"I have never missed a World Championships, and it's kind of sad to not able to join my teammates for the world meet this year," said Liu Ying.

"It was very frustrating and disappointing right after the surgery, I couldn't even balance myself on one foot. However, after few round of rehabilitation, I am getting stronger and faster,” said Liu Ying.


Meanwhile, Liu Ying remained encouraged and optimistic about her status for 2015.


"With good progress in my recovery, I am hoping to start going back to training in December, and I may play in the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold in January 2015," added Liu Ying.


When talked about who would be her partner upon her return, Liu Ying said it would up to the coach to decide who they want her to partner with.


"For now, I'm just focusing on getting healthy and trying to remain as strong as I possibly can so when I'm cleared, I'll be ready to play."
