My personal opinion: I dont care if they microwaved their paddle then rubbed Tom and Jerry grade slippery oil all over the paddle. Not really a match ya should be losing even if they were cheating. Fight me in the comments.

The lady player, Jiangshan Guo has been rated as high as 2555 and usually plays around 2500 level.  Her rating going into the tournament was low for some reason.  My guess is Diaw expected an easy match and hadn't played long pips in ages, so this hurt him a bit.  Also as a former pro from China, Jiangshan is probably used to playing high quality shots that Diaw produces and actually might have more trouble from weaker players. 

Having spent some time around her and her husband, there is absolutely no way she cheated.  Diaw just needs to spend a few hours playing against long pips and focus a bit more.

I don't think she cheated, but it is suspicious that she says she uses Ilius S when Ilius (and butterfly rubbers in general) doesn't come in green (yet). Based on photos posted and the rubber color i assumed it was dawei 388d-2 (and she used to use 388d-1).

If I had to guess, based on the fact that she's been making videos for Butterfly and has switched to the Super Viscaria and Dignics, she's probably sponsored by Butterfly and she said that so as to keep them happy.


In this video they show her using Illius as well.

She was less than truthful when asked about her bh rubber. Instead of showing her racket, she looked it up on her phone and the rubber she stated only comes in black and red. Somewhat suspicious.
Photino/Super Viscaria : H3 (FH)/Dr N pips(BH)

It is not really suspicious at all.  If a player is sponsored by a certain company and use another company's products, they certainly do not want to advertise it.  They would want to be as quiet about it as possible.  There are countless examples of people who are sponsored by one company but play with a viscaria with a modified handle, or they use butterfly rubbers or H3 when their main sponsor is some other company.

I agreed, why is no one is saying WR#90 cannot play against LP, lol . I think it’s a handicap when someone plays with LP anyways, there is so much a LP player can do
