    Before covid, cyf is nearly perfect, dominated all the tournaments, win back to back to back, i dont know about her now but she is so stable, and has really good h2h to all ws players, except tai

    Perfectly ok, a lot of pairs did it.

    One time China had XD MD and WD with people playing twice on all discipline (Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei for example).

    I think there are three group in WS

    The first is Marin, Chen YF, Tai
    The second is Okuhara, Yamaguchi, An Se Young, Ratchanok
    And the a group with Sindhu and He Binjiao, they can surprise us in big tournaments

    Yes!

    in all honesty, if the Olympics is not held in Japan, I would think that other WS will take the title: Marin, Tzu Ying, Intanon, Yufei... And even Sindhu.. They are all strong contenders. Depending on the draw too of course.

    I think the Chinese players will come back extremely strong. From the pictures I've seen of their training, they've been working very hard on the physical aspect (and surely other parts as well). They are the only nation that has several world class players in every discipline, so their sparring will always be of higher quality than for other nations.

    Axelsen’s technique is a little better than Antonsen but Antonsen seem to have better mental game than Axelsen.
