A new star is emerging on the Chinese Womens doubles team. Bao Yixin is still a young girl, but has a very impressive resume. And in the past 2 months, she has made the world sit up and take notice of her skills, courage, level head and world-class performances. Yixin plays doubles mostly, both WD and XD. In WD, she is currently (since September 2011) paired up with Zhong Qianxin. This is a brand-new pairing but they struck gold immediately, beating many seeded players on the way to claiming the Japan Open SS 2011 WD crown. Earlier, Yixin was paired with Shu Cheng, with whom she won the Canada Open this year. In mixed doubles, Yixin as earlier paired with Zihan Qiu, and they enjoyed moderate success, often losing to other team-mates in the latter stages of tournaments. Yixin is now paired with He Hanbin, with whom she has reached the finals of the Indonesian Open GPG 2011. The finals will be played later today, in fact!
