What an interesting World championships. I wasn't able to go this year as had a lot going on at home. I however caught the matches on the BBC website and on Youtube. The finals were brilliant, first up the WD, A great back and forth tussle between the chinese and japanese girls. The experience of the chinese just about edged it in the last game. Then my favourite match of the finals, the WS. Okuhara played awesome to overcome Sindhu whom I thought was the favourite going into the final. That last point in the second game, where both players left everything on the court was sublime to watch. True determination and fitness shown by both players. Being Indian, I would have loved Sindhu to have won the gold but a silver and also a bronze (Saina) for the indian girls is not bad at all Then the MS, I really thought Lin Dan would break the record but Viktor had other ideas. He was consistent all tournament and played the tense points really well. To close Lin Dan out in 2 games is a class act. I really like Viktor, one of my favourite players to watch and with Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei on the twilight of their careers, I really wish Viktor is the No.1 force to be reckoned with in the future. I like his temperament, his hard work and also he deserved this title. I will be keen to see his progress in the future. The MD was a one sided affair and went to the seeded pair. Ahsan having a new partner showed and the chinese used their experience to shut out their opponents easily. The final XD match was great to finish the tournament. Its like Dejavu. How many times do we see Ahmad/Natsir come from behind and close out important matches. A great spectacle and I for one enjoyed it. Overall, a good showcase for the sport and I cannot wait to the All Englands next year, I will be there for sure!!! Kindest regards, -Ajay- Quote of the Day Some people never go crazy.
