    Seems that you are late to the party. Here is the link.

    I just borrowed the link from someone here. You can check it in this thread around June 2018.

    Relax, it's sports science, so closely related to what she already does, and not exactly theoretical physics ;)
    Still impressive ofc. German XD player Michael Fuchs did the same, although not as WR#1 :D

    Seriously, it's impossible to not like her, isn't it?


    Even if I don't understand a word, that positive aura of her is infectious. That must be every PR-guy's dream.

    Just check the list of seeded players in BAC. There is no TTY in the list. Looks like she skips more tournaments in preparations of the big tournaments such as WC and OG. But, she hasn't win anything this year. If she doesn't win the title ASAP, there is a chance that someone will overtake her number one position.

    I'm surprised to read that too, perhaps she meant run faster instead of run more. Don't forget, she speaks Mandarin, not English, maybe the translator misheard her or she herself misspoke. Just saying.

    You say it now, and when she becomes a fading away LD, I bet everyone will start criticizing her and wondering why she hadn't retired when she was at the high.

    And I don't know about you, but there is not a shadow of a doubt for me that she will stay true to her words when the time comes. She definitely has a plan for her life and honestly, I have my fingers crossed that she really manages to end on a high note with an Olympic medal around her neck.

    Overstaying your (almost) peak by a bit or 8 years is a massive difference. I'd criticize her if she made an almost ridiculously long deal in 3 years and started&continued rapidly declining less than a year after it was signed
    Oh, and all that after taking off almost 2 years with no obvious reason other than "I want to"

    I see. As long as anyone stays around to play under your terms and conditions. Got it.
