Li is a good player who is capable of creating an upset or two but do you really think that if she had beaten Sindhu in Rio group stages, she could have defeated Tai Tzu Ying, Wang Yihan and Nozomi Okuhara to win silver medal?

But at that time Tai Tzu-ying is not that scary like nowadays... It is amazing she started to build her game and reduces those error amounts post Olympic
Before that, we often describe her as "may suddenly die on court". (WC 2015 vs Lindaweni Fanetri for example)

Denmark open and world junior championship just ended. China is a total flop in both competition. What ever happened to this team after the olympics. Lin Dan is the God of badminton but he's definitely done playing shitty tournaments, why is there no youngsters to replace him. And why is Wang Shixian not playing anymore, she's very pretty she needs to play again. :wall:This thread is dead, why is no one posting. :pope:

Wang Shixian retired after missing out on Rio Olympics. 

 

Sadly Totallympics never had a good amount of Badminton fans who discuss things. 

 

I am really happy with the way Srikanth is playing this year. 3 Superseries Titles in a year :bowdown: Also, this is his 5th career SS title putting him on joint 4th behind legends LCW (45), Lin Dan (21) and Chen Long (17)

Shi Yuqi is a pretty decent replacement (though he hasn't been that good the second half of the year) and they have plenty of young women who are getting closer to the top.

But no doubt that China is looking weaker than they've been for a long time.

And about the totallympics badminton community. Sadly that's pretty much me and a handfull of Asians.

And Srikanth reaches his 5th SS final of the year. :bowdown:

After back to back wins in Indonesia and Australia in June, now Srikanth will be hoping to have back to back wins in Denmark and France in October. :fingers:
