Badminton Racquet Overview – Li-Ning Woods N90

LiNing Woods N-90.(Image Courtesy: racquetforce.com).

LiNing Woods N-90.

This racquet is basically used for singles play.

This racquet is basically built with a heavy head and you can feel the gravity pull of the racquet towards the ground while holding it. This racquet best suits to those who has additional skills to use this racquet.

This racquet is less a defensive than an offensive one. In other words, this racquet can be sued to redirect the smashes hit to you to varous positions if you have the skill to use this racquet and more comfortable only if you know exactly how to use this racquet for an offense. this is beacuse this racquet has a stiff shaft and those going for power can opt for a lighter and less stiff racket that will no doubt increase your game play better than the Li-Ning Woods N90

Since, this racquet has a heavy head and dtiff shaft, the power is more and delivers maximum power to the shots.

One specific disadvantage it that this racquet is not recommended for wrist players as the stiffness of the racket runs down to the handle, and this in turn will pull your wrist down much more than the other attacking racquets.

The Li-Ning Woods N90 will injure your wrist if you don’t practice caution.

The extreme weight distribution of the racket is also not one to be disregarded. After a few long rallies you can feel the acid build up in your arms and making the next shot that little bit harder. By the end of the session, you’ll notice a loss in shot power and distance.

The N90 racquet has enormous control and a high level of precision that is very much desirable can dictate the pace of the game.

Alternative clears, drop shots, pushes and  were all very well-executed as I used all four corners of the court to my whim. The Li-Ning N90 accords me a level of control comparable to my even balanced rackets like the Yonex ArcSaber.

One thing to notice is that while playing backhands, the stiffness of the racquet works against you here requiring almost perfect technique to execute.

This racquet works extremely well for pushes to the corner after the defensive game and turning the game to a offensive one with a block.

The N90 is with a simple design. The paint work is definitely not tactical to its potential.

The N90 can take down its user as fast as it worries its opponents!

BENGALURU: Tommy Sugiarto, the World no 11 from Indonesia was the hero for the Delhi Acers as he led his side to the final clash of the Premier Badminton League (PBL) with his 15-11, 15-10 win over Chennai Smashers’ Brice Leverdez in the trump match, here on Thursday.

The scores were level 2-2 when Sugiarto took the courts and courtesy his win, Delhi edged Chennai 3-2 in the semifinals.

In the first game, Sugiarto was leading 10-5 at one stage but Brice managed to reduce the margin to 11-13. However, he could not match the agility and skillful movements of Sugiarto.

In the enthralling second game, Sugiarto kept the nerves at the end prompting Brice to commit two crucial errors, which saw Delhi clinching the tie and entering for the title clash.

India’s star women’s shuttler P. V. Sindhu kept the hopes of Chennai alive to qualify into the final by thrashing P. C. Thulasi in the trump match 15-6, 15-7, which gave Chennai overall 3-2 points lead.

Down 0-2 in the tie, it was the Chennai mixed pair, Chris Adcock and Pia Zebadiah beat Gabrielle Adcock and Koo Keat Kien 15-9, 15- 14 of Delhi Acers to keep the hopes of Chennai alive.

Sindhu picked the first game of the fourth match quite easily over Thulasi, who failed to repeat her own performance from Wednesday night when she had denied Mumbai Rockets’ trump match.

Sindhu was making her best as she used her height to her advantage, making Thulasi clueless of her movements in the court and variety of stroke-plays she had in the store.

In men’s doubles, Koo Keat Kien and Tan Boon Heong of Delhi Acers clinched a thrilling encounter 15-10, 15-14 over Chris Adcock and Pranav Chopra.

Heong wrapped up the match in a thrilling second game when he smashed straight into the chest of the Adcock, who could not return, with the game ending at 15-14.

In the men’s singles, Delhi’s Ajay Jayaram came the better of Sony Dwi Kuncoro 14-15, 15-10, 15-7, giving an overall 2-0 lead in two matches of the tie. However, Jayaram lost the first game in a close fight, but trounced Kuncoro in the next two games, rather convincingly.

The match was not less entertaining than the first. The fans enjoyed the first game with the battle going down the wire with Sony wrapping up the game smashing to the right of Jayaram who struggled to reach to the shuttle.

The Chennai star did well to keep the match in the team’s kitty, especially after Jayaram was 6-8, two points behind Sony at the interval.
Sony however lost the second game as some casualness crept into his play, helping Jayaram to speed away with 15-10 victory.

Jayaram exploited the casual approach of Sony and played to his advantage by taking an early 8-2 lead at interval and continued with the tempo, claiming the decider with a margin of eight points, a clear reflection how Kuncoro lost the plot after winning the first game.

HYDERABAD: Mumbai Rockets stormed into the final with an emphatic 3-0 win in the second semi-finals of the Premier Badminton League (PBL) at the Gachibowli indoor stadium on Friday.

The Mumbai side would now take on the Delhi Acers in the summit clash at the Siri Forts Sports Complex in the Capital on Sunday.

Mumbai won the Men’s Singles, Men’s Doubles and also the Women’s Singles, in which Saina played for Awadhe, to bag four points. Awadhe got one point with its win in the Mixed Doubles, but with World No. 2 Saina Nehwal suffered a crushing defeat in Awadhe Warriors’ Trump match the last match of the tie, second Men’s Singles, which was the Trump match of Mumbai, was abandoned.

It was Mumbai’s Han Li from China who pulled off the sensational 15-8, 13-15 and 15-7 victory over Saina who is currently ranked world no. 2 in Women’s Singles.

Saina lost the first game 8-15 to Han Li but the Indian managed to win the second game 15-13 after a hard-fought battle. In the decider, Han Li sensed Saina was not able to move properly, capitalized on it and won the third game and the match against saina.

In the mixed doubles match, Awadhe’s Bodin Issara and Christinna Pedersen pair beat Kamilla Juhl and Vladimir Ivanov of Mumbai 12-15, 15-13 and 15-14 in a close battle with both sides trying to outsmart each other.

After winning the match, Prannoy said: “A good win for my team after losing the first match. I had an unfortunate start and lost the first game. However, with my team’s support and motivation, I came back strongly with better strategies.

“Tanongsak is very good player and challenged me many times in the match today and which I enjoyed. I just played my attacking game and reduced my errors. Happy to level the scores for my team.”

Mumbai’s Mathias Boe and Ivanov defeated Awadhe’s Bodin and Cai in the Men’s Doubles 15-10, 12-15 and 15-13. The Men’s Doubles was also a close match with both sides leaving no stones unturned to take an advantage. The Mumbai pair, however, prevailed over their rivals in the end.

With each team winning one game each, the third game was a close contest. Though Awadhe took an early lead, but the Mumbai players fought back steadily, but Awadhe took the credit in the end.

HYDERABAD: Saina Nehwal, the world no .2 and icon player of Awadhe Warriors lost her trump match and handed over a 3-0 victory to Mumbai Rockets in the semifinals of Premier Badminton League at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium here on Friday.

Needing a victory to keep her team in the contest, Saina failed to come to the party as she lost to Han Li 8-15, 15-13, 15-7 in the fourth match of the semifinals when Awadhe were trailing 1-2.

At this juncture, Saina stepped in to play the trump match to secure two points for her team but, however, found the going tough against the Chinese shuttler.

Sensing that Saina is struggling with her movement, Li sprayed the bird all over the court. Saina struggled to control the pace of the game and even her drops landed into the net. It was disconcerting to watch the champion shuttler gasping for breath on a few occasions, particularly in the third game.

With Saina’s loss Mumbai were not required to play their trump match.

Earlier, mixed doubles pair of Bodin Issara and Christinna Pedersen gave a good start to Awadhe by winning a closely-contested three-game encounter against Vladimir Ivanov and Kamilla Juhl 12-15, 15-13, 15-14. In the contest that went down to the wire, Ivanov played brilliantly right throughout the contest but all the good work was lost in the end as he hit the bird long to concede the winner at 14-14 in the decider.

Men’s singles shuttler H.S. Prannoy brought Mumbai back into the contest. The world No. 33 made a splendid recovery after losing the first game to beat Tananongsak Saensomboonsuk 12-15, 15-7, 15-9.

Mumbai Rockets will face Delhi Acers in the final on Sunday.

Results (2nd Semi Finals):
Mumbai bt Awadhe 4-0: Kamilla Juhl and Ivanov lost to Bodin Issara and Pedersen 15-12, 13-15, 14-15; H.S. Prannoy bt Tanongsak 12-15, 15-7, 15-9; Mathias Boe and Ivanov bt Bodin and Cai Yun 15-10, 12-15, 15-13; Han Li bt Saina Nehwal 15-8, 13-15, 15-7.

With China Struggling, Saina, Sindhu Can Win At Rio: Boe’s Angle

NEW DELHI: Mathias Boe of Denmark, a silver-medallist at the London Olympics 2012 feels India’s Saina Nehwal and P.V. Sindhu can clinch medals at the Rio Olympics this year as China’s dominance in world badminton, especially in women’s singles, seems to be ending.

“If you look at the last few tournaments they are not as good as they used to be but may be they tried something different, I don’t know. We will know that better after the Olympics. If they can get all five gold medals we can’t say so. But it seems they are not as dominant now,” Boe, who is in India to play for Mumbai Rockets at the Premier Badminton League (PBL), said.

“Like in Ladies single, they always had the best in the top 4 in the world but now they have just one. In men’s singles they have Chen Long, he is the best, they have the best mixed and ladies doubles. However, I would say they have struggled a bit especially in ladies singles where they have always dominated. They seem a little old but let’s not rule them out because that would be a mistake,” he added.

Talking about India’s chances at the Olympics, Boe said: “I think Saina and Sindhu will have a chance. They are among the top-10 players of the world. Saina is in top-four, and both these girls have been at the highest level. So they can do that in Olympics. If they can handle pressure then definitely I don’t see why they can’t get a gold medal for India.”

“We have few big tournaments which is always fun to win. All England is one of the most prestigious tournaments apart from World Championship and Olympics. We have been fortunate to win it twice and to win it three times will be great as there are not many player to do so,” said Boe, who won the silver medal at the 2006 European Championships with Mogensen.

“Also there is Malaysia Open which we have never won, and India Open which we have won once but every time we go on court we want to win. So that is what we are aiming for,” added the left-handed shuttler, who helped Mumbai Rockets reach the finals by beating Awadhe Warriors 3-0 in the semifinals last night.

One half of the World No. 4 pair, Boe said they are looking forward to the opportunity of becoming the only doubles pair to win two Olympics medals at Rio Games.

“We know we can win Olympics. It is bigger than other events. Whoever can handle pressure best and if we can play our best it will be good enough. I am looking forward to the next few tournaments and qualify for Rio and have another shot at glory,” he said.

“Olympics come every four year. It is the biggest goal, biggest dream for any badminton player and we are no exception. We already have a silver at Olympics and if we can win another medal then we will be the only pair to have two medal and that will be remarkable,” he added.

Asked about his opinion on why India have not been able to produce quality doubles players, Boe said, “I think a lot of glory and what they have achieved is due to (Pullela) Gopichand’s work. He used to be a singles players and his expertise lies in singles.

“So when he started coaching he preferred to coach singles players and it is a normal development. He had to start somewhere and India have done well in singles and now you have some young doubles players doing well in u-19.

“It will come with time. You already have Manu and Sumeeth who won in Mexico, so India is on the right track. It takes years to develop quality doubles player,” he added.

Talking about his stint at the Premier Badminton League, Boe said: “It is more structure this year. Not as much as in Europe but overall another good experience. Last few days have been hectic with three days of illness and a lot of travelling. We just have to get things together and get ready for tomorrow.”

Boe hoped PBL will inspire youngsters to take up the game. “People who are watching us at court or TV, will inspire youngsters to take up the game. I hope with time it will generate good players. Lot of academies is building up. There are many opportunity for young shuttlers in India.”

Boe has already won the All England twice and said he aims to have another shot at glory at the prestigious event in Birmingham in March.
