    You forbid freedom of speech and expression here ? o_O:p:):D

    Better smash than WSX, huh? If only WSX has a smash that's a little worse than his, how I wish.

    To me, Wei Nan is a fantastic late bloomer, like Hu Yun and Sho Sasaki; they are in good company.

    I'd like to nickname Wei Nan, The Rocket.

    Don't think Wei Nan will go to Rio.

    What a match today.

    One of the Best matches of 2016.

    The way he hold Tanongsak at the net after the handshake as if he wanted to say, ''Bro, I want to hug you too'' was so cute.

    I admire his smashes. They are so good. But it seems to me that he is not a fan of long drawn out games.

    Every time I see him play with his incredible net play and powerful smashes I wonder why he has not won a lot more titles. Oh, and he's fast, too.

    Funny thing that I got the following clip as suggestion in YouTube a couple of days ago and couldn't help but being blown away by his smashes.



    I've never actually followed him, but the way he demolished LCW in that match was really impressive. If he performed on this level just remotely consistent, he might have become one of the big guns and won titles for sure.

    He's a high risk, high rewards player for sure. One of the beauties of this game is a offensive shotmaker in full flow like how he did against LCW. Hitting consistent, powerful, accurate smashes that LCW couldn't even touch is extremely rare. You know then you had a special performance

    However, the keyword is consistent. Not everyone can be at 100% hitting those smashes every match, unless you're a young, prime Lin Dan.

    Hats off to Wei Nan, now 33 years old, born 4th Jan 1984, who came very close to beating Viktor Axelsen at the Den Open PSS yesterday in R2, 21-17, 10-21, 21-23 in 1hr and 2 mins.
