    many of news reports just left it off. i don't know the reasons, maybe because it is well known that she is singles player and when she lifted the world title, people can understand that it will be women singles title not doubles categories.

    I'm not buying that it was intentional. No one was stupid enough to call Ji Xinpeng the youngest gold medallist in Olympic badminton history in 2000 just because he had that distinction for his discipline. People report this one wrong because they think she was the youngest, period. In other words, they don't know, they don't check, and they repeat the claim because several sources that should have been reliable got it wrong in the first 24 hours. The BWF - as quoted earlier in this thread - even went so far as to add in 'of either gender', so they, at least, were clearly not trying to limit their claim to women's singles and that is understandable, as it is clearly a more impressive claim since she was younger than any past MS champion, too.

    You can keep laughing as much as you like. You don't know how her family supporting her.
    Apart from this, you may not know what the heck happens after you start having a house, it is listless of activities like how about furnishing, decoration, gardening and so on. It is tireless and can be very distracted. Keeping it as a dream and pushing it away till a proper time is the best strategy in my opinion.

That is why that RI won WC13 in CHN is remarkable, equal to what WMC did when she won CO07 but rated higher since this is WC over CO. But nevertheless, beating the CHN girls in CHN was a huge upset.
    i think carolina marin is not too bad too....

    Good to see May/RI back in the fray. It was a good first tournament for her after the world
    championship and reaching the semis at recent Denmark open shows her new level of consistency
    despite lacking match fitness.

    The Thais are doing a China and avoiding RI and PB meeting in the WS final.
    My view is PB who is in form will win the French open WS title.

    Hope PB do well in the French Open. Welcome Thailand to the club with China is the only member. Thailand Prime Minister was in China recently and a deal had been signed trading rice and bullet train. So it is no surprised that Thais and Chinese are joining forces in badminton. Please don' forget to defend China in this Forum especially in the issue of walkover.

    The word is that May is nursing a shoulder injury and that's she's only about 80-90% healthy right now. The main reason she's playing with the injury is to get enough points to qualify for the Superseries Finals.

    Well, she's at the end of the most serious chase group. She's now in 12th spot and needs to earn just over 5000 more ranking points in Shanghai and Hong Kong than Porntip if she wants to qualify, more if Porntip wins today. Ahead of her in the chase, though, are Juliane Schenk, Wang Yihan, and Li Xuerui.

    Anyways RI already bagged the big one this year, let her mate PB take FO and
    enter SSF - PB needs her first SS win.
    Next year RI will have so many things to go for and if she, PB and BO play their
    cards right and impose themselves the right way, China and ROW WS will be
    having their hands full overcoming the Thai tsunami.
