    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.

    just my theory.

    stringers (whoever they are) at athen didn't have the official stencils from carlton and yonex so they might have had to improvise, make them on the spot.

    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.....)

    did you watch her play in the finals against zhangjun/gaoling? if you haven't , do so. if you have, and still find her a SKILLFUL player, you must have been watching with a clouded mind. try watching her play with a CLEAR, and NEUTRAL mind.

    coz when i watched HER play, i strongly felt that our skills are totally comparable. i mean, she made the same , darn, silly mistakes i usually make. and mind you, no one should EVER compare themselves to me (honestly)!

    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.

    that's exactly the point i was trying to make. i have NEVER seen another professional player make the mistakes that SHe made. have YOu ever seen another hit a shuttlecock right into the net like an untrained player? and the countless no. of misses. it's almost hilarious.

    ok, i suppose i DID exaggerate a little about us being on par at badminton; FOR as i pointed out before, im not an exquisite player!.. but the MAIN msg i was trying to get across was: she isn't a very good player, let alone be #1!!

    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.
