    Thanks Loh for sharing the article, it is an good article I don't know Xing Aiying and Yihan practised together when they were kids. If I'm not mistaken, Xing is younger than Yihan?? I love this one: "She's an important player in the new generation, a future world No. 1."

    Why then must the Chinese have English names?

    Isn't Wang Yihan good enough?

    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.
    How about Kitty Wang?? I think there is an english nickname called Kitty right??

    Well this is what I found out on the name 'Kitty':

    The girl's name Kitty \k(it)-ty\ is pronounced KIH-tee. Pet name for Katherine (Greek) "pure". Also used as an independent name since before the 16th century. [I]In the 17th century, it was used as a slang term for a woman of dubious morals[/I]

    As you can see, Catherine seems to be the proper form for Kitty but Kitty also has a dubious past as a woman of ...

    So which do you prefer, Cathering or Kitty?

    I thought Xiao Mao is her nickname but Catherine is a proper name.

    Why don't you sound it out to Miss Wang and see whether she likes the idea? She will be the first CHN player to adopt a Christian name in the badminton circuit, not bad huh! She can bridge the West and the East and she will make her European friends happy as well, I think.

    Yes, maybe, but they did not use it openly as in the draws. Maybe the BWF insists on having names shown in their IDs?
