    The world needs a player like her who can mix it up and upp the ante. How many female players have we seen in the history of the sport that can play as gutsy and aggressive like a matador? Itz a pity that her on court antics have limited her legendary status. She is actually a legend imo after winning the majors especially in relatively badminton shy Spain.

    Marin is reported to be not anxious to play at the Basel WC out of concerns for her health and is considering making a comeback in September as reported here http://sports.sina.com.cn/others/badmin/2019-07-24/doc-ihytcitm4226280.shtml

    She said her goal is the Tokyo Olympics, that's why she is thinking of not taking any risk playing the world championships, if she takes part she will go all out, if not, she will use the September world tour series to make a comeback.

    (Let's wait and see if she'll play at the Basel WC).

    9 months after surgery is about right. She definitely can’t play in world championships. It would risk another rupture.

    But then it takes time to get back into the match mind, adjusting to conditions, building your physique to cope with demands of competition.

    The Olympics are 3months too soon.
