    Hm..Lu Lan is the most stable player among 4 of them..3 times runner up this year are not easy...It will be crazy if LYB drops Lu Lan....

    I know she had produced consistent results, but to me she appears to crack under pressure.. She is still lacking in the killing instinct.. Compared to Zhu Lin I think she is not a strong attacker and her play is not very consistent.. Anyway whatever it is.. LYB is the ultimate decider

    Zhang ning was picked by LYb.I doubt if u would want to doubt the credibility of Lyb.
    we are unsure of what is gonna happen.Maybe just another 'strategy' from lyb.
    But,im excited enough to wait for that suprise.
    Ur statement made it look so easy and simple.

    One more thing,zhang ning proved herself after so many years.Of course she doesnt want to leave us with a dissapointing appearence in olympic.In HER own Motherland.

    Lu Lan to me is not going to be the gold medalist. her role as part of the team is to eliminate as many non-China competitor as possible. this way her consistency will payoff and solidifies her inclusion in the Olympics lineup.

    for me, ZN serves as the eliminator for her team mates and she will be the source of encouragement and motivation for her team mates. XXF, LL and ZL are good, but lack of charisma of which ZN possesses.

    I prefer ZN to retire gracefully before OG, but seems that the team can't let her go. Well, this time, I will give my full support to WMC & Tine...but, if ZN is in the final against non of WMC & Tine, for sure, I will support ZN... afterall, she is the GREAT ZN...

    reports from China says that the ultimate list has not been submitted and decided, and even LYB himself says the final selection is going out to BWF on the 23rd, which is today China time. the team will have an unveiling event on the 25th.

    so there is still hope for Zhu Lin, but even herself thinks that her chances is quite slim, in her blog, she signature has recently been changed to:

    "nothing is important anymore."

    Default Zhang Ning's last hurrah..

    ..to me, personally, although ZN is not the favorite going in to win the WS Gold, the way i see ZN's last Olympic appearance is reminiscent to that of Gong Ruina's last OG appearance in 2004.
    Yes, there could be a bit of "politicking" in the decision (between her and ZL), but more so, her performance in the qualifying tourneys solidified her position. And i think, if ZN is healthy enough and ready to go, she deserves to go and defend her WS title.

    Not as strong attacker as Zhu Lin???!! You serious? I'd say Lu Lan has some phenomenal attacking shots from the matches I've seen her play since the Korean Open where she lost to Zhou Mi (I think) and also her netplay is very consistent and good.
    Zhu Lin as can be seen in her match against Maria in IO08... Lacks the killer hits to finish Maria on many favourable occasions. I believe in that match Maria lost the match due to her mistakes and also her lack of fitness, if ZL lost the first set of that match I think she wouldn't have won the secnd with the way she was playing. LL or XXF certainly wouldn't have let it go into 3rd set when they hold advantage unlike ZL.
    Her mentality is always stable like the way she totally destroyed WMC after lagging behind 16-9 or something. She is a player that can't be written off IMO.

    Thats good news for competitive badminton, can't let the WS titles always be dominated by Non-South-East Asian countries like China, South Korea and Chinese Hong Kong. Or by ex-China players from Netherlands, Germany.
    Gotta have more pure-breds like Tine Rasmussen and WMC.
