    A lot of players can learn from it, IMO.
    Agree. A very mature and honest analysis. And very human.

    If only (Asian) badminton players could express themselves better in media situations, they would garner more attention for themselves and the sport.

    WORLDS QF – Sindhu keeps beating China’s best

    http://www.badzine.net/news/worlds-q...9s-best/26558/

    EXCERPTS:

    Not only has Pusarla Venkata Sindhu (pictured) beaten China’s three top women’s singles shuttlers, but she is also now technically undefeated against two of them. Granted, yesterday’s win over Wang Yihan was the two players’ first encounter but today in Guangzhou’s Tianhe Gymnasium, she logged her second straight victory over Wang Shixian.

    “Sindhu has been playing well for a while now,” said Wang Shixian (pictured below). “It isn’t as if she is just suddenly beating Chinese players. My coaches and I did a lot of research on her as preparation.

    “She has long legs and arms and that makes her difficult to deal with but I just did not play with enough patience today. I was trailing throughout most of the match and I didn’t remain patient.”

    Sindhu was, predictably, beaming in her post-match interview and looked particularly flattered when one journalist described her as being ‘famous’ in China.
    “I’m very thankful to my parents,” said Sindhu. “My parents were both professional volleyball players and after choosing badminton, they have supported me a lot.

    “They used to take me to and from the Gopichand Academy. It was about 56km each way and it was really tough for four and a half years and then recently we have shifted nearby to the academy. So I’m really very thankful because they shifted the house for my sake and they both work and must now travel very far to go to work.

    “Playing with the senior players, I think it is a very good experience and I don’t think I’m playing with pressure. If I lose, I can just learn more and if I win, it will be very good for me. So I think I am without pressure and I can just play my game and just be free.”

    As i said earlier, coaches of shixian never sat idle the previous night and they have researched a lot and came with a strategy to the court. Did the execution went wrong??

    Excerpts? Is that an attempt at a joke? That is the entire bloody article, ripped off from a website that makes very little money, staffed by volunteers, two of whom are putting in unpaid, twelve-hour days in order to bring such news to the world for free!

    The interest in Badzine content is appreciated but please, PLEASE refrain from cutting and pasting into the forum text for which the copyright belongs to Badzine.

    The exasperating thing is that Badzine makes sure that cutting and pasting is completely unnecessary. A link is sufficient to give every BadmintonCentral member unimpeded access to view the text on the Badzine website and if it ever becomes inaccessible, there is always a BC member who can find a solution.

    Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.

    Ratchanok is a very experienced player? I don't think so.

    Sindhu could not handle RI's accurate smashes and all of Sindhu's smashes were easily retrieved by RI.

    Everyone know's RI weakness, stamina. If only Sindhu's defence was better and she rallied better without giving RI change to smash, it would have been a different outcome.

    My advice for Sindhu
    1) Play with the guys and try to retrieve all their smashes. I saw a video where LCW trains retrieving smashes with 3 guys smashing.
    2) Work on your smash accuracy to the lines.

    Good luck.

    She came to the circuit when she was 14 or 15 i think.
    2 years of more experience in badminton means a lot to players. That's why i said like that.

    No issues. Sindhu needs to work on her overall skillset and be well rounded else she wont get far.

    Her contant drops and rallies against WYH worked very well.
    So RI neutralised her by attacking non stop and keeping the rallies short.
    Now every chinese player is going to use this against her.

    So Sindhu go and brush up your defense big time else, you might not reach the SS QF onwards.

    For Saina, very easy solution, go and lose 5kgs.

    Sindhu has problem with ratchanok deceptive shots too, china players are less deceptive and reli on speed and power... Sindhu no doubt is quick and powerful, of she can improve her skills, she will be winning lot of tourney

    http://www.dnaindia.com/sport/187261...istoric-bronze

    EXCERPTS:

    Sindhu congratulated Ratchanok for reaching the finals.

    "I want to thank all the people who have supported me. Ratchanok played very well today and I would like to congratulate her on reaching the final. She was hitting good smashes througout the game," Sindhu said.

    "I made some errors. But what can I say. I will try my best the next time I get an opportunity. I think I have proved what I had said before leaving for the tournament."

    Yep. We all know that you have proved it. You fulfilled your one of your birthday wishes . i.e, One of them is a Semifinal finish in world championships. We all are behind you. Go ahead.. Fulfill the remaining two as well

    Right, but deceptive shots only works well when used sparingly. Next time Sindhu will be more ready for them. RI used to do a lot of cross court net tricks shots before, she does not do it any more because almost all players are ready for it. Check out her matches early last year

    Lack of experience cost Sindhu: Ramana

    http://www.thehindu.com/sport/other-...cle5010459.ece

    EXCERPTS:

    Her father P.V. Ramana said “Ratchanok Intanon played a brilliant game. She deserved to win. I think lack of experience proved costly for Sindhu who did not play her natural game at all.”

    “Being sportspersons ourselves, we (parents) know what it means to be a medal winner in a World championship. We were disappointed at her loss today, but not dejected. Especially if we look at the larger picture of Sindhu coming back home with the bronze medal,” said Ramana.

    Sindhu’s mother Vijaya said “somehow, Sindhu was sceptical of her chances against the Thai girl. I think she has to watch a lot of her videos and try to be a better player."

    S.M. Arif, former national coach said “To beat two big Chinese players on two consecutive days you need to have special talent. And I believe that Sindhu, being a diligent trainee and a willing learner, will go a long way in her career,".

    2013 Thailand Open winner K. Srikanth said: “we have been expecting this from one of the three — Saina, Sindhu and Kashyap. And, beating the Chinese in front of their home crowd is no mean achievement.”

    I think there's a good chance Sindhu will be ranked in the top 10 next week....
    Another of her stated targets met?

    No please. Chinese coaches already analysed sindhu's game before meeting her on court. But it seems their strategy did not work out. But the strategy with which Ratchanok played was to tackle sindhu at net and when she lifts, to attack down the line. Strategy really worked out. When sindhu faces chinese players, she is more confident and energetic. But when she faced Ratchanok, i missed her energy and confidence in her movements and shots. She is a quick learner. She will come back soon with a strategy to work out Ratchanok. Meanwhile In IBL, we can find many talents coming out . Many under-19 players are playing and they will gain experience and training to face top class players.
