    I think Gong is tired about all the competition, and thinking about retirement. From some CHN media sources, Gong is kinda lack of the awarness due to age and injuries. Stamina is a major problem for her now.

    Maybe being a celebrity is less stressful? :D

    OHHH! how painful!

    :eek: :eek: WHY on earth? i thought they were doing pretty well?

    and i suppose gong means gong ruina? she's considering retirement? but she isn't even old yet, is she? but it may be all for the better. she hasnt been playing up to the expected standards lately.
