    Default Zhang Ning

    I think it was her goal to play the OG 2008 for a Gold medal and then retire?
    At this pace, I don't think she'll even be able to win a medal next year. Age is perhaps catching up to ZN. Perhaps LYB should focus more on Zhu Lin and Lu Lan.

    Any opinions on this?

    If Zhu Lin, Lu Lan, even Xie Xingfang, can maintain top performance, why not? But as evidenced in the just concluded WC, Xingfang lost badly and is probably not yet ready to be "team leader" of the WS squad. Surprising as she is now 27.

    ZN may have lost to Wang Chen, but at least she did make the semis. About the only tournament I remember that she didn't do well was the Asian Games.

    She won't be able to win a medal ? Have you seen her current form ? she's able to beat everybody in the world. She's been number one in world ranking since several months, She has been more consistent than anyone else in her team .. Of course Zhang Ning can win a medal !

    i think if she prepare well and time her peak form on a particular tournament, she would be hard to beat by all current WS players.

    According to Mr LeeYB, Zhang Ning, together with XXF will represent CHN in OG08.

    Then I think China might lose the gold for WS as Tine Rasmussen is unbeatable til now...
    Zhang Ning will not be strong as prior years anymore..
    hopefully Xie Xingfang will be on her top form

    The chance for other countries to win is quite big..must consider many dark horses: Jun Jae-youn, Hwang Hye-youn, Yip Pui Yin, Wang Chen, Pi Hongyan, Wong Mew Choo, etc...

    So far Zhang Ning's performance is not really good.lost to these dark horses.
    LYB taking a high risk..

    OG is still 4.5 months away, peaking now means nothing. Actually, peaking now, only make yourself to be the target, and let the opponents spend extra effort to "study" you.

    ZN's problem is the age and injury. With all the SS going on, she never recover from her injury and fatigue. However, after the OG qualification and UC, there's not much events going on. With the extra rest, ZN can be deadly again, with her experience.

    Also, the problem is, if LYB does not select ZN, who he going to use? Lu Lan and Zhu Lin are not obvious better choices. XXF is far from a reliable leader. Therefore, ZN's presence can be useful, or at least, helping to clean up the road for her teammates. Sure, ZN can be beatn by 1 of the "dark horse", but mostly, ZN won't go down, until she kicked out most of the "horses" 1st.
