    Back on topic, what changes will you expect in the JS11, if it is released? 3u version this time I hope.

    Saina can retire from Badminton now. Her net worth is over a billion USD mainly because of her movie roles.

    You need your excuse of trolling here again. You can't mean this serious. You know nothing about badminton (associations, sponsorship etc.), economics(who copy who?) and culture in Germany. You are very abusive. Stop talking ********. You are offending me as hell. You are very insensitive and disturbing. BTW you are talking rubbish. And please stop to twist things here. Does your brain have Koro, too?

    That one was after a particularly tiring rally where she got caught out of position and allowed Shixian Wang to control the rally. She lost this rally, but still won the match.

    Ah ok. Glad she won as well, hate to see a young talent go down with injury.

    yeah. She and Kento Momota were the the most notable stalwarts for the Japanese team at the Asian Team Championship tournament. I can't wait to see them in action at Rio.

    I would have to say Kento Momota is my favourite player to watch at the moment. So much to like about his play style, movements and attitude. Not to mention is he still very young.

    Maybe Yonex will make a signature series for him if he keeps his performances up.

    Calm down and chillax ^^

    Those were facts, 9 out of top 10 badminton rank by BWF are dominated by Asian countries ie. China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Hongkong, Taiwan and Thailand. Biggest economy GDP is America followed by China and Japan, with India expected to be in the top list within few years.

    As I explained that I only know Bavarian beer and sausages. People here prefer driving Lexus, Toyota or Nissan so I don't even dig German cars. I use Adidas tho for wear, socks, etc.

    Did Srikanth switch to Yonex? He's been using it lately, and a post he made to FB when he landed in Germany show him wearing Yonex, even hashtagging #yonex in the post

    LD and LCW don't really care what rackets they use, in terms of the level of play they can achieve. From Yonex, Victor, Li Ning or even Apacs, they will play at the same level. So they will just pick whichever one is reputable and pays them a lot etc. However, I doubt they would pick a racket that I made from noodles even if I paid them a million dollars a day hehe. So the fact they have picked Yonex means that Yonex must make decent rackets. There's no such thing as a "best racket" for anyone. Lots of people here seem to take pride in being expert on racket technology and what is a better racket etc. All good, you've got your opinions, but that's all it is. You don't need to know what the chess pieces are made of (or how they were made) in order to play good chess (okay analogy not perfect, but hopefully the point is). Ever wonder why we never see professional players describe their favourite rackets in detail and give power and defense ratings? Even the "professional" coaches who give such ratings are only doing so for their jobs' sake. Heck, I know lots of national level players who didn't even know whether their racket was 3U or 4U.

    Anyway, I support mikescully by the way. Just wanted to get people to read something controversial before I said that hehe.
