    Zhu Lin - The Next Queen from China?

    I was impressed by Zhu Lin when she last played in the Malaysian Open and have actually posted a thread on 29 Jan 2007, extracts of which are reproduced here.

    I asked that question and now got the answer the she is the new World Champion for another two years, since the WC will not be held in 2008, the Olympics year.

    Zhu Lin - The Next Queen from China?


    Veteran Zhang Ning is still World No.1, but her young compatriot Zhu Lin, 23, is showing she has the talent to replace her and Xie Xingfang in the not too distant future. But Zhu still has some way to go to emulate the great feats of Zhang, particularly in her strength and stamina, the lack of which showed up in her match against Wong Mew Choo during the Malaysia Open.

    As of 25 January 2007, Zhu Lin is ranked 4th in the world, behind Zhang Ning, Xu Huaiwen (Germany), Wang Chen (Hong Kong). Behind her are Lu Lan and Xie Xingfang, who just beat her in the Korea Open. And another compatriot, Jiang Yanjao, is ranked 9th. But Zhu has beaten Xu Huaiwen in the KO and her final appearance there will certainly earn her more points and put her in contention for a higher ranking. She was previously ranked behind her contemporaries, Lu Lan and Jiang Yanjao but has now overtaken them.

    Some facts about Zhu Lin:

    1984 - Born in Shanghai.
    1993 - Started badminton at 9.
    1998 - Member of Shanghai Badminton Team
    2002 - Joined the National Team at 18.

    Notable Performances:

    2006

    * Champion: Indonesia and Thaland Opens.
    * Elected as best young player in China's National Team.
    * Runner-Up: Swiss and Korea Opens

    2007

    * Champion: Malaysia Open
    * Runner-Up: Korea Open

    Malaysia Open 2007 SS

    Defeated:
    R1 - Anu Nieminen (Finland) 21-13, 21-13 (30m)
    R2 - Julia Wong (Malaysia) 21-8, 21-16 (27m)
    QF - Hwang Hye Youn 21-10, 21-10 (28m)
    SF - Yao Jie 21-8, 21-11 (26m)
    F - Wong Mew Choo 21-14, 21.12 (42m)

    Korea Open 2007 SS

    Defeated:
    R1 - Anna Rice (Canada) 21-11, 21-2 (21m)
    R2 - Tine Rasmussen (Denmark) 21-17, 21-10 (30m)
    QF - Xu Huaiwen (Germany) 21-11, 21-13 (29m)
    SF - Petya Nedltecheva (Bulgaria) 21-9, 21-16 (30m)
    F - Lost to Xie Xingfang (China) 14-21, 7-21 (33m)
    (Xie did not play in the MO and the many matches must have taken a toll on Zhu Lin who is suspect on her strength and stamina as mentioned earlier.)

    Zhu Lin is one of the few Chinese stars that is exceedingly good looking (regal and sophisticated) with a well-proportioned body that could easily fit into that of a professional model. Yet her hair is fiery like the male lion's mane in motion. Looks like there is both 'yin' and 'yang' in her!

    Will Zhu Lin be the next Queen of the court?

    She is definetely my favorite CHN player, if I were to vote, I would chose her as one of the most talented and beautiful players in recent memories.

    I must admit prior to the WC07 WS final, I have not seen ZL played (or in fact did not pay much attention to her even if it is televised).

    What caught my attention during the WS final was how aggressive she was in her approach to every shot, it is very unlike the standard WS play where you see a lot of lob and clear.

    I am not sure if that was a specific strategy against WC or that was her usual style of play. Can someone enlighten me on that?

    I'm looking forward to see how well she can stabilize her results after this. This year she either wins an event or goes out in the early rounds. But maybe with the World Champion title, comes greater performance.

    Remembered how CY/FHF took 8 months to win another tournament right after the Madric WC win in Sept 2006.
