    Strange, Lee Yongdae the super MD player just cannot win at the majors, same fate as Lee CW except that LYD doesn't have a particular nemesis, simply no affinity with the big titles.

    Hendra Setiawan proves once again to be the best in major/multi-sport event, Beijing OG 2008, Guangzhou AG 2010 and Incheon AG 2014 with different partner. INA pair eliminated nervousness and delivered all out to beat their nemesis Lee YD/Yoo YS at their homeground, perfect! MD final is the most thrilling final match in individual event so far.

    XD semifinals had contrast fashion when ZZ fought hard to overcome thunderous INA #2 pair while Ahmad/Natsir applied brilliant tactic to outclass Xu/Ma and finished the match in short duration.

    MS, Lin Dan v Lee CW, only game 1 presented tight contest, let alone game 2 which LD produced many uncharacteristic errors at the net and decider when Lee CW was already fatigue and couldn't balance LD aggressive style. The other semifinal obviously was lopsided match, Chen Long overwhelmingly controlled whole match.

    WS, Wang YH redeemed her 2012 London OG losing to her younger compatriot. At game 2, when Li XR scored 6-1 then Wang YH slowly closed the gap even lead at interval, this was the turning point for Yihan triumphant.

    I just say I don´t really enjoy their style... As well as I didn´t enjoy Boe/Mogensen before.
    It is not disrespect. I play myself (well not professional, but advanced) and I really know how good they are. And I abolutly admit they are the best in serve, return, third shot (lee/yoo coming very close). They also attack good and fast. It is part of the game. They have specialised in these departments. They deserved this title and every other title they won.

    BUT I want to see spectacular, entertaining rallies in MD. Attack, defense, counterattack, some dives :D That´s what Badminton is for me.
    And we rarely see many of these rallies when pairs like Ahsan/Setiawan or BoMo are playing. Just compare the playing time of the matches...

    Indonesia suporters are louder than others. they can cheer as loud as the home crowd in almost any country.

    so it's still 2 vs 2

    Well, I just expressed my feeling about your previous comment. It's okay then, I got your point. I also noticed how short Ahsan/Setiawan rally compare to some players. When others still use smash and net game to set up the rally, these two use almost every shots as their deadly weapon. I think it's part of the game nowadays. You can say that to tennis when Cilic beat Federer and won US Open 2014, how can you say that 'raw game power' is tennis? But it is the game now. So yeah, I'll watch what I can watch. ;)

    This is great!

    Several months ago, LYD/YYS beat MA/HS in Indonesia Open this year before Jakarta's wild crowd.

    Now MA/HS beat LYS/YYS in Asian Games (a multi-sport event, second to Olympic, which is held every four years) before the Incheon's spectators.

    This revenge feels sweet!

    Greysia Polli or Vita Marissa, the maestro. Does this mean that Vita Marissa is coming back to PBSI?

    This looked like headmaster disciplining the student.
    Wow, so embarrassing. No other better place?
    How come they allowed the people to take photos.
    Tough being a CHN player.

    Yes you are right... YYS/LYD are Super Series regular. Their entrance to the circuit was so recent and already won SS back-to-back three times and more. They have become a regular in the final but they can't win the big one.

    Debby will be paired with Kevin Sanjaya then? He is very very agile, fast, and unbelievably has a thundering hard-smash. He can dive too like Praveen.
