    After dissapointin results in korea, Tommy and Hayom must be given real verbal spanking by their coaches. Not bad results as Hayom can also beat always unpredictable Mr Yoyo :)

    Not bad day overall for ina camp in day 1, especially in MS, Md and Xd...The only refreta came from Mel/ Greys who once show glimpses last week of their A performance but yet they are slump so easily to Koreans... Vita/Nadya also lost to Tpe pair in a revenge match...by the absence of Cai/Fu, JJS/LYD and Boe/Carsten it's time for Kido/Hendra and Bosan to rise the occasion.

    Indeed, a much better showing by Team INA. The report card shows 11/16. 2 expected losses in WS, another 1 expected loss in WD and XD respectively. But, I didn't expect Mel/Grace to lose :( The surprise was that all MS players advance to R16, including victories for the much criticized Hayom & Tommy.

    It will get harder today.

    About this match i really think the crowd was the most crucial asset to Jan O. Crowd were booing Du Pengyu and cheering Jan O as hard as the can. Pengyu just can't take it. Too psycho for him :p For appreciation, one lucky uncle grab Jan O's Racket. so luckyy.. Same goes to Hu Yun-Chen Jin match only hu yun seemed too tired to take advantage of Chen Jin's break down.

    In Malaysia, cheering priority :

    1) MAS players
    2) Non-CHN players ( If not against INA, cos INA supporters also substantial).

    i reach home at 1.30am yesterday
    was sooooooooo tired to watch 16 hours of badminton
    but i am very happy

    it was crowd 3-0 china
    we cheered bawa/neo,nguyen tm,jorgensen to beat hong wei/pan pan,wang zheng ming and du peng yu

    chen jin match almost have a same fate,but too bad the crowd want the match ended faster because its almost 11.30pm already,wasted

    i stayed back until lin dan match
    lin dan get teased and receive many :rolleyes: word from audience
    asking him when he want to walkover,retired,where u injured,hand pain,headache,got drink cold water or not
    lin dan is angry(老羞成怒),thats why he very focus and concentrate,if not,i think it will be another rubber set
    haha

    many excellent matches yesterday,realllllllllllll great
    enjoyed much but very tired

    i like how tee jing yi,chan/goh,vivian/hoo fight back!
    chow/lee and tan/lai played very well!

    the problem is,there is more than 15 service fault called on mas player

    I find this a little puzzling - why are the Malaysians which is a nation comprising mostly of Asians and about 25% Chinese not cheering for a fellow Chinese/Asian but jeering him so intensely instead. I mean that poor Du Pengyu is not even seeded, an underdog (somewhat) against a more experienced Jan O and he is given such an unfriendly reception. What's happening, guys? Is Malaysia a part of Europe? I mean I love both players and think they are a great inspiration to the game but surely this enmity and prejudice towards the Chinese team is a little overboard. Most (if not all) of the Chinese players come from very humble beginnings and have gone through a tremendous amount of suffering and sacrifices to get to where they are today and surely they do not deserve this kind of reception from the Malaysians.

    Yes, I am sure the Malaysian team or any other team for that matter would do the same (ie. give walkovers etc.) if they dominate the game as China do - so let's not be hypocritical. Badminton to a large extent is still a nation sport and that's also the beauty of it.

    BWF will be doomed if this becomes a reality.

    It's UNFORTUNATE that badminton is still a nation sport. And professionalism is something that badminton should aim for, not the other way round.

    I guess it is subjective - is extreme professionalism and commercialism the way to go and good for the future of badminton? I have seen that happened in soccer and tennis and can't say I like it a lot. I would still prefer to see a player being motivated for the nation than his love for more money. I reckon BWF's objective is to increase the popularity of the game and in the process hope to generate as much revenue as possible. So yes, BWF would probably be doomed if they do not generate sufficient funds to sustain their existence.
