    Is there any thread for this pair? I think they did extremely well, winning many tournaments this year and always made it to final.

    Lu Kai is 191 cm and he is very dominant, with his height he can cover well in mixed double play. And Huang Yaqiong is a good net player as well.

    I hope they can do well until Tokyo Olympic

    Apparently not, you're the first one, thanks.

    To me, Lu Kai/Huang Yaqiong is the No.1 XD pair at the moment. Still going from strength to strength. Way to go ! JiaYou !

    Huang Yaqiong has her own thread already, no?

    She can very well be the next ZYL or YY. She has the potential.

    This pair has a perfect 100% winning record against foreign players this year.

    Huang YQ is quite pretty.

    Yes, Huang Yaqiong has her own individual thread but one with her most successful partner is appreciated.

    A factlet, HYQ and Huang Kaixiang, MD player, are an item.

    Lazy to search the source, I read it many months ago, and I believe my memory serves me right, partly because both share the same surname Huang.

    Btw, the now 23 years old Huang Yaqiong is two years his senior at 21.

    Oh dear :( I was totally shipping her with Lu Kai... but they don't allow that no more, right? XD pairs as couples? What if there's a conspiracy out there saying that all three agreed that they let the male Huang be her public significant other; to divert eyes away from her and Lu's possible actual romance? :p

    I thought CBA had officially banned XD pairs as couples due to the aftermath of the whole ZN/ZYL/TQ thing. That's why Liu and Bao were split up in XD? Maybe I'm wrong?

    @pcll99 could you give a few sentences of the contents of the link so that others may know what you are on about?

    If I'm not wrong, HYQ and HKX are an item for more than a year at least, just before Lu Kai and Huang Yaqiong formed their XD partnership.

    I believe professional players should not mix their private lives with their careers. I think for now, CBA hasn't come out to say it's no longer allowed for players to have romantic relationships. Just one love triangle case and you put a blanket ban on everybody ? That's not fair and somewhat extreme, I'd say.

    They are all adults already and most of them practically have little time for socialising outside of badminton circles, only Sunday is off training and sometimes they are too lazy to go out for other leisure or social activities, except for visiting their friends and relatives who happened to stay at Beijing. I think only some players have their families staying at Beijing for them to go home to.

    I think it's unwise to try and prevent what is natural from developing. Would we rather have some of them having romantic relationships (not liaisons) in secret only to be found out and expelled ? In table tennis in the past, I remember Ma Lin was caught dating with Bai Yang who was dropped from the national team in 2004 so that Ma Lin could stay. The couple didn't end up together. You can read about it here http://tabletennista.com/2012/2/can-there-be-love-in-the-chinese-national/. Romance between National Team players is no longer forbidden.

    Yes, sir.

    The most relevant and important paragraph for the purpose of this thread is Mr Cai Zheng Hua's third and last "proposal":

    "第三,处理好眼前和长远的矛盾的关系。团结教练班子,让有识之士、顾问团队发挥作用。利用你们本身在单双打组的人脉,处理好男女队的关系,防止新的环境下,出现不够坚决、犹豫徘徊、先松后紧的情况。理清若干关系,抓住重点,明确工作思路,教练班子、参赛队员,做好准备,拼每个对手,争取最好的结果。"

    My translation is as follows:

    "Thirdly, handle well the conflict between the short-term and long-term. Unite the coaching team, so that people of insight and consultants play a role. Leveraging your network in a singles/doubles group, to deal appropriately the relationship between men's and women's team, in order to prevent, under the new environment, the emergence of non-resolute, wishy-washy, first-loose-later-tight situation. Sort out certain relationships; seize the key issues; have a clear sense of direction; coaches and players, ready to fight each opponent, for the best results. "

    Perhaps someone from Mainland China can translate and interpret the meaning of these words better than me.

    This looks ridiculously similar to an online translator rather than any true attempt to summarise the meaning.

    If only they could win the last match, this reception would be theirs.

    Lu Kai has retired from the national team. We will always wonder what would happen if he won that fateful match.
