    Indeed, Wang Xin's beautiful,fluid,somewhat mannish attacking style of play is such a delight to watch, mesmerizing and captivating. On court she looks, in the way she plays badminton, drop-dead gorgeous, if I may use such a description.

    What a shame that two such excellent WS players, Wang Xin and Wang Lin, had to end their distinguished careers due to injuries. That's life; reality is often cruel and harsh,very few are spared.

    Come to think of it, Wang Xin's badminton career lasted only a little more than three years. At age 17, she was incapacitated from playing badminton when she developed a bone protrusion at the coccyx which caused her lower back problem that would aggravate her condition if she carried on. Then after medical treatment and recuperation that prevented her from taking up competitive badminton for several years, she managed to get herself inducted into the CHN national team at a mature age of 24.

    Now at age 28 and one year after another unfortunate severe knee injury suffered at the 2012 London Olympics, she is retired; thus ending a short but brilliant yet tragic career,and in addition,dashing the hopes of many an ardent fan who were excited by her comeback attempt in the last couple of months.

    What next for Wang Xin? She gave no hints - it remains for us to simply wish her happiness and success in her future endeavours.

    From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Wang Xin, for the wonderful and memorable badminton you have given us. You shall be sorely missed and remembered for a long,long time.

    does Deng Xuan remind you of Wang Xin, playing style appearance and even the shriek.

    Nope, I don't think so, she doesn't attack like Wang Xin, not as aggressive and more like a stroke player. Some resemblance in looks, maybe. Still, it'll be great if she can transform into another Wang Xin over time; not impossible at 22 years of age, born 20 Jan 1992 in Guangzhou.

    thanks for the reply, I personally like Wang Xin's style, so hoping some other girl plays that way.
