    Today I finally watched the Olympic QF between WX and Ratchanok. I was under the impression that this match featured a great comeback from WX. I guess it was, but after having watched it, I would more call it a massive choke from Ratchanok. She was really playing a marvellous match, a set and 16-9 up. WX hits a clear that Racthanok misjudges and lets it drop, but it lands just on the line. From that moment on the nerves got out of control for Ratchanok and her game collapsed like a house of cards.

    And I can't help but wonder how much better it could have been for both players, had Ratchanok actually held her nerve all the way and won. She could have challenged Saina for the bronze medal, and first and fore all, WX could have been spared her injury....

    Please be able to make comeback WX

    No reason why WX cannot make a comeback at some time, as long as she takes her time about it and doesnt try to push things along too quickly. She has already experienced a setback with her spinal injury long ago. That was many years ago and when her body was much younger and able to heal more quickly and completely. She will have to allow for more time now. It would be a BIG, BIG (oh, did I say, BIG?) mistake to mess with the healing and recuperation now, and especially at her age. It might turn out to be her last mistake.

    One thing these girls must work out along with their coaches and support staff, is a different way of playing. I'm truly flabbergasted how the CBA technical staff could not consider this in all seriousness for their badly injured stars.

    Look at how some of the top male stars from other countries have had to reinvent themselves over time. They make allowances for their injuries, and as a result not only prolong their careers but show that with discipline, brains and more attention to improving other skills, they can remain in the top echelon for a long time.

    When I see how the CBA coaching and support staff have over the past 3-4 years (if not more) handled their WS stars especially when the chips were down, I've noticed just too many goof-ups and errors, and a certain inflexible way of doing things and addressing problems. They are destroying good talent. Just because there appears to be and endless conveyor belt of WS champions in China does not give them the right to behave like production supervisors.

    Hi Vixter,
    could you tell me where you got the video of WX's match against Rat? It is not on the BWF site unfortunately. Thanks

    At least wang xin and wang lin can still afford to smile in this recent pic. WX even manage to hit the birdie with the shuttlecock tube

    I hope Wang Xin will recover soon and enjoy all her fans for some years more! As I cherish her delicate playing style, anticipating moves and incredible accuracy a lot. It's a pleasure to watch her play. She has to revover thoroughly, of course, however are there any news about a come back?

    Good news indeed! I hope she makes a complete recovery and doesn't make any hasty moves on her comeback trail. Her being an asset to the game and to CBA doesn't begin and end at just being a player, IMO.

    WX was not well enough to participate in the preliminary round of the National Games. Since she is not seeded, she will not play in the individual competition. However, she will make her official come back in the team competition at the National Games in September.

    In fact, she was not able to beat the fans in "holding the panda" competition. http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-06-...26636510.shtml

    This girl looks painfully thin and stressed! Aside from her knee injury, I hope she's well ...

    The news said that she has resumed regular training which is good news for her supporters. September is the time we shall all see her in action. With her coming back into the mix, WS will be more exciting to watch.

    Is Wang Xin really making a comeback at age 27, starting with the upcoming National Games of the PRC? I've my doubts though I'd love to see her back.

    well, Zhang Ning won her first of two Olympics Golds at the grand old age of 29.
    27 is still a spring chicken, plenty of time.

    But even at 29, other than XXF, no other Chinese WS could challenge ZN at that time. Now there are LXR and WYH at the top 2 spots. It will be tough for her.

    If it's true that the spot #1 or #2 is out of the grip there's still #3 or even #4 to eyeing for... imho, after all a spot within the top 10 can't be too bad esp. if there's some physical drawback caused by some injury

    Not that easy for a player at that age coming after a knee injury to come and catch the places of #1 #2 #3 #4.... If you go for it really, then you need to care for the knee not to get it happen again.. Wang Lin really worked hard to attain it.. But unfortunately, she could not do it. She can give her knee a bit of tension for some time but not a prolonged time.. Her injury was critical one. Natural joints are not equal to artificial joints. She need to be careful .. Nowadays, it will be difficult to beat any of the top 10 players that easily. Note to mention here is that ZhangNing did it with her "no problem" knee. She can try to do it step by step... Let's see what she decides in the future...
