CHINA’S young women’s singles shuttlers are fast gaining ground and should rule the world in the near future.

That is the assessment of China chief coach Li Yongbo here at the World Champion­ships.

Except for seasoned campaigner Xie Xingfang, the others who have made their presence felt over the last one year are Wang Yihan, Lu Lan and Wang Lin.

He said that age was catching up with the current top players like world number one Zhou Mi and Wang Chen of Hong Kong and Dane Tine Rasmussen.

“These experienced players may be at their best now but they would not be there too long. Our China players are young and they are being groomed to be at their prime for the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said Yongbo.

“They may have lost to some of the top players in recent times but I have faith in them. They will be able to dominate soon,” he added.

China have won the women’s singles title in every world meet since Camilla Martin of Denmark’s victory at the 1999 Copenhagen meet.

China’s young women players have been told to prove their worth so it will not be a surprise if they make it an all-China affair in the women’s singles final in Hyderabad.

As far as their women’s doubles chances are concerned, Yongbo said that he was confident one of his pairs would win the title for the eight consecutive time.

China will be banking on Du Jing-Yu Yang, Ma Jin-Wang Xiaoli and Cheng Shu-Zhao Yunlei to keep this tradition going.
