    Zhang Ning is slightly shorter than Yihan. Yihan is having the same height as Xie Xingfang. Hmm... But, so far there is none in the China MS team can take over LD's role. So, who can Yihan really rely on?

    The thing that worries me about WYH is that her recent play has just been, to be perfectly frank, quite bad. I was there at the Uber Cup final when she lost to Bae Seung Hee, and her playing was just far below the standard she had displayed when she was on her dominant streak last year. If she's not injured or undergoing any drama in her personal life, then I guess her main problem must be a psychological one.

    I don't know how Zhang Ning is like as a coach, but I did notice her patting WYH on the back after her loss to Hirose, so hopefully she does serve as a source of comfort to her charges when needed. I get so worried about these young athletes sometimes...that if they're down and out, they'd have no one to turn to.
    yup, quite sad for her. For those could not understand chinese, you can listen from her sound, she was sobbing.

    ..really?????..Yihan is as tall as XXF????.....i don't believe it...Last time i checked, i stood next to both XXF and ZN (during the 2005 WC) and i recall XXF is as tall as me and ZN is a bit shorter (yes, ZN and XXF didn't wear any high heels shoes)..
    Do you have Wang Yihan's height data?..

    ..like they say 'a picture can tell 1,000,000 words' (or something like that)..don't have to hear her voice or sobbing, just take a look at her facial expression and tears running down her cheeks and we can feel her emotion..

    She has the height but is clearly heftier than XXF and ZN, who are lightweights in comparison. Her movements become more laboured as a match goes on and opponents tend to move her around more to take advantage of this. Somehow, her defence seems poor too.

    ..she was undefeated vs. Eriko prior to last night..Are you suggesting Yihan gained weight between her last win vs. Eriko and last night??..i don't really subscribe to her height being a downside factor but yes, her footwork which makes it seem laborious for her to move around..
    suetyan, do you think Yihan is heftier than either or both ZN and XXF??..

    Yihan gained weight? I don't think so, she is quite thin. Hmm.. I think she is heftier than XXF but not ZN. ZN<WYH<XXF.

    I think you'll have to ask her but be prepared to get slapped across the face

    Don't you think during her slide over the last few months that she has shown a similar pattern of laboured movement as a match progressed. No wonder she always has that pained look on her face. For sure her footwork needs work but it seems OK at the beginning when her legs are still strong. My conclusion is that she could be playing at a slightly lighter weight to afford her a bit more mobility, especially in game 3's.

    - suetyan has given the confirmation.
    - IMO, her current weight is fine. She can lose a bit more weight, or be playing with a slightly lighter weight, but i don't think it'll be enough to curtail or bring her out of her current funk...
    - I think WYH has been keeping her weight consistent the same from last yr to currently..
    - I do think her early success could be partly attributed to her being new/unknown in the world circuit..but now, other players are starting to figure her style of play..Imagine losing to Juliane Schenk (in straight games) in last yr's WC (okay, i understand pressure could be there as it was WYH's first appearance in a WC), then losing to BSH (also in straight games) in this yr's UC Final (okay, i understand pressure could reappear as it's her first time playing as 1st WS in an UC Final)..

    this question is very difficult to tell, even I myself can't tell my weight as it changes from day to day. Previously, it was reported she is around 60kg.

    This is what I see with my own eyes. She looked more streamline when when was winning titles. I remember I used to call her chicken arms .

    I think she has gained muscle hence look a little more filled out. It's different from person to person. Some can carry the extra weight but others are affected by it (even if it's a matter of 3-4 lbs).

    Each person has their own ideal fighting weight and I don't think WYH is currently at hers.

    Anyway, this is my speculative theory which may or may not contain any truth to explain her poor form

    Just believe on herself that she can! I guess Yihan WR as #1 will be dethroned by Wang Xin soon...

    She is a tad meatier than when she was at the AE in March. Probably should wear higher potency Phiten to help her carry through.

    Myself at 1.81 m standing next to her, I can say she is definitely over 1.78 m tall but no more than 1.79 m (maybe .5 cm less).
