I dont really believe Wang Xin will screw up in the early round in contradiction to what i have been throwing about her form lately. After seeing her play in the Uber Cup, she reminded me of the form she together with Wang Shixian displayed in the Asian Games. It's about fighting hard and no joking around that led them to become eventual medallist.
I havent seen Wang Yihan performed like them yet but with her passing the ultimate test to become the Jedi Master overcoming the seduction of her inner demons and finally buried once and for all. We will see Wang Yihan fighting to the end barring any injuries.
Firstly, China shouldn't complain about group format. It prevents them from getting exit early to be honest. Wang Xin has the blessing of disguise to become the 2nd seed player and usually the first two seeds will have a very excellent draw. Unfortunately for Li Xuerui, she will probably be used to give walkover to her teammates should they too succeed in the early rounds, making my first All England jinx comes true.

today is the day that LYB will submit the names of three WS players for the Olympics!
but that's just a formality. the real decision won't be made until July.

I assume he will submit the three Wangs first then changed at the very last minute.

but how come BWF website says this:
"All Member Associations have until 31 May to decide on their representatives for the 2012 London Olympic Games in accordance to the quota(s) decided by the BWF to balance having the best players and global diversity at the Games."
And at the very last page of the "OLYMPIC QUALIFYING REGULATIONS FOR LONDON 2012", it says 31 May 2012 is the "Deadline for NOC’s to confirm to BWF their selection of qualified players/pairs".

Wang Yihan and Wang Xin have gone through individual trial and tribulation
It's hard for me to choose because i want both to win after reading their biography. Both have their own hardships and it takes more than just guts to resurrect their career.
Compared to these two, Wang Shixian's current plight is completely minor. In fact she should be happy that she has won a lot of major titles that rival Wang Yihan at the age of 22.
Wang Xin hasn't won anything major in singles to date.

Me too,at first 2-3 years ago,when Wang Yihan was WR1,she somehow never endeared herself to me,not because she seemed proud and aloof or something. I preferred Wang Xin ,followed by Wang Shixian , then back to Wang Xin again. It was only after her UC2010 debacle, when I saw how she suffered in silence,humbly bided her time and learned from her defeats,and then transformed into a mature,steady and tough fighter that I was won over, now even more so.
Wang Xin did win a few major singles titles,the Singapore Open, French Open,Denmark Open and HongKong Open all in 2011,you can say not as impressive as WYH. For her comeback after a severe injury and able to produce such beautiful attacking badminton is what bowled me over completely. I'm not one to go purely by seniority but at age 26, I would wish her to be the first among equals to win OG gold as time isn't on her side for a China player, she may not have another go at it four years later,unlikely.
The problem is I felt WYH also deserves it after what she's gone through on top of her indomitable spirit, I'm kind of torn between the two,in a dilemma. We'll see how it goes when the time comes.

Even Lin Dan admitted his rivals in the Olympics are not only LCW, PG,and other non-CHN players but also his compatriots - why would his teammates want to let him win gold twice,I think LYB too,whose job is to ensure China wins not any particular player,wouldn't dare to favour him.
06-01-2012, 03:14 AM #1968
It's one thing to let other compatriots get the wins, it's a whole lot different to carve a sacred place for a legend (and for the legend to grow even larger) so that it'll be even much harder to duplicate if not already insurmountable.

yup, once 2 chinese meet in the final, their destiny is in their own hands.
but it will be different story if they meet in the SF.

That is why CHN players know the real obsatcle to them winning is from their teammates and even if he/she wins, the score is very close and could go either way. WX would be pitted opposite half of WYH. If WX gets into the final, WYH has her number. If LXR is CHN #3 and in WYH half, LXR has WYH number. And WX has better H2H against LXR. So the draw is very important, and again assuming no upset from the rest of the world like JS, SN, etc.

I agree that LYB will not give "instructions" if two CHN players are pitted against one another in the OLY final.
But looking back at the WS final of OLY 2008, ie ZN vs XXF, would u (if u were XXF) have some hesitation of winning against ZN? I say so for the following reasons:
(1) ZN is more senior than XXF. Seniority means quite a bit in China.
(2) XXF probably knew LYB was thinking of recruiting ZN as a coach in 2008.
(3) LD (ie, her boyfriend and future husband) still has to face ZN everyday after OLY2008 for several years.
