    Singaporean defence not as good as previous matches.

    A number of lucky net cords from Ashwini Ponnappa. India win 21-16 in game 1.

    Yep, she does have a pretty powerful smash. Wished the MAS girls could smash like that. :eek:
    Eventho Gutta is "hefty":D as madbad so kindly puts it, she is quite fast at controlliong the net.

    Yao Lei hasn't imposed herself in this match. I was expecting more from her.

    Amongst the four players on court? Or amongst all female Indian players?
    I thought Jwala had strongest smash!

    Singaporeans are not composed, too many cheap errors. But on the crosscourt attack, they are good.

    Amongst the 4 girls, Ponnappa has the hardest smash but weakest defence....and the prettiest.

    Ashwini is not that settled in the match either. Gutta, however, is in form and actually more willing to move than normal.
