    After watching them losing in IO and SC, I can tell they are slower than when they were in London. And making way more mistakes. Probably time to hang up their boots.

    is this the reason why Zhang Ning and Cai Yun come to HK for training?

    Nice find. I don't know the answer to your question, though.

    Me too, I think Cai/Fu may retire sooner than we thought, give them another year at most, bearing in mind they are CHN players with so many others waiting in the wings. For sure we won't see them in the next Olympics.

    As for Zhang Ning, I sense that she may postpone her coming back to coach, for how long, I don't know. My view is that for a first-time mother with a newborn who's not even a year old, she will be most reluctant to leave her beloved baby at home while she travels one or two weeks overseas regularly for work. Perhaps,that explains why Chen Jin is roped in as an assistant coach to the CHN WS.

    If Qiu's injury is serious, maybe Cai Yun cannot retire this year.

    Let's see if Qiu will play next week in Singapore. Justin, please update us with the latest!!

    Friend, my updates are from those websites you recommended; you know as much as I do. And sometimes even the Chinese media gets it wrong. I'd appeal to the Chinese forummers here, even if their source is the grapevine.

    Anyway, my guess is Qiu will withdraw even if his knee injury is very slight (just a twitch?), just so to avoid aggravating it, the WC is much more important. I think Cai Yun's role now is to help groom and nurture the next crop of CHN MD; same goes for Lin Dan in the MS as Xia Xuanze has said.

    @ezish Better go see them ASAP, it looks like they're retiring soon, based on how they've been playing. Hope you'll be able to see them in China! You're going to the WC?

    Really? Shoot.
    I want them to play longer. Don't retire so soon.

    Cai Yun's body language is quite clear that he is not going to play much longer.

    On the other hand, Fu HaiFeng already said that he never thought about retirement. Perhaps we will see Fu HaiFeng / Zhang Nan combination as soon as this year.

    Actually FHF was originally registered to play a tournament with Hong Wei. But they withdrew.

    I would live to see him play with Zhang nan though.

    Hong Wei can't possibly be a partner for Fu HaiFeng. Shen Ye and Zhang Nan are the most suitable partners among the current players. Liu XiaoLong would be an exciting choice but he plays way too risky to complement Fu HaiFeng.

    Cai yun and Fu haifeng said they will retire together one day but i think Li Yongbo will ask Fu to stay, cause that's good for the team. Anyway, cai&fu will at least play for Asian games next year. What's next? We will see...

    Cai yun throwing all his racket in the semi final is a sign of him retiring from international badminton? Or what? Anyway, noticed that fu/cai didn't really have any communications or look to each other in their match against ahsan/setiawan. It seems like both are playing their own game and enjoying it individually rather than a team though.

    i think there was another time in a recent HK Open where i saw them play like that. however i thought CY is retiring after WC13? is that a fact?

    I've seen a few games where they don't talk to each other at all.
    Maybe they only stuck together cause CY was going to call it quits soon anyway?

    ^ Well, they probably see each other more than their own family or wives over the past 10 years, so what else is there to say?

    they beat ahsan/hendra easily in 2012, but they lost 3 times easily to ahsan/hendra in 2013. wow.
