Yup, what a way to finish the match, says GC, for Sung Ji Hyun.
jumpscare for CPS/GLY as they almost knock out by Rasmussen/Thygesen, luckily they prevent the QF exit and win through SF...
Ajay doing fine atm, coming back?
The Evergreen Lee Hyun Il is extraordinary...
Twice OG 4th place...lost the bronze to Chen Long in 2012 and Chen Jin 2008. Most unlucky player ever.
Ajay's racquet touches the net slightly ?
Ajay is remarkable too.
Who is that lady coach sitting to Ajay?
Looks like a player.
Yes. Tanvi Lad perhaps !
Lee HI barely squeezed out a win in G1, 25-23, both contestants displaying fine technique and persistence.
Both of them has same technique. But LHII is more elegant.
Ajay is out of energy already?. Instead of jump smash, he smashed into net without jumping.
Ageless LHII prevails again. Wow. Just wow.
Yes this guy Lee Hyun Il at such an old age is still very amazing. Winning his match convincingly. Wow. He is really the evergreen player ever.
Lee Hyun IL > All Korean MS players (Son Wan Ho, Jeon Hyeok Jin, Heo Kwang Hee, Lee Dong Keun, etc)
IMHO Ajay has the best court craft and touches among the Indian players.
The 3 young Chinese girls cannot beat the Japanese girls with skills and techniques alone. They need to improve on their stamina. The Japanese girls have great retrieving abilities and bags of energy. Is it genetics? I observe that Japanese girls are doing better than Chinese girls in long distance running, including marathon.
Hats off again to the 36-yr-old Lee Hyun Il for another masterful display. Yes, I fully agree with sonnymark, LHI beating JOJ is worthy of the highest praise.
Exactly, it's a special characteristic typical of JPN WS to have such extraordinary stamina as to enable them to keep running and running which also translates into remarkable court coverage and retrieving ability to outrun, outlast and in the end outplay most of their opponents who lack outstanding attacking and defending skills if they don't have sufficient good fitness to match.
