    Default Strengths and weaknesses

    I was browsing Wikipedia when I came accross some descriptions of the style and ability of the players.


    Lin Dan
    Strengths --- Lin Dan is a left handed player whose most defining characteristic is his ability to attack with fast smashes at steep angles. He combines quick movements around the court with the ability to maintain long aggressive rallies to win the majority of his matches. His well built physique helps him to produce powerful straight and cross court jump smashes and his fast penetrating footwork makes him one of the toughest active badminton players in the open circuit.
    Weaknesses --- He is known as a temperamental player, occasionally disrupting matches to protest line calls.

    Taufik Hidayat
    Strengths --- Hidayat's qualities are his backhand (he is arguably most famous for his backhand smash, which has been recorded at over 200 km/h), forehand drop shot (reverse slice in particular), forehand jump smash, net-play, smooth footwork and occasional deceptive shots (such as his fake smash and fake drive, both of which he plays as drop shots).
    Weaknesses --- He has weaknesses in is his propensity to make errors, his impatience with loud crowds and his penchant for returning a net shot with a net shot, even when the opponent is dangerously close to the net.

    Wong Mew Choo
    Strengths --- She is known for her exceptional endurance and stamina, the result of training alongside male shuttlers. Without any significant attacking arsenals, she initially built her game based on fitness and defence, with the ability to run a continuous, long rally; sending everything back to tactically superior opponents until a mistake or an attacking opportunity appears.
    Weaknesses --- Lacks attacking skills. Because of long rallies, such tactics have served her well, but put a lot of pressure on her knees and ankles.. She has been known to suffer from various long term injuries in her playing career.

    Peter Gade
    Strengths --- His playing style is known for fast attacks, smooth footwork, constant pressure, and deceptive shots.

    Xie Xingfang
    Not an especially elegant looking stylist, Xie's strengths have been her combination of reach, quickness, consistency, and court sense.

    I know this may have been discussed in each of the players' thread, but it would really be nice to see all of their styles and abilities in just one thread for better comparison. It would be cool if our baddy heroes have stats, pros and cons, and stuff like that, so much like the X-men trade cards or Magic (The Gathering) cards or Battle Tank, or Digimon, or whatever.

    There's no description of his style of play in Wikipedia.

    Would you care to start stating his strengths and weaknesses?

    You aim for being the best. No matter how the odds are, if your goals are set, you never quit. People admire for how hard you try, regardless of your skills. Although you do let the power of your opponent's crowd hinder your game on the court. You are not as mentally strong. You concentrate on retrieving the shuttle. You're a control player. But when you are at home territory , you're dominating! - Facebook's description on LCW.
    Quite obvious, no?

    Ah, this is my opinion then,

    Maria Kristin Yulianti
    Strengths --- She moves around the court fluidly. Almost lazily. But often surprising her opponent with all those retrieving efforts. A rally lover. Very constructive player. Her game depends on her ability to read her opponents playing style, once she get it, she will dictate the game. Gifted with so many 'amazing' shot just by moving her wrist.

    Weakness --- Her ability to make tons of errors really cost her so many matches. She needs to gain power shot too.

    Sony Dwi Kuncoro
    Strengths --- Another rally lover. Almost same with Maria, he does constructive games. Waiting patiently to do some killing shots. His techniques are above the average.

    Weakness --- He is really slow at the beginning of game. If the opponents can take the advantage of this situation and take more points asap, usually he will be confused. Lacks of winning attitude.

    Adrianti Firdasari

    Strengths --- Plays with attacking style.

    Weakness --- Lacks of endurance. Her defensive shot isn't good enough if facing another attackers.

    Liliyana Natsir
    Strengths --- As a mixed double player, she has very good defensive shots. She is not afraid of being attacked. In front of the net, she can be very dangerous with tight net shot and her crosscourt smash.

    Weakness --- Despite usually being top seeds, she just doesn’t have the ‘champion’ attitude. Often do some ‘amateur’ expression that can make her opponent gaining confidence to beat her.

    Vita Marissa
    Strenghts --- Her placement almost perfect. If she is in good mood, her shot is very difficult to read since she uses so much slice and wrist technique.

    Weakness --- Power is not her friend. Three same shots comeback to her if she is in backside position, she will give up doing smash and just lob it.

    Just some weaknesses... IMO:

    PG - doesn't smash hard enough, misses the lines when under pressure
    LCW - Too passive and not aggressive enough
    LD - sometimes gets lazy and drops pace
    TH - Too slow, smash is losing power too

    IMO, LCW's skills are impressive considering how he easily beats TH, almost every other play in the world, except PG in Korean open, and LD.

    Wow. This must be one of the X-files. Same title, but one is restricted only to All England 2004 players.

    Default ^^So, how often do they change or get updated??..^^

    ..do the players' weaknesses and strengths change from:
    - Tourneys to tourneys?
    - Year to year?
    - Partner to partner (if they're Doubles players)??
    - Event to event (if a player changes from playing Singles to Doubles and vice versa??)..
    Are the ones listed on wikipedia more or less the accumulation of all of those players' playing years/career??..
