Tweet The student of contemporary badminton could well draw a parallel for his beloved sport from tennis, where it has become difficult to nominate a Grand Slam major winner from outside the quartet of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, so comprehensively have these four fine players ruled the roost in recent times. Lee Chong Wei’s exit opens up door for competitors to go for the title. AFP Leverdez, who trailed the Malaysian ace in head-to-head career meetings, and had lost their most recent clash at the All England Super Series Premier in straight games, was full value for his success. The Frenchman would not have been flattered if he had won the match in straight games, for he held two match-points in the second game at and , but failed to convert them, the second one on a heart-stoppingly close unsuccessful line challenge. The man who ended second-best in the last four editions of the Worlds since was distinctly nervy in his demeanour, nowhere near as swift on his feet as he normally is, nor as powerful with his usually lethal smashes. Lee was also bothered by the strong cross-drift in the vast arena, in which five courts had been laid for the proceedings of the opening rounds of all five events. He repeatedly netted his overhead drops from the back court; but yet could have won if a line call that would have given him an lead in the decider had it not been overturned by Hawk-eye. From all, Leverdez did not lose another point as he played like a man possessed, to claim a five-point reel, and show Lee the door. The exit of the Malaysian, who turns 35 in October, meant that the chances of his winning a World Championship gold medal are receding nearly as fast as his hopes of netting an Olympic gold at Tokyo in , at the age of nearly It also meant that two-time reigning world champion, Chen Long of China, has one less prime contender to take care of, in his attempt to record a hat-trick of world titles.

There are specific things you should look for before you buy. The tension of the strings is a huge consideration when buying a badminton racket. Beginners should aim for 20 lbs. Another consideration is the material the frame is made of, and whether the frame is made of one piece or more than one. Aluminum tends to be the material of choice for less expensive rackets, while high-end rackets are made of graphite or carbon fiber.
The grip of the handle is also important. Towel grips are softer and provide better sweat absorption than synthetic grips, but they are also less hygienic. The weight of the racket is important too. Light rackets are maneuverable and easy to swing, but also offer less control than heavier rackets. People who want a lot of hitting power will probably want to opt for a heavier racket.

The FA rules were followed in the Princeton—Rutgers contest: Other colleges emulated this development, but all of these were converted to rugby by the mid s and would soon become famous as early bastions of American football.
The earliest examples of governance in the sport started in , when the American Football Association AFA was incarnated. For the first dozen years, clubs from New Jersey and Massachusetts dominated the competition. It would not be until that a club from outside those two states won the American Cup.
