    Default Mixed Doubles Taller Woman than Man

    I noticed that some of the top mixed doubles combinations have a taller woman than man. I think that's great for the badminton and displays healthy self esteem amongst the sportspeople we look up to.

    Donna Kellog/ Anthony Clark, UK. World Championships Silver.
    Nadiezda Kostiuczyk/ Robert Mateusiak, Poland. Dutch Open winners.
    Lee Hyo Jung/ Lee Yong Dae, Korea. Olympic Gold medalist.
    Kamilla Rytter Juhl/ Thomas Laybourn, Denmark. Super Series Masters winners.

    Are there any others you can think of?

    I thought the partnership is choosen purely on whether there's any chemistry in between 2 players, rather than any "imagine" issues...
