    I presume when you say "really mixed" you are reffering to the size of Lee hj!!

    She is huge, I think she must be almost the same as Kim, not more than 3cm shorter! She will be very strong once she is more experienced, and consistent.

    I completley misunderstood you, I thought you were inferring she was like a man, as she was so big and strong, and the rest were "real" mixed.

    Never mind, Embarassed now. :( sorry. Half asleep.

    Kim HJ is 179cm.
    Kim YH couldn't receive shuttlecock because she screened the front. :D :D
    She is as tall as KYH.
    And, it is not important, but KYH was married last winter.
    Kim Dong Moon and Ra Kyung Min are not lovers. but, I hope they will be a pair of lovers in the future. Both of them don't have a lover now. I heard peaple propose that they are a pair of lovers. :p

    I'm only half surprised, the Thais form a very good pair!! :cool:

    Note that the four semi-finalists are from four different countries, that's good for the game! :)
    The draw also seems very open without the two top pairs...

    Lin Dan, same as last match, gave up first game and took 2/3rd game. i wonder if he used the same exhaustion tactic against Gade?

    Park Tae Sang bt Chen Hong 15-11 10-15 15-10, he seems on great form!! :)

    and with this result he should probably make it for the olympics too!

    Chen Hong is some what strange sometimes. last week he made all the way to the Korean finals. now he loses to a not very heraded Korean player.

    perhaps Li should think again whom the Athens candidates should be.

    btw, Li says Xia was missing some fighting spirit in his losing match against Gade. Li says Xia's skill is comparable to Gade, just like his skill is comparable to Wong. he beat Wong in the WC because of his fighting spirit. Li says Xia was missing that yesterday and thus lost to Gade.

    I agree.. Xia had an upperhand over Wong CH in terms of confidence. I think once wong beat him fair and square again.. Xia will not feel that way again.
    Chen Hong.. up and down.. nowadays he is not as consistent as before.
    Li Yongbo will have hard time choosing players now.

    indeed, inconsistency dsnt seem to be the problem of the msian players only, nw the chinese are infected :) look at Chen Hong, or Xia (ok ok, maybe he is stil recuperating), Chen Yu and most, Bao CL... Bao made it to the Swiss Open final, thn knocked out in early stages of AE and KO, and nw, md it to the semis... tht includes the women shuttlers (Zhou Mi, Xie XF)...

    yup. definitely don't want to be in Li's shoes.

    WS pretty much decided. Xie hasn't shown much result so the choice is clear.

    MS still big headache. well, we will find out in a few months.
