    Default Mia Audina stops playing badminton

    Dutch badmintonstar Mia Audina announced today that she will stop playing badminton from this minute on. She wants to support her husband, who is a gospel singer. To bad, but it's here choice. I loved watching here. My country loses one of the best players there has ever been.

    Hey what a pity, she was always one player i always loved to watch, not to mention the memory of the crowds who always cheer her on. We've lost a great player.

    She's only 26. But stil 13 years in the top of the game. Perhaps she will make her comeback in a few years. But properbly not, she aimed for the Olympics, defeating the Chinese in their own home.

    It will be a shame if this turns out to be true, however I still beleive she has a good chance of Winning if she competes in 2008, since the new wave of CHN players are not reaching the levels of their predeccessors yet (Although still two years to go), and Zhang Ning ageing, and XXF Nervous in big events.

    She still has some of the best stroke play and deceptive techniques of any player (arguably man or woman).

    That husband needs to get his priorities straight, if you ask me. Tragic, no less.

    that is a more plausible reason than the official one.
    Anyway, i will miss her talent in the WS scene.
    I agree with james20, chinese WS are currently tops but very beatable
    by caliber of mia audina.

    Without Mia, women's badminton is even more boring. Look at the top 10, only Mia and Kaora are non-Chineses. Kaori was never able to threaten the Chinese women.

    from badzine.fr today

    Le scoop du mois
    Badzine est le premier media à vous informer de la retraite internationale de Mia Audina. La joueuse Néerlandaise d’origine Indonésienne a décidé d’arrêter sa carrière brusquement, pour se consacrer à son mari et à une offre de travail dans le monde des diamants. Elle a annoncé ce matin même à ses partenaires d’entraînement sa décision de quitter le badminton international, immédiatement.

    C’est une très grande championne qui raccroche donc les raquettes avec un palmarès dantesque, plusieurs médailles d’or européennes et un titre de vice championne olympique en 2004. C’est sans doute une bonne nouvelle pour les joueuses Chinoises qui voyaient sans doute en elle leur rivale principale.

    C’est aussi une décision importante pour les championnats du Monde à venir, puisqu’elle n’y participera pas. Pour le badminton, c’est une perte car Mia est sans doute l’une des joueuses les plus impressionnantes et talentueuses de sa génération.
    Bonne chance à elle dans sa nouvelle vie…

    The scoop of the Badzine month is the first media to inform you of the international retirement of Mia Audina. The player Dutchwoman of Indonésienne origin decided to stop her career abruptly, to devote itself to her husband and an offer of work in the world of diamonds. She announced this morning even with her partners of drive her decision to leave the international badminton, immediately. These is a very large champion which thus hangs up again the rackets with a dantesque prize list, several European gold medals and a title of vice Olympic champion in 2004. It is undoubtedly a good news for the Chinese players who undoubtedly saw in it them rival principal. It is also a decision important for the championships of the World to come, since it will not take part in it. For the badminton, it is a loss bus Mia is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and talented players of its generation. Good luck with it in its new life...

    A great shame she could not hang on a little longer for the world championships as Xie has not been in great form, nor Zhang Ning.

    No doubt her teamates have improved a lot since her arrival in holland, with a sterling run in the recent uber cup. We know of her battle with fitness over the recent years, hope she manages other ways to stay healthy.
