    I can't imagine Chen Hong being any good in doubles...

    I just have a feeling that Cai/Fu look quite like Kim/Ha. Both Cai and Kim play smart game and cover the court well. Fu and Ha play power game replying on their big smash. That's why I thought Cai may be a better XD player than Fu. Just my thought. :)

    I think the point Qidong was making was that it was Robertson/Emms that challenged the seemingly invulnerable Kim/Ra to three games, while Zhang/Gao went down to Kim/Ra in two games. While that's true, Zhang/Gao have beaten Kim/Ra in the past, but currently it was Robertson/Emms that gave them the most trouble, hence why Qidong said they may be the new challenger.

    Then again, badminton is such a fickle sport.

    As for Zhao Ting Ting, I'm particularly fond of her. Out of all the Chinese girls in the Doubles and Mixed, she's my favorite. I agree she's not the fastest, but I don't think she's slow at all. I personally think the problem lies in her partner, Chen. If she would team up with another partner, like say Cai, I think they would become a new challenger aside the Zhang/Gao combination.
