    Any reason why she hasn't enrolled in Chulalongkorn University? They have some other Thai national players enrolled there.

    Chulalongkorn University focus primary on academics and won't allow her too much time for badminton. (Pontip has to skip many SS tournaments to go for required internship by her school)

    I saw Thonburi comes quite low on the rankings but they've had a great capture and she would be a high profile alumni.

    Chulalongkorn university have some excellent badminton players - some of them must have been semi-pro before.

    If it is assumed 6 hours of training per day, then 21,600hours.
    That's what's needed to be the top of the world. I am a bit behind that figure
    My dreams are up in smoke.
    I spend 8 hours on badminton per week.
    21,600/8 =2,700 weeks.
    It will take me 52 years to be a World Champion!!

    Indian journalist praised her for both performance and characters and named her as "The Badminton's Wind of Change"

    They said...

    "...That Ratchanok Inthanon, the new world champion, is nothing like the interchangeable Chinese champions of the last few years is immediately evident. What badminton needs to appreciate more urgently is just how precociously talented the 18-year-old who became the youngest-ever world champion, is. This could be shuttle's Steffi Graf moment where the whole world wows. Such is the Thai's quiet magnetism...."

    and I agreed, Ratchanok Intanon, You are truly wonderful...

    ...and her story is so inspiring admiration...It is no doubt that she had been awarded with the Sport-Inspiring Young People Trophy from The International Olympics Committee (IOC).

    All eyes will be on newly crowned world women’s singles champion Ratchanok Intanon at the China Masters badminton championships to be held in Changzhou, China from 10-15 September.

    The Thai lass is set for a repeat clash against China’s Li Xuerui at the championships. Ratchanok, who defeated Xuerui 22-20, 18-21, 21-14 for the world title in Guangzhou earlier this month, has been seeded second behind Xuerui for the China Masters.


    However, it is not going to be easy for Ratchanok, who has been drawn to meet China’s Jiang Yanjiao in the opening match. She is drawn to meet Korean eighth seed Bae Yeon Ju in the quarter-finals and a likely meeting against third seed Wang Yihan in the semi-finals.

    Anyone notice the very interesting development of Steen Pederson perspective toward Ratchanok as the WC final matched go on.

    At the beginning of the 1st game : “ …she is just a playful player…” (min 11.45)
    At the end of 1st game : “…not the same player on court anymore…and play excellent…”(min 31.30)
    At the middle of 3rd game : “…she is the most technical skillful player we ever had……I choose Ratchanok as the best technical player….”(min 55.30)
    At the very end of 3rd game : Fastastic!!!

    Wow. This will be even tougher than WC, if she can beat the top 2 Chinese WS players to win the title.

    RAT

    CHN losing WC at home to RAT, CHN will study her just as CHN studied LCW. Everytime CHN players face off against LCW, they gave LCW a tough run because CHN did her homework. Thai has done a great job finding RAT, but as promising as Thai youngsters are, still Thai has only 1 truly world class WS player. I am not being negative but I be surprised if RAT can make it to the final, let alone beat out 2 CHN WS in CHN this time.
