    Today, this is what I felt during the match -

    I felt Sindhu was quite upset with yesterday's loss.
    And finally she brought out her top game against HBJ.

    And when she finally won she was very relieved.

    I'm being very frank. I think Sindhu was in 2019 WC form and had it been not the unbeatable Tai in her pathway, I'm saying this it would have been really tough for anyone to beat her. This Sindhu could only be stopped by unbeatable Tai, Marin and maybe CYF (I'm not sure).

    The play Tai showcased yesterday was nothing short of masterclass (after 18-18 first game, Tai shifted gear and there was no stopping back). Fast fwd 24 hrs, did she play the same game against Chen Yu Fei, absolutely not. Quite the contrary. I feel the Tai Tzu Ying we witnessed yesterday could not be stopped by anybody. Neither prime Sindhu nor CYF. As for Marin, I'm 80 percent sure she could not have stopped Tai. She was that good for me.

    In Paris Sindhu will be 29.

    I avoid these "greatest" topics since I think it's subjective.
    But IMO if Sindhu does manage to win a gold in Paris, she will be the GOAT in WS badminton..
    Just my opinion.(may be a little biased)

    I know it's a BIG if. And there are several other contenders like - Susi Susanti, Zhang Ning, Carolina Marin etc.

    I disagree.
    Tai is a great player, but she is certainly not unbeatable as some people in these BC forums claim.
    And she was definitely at her best against CYF.
    I watched the whole match.

    CYF did not allow TTY to play her game.
    Neither did Sindhu in Rio.

    To beat TTY you need a combination of good defence, good attack and a frantic pace.
    It is a rare combination, but TTY is definitely beatable.

    Do they ever get the money, or do they just promise this amount?
    I remember a few olympians including Saina complaining that they did not get the promised money even a year later.

    Previous domestic football league (I League) which was organized by AIFF (national football federation). One club Aizawl FC won it, they had to wait for 1.5 years , they didn't get the amount. So they wrote a letter to AIFF top brass demanding the amount be paid to them.

    In same case, Manu Bhaker when she won a big tournament either it was WC or YOG, so Haryana State Govt announced cash awards for her. After some months, she didn't get the amount. These two are the cases I know.

    Money must be going to the athletes but after a long time I feel. You know the red tapism and lethargic system here.

    Yesterday's Tai was given a lot of time to play her shots, hence her deception worked. Sindhu was playing great for the first half and drawing errors from her but she let Tai catch up and lost all her confidence from there on. Tai is susceptible to errors if matched with pace. It felt like Sindhu didn't played her attacking game yesterday. I didn't saw her full match against He Bing Jiao but what I gather by watching the highlights is she played a good attacking game, I am not necessarily saying attacking smashes.

    Tai's Facebook post:

    第三度踏上這個夢想中的舞台,終於闖進了決賽,但無法站在最高的頒獎台上,總是有那麼一點遺憾,但不完美總是存在著,才有動力去追求更好的結果。
    或許我不會再有一次參加奧運的機會,但這個目標我也算達成了,只是不這麼完美。
    我只想告訴自己:戴資穎,妳很棒!
    謝謝所有支持我的你們,結果總是很殘酷,也只能接受,但我盡力了。
    謝謝所有在這段期間給予我們幫忙的人,謝謝在日本的代表處,派了秘書在飯店幫我們處理各種問題。
    謝謝我的團隊們,在疫情期間一起不能回家,長時間的訓練。
    謝謝所有一切的一切[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    分享一個小故事,比完賽下來之後,我本來對自己的表現還算滿意,後來辛度跑過來抱著我,捧著我的臉,告訴我:我知道妳很難受,妳已經表現的很好,只是今天不是妳的局。
    然後把我擁在懷裡說:她都知道。
    那種真誠的鼓勵,害我直接爆哭…..
    真的太難過了,因為真的很努力了。
    再次感謝大家的支持與鼓勵。
    謝謝你們一起陪我走到現在。

    I stepped on this dream stage for the third time, and finally made it to the finals, but I couldn’t stand on the highest podium. There is always a little regret, but imperfections always exist, so I have the motivation to pursue better. result.
    Maybe I won't have another chance to participate in the Olympics, but I have achieved this goal, but it is not so perfect.
    I just want to tell myself: Dai Ziying, you are great!
    Thank you all for supporting me. The result is always cruel and I can only accept it, but I tried my best.
    Thank you to everyone who helped us during this period. Thank you to the representative office in Japan who sent a secretary in the hotel to help us with various issues.
    Thank you to my team. During the epidemic, we can't go home together and train for a long time.
    Thank you for everything ❤️❤️❤️
    Share a little story. After the match, I was satisfied with my performance. Later, Sindhu ran over to hold me, held my face, and told me: I know you are uncomfortable, and you have been very good. Okay, but today is not your game.
    Then he held me in his arms and said: She knows all about it.
    That kind of sincere encouragement made me cry directly...
    It's really sad because I really worked hard.

    Thank you again for your support and encouragement.
    Thank you for walking with me till now.


    Sindhu is such a sweet heart.

    I feel Sindhu wasn't allowed to play her usual game just coz Tai didn't let her. Her strategy and execution coupled with her confidence and error free game were the factors which make her run away with everything. Of course yes, lack of confidence was there in Sindhu but that happened just coz of the way Tai played.

    I'll say Sindhu didn't lose but Tai won.
