    Just being cautious doesn't mean I lack faith in her. To be honest, your chances of winning the bet is at least 80%.
    You spoke my mind. How often do we see that happening to Lin Dan or Lee CW, losing a good 5 pt or more lead and even allowing their opponents to overtake them? Rarely, hardly ever. That's the height I wish to see LXR attained one day, the sooner the better.

    If it happens often enough that means it is her style of play or in her blood. The end result is her winning the match, a few bumps along the way is normal. Beside, nothing is quaranteed in life, if LXR doesn't make mistake, no body is going to get more than 10 points from her. Then there is no fun.

    Admittedly, it's a bit hard to say Intanon R is the best non-CHN player. Ever since she unexpectedly won the WC'13 which ,to me, is more owing to LXR choking under pressure than IR outplaying her, she has failed repeatedly to live up to expectations, even losing to players we'd expect her to beat and until today she's still unable to clinch a single SS title.

    On the other hand, LXR, since her LOG gold medal triumph which according to BWF is equivalent to winning the World Championship, has continued to consistently deliver stellar results to this very day and is undoubtedly regarded as the true world no.1, comprehensively living up to her foremost world ranking.

    So the question is for the ROW if Intanon R is not the best, then who deserves to be ? Frankly, I can't think of anyone whom most people would agree on. But based on untapped potential, I'm willing to concede that she could be the one as she is still only 19 yrs old and may make a successful comeback in future, who knows.

    Again, apart from IR, I think Akane Y's potential is huge too for the ROW.

    Well, you do make a valid and interesting point. To each his own then.

    It's very good that the organizer is putting 8 of the 10 SF matches on TV court, so most people will get to choose the one(s) they like to watch and not be disappointed. Well done, PBSI.

    I agree as well :) I also like that they've mixed up the order of singles and doubles matches unlike yesterday and today.

    you dunno?

    (I'm not in the mood to explain but shortly said..)
    He did what Zhang Nan did, not to mention the so called 'injury'. What a shame :(
    Simon didn't made a fuss about it doesn't mean it was Okay!

    Well, you better watch the match.

    Why don't we start a fan petition or something? Even I have noticed it often that LXR after taking some points suddenly goes passive (most often in the latter half of a game) and it often is visibly her that goes passive not the opponent who ups the pace.
    I am sure she must be aware of this (especially after the WC defeat).
    But I think it will be a good nice gesture, and something which she may remember if we can get some people to sign an online petition
    What say?
