Fast and flexible enough to rarely take back hand shots, her speed to the around the head corner is very good. Added to all of this, her racket skills and overhead stroke is incredibly relaxed and deceptive and her touch at the net is world class already.
    She reads the game beautifully and can anticipate shots few others can. Her creativity and mind for the game is what stands out for me(she pretty much uses a double action for every single none overhead stroke).
    It's not even the fact that she makes errors while doing something you don't expect, but it's the fact that she a) thinks of doing it and b) attempts it in a game situation. Other players can only dream of the shots she can pull off.

    The only comparison i can make is Mia Audina because they are both the most talented WS players i've ever seen. Style wise, there are some but not many similarities. Actually funny enough, the first people i thought of when watching Ratchanok play was Taufik and Hafiz Hashim.
    If at the end of her career, you told me she had won multiple Olympics, WC's and AE i would not be surprised in the least
    Strange. Without any discussing and prior to reading any comments, I had come to the conclusion that Mia Audina was the most talented WS player ever. She seems to be floating around on the court.

    if that's the criteria. i think Susi Susanti should take that honor. she is like a ballet dancer on the badminton court. her movement is so fast, so light. and yet so lethal.

    she makes Mia looks like a freight train.

    Sigh. It has been so many years already, and I can't recall any of Susi's matches anymore. All I remember is that she was totally dominant for a period of time.

    Yes, it was just after the Li Lingwei/Han Aiping era. Part of the reason China dipped during that period was that they began to use tall players with power, expecting that power alone could win matches. So Tang Jiuhong/Huang Hua/Ye Zhaoying didn't do too well when they can't last against Susi Susanti/Bang Soo Hyun, who had superior fitness.

    But the speed of the modern game is now such that floating on court is no longer fast enough. You need explosive movement, dives, sudden injection of pace and direction to take charge. Perfrectly shown by Ratchanok in her demolition of Sindhu - it's like playing with someone two classes down.

    When I look at videos of long ago matches, even the men's doubles felt really slow ........

    So she is using one the lightest rackets. But how can she generate much power in her smashes? She must have very strong wrist.
