    Yeah, also noticed she's crying at victory ceremony...
    She has won 4 titles in this year so far, from GP Gold to BWF event, much better than downturn period last year

    That's I want looking forward too after 3 Chinese WS have contrast condition/struggling performance after they won WC title => Zhu Lin, Lu Lan, Wang Lin in 2007, 2009, 2010 respectively.

    .
    I wonder if Wang Yihan would change the trend (different CHN girl winning once each year), and win our next (2013) World Championships title again.

    Or, will it be Wang Shixian or Wang Xin next time?

    Yihan lands first world title as China continue their dominance



    CHINAs Wang Yihan kept the proud tradition of her country in the womens singles when she became the world champion for the first time at Wembley Arena yesterday.

    Yihan ended the gallant run of Taiwanese Cheng Shao-chieh with a convincing 21-15, 21-10 win in the final.

    With her win, China have won the womens singles title at every edition since the 2001 World Championships in Seville.

    The 23-year-old Yihan was estatic over her win and vowed to maintain her form until the next Olympic Games.

    I went in without any pressure and enjoyed the game. It made it easier for me to beat my opponent today, said Yihan.

    I did not let my country down this time and I am very pleased with what I have achieved. It will give me a lot of confidence, added Yihan, who lost to Eriko Hirose of Japan at last years world meet.

    It was indeed a great day for China. They made an amazing clean sweep of all the titles for the third time in the series.

    They also pulled off the same feat last year in Paris and at the 1987 series in Beijing. They won the mens singles and mens doubles titles through Lin Dan and Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng for the fourth time.

    In an all-China affair, Wang Xiaoli-Yu Yang defeated Tian Qing-Zhao Yunlei 22-20, 21-11 and in the mixed doubles, Zhang Nan-Zhao Yunlei ended the fairy-tale run of Chris Adcock-Imogen Bankier from England and Scotland respectively with a 21-15, 21-7 win.

    It's because suetyan is finding less time to post at BadmintonCentral, now that she has started working.

    Wang Yihan is back to World #1 per 18 August 2011 WR updated following her successful last week.
    The total point difference between her and #2 Wang Shixian isn't really wide, Yihan => 87,740 / Shixian => 84,156.50.

    .
    WYH is doing better than WSX.

    Why? WYH scored her points from 12 tournaments, while WSX scored them from 13.

    seeing her cool demeanour, her fighting spirit and her determination; i think we are seeing a legend in front of our eyes. i think we are all fans of a girl who is destined for greatness. i think she will be a legend in badminton. she has the grace, the game, and the temperament too.

    The big question now is whether WYH can break the WS WC curse that bedeviled last three champions ZL, LL, and WL.

    All the best to WYH!

    The difference between ZL/LL and ZN/XXF/WYH is that ZL/LL were never considered the top Chinese WS players in the world. They just caught everyone by surprise just like Gunawon and Howard Bach in 2005. WL injured herself, just bad luck. WYH has a all-rounded attack game that can dominate WS a long time.

    While ZL was a notch or two below XXF and ZN, she was the most skilled player among the rest. She just lacked some drive.

    LL was the most complete player (WL may have captured that title when she won her WC) among the little flowers.

    WYH's footwork and net play were not up to par. Both, especially the footwork, were much improved at WC. Maybe WYH pre-jinxed herself with the injury before AE such that she will escape the curse this time.

    Wang Yihan is seeded No 1 at China Masters and Japan SS (of course she is ). And I read from other thread that Yihan will participate the Indonesia GPG Gold. So, there will be 3 tournaments in a row? What do you think?
