    Wow. the Thread comes alive after 3 successive win by this fiery kitten
    BTW, I do believe there is also politics in CBA for keeping her at bay...
    Hopes WYH can prove all of them wrong.

    Of course it is not too savoury!

    Just to test the ground. Care to suggest a more appropriate one that gels with kitten?

    So it is

    Catherine Wang!



    And this name has the following description:

    The girl's name Catherine is pronounced KATH-rin, KATH-er-in. It is of Greek origin, and its meaning is "pure". Variant spelling of Katherine. This form of the name is also used in France. Catharine is the English-only form.

    Hey, what do you mean "not bad" . Boy my rep has taken a beating this week. robin7 doesn't think I'm nice anymore and god knows who have bitten their lips.

    Perhaps suetyan can present this suggestion to her.

    It is not a prevalent custom for the English to have Chinese names.
    Why then must the Chinese have English names?

    Isn't Wang Yihan good enough?

    Default The rise of giant-killer Wang

    The Sundary Times
    March 15, 2009

    All-England women's champion, 21, is tipped to be queen of Chinese badminton

    By Leonard Lim

    Eleven years ago, a scrawny Shanghai girl picked up her first racket and joined the city's badminton mini-circuit, her aggressive style and quick reflexes leaving a deep impression on her peers.

    It was the start of an ongoing journey that has seen Wang Yihan carve out many highlights.

    The latest came last Sunday when the unseeded shuttler upset defending champion Tine Rasmussen for the All-England crown.

    Those who have seen the 21-year-old play say it is only a matter of time before she scales the summit of the world rankings from her current No. 11 spot.

    Among them is Singapore's Xing Aiying, who featured at the All-England tournament in Birmingham and has known Wang since they were youngsters.

    Said Jiangsu native Xing: "We used to practise and play against each other in Shanghai tournaments when we were around 10.

    "Back then, Yihan was already very good. She was taller than everyone else, and her height and speed were big advantages."

    Another one who has been tracking the 1.78m-tall Wang's progress is Yu Yilei, the deputy sports editor of the China Daily newspaper.

    He said: "She's very quick, athletic and aggressive, and likes to approach the net."

    Glance through Wang's short resume and a common thread emerges. She is not afraid when playing against star opponents, displaying composure, determination and a variety of skills.

    Even before the All-England tournament, she had already upset some of the sport's luminaries.

    At the age of 18, she defeated compatriot and then-world champion Xie Xingfang to claim her first title at the 2006 World Cup in Hunan.

    That was just a year after Wang was drafted into the national side. Other big scalps included world No. 2 Zhou Mi during her victory at last year's Japan Open.

    And, last week, in her second appearance at one of badminton's most prestigious competitions, Wang defeated three former All-England winners, including world No. 1 and top seed Rasmussen.

    The giant-killing started in the second round when Hong Kong's Zhou was sent packing.

    Beijing Olympics silver medalist and three-time All-England winner Xie was dispatched in the next round.

    Throughout the competition, Wang's big-match temperament, astute court sense and skilful shot-making belied her tender years. Her superior fitness showed in the final's deciding third game, as Rasmussen ran out of steam.

    One of China's more emotionally expressive players, Wang celebrated her 21-19, 21-23, 21-11 win joyously with Zhang Ning, her coach and current Olympic champion.

    "That's how I am. I also express myself on court as I am a rather joyful person," said Wang.

    Her rise comes at an opportune time as the Chinese women's team are facing a vacuum of sorts.

    Zhang retired after winning a second consecutive Olympic singles gold last year.

    Xie is already 28 and considered past her prime.

    Said Yu: "I can see no weak points in Wang's play. She's an important player in the new generation, a future world No. 1."

    It will perhaps make her more appealing to the West, a name that European fans can associate with much better. Good for badminton worldwide!
