    Rightly so ZN finishes her carreer with an olympic final.......well deserved....I thought she was going to struggle, but she upped her game at crucial moment.

    Criticism of Maria is she didn't spot ZN push in either game. She matched her right up to last stages, and must knwo ZN would see the finish line and sprint, but did nothing...that is not good.

    How gracious in defeat...and quite right too.

    She is a role model for everyone. Maria will get her chance in London....I will watch her!

    next match, LJJ/HJM vs CY/FHF!

    this will be a interesting match, I predict CY/FHF will win in 3 sets.

    but i hope LJJ/HJM would win

    Zhang Ning did it again. she became the player to eliminate the foreign threat. last time it was Mia, this time Maria.

    a very determined Zhang Ning never let of a single rally to beat a calm Maria Kristin. Maria played her game well but came short with higher error rate than usual probably due to higher pace that ZN set compared to previous opponents. her trying to tire out ZN using long rallies to every corner didn't capitalize. ZN was determine to run to the ground to save every shot. and credit to ZN she did.
