Chen Qingchen admitted to feeling tired playing two disciplines.
Chen-pion Qingchen !!!
Future looking really bright for Team China.
Chen Qingchen's prize money today is USD40K , I'm referring to her share after deducting what goes to CBA (half). Not bad for a 19-year-old girl in China for one week's work.
No prob. Add He Bingjiao to that list, she's also still 19. Future look shimmering bright for Team China. So envious!
She's laughing her way to the bank this year. Double duty means double prize money payout.
Siwei is the youngest male players to win in here, says GC.
Some pics would be great.. .anyone?
From oldest to youngest of the 19 years old Chinese quartet.
gelopisan mentioned GC was referring Zheng as the youngest male player.

MD final is about to start now.
I think I heard her said male player during the victory ceremony just now, probably correcting herself.
I still think it is not so wise if this extra burden goes on in the long run, for certain period at her young age, possibly for sharpening her skill & tactical plays, it may be okay. Time will tell... a year or two are sufficient to conclude.
Expect MAS MD to take this one.
Chinese regeneration is top notch. 2 titles from 19 years old juniors is just remarkable!
Even the highly experienced 26-yr-old Zhang Nan is struggling to cope in two disciplines in every tournament, I'm a bit concerned for Chen Qingchen. But, maybe ,it's slightly less strenuous or demanding for the female doubles player than the male who has to do a lot of the hard smashing in both MD and XD.
The very chance for Goh/Tan to bag the title here.... what a good & rare opportunity [in the absence of the giants].
Still need many more rise-ups and more evenly in all disciplines to prop the long history of establishment! And some dead woods are still in int'l circuit.
The way they're playing now, I will place my bet on them over Zhang Jun/Gao Ling at their best.
For the male role in XD is more demanding, a dual task like the Zhang Nan's case is a bad designation, indicating the shallow depth of available resources within the Chinese team!
