    Wang Zhiyi seems to be rising steadily; personally,I'd like to see her developed into a more proactive player, esp when playing fast attacking opponents by mixing up her shots well with good repertoire and deception t keep them guessing and then going on the offensive by suddenly injecting pace. For that, she also needs to improve her physical strength and stamina, the more so to deal with remarkable retrievers.

    As for Li Shifeng, he is promising, if only he has at least 70-80% of Chen Long's physicality, I daresay he may get inside the top 10 in another year or so. I would say the same applies to Sun Feixiang. That's just my opinion.

    Heartiest congratulations to Wang Zhiyi for capturing her first back-to-back titles, albeit both Super100 events, and her fifth for the year and the sixth so far at the senior level. Certainly noteworthy for a 19-year-old just starting out in her international professional career.

    She is, without doubt, a very promising young talent. But it's still early days in the formative stage of her young professional career. I'm looking forward to see her make her mark one day in the higher tier events, Super500/750/1000, when she's eligible to compete in them, soon, probably by early next year, I believe.

    Way to go, Wang Zhiyi. Jiayou !

    Agree about WZY. She has a bright future and i look forward to her participation in Super 500.

    Zhou Meng on the other hand was completely inept against Riko Gunji yesterday. She plays (and looks) like a boy especially with her diving retrievals and jumping smashes. Alas, she was never a match to Riko Gunji who was fast, nimble and skillful. I think ZM should consider switching to doubles where her bouncy athleticism may be more successful (a la Chen Qingchen).

    Lin Fangling is the new Chinese darling in doubles. She may be smallish in size but dynamic and aggressive with both her front court play. Li Yijing is the other new Chinese treasure, having won 2 bronzes (mixed and WD) and is the reigning AJC in mixed doubles. I think she’s tidier and steadier than Lin Fangling but not as aggressive (maybe more Huang Yaqiong rather than Chen Qingchen)

    DiWang was outclassed by the fantastic Indonesian pair yesterday. The Indonesians were fast both in attack and defense and very good at the flat play. The Chinese pair will need to find a different dimension to their usual fast power game to succeed at the senior level.

    Agree with all on WZY. She is the best of the new players. Another is Tan Ning with her power. She needs individual attention to improve her game. The double gold medallist Ling Fangling is a talent. Together with her current XD partner , Feng Yan Zhe, I think they will progress further. She understands doubles play and is a natural. Yes Li Yijing is also a potential.. LFL's partner, the tall Zhou Xin Ru although was weak in a few areas, has a strong smash. I was surprised they managed to pull through to win as ZXR was being attacked by the Indonesians. I also like the two MS RCM and DTY. They should be given specialist coaching, i.e. one on one to improve their weak points. As for Zhou Meng I am afraid although she is still young she needs a lot of work. Not a good prospect for the future.
    I feel its good to have new coaching blood with the arrival of the Koreans. The doubles play certainly needs it, both Mens and Womens. But I think extra attention should be given to the talented 15, 16 and 17 year olds to prepare them for the tough challenges ahead. Its good that these young talented players are appearing in tournaments. It does point to the fact that somebody is doing something positive. I just hope that they are not left in the back burner and we see them again when they are in their 20's like Liu Haicho and those in that group. Finally I agree that the SFX and LSF are beginning to look like they are leading that group of Juniors. Well done to them. I hope to think that the future is getting better?

    Let them play in more international challenge tournaments, not just in Lingshui. Don't write off Liu Liang just because he had a bad day against YR of Indonesia. Must understand that he played many matches before that match, spearheading China's mixed team challenge.

    I said don't write off Liu Liang because his name was not mentioned for specialist coaching. China normally do not send boy players for junior international tournaments when they are 15/16. The exceptions are SYQ ( with Xue Song in AJC) and Liu Liang also in AJC 2017or2018 .

    The Fuzhou China Open draw is out. Will you believe that 4 CHN MS are drawn in the same half quarter? Not only that, LD will face CL in R1! They, along with LGZ and HYX, will battle each other for just one spot in QF.

    You mean in the same eighth of the draw? :D well, without seeing the draw I'd assume there's going to be a lot of home entries, so the chances of that happening are comparatively high. LD and CL meeting so early is unlucky for them, but at least that takes one of the consistent underachievers out of the tournament immediately

    What? All four CHN MS in the same quadrant?! Horrible draw.

    I know right. It is really suck to be in this situation, especially when the tournament is held in home ground.

    China has 5 MS entries, not 4. But yeah, it's pretty bad luck to have 4 of them play each other in the first round.
    Otoh - Taiwan has only 2 entries and they play each other in the first match as well, so CHN can't complain too much :D

    I know, SYQ is in the opposite half alone. Still...no consolation that the only two TPE MS are drawn against each other in the opening round.

    I hope BWF brings back the rule stipulating no same-nationality matchups in Round 1. That's just my preference, I believe most of the MAs and their players share my sentiment.

    I like that rule, although I'd add limits to it (only if players do not exceed a quarter of participants, for example). We have it for local competitions regarding clubs instead of nationality as well.

    the next world tour tournament
    i don't like it for individual tournaments. it automatically skews the draw in their favor which defeats the whole purpose of the draw system.

    so the 32nd ranked japanese ms player gets a pass and doesn't have to play momota in round 1? that gives him the most favorable treatment even though he's the lowest ranked player in the tournament. in essence unseeded players are getting treated as if they are seeded.

    never mind what the ma's might think. what do the players who get screwed think? what if you're the player getting screwed? what if you're the opposing ma?

    what if you're the 9th highest ranked player in the tourney, and not from japan, and unseeded (which means you are subject to the random draw), and you have to play momota cuz the 32nd ranked player from japan was originally drawn to play him? how is it decided which player is moved to that slot? does that sound fair to you?

    as soon as you make 1 concession, other concessions start to add up as a consequence. eventually the draw is not so random.

    i think fans need to let go of the 'team' concept because these are not 'team' tournaments.

    Is this the first time ever that a Chinese player/pair/team loses to an American-born American in badminton?

    I’m pretty sure the mighty Li Gen had scaled deeper depths previously
