    I am a great fan of Wang Tzu Wei and I have always been very impressed by his performance at the court. He is such a good, great and talented player. His attitude at the court is very good too. Very courteous, very polite, very good. He never complains and accepts everything that is said.




    Even yesterday when he lost the match due to refereeing errors he also didn't complain. He is so good. He didn't say anything accepted the decision. Hence I felt now is the time I create a thread for this player.


    He played so well en route to the semifinals in Swiss Open. He is very young too. I believe that this player can be a good potential player in the future. I really look forward to see him play in more upcoming tournaments.

    Wow as a great fan of Wang Tzu Wei I am certainly very impressed with his performance thus far. Although he may have lost in the semifinals of Swiss open 2016, he will always remain as a young and successful MS player in my heart. Hope he will continue to win more MS titles.

    Wang Tzu Wei is certainly one of the young up-and-comers, highly promising.

    Excerpts:

    An audio recording apparently revealed that Chinese Taipei Badminton Association executives still intended to punish players who sought to honor their own sponsorship deals, despite an earlier promise to not do so, prompting lawmakers yesterday to ask the government to implement reforms to national sports bodies.

    The association convened the meeting, at which they issued a public apology over a fine issued to female Olympian Tai Tzu-ying (戴資穎) and promised she would not face punishment.

    “We must teach a lesson to these athletes for breaking the rules,” the audio reportedly said. “Yes, we had promised not to go after Tai, but we did not say we would not punish [badminton player] Liao Kuang-hao (廖冠皓),” who was fined NT$300,000 (US$9,550) two years ago over a sponsorship row.

    The badminton quarrel centers around NT$109.2 million in a sponsorship deal with Yonex from 2011 to 2014, and a yearly NT$20 million deal that began last year.

    Wang Tzu-wei (王子維), a silver medalist at the 2013 World Junior Championships, was fined for breaching association rules by not wearing a uniform provided by Yonex.

    Although the association reduced the fine to NT$100,000, it was criticized when reports emerged that Wang’s working-class parents were selling meat buns at Taipei’ Ningsia Night Market (寧夏夜市) to help make the payment.

    One official said Wang was only 18 at the time, so how could such a young man not yet working a regular job have money to pay such a fine.

    “He was a rising star for Taiwan, but the association still wanted to punish him,” the official said.

    These recent conflicts of individual sponsorships versus team sponsorships are an interesting development in badminton and might be a sign of the relative strength of badminton.

    What predictions are there for the future?

    A) Team sponsorship will go down because money is flowing to players' individual sponsorships contracts

    B) national associations will have a hole in their pockets - they will eventually require topup funding from the government. The UK is a good example where sports and players are given extra funding from the national lottery on a very strict performance based funding approach.

    Wang Tzu Wei got punished by his association. Looks like a good chance for him to move overseas :D
