    Who you want to see win and who you think will win are 2 different things. WX is my favorite WS player but I voted for WSX as I think she will win WC11. I like LCW and as a malaysian, I hope he will win and but I voted for LD as I think he will win. It is a mater of betting with your heart or your brain, even though the brain got screwed up this time and many times before too, and picked the wrong WS winner. That is why I am still working and not quit to be a bookie...not yet

    I agree: "Who you want to see win and who you think will win are 2 different things".

    As for me, I usually base my replies as per the title of the thread. I voted for WYH (for this tournament), simply because I guessed that she could win (based on her current form).

    It's not because that I do not like Wang Xin; for Wang Xin, she will get her chance when her form improves for future tournaments.

    Surprised, perhaps Wang YH knows Wang Xin's game so well that she (WYH) was able to prevent her(WX) from playing her usual attacking game; if that's true, it shows the analytical ability of Wang YH - she would make a good coach in future. Why couldn't Wang Xin out-analyze or counter her opponent's tactics, I wonder.

    Among the top Chinese women players at present, I may like Wang SX best, for her mental strength,steady nerves and self-confidence, but Wang Xin's style of attacking play - like the men's which few women player could emulate - never fails to impress me. If only Wang SX can acquire some of Wang Xin's attacking ability. Still, I believe, if Wang Xin can maintain her attack more consistently throughout her matches, she will be on her winning streak. She happens to be Morten Frost's favourite among the top four Chinese women players, at present.

    Very true. Wang Xin was not winning many titles and she looked like she was gone until Zhang Ning pulled her back to the National Squad and she had since developed into the so-called "foreigners beater", a fact which has been many times proven true when she would lose to other Chinese players like when she lost to Wang Yihan in the SF recently after beating Saina of India in the World Championship 2011 QF.

    I just watched the replay of the Wang Xin - Tine Baun QF match in Li Ning CHN Masters 2011. It's almost like watching two men's singles playing each other,both have fierce attacking shots and killer smashes. Though Tine seems to have a more powerful smash,she is less consistent,less accurate,weaker in defense,and more temperamental;otherwise,her tournament results should match Wang's. As for Wang Xin,I feel she deserves much better tournament results than what she is getting,often losing to her teammates. Hope to see her winning more major championships - she can do it,still only 25 yrs old;Zhang Ning was 32 when she retired after gaining her second gold medal in Beijing Olympics.

    Do what I do - copy and paste the Chinese characters and enter them into Wiktionary. Here are the results I got for Wang Xin:

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E9%91%AB

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E6%B1%AA

    Hope that helps.

    "Wang" is her surname normally doesn't has meaning, but for her case "Wang" can be sea or ocean.
    "Xin" is made up of 3 words, "gold". i.e. gold, gold and gold quite suited her career come to think of it.

    Thank you, mrinalini and alany ! The best translation I could come up with on the basis of your info, is:
    "Ocean of true wealth." or depending on your interpretation,
    "vast, unending source of goodness."
    Sometimes, the intrinsic meaning gets lost in translation. I'm sure there may be a more fitting interpretation than mine...
