the best and every time I speak to her she is very positive, so hopefully we see her in future.

    Who are the "two other" players supposed to be then?

    Don't quite remember how the German olympic funding worked but, if it was like ours, not going to the WC seems not the cleverest thing to do. Of course the reason for not going could be a completely financial one now ...
    But this SSP result might be good enough already to entitle her to the highest level of funding from the German NOC

    So Juliane Schenk is just another Martina Navratilova in badminton scene.

    A female homosexual! It explains few things then (at least for myself)!

    She is a very inspirational player; a true fighter on court, but very humble and full of sportmanships. Even more incredible that she reached the final of the Indonesian Open without coaching. It's sad how things worked out with her and the German badminton association.

    The other two players are Karin Schnaase and Lisa Heidenreich.

    Regarding the funding of players I tell you a secret: the best support Germany can give to a player is to employ him/her in the army. This is what Juliane also has: an official job as a higher degree army member.

    A direct sponsoring of NOK could be an option, however I could understand if the NOK does not take a position between the national badminton association and Juliane.

    Schnaase already announced her retirement from international badminton a long time ago didn't she? Must've been because of too many injury problems and time to move on shouldn't it? Pretty sure I read about it well before any issues with Schenk surrounding the Sudirman Cup participation ...
    And yes, I was aware of the Bundeswehr thing, we used to have something similar on a much smaller scale but pretty much obsolete because of budget cuts.

    You are right regarding the timing of Schnaase, however the relation between Germany's Badminton Association and players in general made it easier for her to quit.
    Sad that it is not possible to find a way both sides are comfortable with.

    Juliane was the mainstay of the team during the European Team Championships. Without her it would be safe to say Germany didn't stand a chance for their historic win.

    DBA didn't apparently have any issues with her playing and even doing double-duty, and her unique situation vis-a-vis coaches and her personal life was no secret either, back then.

    I cannot see this entire drama as being a loss to Juliane very much. She is a very fit athlete, but age is not on her side. Still, she has reached her highest-ever BWF ranking. She is playing the best badminton of her life. As long as she has the monetary backing of her sponsors there is nothing to prevent her from playing when, where and how she wants. SS/SSP winnings also help, and she's making a decent living from reaching the semis/finals regularly.

    The loss is the DBA's and the German national team's, and it does appear this could have been prevented by some considerate gestures all round.

    I'm pretty sure she will lose this funding now that she has been thrown out of the national squad. As far as I know being part of the national squad is essential to be a sport soldier in Germany.

    ^A historical moment in German badminton and the official website of the DBV tries to celebrate Marc's 14th rank instead. It's so ridiculous!

    They've had problems for ages. I'm surprised it's taken this long.

    World meet will be a more open affair, says Schenk

    By KNG ZHENG GUAN
    Wednesday July 17, 2013

    http://www.thestar.com.my/Sport/Badm...en-affair.aspx

    Excerpts:

    ...“China, as the hosts, will definitely have the advantage and always do well when it comes to major events like the World Championships or the Olympics,” said Schenk, who is one of the few players to have beaten all the top Chinese shuttlers.

    “But I believe that this year will be different ... the world meet will be a more open affair, even if I’m not competing.

    ...“I definitely believe that it will not be a one-sided affair because the world meet is different compared to the Super Series events as each country can only have a limited number of players competing. That should trim China’s advantage.

    “Personally, I’m rooting for Intanon because she’s my favourite player. She came close to winning the All-England. Perhaps, this time she’ll come away with the world title.”

    A lot of people see something in Ratchanok! She does have what it takes to win the big titles, in terms of talent, but she needs to mature mentally a bit more before she can obtain consistent results. But, I think this discussion would belong in Ratchanok's thread.
