    Obviously, GC and MF as well choose to conveniently forget things when it suits them. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Zhao Yunlei understands and speaks English to the umpire.

    Zhao Yunlei is just too good. She is just really really good, and she has the intensity, the killer instinct, the attitude of a champion.

    She is a champion.
    Reigning Women and Mixed Doubles Olympic Champion.
    Reigning Women and Mixed Doubles World Champion.

    That is a lot of reigning. :p

    Not everybody knows how to appreciate such a confident, self-assertive, capable woman. I do.

    I would like to hear her. Sorry if it sounds slightly harsh, but I particularly like the Chinese english ascent, after the Russian ascent. Nothing beats russian!

    When you're too nervous or tense, you dare not attack for fear of making mistakes, but for some people letting themselves go may be the way to overcome their nerves.

    Hawk eye is really useful to tackle line judges' wrong calls. Thus preventing them favouring their home nation.

    Liu Xin is playing lots of drop shots, no smashing, not a very good idea against Saina. Better to play a good variation of shots to keep Saina guessing.

    Are you accusing BWF of colluding with the home nation ?

    Where do they put the microphones?
    The sound from the player's racquet are rather loud.
