    How come no one in the picture is using a Mac? :confused:
    Aren't they just perfect for the photo-journalist?

    more news.

    LYB is showing up in full force. he was attending almost all the matches. sometimes he sits on the stands, someone he sits on the coach's seat.

    here is one of him leaning over the rail talking to Zhong Bo.

    the stadium was jam packed today. during the evening session, where PG/LCW as well as LD/TH game, stadium was at full capacity. the atmosphere was awesome.

    Not sure if LYB was there but look at this!! China is serious about getting the gold medal. The talismanic coach is back!! Strangely enough, he's not in the stands where he likes to be.

    Tang Xian-hu's body language (note the arms crossed defensively) suggests he isn't too happy with the goings-on :rolleyes:
    I wonder if there's some dissent brewing within the camp :cool:

    Hey, that's me there...in the red shirt :eek:

    Yup, I saw Li Yongbo shouting instructions to BOTH Gao Ling and Zheng Bo in what was arguably the best match today in the XD between the Chinese pair and Sudket/Saralee. The Thai pair nearly got match-point when the score was at 19-19, but Sudket's return was called out when I and the other INA players sitting near the court clearly saw that the shot was IN :mad:

    this HK Open is very clean.

    the call was a close call, so we expect some genuine mistakes from the linejudges.

    and ironically, the Chinese team is doing better here in HK than they did in Guangzhou last week!

    it is sad to hear that a bad call occurred in this tight rubber game. It's a match decider call almost. I was rooting for thai's XD pair.

    Let me put it this way:
    Have you ever seen it happen the other way around? :cool:
    How come close Outs never get called In?
    Aren't they close calls as well?

    Of course, the idea is to help them win. :(
    If China isn't reined in on this despicable tactic, the game itself will be shamed :mad:

    What's immensely ironic is that it's the strongest team that resorts to the cheapest move.
