Zhang Nan has found a new partner to take the place of Zhao Yunlei. Even if not as a partner for his personal life, surely someone to accompany and give him a hand on court.
We saw a very sweet and heart warming sight on court in yesterday’s final at the Thaihot China Open. While Zhang Nan was trying to change his his wet shirt during the mid game interval, it got stuck for some mysterious reason. Like a small baby! However, his partner Li Yinhui quickly came to Zhang Nan’s rescue. Li Yinhui played in two finals yesterday – Mixed doubles and womens doubles. Quite a wonderful thing to see for the youngster.
We are sure Zhang Yunlei must be kicking herself see this, or feeling a little jealous at least. Zhang and his long time love Zhao Yunlei broke up after the Rio Olympics. Zhao Yunlei made it public on her personal Weibo account.
While Zhang Nan has decided to continue playing competitively, Zhao Yunlei has retired putting an end to her illustrious career. Zhao Yunlei is 4 years older than Zhang nan, it must be noted. She is currently studying sports education and has announced that she wishes to become a goodwill ambassador for badminton.
