    In recent matches, she loves the net and wider of the out lines most.

    Sigh. I guess I have to temper my ambitions and wishes for her.

    The sight of her suddenly returning to her old habit of being error-prone and gifting points like nobody's business, shook me up again. For the second time in her career, the first time was several years ago, I felt like giving up on her.

    It takes a strong heart to be her ardent fan, no joke. To me, she is like the female version of Lin Dan, the way she plays when she's on top of her game. Alas, it's not to be, I'm afraid, she's not going to make it to the top of the heap.

    I mean, her inability to lift her game to her pinnacle and stay at that level long enough, that is , consistently, is a stumbling block to ultimate success. Well, time for a reality check, have to let go.

    I watched a few of her games lately. Like you said, she is leaner and fitter. But what I could not see, maybe because it's on TV or computer, I do not see her strokes more powerful or moving or playing a faster game - not to mention her focus on the court. She is good on her net play but don't see her that dangerous in the background - like Tai or Ratchanok. To be like a female version of Lin Dan, she would need to read the opponents faster, able to adapt to different opponents on the court, and vicious counter-attack shots.

    Now, this article indirectly explains why He Bingjiao is the size she is today. On looking back, if only she had started with gymnastics first before switching to badminton, she might be much leaner today. Sigh. :p:D:)

    Here's my translation:-

    Recently, He Bingjiao, a member of the Chinese national badminton team, visited the "Champions Parlour" of Sina Sports (a Chinese digital sports media platform) and recalled her childhood experience of playing badminton.

    He Bingjiao said: "When I was young, my first (induction) coach asked me if I wanted to come over for chocolate because he was afraid I would go to gymnastics." I said, yes, yes, every day I'd go eat chocolate. As you know, when you go to the badminton hall, you have to carry a badminton racket, so that's how I took up badminton."

    Chinese badminton player @He Bingjiao, the trumpet, visited Sina Sports # Champions Meeting Room. When talking about why she chose to play badminton, she said that she was tricked by the badminton coach with chocolates.

    Was it the reason why she looked chubbier?? I do hope she could improve her focus and fight for the top spot in the future tournaments.

    Case solved. That coach made her chubby to keep her in badminton instead of losing her to gymnastics.

    He Bingjiao, I am at a loss for words - two titles, the Denmark Open and the French Open back-to-back beating virtually all the best of the best in attendance, with the exception of An Se Young who was absent - how did you do it?

    For you to clinch the first one , overcoming both Akane Y in the semis followed by your compatriot Chen YF in the final was surprising enough for me. Then for you to go on and capture the second title the following week , first routing Tai TY in the semis and then besting the resurgent Marin who's on a comeback trail in hard-fought final was simply astounding, coming from you, that is.

    It's a phenomenal feat that's on par with Akane Yamaguchi's recent tremendous achievement retaining her world title and winning the Japan Open on homeground in two consecutive weeks just a couple of months ago. Right, in recent years, it's getting tougher and rarer for any player to win back-to-back titles where practically all the top players are in attendance.

    To be honest, I've more or less written you off after your recent debacle at the world championship in August when you failed to convert six matchpoints and went on to lose the deuces to Marin in the quarterfinals. But, now, you all of a sudden revive my hopes and wishes once again to see you scale the heights of badminton one day.

    Actually, I have more to say but I'll save them for the future, you know what I mean. For now - Heartiest Congratulations, He Bingjiao ! Great Job.

    Huge back to back performances. She earned those titles the hard way!

    My goodness! This thread started on Nov. 27, 2012, almost ten years ago, for a seemingly "can't miss" talent. So many maddening unforced errors later, HBJ is finally coming to form. Congratulations and keep it up!

    During the break in the third set, Coach Luo YiGang told HBJ: "If you play to your ability and speed, you are the best. No one can beat you. Understand?" Then, HBJ promptly lost the next six points:oops:

    She played well in Europe soil, as long as she can keep consistent and reduce her habit to deliver cheap points to her opponent, she has chance to secure Paris 2024 slot, facing fierce internal competition in CBA.

    Indeed, He Bingjiao did it the hard way, very hard, in particular the second championship at the French Open '22.

    Even Gillian Clark felt the need to talk about her match with Busanan that was played past midnight in the QF of the French Open where she appeared in distress at the end of that encounter; GC related that scene twice in her commentaries, once during HBJ's semifinal match with TTY and the second time during HBJ's final showdown with Marin.

    For myself, while watching HBJ's matches on zhuafan.tech, the livestreamer also posted a snippet of that incident showing her presumably dead tired , kneeling in front of the kitbox with her head buried in the towel held by her hands and supposedly in tears according to some reports; thereafter, as shown, coach Luo Yigang went over to console her, and after she got up on her feet, her opponent, Busanan, also walked over to comfort her by putting her right hand around HBJ's shoulder as they left the court together, what a heartwarming gesture on the part of the Thai.

    That's why before HBJ's face-off with TTY , I was certain she'd be sent packing uneventfully. To my astonishment, the contrary happened, it was TTY who was comprehensively defeated, well and truly beaten in masterful fashion by HBJ !

    Still, to be honest, I was unconvinced, thinking to myself, surely the resurgent Marin on her comeback trail, looking very fit, in fine form and having stopped the redoubtable reigning world champion, Akane Yamaguchi (whom, however, I believed was indisposed) in her track in the semis would proceed, without a shadow of a doubt, to put a possibly humiliating end to HBJ's quest for a second title in two consecutive weeks, what with the toll of accumulated fatigue, probably running on empty, and suchlike affecting HBJ the next day.

    As you know, I went so bold as to state I was prepared to eat my hat if HBJ proves me wrong on final's day of the French Open'22. Well, the rest, as they say, is history.

    I honestly did not expect her to beat Tai after her match with Busanan, but surprise, she was able to beat Tai and reach the finals. I also thought, in the Final, after the first set, Carolina would finish the match in the second set, and surprise again.. The final set, when HBJ surrendered her service at 20-17, again the thought - here we go again, will she lose the match in deuce? Luckily she prevailed, and I think she needs to work on her mental area for competitions.

    Her interview after FO was in English. Her pronunciations were good (very clear) but a little lost in vocabulary. Kudos.
