    This is a rookie mistake. I had to tell my kids school badminton team not to place their strongest player in the fifth and last tie for their matches.

    Who is Fang Kai who could brush aside Lei Lanxi in two straight games, 15 and 12 in 33 minutes? Was Lei Lanxi playing with an injury or too exhausted after the Team events? Couldn't find Fang's profile in BWF fansite. Only know that he is from Zhejiang and he looks young from his profile photo in the Chinese National Games website which doesn't provide details of his birth date. Where can I watch a replay of this match if there is one? Kindly share the link please, anyone?

    What an upset. Apparently Lei Lanxi is fatigued from all his matches in the previous rounds of the team event, practically no rest day for him as the individual event starts immediately the day after.

    Still it's quite unexpected for him to lose R1 to a unfancied opponent. Or, don't tell me, China nowadays has several hidden talents or unknown young prodigies just waiting to spring a surprise on unsuspecting victims (if only). I mean, even dark horses should be those who are not unheard-of, not some nobodies.

    Just found out, even the veteran Huang Yuxiang lost to a certain Dong Tianyao in two straights who's not totally unheard-of though.

    Btw, Fang Kai acquitted himself well in G1 to Chen Long , going down by 19-21, only to be routed 6-21 the next set.

    Oh, wait, the lesser known Dong Tianyao after disposing of the more fancied Huang Yuxiang, then went on to send packing the WR17 HKSAR, Lee Cheuk Yiu, in the R16 in three sets, 22-20, 18-21, 21-12. Not bad, lad.

    Chen Yufei needed three sets to prevail over Cai Yanyan, 20-22, 21-15, and 21-12.

    He Bingjiao took it convincingly in two straights against Han Qianxi, 21-13 and 21-11.

    For the WS Quarterfinals, the matchups are : https://pdf.2021shaanxi.com/SHAANXI...~.pdf?random=ab0a60ae28f2f68e2f16920378f16b20

    Top Half = Chen Yufei vs Chen Lu, and Wang Zhiyi vs Wei Yaxin

    Bottom Half = Dai Wang vs Tan Ning, and Zhang Yiman vs He Bingjiao

    Followed the match on live score. The only youngster to survive, Liu Liang ang Wang Zhenxing both lost their matches. Lee Cheuk Yu played many matches and lost many too. Not well prepared for the tournament?

    The Men's Singles Quarterfinals matchups:
    https://pdf.2021shaanxi.com/SHAANXI...~.pdf?random=ab0a60ae28f2f68e2f16920378f16b20
    Top Half:
    1) Chen Long vs Dong Tianyao
    2) Shi Yuqi vs Zhao Junpeng

    Bottom Half
    3) Lu Guangzu vs Li Shifeng
    4) Zhang Weiyi vs Sun Feixiang

    The lineup is heavily skewed towards the upper half where Chen Long and Shi Yuqi are slated to meet in the semifinals. What to do, that's the problem when world rankings are not taken into account for the 14th CNG.

    No idea, beats me. Not only Lee Cheuk Yiu, the entire HKSAR team underperforming. Maybe it has a bit to do with the 14-day quarantine they have been subjected to before the start of the CNG, which they weren't too happy about whilst the mainlanders only required 7 days. ( As I came across it while casually combing for news of the CNG, not sure if my memory serves me right, too lazy to double-check, so cmiiw).

    Obviously, the National Health Commissions of the mainland and the two SARs have different policies with respect to the prevailing Covid situation under their jurisdiction, not something the organizer can do anything about but to abide by accordingly.

    But, let's not forget,all the Chinese Olympians who came back from Japan had to undergo 21-day quarantine just like any foreigners entering the country, for example, Chen Yufei posted videos of her 21-day quarantine on her social media.

    Watching the replays, Cai Yanyan come-from-behind win in G1 against Chen Yufei albeit by the narrowest of margin, 22-20, was something. Then Chen Yufei coming back aggressively the next two games to prevail over her gutsy opponent was equally heartening to see.

    It's certainly fighting badminton all the way for these two adversaries, far from boring even for those who think CYF's game is boring.

    Cai Yanyan is a very attacking player, often a bit too eager to go on the offensive but somewhat wanting in accuracy. She needs to tighten her game and work on her defense as well, for against a top-class opponent, you must expect most of the shots to come back and be on the receiving end of their attacks and counterattacks now and then.

    I noticed that whenever Chen Yufei plays for her province, Zhejiang, in the China National Games or China Badminton Super League, or any such event, Wang Lin will be there coaching her.

    The same goes for Shi Yuqi, Jiangsu, for whom Sun Jun will be in attendance.

    Han Chen Kai announced that he will retire at 23 age. What's happening to him ?

    Tan Ning in the individual events is still playing both WS and WD, in the latter partnering Huang Dongping, she's been eliminated by Jia Yifan/Chen Qingchen in the R16 whilst in WS she's through to the QFs to face Dai Wang tomorrow.

    HK players had two or three weeks of hotel quarantine before the tournament.

    全运会结束啦,最后一次比赛也结束了。从2004年到现在17年的学球之路,感谢一路上一起奋斗的兄弟们,教导过我的教练们,帮助过我的医生们、工作人员和一直支持我的朋友们。这一路过来好像过的还是比较丰富的,有开心、有失落、有无助、有感动、也有遗憾,但人生好像就是得带着点遗憾走下去。15年的羽毛球职业生涯再见啦,带着初心和对未来的期望开始准备进入人生的下一阶段。希望还在一线拼搏的兄弟们越来越好,健健康康的打下去。也希望浙江羽毛球队越来好。
    满满的回忆[呲牙][呲牙]

    Has he called it a day?
    Another Chinese World Junior Champion who can't make the grade at the senior level, in his case due to a serious injury. Luckily he went on to get a degree during his hiatus from badminton. Many Chinese WJ champions could not make the grade at the senior level. Zhu Feng is one of them. Third WJ Champion after Sun Jun and Chen Gang ( who didn't make the grade at the senior level). Mention him because I saw him umpiring one of the matches in the on-going tournament. This man completely disappeared from the Chinese badminton scene after his WJC win.
    Best of luck LGP. Thanks for the memories during your junior days.
