But these players have demonstrated that they are the cream of the crop of WS players worldwide, at the moment. They are still young, fit and motivated. Who is to say they cannot be around in 4 or even 6 years time?
WSX has been generally very fit, injury-free and mentally one of the strongest girls around. I for one, will still believe she has all the attributes to shrug off this temporary glitch and come back stronger. IF the CBA make the effort to make the necessary adjustments to her game....

LXR should be selected, since she is ranked higher than WSX
Most BCers already know what I think; regarding National Associations players and independent players going on their own, without their National Associations.
No matter what ranking a player is, if he/she is a player from a National Association set-up, it is up to the National Association to make the selection.
In this case I agree with CBA; LXR should be selected, since she is ranked higher than WSX.
But on the other hand; Wasn't WSX sent to fewer tournaments just before the 2012 Olympics Qualification period, thus allowing LXR to overtake her ranking?
This is the issue, and this is what I have witnessed.
BCers' comments/replies are appreciated.

WSX lost to Lu Lan in R16
07-17-2012, 01:42 PM #536
No the lost to Lu Lan was totally unexpected because apparently WSX was leading throughout the game and suddenly surprised to play the rubber set by Lu Lan. Halfway through, she felt tired and then she decided to give up.
Zhang Ning watching from the stand was like WTF is this girl up to. She confronted WSX after the defeat and she honestly told her that she gave up because she was tired.
Zhang Ning was really pissed at that time i remembered and later WSX cried. That was still alright, actually until the end of the Sudirman Cup, from there on people internally started to question whether WSX can actually maintain her form against foreign opponents. Doubt begins and LXR slowly climbed her way to the top four.

So that was the start of her downfall.

She does not seem to learn from her mistakes and tend to repeat the same thing even though it doesnt work. Naive and stubborn i think.
The concern began and it turned out to be true when she was outclassed by Cheng Shao Chieh (an unexpected finalist) in London. She was upset by the defeat but the worst was she did not take anything from the defeat at all instead she promised that she would try to find a better way to beat her.
The remaining months of the 2011 season were the worst I have seen from WSX, she was stagnant and no improvement at all in her game.
WYH on the other hand is no better than WSX but she has better position because of her gifted height and she could create angles out of nowhere. WSX just played the same game over and over again.
Having said that, she still could maintain a good performance (from the result perspective) by reaching the semifinal at least in almost every tournament.
The momentous point was her shocking first round defeat (her only early exit blow so far i could remember) from Ratchanok, which made everyone started to completely challenge their belief and confidence in WSX.
Curiously, in the same tournament LXR was on the rise and lost the tie to WX in the semifinal. WSX was completely broken at that time and promised again to find a solution before it's too late. However, her nightmare came true.
Still, with her capability I believe she could deliver a medal (not gold i am sure) compared to WX because I never put my money on inconsistent players.

repentedboy, thanks for your input. You must have felt bad watching her badminton career going downhill.

If the Koreans do rise to the occasion and win the gold instead of Nehwal/Baun, then LYB and the rest of the staff will be hugely blamed for their shortsightedness.
WSX is the solution to defeat the Koreans and Japanese players. Bear in mind, WX/WYH/LXR have to deal with these batch of players first before the QF (maybe not SJH). I can say on the spot WX and WYH are extremely vulnerable to these Koreas/Japanese.

What must she been thinking/pondering after seeing those draws announced?
Could she stand a better chance than WX as a second seed?

I am sorry that you feels this way. In my opinion LXR deserve gold medal as much as WYH. She will be world number 1 soon and will stay there for a while. The only thing to stop her is unexpected injury like what happened to WX and WL. She is all around player like WYH and has everything to match WYH (if not more) apart from her younger age and lack of experience which she will only get better with time. There is no obvious weakness which can be taken advantage by her opponents and I personally believe she can go up one or two more notches with more training. Her mental strength and badminton IQ are excellent. Her smashes are outstanding. To beat WYH without assistance from her coach just told us that she can adjust the game strategy by herself. To pick up 4 straight points from 17 to 21 in the 3rd games told us that she got the ability to play big points and finish the game well.
She just has to polish her skills and cut down the unforced errors. If she didn't pick up injury, She will dominate WS at least 6 years whether we like her or not. WSX will be back to top 3 with more training with her smash. WX 's prospect is a worry with her knee injury. I wish her all the best.
