    everyone would consider his own reasons of certain acts (like WO to compatriots) are necessary and legitimate, and others unacceptable.

    in a sports forum, even you may not accept certain issue, it is no need to use prejudice, double standard or insulting languages to comment. We need civilization instead of not hyprocrite.

    The Luo twin sisters strongly resemble each other indeed; strangely, they were split recently, I thought, but now they are rejoined.

    The Luo sisters are ranked 200+ while their compatriots are un-ranked, yet both contesting a GPG WD title, remarkable.

    What a cracker of a match, the younger CHN WD pair, Huang/Jia, coming from behind to overtake and wrap up G1, 21- 19. from their older, more experienced sisters.

    Vita/Jordan win can be due to one of these :
    1. Vita is a better playmaker than Butet. She has better strategies even though she is older, this was a contest of strategies rather than stamina.

    2. In my opinion, Jordan is better than Towi. Towi has powerful smash but sometimes lack the variation. And Towi is impatient sometimes.

    Or could be both reasons.

    Now clearly at the moment Jordan/Vita is ahead of other INA XD pairs, except Towi/Butet. Going by head 2 head with the top 4 pairs.

    Virtually no way of telling the Luo twins apart with both wearing similar outfits with the words "Luo Y' at the back even when one of them wears a hair clip.

    Simon, cool as a cucumber steps onto court, hope his greater experience and maturity prevails over Rumbaka who has the advantage of youth and vitality.

    More or less agree with you except that I thought Vita and Butet are equally good, the difference today is the performance of Jordan is better than Tantowi, next time might be different. Yeah, Tantowi tends to be a bit too temperamental.

    So far Simon is in control and dictating the rallies but still better win the match in two sets, saw him breathing somewhat heavily earlier.

    Simon is still grounded by Rexy...if he wins then we will see him playing more tournaments.

    The ladies' doubles was very exciting even though it was an all-China finals. If only the 18-16 year old pair were wearing the T-shirts of, say, IND or INA this thread would have erupted with a lot of superlative praises for them. Personally I think, barring sickness and injuries, they will be able to take the the fight to any pair thrown at them in the WJC
    The girls singles looked liked a sparring session to me, but the body language of both of them suggested otherwise. Both, especially SD, look elegant in their playing skirts. How can I send a bouguet of flowers to her. LOL

    It is so funny to see some fans called themselves experts...they live in the dream world...so naive...criticize others also but at the same time, it hurts the images ...so laughable....

    Simon Santoso emerges the champion, outplaying the much younger rising INA star, Rumbaka.

    Please win, Simon, so that I can sleep in peace that the player I supported who was thrashed by U lost to the eventual winner, and no body will accuse him for going to Jogja for an outing just to visit the famous Borobodur ( not sure of the spelling) temple.

    Well said, the WD final was an entertaining and exciting affair worthy of praise. Congratulations to the Luo sisters and kudos to their junior compatriot opponents who certainly show a lot of promise.

    Yup, the two slender ladies singles look very nice in skorts.

    you know what is laughable? indonesian women players can't do jump smash. that's laughable.

    yes. women players from other countries can't do jump smash either. that's also laughable.

    do they have legs?
