16-13 CHN gets 1 pt back....
17-13 to INA....
17-14 ina ....
18-14 INA closing in....
19-14 ina .....
Can't see China coming back. 4 points to make up is like climbing a mountain against HS
20-14, 6 MP to INA....
21-15 Match to INA, the MD title winner.
After the mid-game interval, suddenly CHN MD loses a string of easy points in double quick time and couldn't recover from it.
I saw Porntip did that a couple of times.
Finally, another HKG SS title for Hendra Setiawan after his victory with Markis Kido in 2007 (7 years ago). I was there then (with Hau-Ge) to witness their impressive wins over Fu/Cai (in SF) and then over Tony/Candra in the Final. We even celebrated Kido/Hendra and Nova/Butet's victories with an excellent dinner, together with the INA players and coaches. That was indeed a memorable occasion!
So, 3rd title of the year for Hendra Setiawan/Mohd Ahsan, after their more important victories at the All-England and Asian Games Individual Event. They also managed to avenge their two losses to Liu/Qiu. Can they retain their BWF SS Finals title in Dubai this year?
The finalized MD line-up for Dubai will be (correct me if I am wrong):
KOR - Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong and Ko Sung Hyun/Shin Baek Cheol
CHN - Liu Xiaolong/Qiu Zihan and either Chai Biao/Hong Wei or Fu Haifeng/Zhang Nan (Chai/Hong are ranked higher though)
INA - Hendra Setiawan/Mohd Ahsan
TPE - Tsai Chia-Hsin/Lee Sheng-Mu
DEN - Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen
JPN - Hiroyuki Endo/Kenichi Hayakawa
CL suddenly seem to have too much of competition! My winner prediction during round 1 was CL or SHW. Was a bit biased towards CL, but glad that SHW made it.
I wonder if SWH's ranking will climb up a little? I hope so
There comes the poor old Wendy again. I couldn't see any quality of being a good interviewer from her. She should have retired from the scene decades ago.
Did you hear what Wendy asked Zhang Nan/Zhao YL?
Wendy: "You have beaten Xu/Ma so many times. What advice would you give them?"
Zhang Nan was stunned and felt embarrassed!!!
then what ZYL answered to her?
a diplomatic answer: "We were just lucky."
I think ZYL will climb political ladder in no time.
Ouch! Can't HKBA find a better interviewer and translator?
