    How did you copy and paste this article into this forum from another website. And how did you make the article font size bigger than the original ?

    Can you please describe. Greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Copy from electronic paper/online newspaper, not other website ;) This is 100% zoom/view ...

    Alternatively you could scan or photograph the original newspaper article ...

    "Top-seeded Wang Shixian was given a walk-over by her team mate Liu Xin, who complained of a fungal big toe. Then Wang Xin, the third-seeded world runner-up, was also allowed to pass into the third round without wasting any energy.
    This time her opponent was Li Xuerui, who is ranked seven places below her colleague, and in this instance the ailment was described as a bad back.

    Well, thanks for that most disgusting picture.

    The point is, if her toes would look like that, she wouldn't have been able to play against and easily beat Susan Egelstaff.

    (Shift +) "Prt Sc" :D, print screen and paste + edit in photoshop (probably can do it in MS Paint but it's too troublesome to use for me)

    That's really gross limb7567. :D
    And if Liu Xin has legs like this, it is better she stays home.

    I think it is a good reason. That's a big fungus.

    Chinese payers are battling each other in WD and XD. Why only WOs in WS? Probably has something to do with WBF's refusal of resonal request to redraw WS after two tops WS out.

    Or they are still searching for the right pairs whilst the singles department is close to sorted already, especially in WS ...

    .
    Many BCers like to watch the excellent skills of Chinese players; for example, watching the China Badminton League matches.

    But somehow when Chinese players come out to play at our BWF tournaments, some BCers say it's not worth watching Chinese teammates playing against each other.

    Is there something weird about us? The answer is: "No". Why? Because if there is 'match fixing' in matches, no one wants to watch them. ;););)
