I have been wondering why their rackets have only a small carlton logo on them? Perhaps they forgot their stencil and had to hand make them? Looks odd with a small logo there.

One of his ambition is to win an olympic gold.

Go to the the pictures thread and see yonex rackets from different players have 2 distinct YY logo styles. At first i thot yonex had changed their logo but i later. Lin dan mp99 YY logo look original. Others like kenneth J., the YY logos look clonies

when I first saw the picture, I thought I saw Federer playing badminton (the head band)
The logo.......perhaps they prefer the small ones?? (They probably downloaded the logo off the internet.....)

laughable c, I think YOU aren't very "neutral" here... I doubt your skills get anywhere near Gail Emms' unless you are a very good player(?).
With the same logic, have you seen some of Kim Dong Moon's silly mistakes? I'm sure you can make the same ones, does this make you comparable to him?
Let's be serious will we...

I thought the stencils (ADVERTS) had to be smaller because of the strict advertising rights at the olympics where the official sponsors come first and not the team or individual sponsors.
I'm surprised no one has noticed the bags, they were clearly Yonex but instead of the Yonex logo they had the countries names embroidered on the side with a very small flag logo.

also, the 'neutral' i meant was, to put aside partiality for her and to adopt a proper mind set to judge to way she plays..

i think Emms played pretty well in the Olympics final. despite losing, both Robertson and Emms were playing at the very highest levels. Emms did make a few mistakes in the first game, but when she really got into it in the second and third game, i think she was actually as sharp as Gao Ling if not sharper. the reason why Zhang/Gao won in the end was that they managed to gain ground strategically by pinning Gail in the rear court more often by serving high to her. Gail was weaker at the rear court, that created numerous chances for Zhang/Gao to force a clear out of them and then Zhang pounds the birdie to the floor.
