Cheng Shiao-Chieh ( 鄭韶婕 ) - potential upcoming champion?
Heard a lot about her lately about her game with Xie Xinfang and Wang Chen.
Anyone got pics or comment about her play?
some say her backhand is amazing (comparable to Taufik one in woman context) and her only weakness is her height.

The way she played against XXF in WC05 certainly looks promising. But yet to see long term whether she could keep same performance.
But one for sure is that her hairdo looks very outstanding

She can definitely become a top player if she cuts down on her unforced errors.
The third game she played against XXF. She lost like 4 points straight?? due to unforced errors. But maybe you can attribute that to her young age. We'll definitely see more of her in the future.

But she lacks of height. She may not be able to last that long. Coz running all over the court will tire her.

also, i am not totally convince that height is that much of a factor. Gong Zhichao at her prime was a quite invincible player.
we will have to see if Cheng will be able to battle the Chinese lady. now that Cheng is in their radar, she may find that it will get more and more difficult to play against them.

IMHO, she should be a role model to all of us, especially current young players who aspire to be top-class one day, as to just how far playing simple badminton can take us. She didn't do anything fancy at all save from occasional cross court backhand net shots---that is, if you want to call them fancy at all---and she very nearly caused the upset of the tournament in WC'05.
If I have to pick on her game, I'd say her main weakness is her speed. XXF was in deep trouble until she got a handle of the draft in the arena and upped the tempo of the match.
I agree with everyone here that she's certainly got an excellent potential to be a future champion.
P.S.: I too think she should get her money back from her hairdresser.

Plus, GZC was from CHN, which has a huge pool of prospects. Cheng is from TW, which means the "internal selection" should be far less competitive.

She looks very old. I also think a haircut is definitely in order.

It depends on the play style and the physical conditions. Height might be a factor, might be not. How long did Susi Susanti play competitively before retiring in '99? I believe she began dominating WS since early '90's; therefore, my humble guess would be 10-12 years.
For Chinese female WS players, most of them are tall; but so far I only see Zhang Ning is still participating in the international competition at the age of 30. Others (around the same age as ZN) are just fading out. The domestic competition is strong and therefore not that many of them had a long career.
Well, let us see if she could be the one shaking the great wall of China.
