    Soo many errors from Kam/Son.
    What are they thinking lifting the shots so low?

    It's only in the last two years that we get a few WS playing musical chairs to have a brief spell of dominance, Marin is not the only one, there's also Intanon Ratchanok, Nozomi Okuhara now Tai Tzu Ying, each lasting only a few months. Let's see how long TTY can stay at the top.

    As it is, TTY was almost beaten by the young unheralded Chen Yufei yesterday. Time will tell how good TTY really is, it's possible she's the one to rule longer than we expected. We'll see.

    But when Li Xuerui ruled the circuit, she was indeed dominant; overrated she is not, the facts are there. What's the H2H of most of these WS today vis-a-vis LXR ?

    You're absolutely right, a very fair and objective statement. Hats off to you.

    Kam/Son's worst performance yet. I have lost count on how much did they keep hitting the bloody net.
    Back to square one for them.

    This INA MD pair, Gideon/Sukamuljo, are the most in-form at the moment. I expect them to take the title tomorrow.

    The Japanese pair tried their hardest but their skill level is just a whole level below the Indonesian pair.

    All they have is fitness and speed.

    Lee vs Lin is not the main event? I don't know how MD is better than MS at this point.
    Come on, this is the dream final, Lee vs Lin.
    They can't even put it in the right place?

    During her time, there were no formidable opponents except RI and she couldn't beat RI in the final of the WC in her own turf.

    What a deadly serve the Gideon's got !! I think it's what other pair should learn (as INA's coach kept saying to Gideon to always maintain his good serve). And Kevin has such ' a special skill' as well. This what makes them different.

    The two INA Ahoks will win 2morro. Noticed yesterday that they are very fair, fairer than their Chinese opponents.

    Li/Liu should have won if they didn't screw up badly. Mentally weak.
    LOL at your Ahoks
