[quote=lexluthor1975;1312548]i think she's one of the gems of Chinese women's doubles, although of course she's also a very good mixed doubles player. she's been through several partners and has been very versatile, as proven by the diff. titles she won with them. i won't be able to name all of her achievements but what comes to mind now are the ff:
The way you word it seems like she has been around the block several times...maybe should reword that she has played with several partners

I just cannot recall any other doubles player comparable to ZYW who could do that and win big with every and so many partners (7 all together??)!!!

She also proves to every girl out there that height is not a problem too!

Have to say, she's one versatile lady.
Guess she didn't have the luck of the draw in terms of partners and achievements at the 'prime honours' like Olympics and consistent partners.
But really in terms of achievements in a holistic sense ( both breath and scope of wins) as a womens' doubles player, she probably ranks on par with Ge Fei and Gao Ling. Of course in terms of prestige and domination of the competition during their reign, both Ge Fei and Gao Ling will always outshine her.
- 4 unbeaten years in all international competitions between 2 Olympic titles for Ge Fei and Gu Jun. With a mixed doubles world title somewhere in there for Ge Fei.
- 2 Olympic mixed titles and 6 All-England ladies doubles for Gao Ling, something any player can only dream about.

In xd, average to short lady partner can be a plus, harder for the opponent's shots to nail her on plus extra dexterity help her return smashes better
Maybe except for Ra, i find tall gals like juhl and Lee Hyo Jung a little bit clumsy at times.

Again, ZYW got the Silver with changed partner.
I'm also wondering, in spite of her great skills, why she seems to have had difficulties in grabbing the Gold in the finals. I thought it was partly due to her weak partners. But I might have to think about it more honestly.
(When I watched their game in the first round beating the #1 seed LYD/LHJ, I thought they were a great team. But they lost to their team mates in the final.)
