    he knows the consequences. it was the right move because it was his choice to quit. fans may not like it, but hey, it's his life.

    Right, it was reported here http://sports.qq.com/a/20171013/029220.htm - I'll just translate what he said at the interview after receiving the " Best Athlete Award" together with Ding Ning, Ma Long, Zhang Peimeng and others, altogether 51 awardees for the various sports.

    At the interview, he expressed his personal desire for next year, that he can make a breakthrough from 19 world championships (counting the number of OG, WC, Thomas Cup,and Sudirman Cup titles) record to reach 20. As we know, in 2018, there are the Thomas Cup at Bangkok and the World Championships at Nanjing.

    "Many people have been asking me when I'll be retiring and suchlike, but at the moment I feel that my physical conditioning is still not bad, furthermore no injuries whatsoever,and I also want to plan well my 2018 tournament schedule; moreover, next year, there are the Thomas Cup and the World Championships on home soil,as such it's also my wish to break my world championships record from 19 to 20."

    Beside all those accomplishments, he is a normal man. He did things normal men want to do. Some did it. Some dare not to but dreaming about it.

    Lin Dan is also proving to be an Evergreen like Peter Gade whom he wishes to emulate, and on the road to surpassing him, probably already did, winning the MAS Open PSS, the WC silver, BAC silver and the CNG MS gold and counting.

    More surprising to me is that the aging Lin Dan is (one of) the most hardworking player so far this year driven by his desire to qualify for the WC last minute and doing well at the domestic but highly important quadrennial CNG.

    I've thought, after such a hectic schedule since the WC through the CNG back-to-back three weeks and, after a week's break, the JPN Open, that he would take a short break , skipping the European tour, before resuming at the CHN Open PSS on home soil, but no. Hope to see him competing the year end finale SSF before the winter break, though there is the CBSL back home.

    Talking about the CBSL (China Badminton Super League), I wonder if he would continue representing the Beijing club as it's still owing him last year's remuneration of RMB4 million for which he is contesting a lawsuit to recover it.

    He is now a resident of Beijing, which other professional clubs can he play for ? Perhaps a change of management with remuneration backed by banker's guarantee might be needed to assure him and other like-mined players to continue with the said club.

    Oh, I mixed up, memory lapse? So it's the Guangzhou club that owes him the money, not Beijing.

    As what you posted is graphics and not text, I can't use the online dictionary directly on any words I don't understand so that I can at least make an intelligent guess even if the free dictionary is not up to translating it properly. So I'd just do my best as follows:

    Yu Xiaohan, yesterday 11.40 from her iPhone 7 Plus

    @Lin Dan Though you have many fans and didn't include me as your good friend (on your weibo), and even accuse me for not paying attention to you, but I still want to wish you happy birthday ! Hope you will bring me and @Jia Yifan_F out more often to eat nice food. After all, we two are rather thin and has to catch up on our nutrition.

    That's Jia Yifan on the foreground. Siting next to Lin Dan is Tian Houwei and next to him is Shi Yuqi. On the left behind JYF , the one standing half stooping is Lu Kai but I can't make it out who it was behind JYF. Where's Yu Xiaohan, didn't she ask Lin Dan to give her and JYF nice treats ?

    I think the one behing JYF is the badminton photographer that goes with the name shi_tang in insta. He is quite close to badminton players.
