    She surely know how to answer politically correct stuff.
    "after all there are relatively few female players in the provinces and there is a gap between them and me" everything else so diplomatic, almost appears to be scripted.

    Looks like she isn't only graceful in badminton but also in tackling questions

    A sign of maturity being tactful and diplomatic. She has a rebellious streak and her behaviour showed in the past whether off or on court but for years her life, mostly career, has been full of ups and downs, particularly her Olympic deselection, sinking into depression for almost a year, and several setbacks, including missing another Olympics, a number of hard knocks.

    It's just as well that she has grown up and probably leading a happier life when she chose to be the little woman behind her man, Chen Long.

    Also glad to see that she still has the passion for the sport and the will to keep up with training in the provincial team in preparation for the National Games this September. Born 13 Feb 1990, still only 27 , somewhat premature for her to retire from the pro circuit. As she is now pursuing a masters degree in a sports university, wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

    While I can't say she was among my favourites, but still somewhat sad at her retirement.
    She is not even that old. She could have continued if she wanted.

    Another elite pairing. Wonder which pair is better in XD? LD’s, LCW’s or CL’? Did LCW’s wife ever been #1 in WR?

    Sorry for missing your post. WSX is more attractive than CL.

    When Wang Shixian's pregnancy is made known, some fans discovered that Chen Long still 'owes' her a wedding. When to 'make up for' the wedding ? Chen Long smilingly replied to Sina sports :" The wedding ceremony should take place after the Tokyo Olympics, I suppose, now that the OG qualification cycle has just begun, I have no time to prepare for the wedding. Thinking once I have the time, to properly prepare for it."

    Tokyo 2020 Gold, wow what a bold prediction :D
    Sometimes the Olympic Games presents surprising result, badminton event is also no exceptional, Barcelona 1992 (Alan Budikusuma) and Sydney 2000 (Ji Xinpeng) are the best example for men's singles champion. We'll wait whether the pendulum will shift to the underdog after last three editions went to the faves, Lin Dan (2008/2012), Chen Long (2016).

    They were officially married in 2017 December, collected their marriage certificate, it's just the traditional wedding ceremony that they postpone. If I'm not wrong, at that time, they held a small, private affair and Chen Long promised her a proper grand wedding one day.

    They haven’t had the wedding banquet where lots of guests come. But they are legally married. :)

    http://sports.sina.com.cn/others/badmin/2019-09-04/doc-iicezzrq3422553.shtml (I shan't translate the entire lengthy article which is mostly about Wang Shixian sharing her feelings,emotions,experience, concerns and anxieties as a first-time mother)

    “起名叫小咖啡是因为谌龙喜欢喝咖啡,我们全家人都喜欢喝咖啡。他出生的时候黄疸数值有点高,身上有点黄,晒太阳后一下变得很黑,我妈妈开玩笑说这孩子从咖啡晒成了黑咖啡,现在白了一点,可以改名叫白咖啡了。”
    " The baby's first name is Little Coffee because Chen Long loves coffee, our whole family is all fond of coffee. When he's born, the jaundice (bilirubin) level is a bit high, body somewhat yellow, after sunning turned dark all of a sudden, my mum joked that the little child has turned from coffee to black coffee,and now that he's become a bit fair, we can change his name to White Coffee."

    [The caption in the photo says, postpartum (also called postnatal) depression. At one time she was a little worried that she might be suffering from it, no, she is not undergoing any PPD therapy, just baby blues for which she's gotten over it now.]
