LSW beats WMY in the Qatar Open, but technique-wise, WMY is actually better than LSW. WMY has the power that women players generally do not have. Her forehand is similar to LXX, and her backhand is also very good.

WMY might be the world #1 as early as the end of this year.

you can say whatever about the technique comparisons but LSW is a better player  now and I would say at least for a year or 2

People said similar things about Fan Zhendong in 2015. Look how that turned out. And there are fewer competitive men in the CNT.

When they're young, they can rise in a blink of an eye.  I remember when Mima Ito as a 14 yr. old won the German Open for women's singles.  A middle schooler winning a Pro Tour at the senior level.  Wang Manyu is 19 yrs old and already has a proven track record.  The competition for #1 in China is extremely tough, but look how fast she's already advanced.

ML has been so good since 2015. Without ML, FZD would have been #1 in 2016. 

For the women CNT team, there is no one in really exceptional condition to compete with WMY at the moment. We will see.

Sun Yingsha, who is 2 years younger, is a possibility.  WMY leads 3-2 head to head though most recently WMY beat SYS badly at the Qatar Open.  Could have just been a bad day for SYS.

Head-to-head in ITTF database. (Qatar Open result is not in ITTF database yet.  Soon it will be.)
Wang Manyu vs Sun Yingsha.  (Sun Yingsha is younger.)

For more precision, WMY is 1999 and SYS is 2000
Just WMY just celebrated her bday last month and SYS wil celbrate her later this year (will turn 18yo this year) :)

Oh..?? :o
Not true..??
I remember there was a polemic about her age few years ago (that she was older than her "official age") like for FZD... ^^''
But I was talking about official DOB... I don't know much more... ^^''

WMY was born in 1999, not WMY is 1999

That's my point exactly. Ding Ming and Liu Shiwen are still playing. Chen Meng and Zhu Yuling will not yield all the time without a fight and Zhu Yuling actually has special elements of her game that others don't have that enable her to disrupt the timing of others. Chen Xingtong and Sun Yingsha are not rolling over.

So forgive me if I do not find this clairvoyant prediction on Wang Manyu instantly credible. The field is a much safer bet over the next year or two.

Hard to say when it will happen, but we can see that WMY, SYS, & CXT are China's future and all capable of being number one. All 3 have no problems against foreign competition so they're just competing amongst themselves for now. WMY might be the strongest of the 3 at the moment, but that can easily change. I personally think CXT has the more complete game, but she sometimes has problems sustaining such a high level.

Does the CNT really care who is World #1 women?  Not really.  With 7 of the top 10 women in
the world.  Most likely 1 of those 7 will win every major event.  It is a team effort.

Maybe in 3 or 4 years. ZYL, LSW and DN are far more consistent...and there is also Chen Meng....

It is interesting how many "next #1 posts" are made throughout time, when comparing to how many people have actually ever achieved and maintained the #1 spot.

WMY beat DN again in the China national championship for the title. It is too bad that she does not have the chance to play the world up.

I feel that coach Xiao Zhiang is going to make WMY the fastest female grand slam winner just like he made ZJK.

Actually WMY is better than Chen Meng. WMY has more complete stroke. She will be dominant player in the next few years.

In the rating for October, Wang Manyu is likely to be number 6 ...

strokes are important but the mental is the key....otherwise LSW would have won both WC and Olympics...several times.

Of course mentality is the main key of success. I'm very surprised to see how her FH & BH works as well. Regarding her will be dominant in the next few years, it seems like I have to correct it, because after all competition will be very tight in the future.
