    I don't think it will happen as his wife is not from the national squad.

    Xia Xuanze playing men's double?

    Here is the link, sorry for those can't read chinese:

    http://sports.sina.com.hk/cgi-bin/news/show_news.cgi?type=badminton&date=2006-07-06&id=823670

    Personally I am happy for Xia that he can find a second chance in chinese national team, but I am not sure this is a good thing for his career and the chinese men team. Xia is already 27 years old, isn't it too late for double? Besides, is Chinese national team so desperate in men's double that they have to seek players from veteran single players instead of youngsters? It's really a big loss for China that Tang Xianhu retired so early.

    Can't comment about Xia playing men's double but Master Tang deserves his retirement. Master Tang has a host of ailments.

He and partner Zhao Tingting almost stole the show once again by clinching the first game against Laybourn and Rytter-Juhl but the latter finally got their game together and won.

Xia has come out of nowhere with his speed, power and most of all, his extravaganze. Unlike other Chinese, he showed his emotions and whenever he was on court, something would happen. I’ve played against him many times and it was always a pleasure,” said Jonassen, who mentioned that Xia should have played in the Olympics in 2004.

Xia’s opponents of the day, however, were not aware that they had just put an end to his career. “He could be a very good mixed double player. Good defense, very strong attack and a lot of trick shots. If he was to practise a little bit the first few shots and his flat game, he would be a very good mixed player,” said Laybourn.

It worked and relieved us from pressure and we got our game back together,” said Laybourn.

They will meet England’s Robertson and Emms, who showed much more consistency and focus than the previous night where they had lost against the very same Chinese. This time, they faced Marisa and Limpele of Indonesia who admitted to not playing as well as the previous evening. “Things didn’t go as well as yesterday and Robertson played really well tonight,” said a disappointed Limpele, who now has all the Super Series tournaments on his mind before his main target, the Olympic Games in Beijing.

    i watched that XD match from aerotus100JP's downloads, and I thot Xia X played quite well and creatively. Both Laybourn and juhl have no answer to Xia's deceptive drop shots. Ting ting played well in the first game but began to deteriorate with pressure from the danes. She made quite a few serve errors near the end, including the match point.

    KJ comment was right. It was lyb's mistake of replacing xia with young bcl for the 2004 olympic. Xia had beaten TH before plus that Xia also won the 2003 WC, therefore, shouldn't crater under big event pressure like the young LD and BCL back then.

    China doesn't have much depth on in MD and XD, maybe Xia can play for a few more years in MD and XD. Look at the Eriksen and Lungaard, they are 34 or 35 and still playing very strong.

    Agree. Also the injury suffered from years of intensive training get to the CHN players much earlier than others. :cool:

    Btw, what racket Xia is using for the doubles these days?

    Why did he drop off the singles scene so suddenly? Injury or an unexpected decline in physical prowess?
