17-19 now, make a supprise, SS!
I think you misunderstood. You could still win from the bad end. Just that it is more energy sapping to do it since it is a little harder to control clear from the bad end. If SS gets defeated with huge score, it probably suggests that he was not as fit as LD on that day or he just simply got outplayed. I don't think you could conclude on how one performance is based on their no. of 'smash winners' recorderd in TS.
20-17 for LD, any chance for Ss?
But LD got back into the lead again with another attack 20-17. Sinoraya (Siyonara)? SS!
Lin Dan  def. Sho Sasaki  21-16, 16-21, 21-17
He will face Du Pengyu  in the Semifinals.
LD still Super D!
Lu Lan def. Li Xuerui  26-24, 22-20
She will face Jiang Yanjiao  in the Semifinals.
Another upset from LL.
If BC overcome BP, so all China in SF,I am not supprice but really don't want to see this happen-happen and happen!
I assume the bad end to mean the draft is against LD favouring him in attack. SS has to be careful not to hit the bird too hard.
On Court 1, Porntip Buranaprasertsuk vs. Cheng Shao Chieh. CSC is ranked 15th in the world, while Porntip is ranked 16th. The head to head record is 1-1, with the most recent match won by Porntip at the 2011 Korea Open SSP (22-20, 21-15).
On Court 2, Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng  vs. Goh Wei Shem/Lim Khim Wah. The Chinese are ranked 4th in the world, while the Malaysians are ranked 142nd.
In the rubber, LD scored 9 smash winners against only 4 from SS. I suppose at the change-over, SS must have attacked more if the draft is against him.
On the other hand SS managed 8 net winners against 6 from LD.
So in the end, the attacker emerged on top.
With such a huge ranking and experience difference, it must be a foregone conclusion for many. It has to be "Tak Boleh" this time!
I have to encourage them, right?
The score is 20-20 right now.
But the Malaysians are doing very well forcing the Chinese to duece 20-20.
Yes we normally have a soft spot for the underdog.
So far they have exceeded all expectations already!
Wow, brilliant fighting spirit from the M'sians 22-22.
Oh dear, GWS/LKW lost the first game 22-24.
But alas, the Chinese won 24-22.
Let's hope the younger Msian pair can continue to mount their impressive attacks as in the first game.
So bitter, they fought so hard to get to 22-22....
