      Well even ZJK is no longer a player he used to be, his charisma/name still sells among his fans. It is hard to accept the fact that your hero is now withering like a fish on shore gasping for air (fame). As a previous fan of ZJK I feel the pain of his fans, though.

      druix80 started going ZJK vs. ML that was the bait. As rain is how she is, she replied on it.

      I see. I don't bother to reply to such nonsense post but everyone is different. My 2cents.

      I believe ZJK's technique and tactics are still among the best Chinese players. The problem with him is his body and spirit. If he's healthy and determined to get back, I think he can still get back to top 4. But watching him throughout his career, I'm worried he's too proud to fight and get back from zero.

      I doubt he has the drive because even if he manages to get back to top 4, it'd still be so hard to beat ML or/and FZD to win another big title, supposing that he still wants one. (I'm not even sure he does, he seems full of titles and not hungry anymore). I don't want to get into the ML/ZJK comparison saga but ML (and FZD as well) has evolved into a more complete player since the time ZJK was in his prime. So, it'd be very difficult for ZJK to get ahead of them again.

      I still hope for his return anyway. Go ZJK!

      BTW, the qualification for Hong Kong Open is NOT group but knockout.
      I think this is a good point. I need you to explain the new CNT policy though. I have not heard about it.

      OK. I see now. And I agree, with rules like that, it is hard to imagine we will see much of ZJK in the coming year. It doesn't matter how talented you are or how much you have been training, if you haven't played a significant tournament in months, you are going to have problems at any significant world tour event even in the qualifying.

      Those are not the rules a smart manager would put in place. But a lot of stuff in CNT is weird for awhile now.

      By the way, for both Ping Fun and rainneverever, I recommend that you both figure out how to ignore, and rain, you set up so that your profile will ignore posts by Ping Fun and Ping Fun, I recommend you do the same. There have just been too many of these kinds of things between the two of you where you get into these.

      If you set up the ignore function, you simply won't see the other person's comments. And then these kinds of things will be less likely to escalate to each of you making personal attacks on the other. And rain is right that those comments about ML fans on weibo were directed at her.

      And that is why both of you should find the ignore function and ignore each other. And why, perhaps both of you should learn how not to respond to everything. And both of you should stop attacking each other. You are both valuable members of the forum. Based on history, neither of you should ever feel you need to respond to the other again.

      So, the thread was locked for a short while. Now it is opened again and most of the posts in the off topic discussion have been removed.

      I did not do this as a reproach of any contributors. I simply did this so that, if anyone chose to go back to the original topic, that might be able to happen.

      You were doing a good job. Perhaps I should have stayed out of it. But it seemed to me it had gotten out of hand. Hopefully nobody tries to restart that train of thought.

      I have my doubts about whether ZJK will be ready to play or not. But I am still hoping he is. Because, if he is, the men's division could become a little more interesting.

      Thank you very much for what you did , I want to thank ping fun for her good personality and patient too , I enjoy very much of her posts , but sometimes she doesnt get good feedback which is not right . I know she is not chinese but every thing she sends is good translated and is updated . Maybe my reply is late for here but I wanted to tell this . I am new in this forum but I enjoy being here and Im mostly a reader . I like posts here .
