      Yeah, I think indian players tend to have their own really really unique style, and that can probably prove problematic for many players.

      I am rooting for Lin Gaoyuan, after seeing a lot of his matches over the past 2 years or so, I am really really impressed with his skills, and overall feel for the game. He has a better touch and feel for the game than anyone his age in my opinion. The last person who exemplified such promise at that age was Ma Long, and we all know how well that turned out. I definitely think he has the most promise of any of the young Chinese players.

      As for the women, Zhu Yuling's style of play is super impressive, her backhand is amazing. She won singles competitions in last years world jr championships, despite being like 2-3 years younger than Kasumi Ishikawa

      I hope a non-Asian would win the men singles.
      It seems that Kasumi will win the womens.

      Isn't Lin Gaoyuan that guy who keeps screaming your ears off after every point? Like, the male version of Scozs?

      Yep. That's him. But players often lose that when they get older, so hopefully he will too :P. As a new representative of China you have a lot to prove though, so it is understandable.

      Classy answer there WiWa

      Federer in his younger times was also very vocal
      Now he barely shows any emotion haha

      Yeah, like my earlier post, Zhu Yuling, is like the most promising young female player out there. In last years world championships, Zhu Yuling lost to Kasumi in the team match 2-3, but in the singles match, she 4-0 kasumi. This despite the fact that Kasumi is 2-3 years older than her.

      Okay, that is quite exceptional indeed. Didn't Ishikawa give the current Chinese women team trouble in the World Team Cup?

      Ishikawa is a pretty reasonable force. Japan's juniors are performing pretty well and in the mens specifically France has some great juniors in Gauzy and Robinot. It all depends on whether they can convert being the top players in Europe to being class acts against the whole world, so really whether they can perform against Asia. Robinot got off to a good start :P
