    I think he best pairs in the tourney should prevail to make the final interesting, not always CHN..

    China usually has the best players, but what you said makes sense though good example is in men's double, china needs to hire better coach for their men's doubles

    CHN's chief coach was a doubles player. Something must be wrong somewhere.

    It will be very interesting if there is any other country in the fray.

    Greysia Polii/Nitya Krishinda Maheswari delivered first gold medal for INA contingent in anti-climatic WD final to defeat top-seed JPN pair Matsutomo/Takahashi, 21-15 / 21-9. They performed excellent during this individual event, beat strong opponents like Cheng WH/Hsieh PC, Kakiiwa/Maeda and the biggest one was mulitiple major champion Tian Q/Zhao YL en route to finale. What an unpredictable outcome, well done and keep consistent in next tourneys :)

    The Government, PBSI and even the club will shower the players with brand new house, and bonus money. For gold it is defiinitely a brand new house and big money. They can be the MVP this year.

    Greysia Polii/Nitya, i'm so proud of you!!!

    the first gold in Women's Doubles after such a long time.

    wooohooo, Indonesia has the chance to sweep out the gold from Doubles Department, if everything according to the plan.

    Hendra/Ahsan is to avenge their 2 previous loss to YYS/LYD. This is going to be a mega final vs. the home country shuttlers in their own home like how Hendra/Kido won Beijing 2008 Olympic MD gold in China vs. FHY/CY. I believe Hendra has not won an Asian Gold Medal yet.

    I believe today's Lin Dan is a wee bit below the WC'13 LD and undeniably pales in comparison with the LD of Beijing'08 - London'12.

    So, not playing reverse psychology, I make bold to say this is once again LCW's best chance to beat Lin Dan tomorrow unless LD has other ideas and suddenly up his game for being motivated by his perpetual rival. Nevertheless, hope to see a sizzling battle between them.

    As for Chen Long, I truly wish he uses his brains more,learn to think on his feet and adjust his game according to his opponent and the demands of the situation, hopefully acquire the ability to play more intelligently like Sun Jun who specially trained him for the Copenhagen WC. If he continues to rely mainly on his raw power, agility and reach to play a plainly effective, straightforward but predictable textbook game, I'm afraid he would every now and then come across clever,persistent opponents who can give him a hard time or even beat him in crucial matches on the big occasions where he is also burdened with undue pressure to deliver. My humble opinion.
