Why does it seem like China has a lack of quality male double players? For example, in XD, they have so many amazing women players: Ma Jin, Zhao Yunlei, Bao Yixin, Yu Yang, Tang Jinhua. Yet for the men, they pretty much only have Zhang Nan who is quality. Xu Chen is good, but not really great. Their other players just are not elite like He Hanbin. In MD, they only have Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng who are retiring soon most likely. They have players like Guozhendong, who is not that great. Hong Wei, Shen Ye, Qiuzihan, Liu xiaolong don't seem like they will ever be elite players. So why is it that Chinese male double players just aren't as good? Is it because all the talented males choose to play singles instead? Is it because of lack of good coaching? Is it because China doesn't understand the MD tactics and strategy well enough?
