    Quite aptly used as the Japanese deserve another mention and we hope their second wind will chime or charm again. ;)

    To me, I find WSX one of the most beautiful players to watch on court, the way she moves and executes her shots - it's poetry in motion. All those shrieking is just peculiar to certain players just like Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka, just to name two in tennis.

    If IND had a better WD1 player and a comparative weak WS2 who rose to occassion like how Indian WD1 were doing you might have attributed the same thing to the ordering of matches and would have liked WS2 to be played before..... WD1
    :) Order as it suits you? IMO the ordering shouldnt be allowed to change unless satisfactory reasons for the bwf and the singles pairing up to play doubles is a reason well enough for to allow it. It gives even chances to both the teams.

    With that kind of players you shall always win the tie from your 3 singles, no matter the order.

    The irony is that although China is out of the Thomas Cup final, the final would still be between the Japanese and the Chinese.

    Correct. The ordering never changes except when a player is playing in both in singles and doubles.

    another one is Bae Yeon Ju, I don't like the way she shouts at her opponent. It is very irritating.

    Why are chinese players so vulnerable to getting panicky when the pressure is on as in the ladies doubles being played now. One of the reasons is as Morten Frost said, that the chinese coaches don't seem to take out the weak skilled players in a doubles combination. Tang Jin Hua is a reaction player and when the going gets tough she doesnt know what to do. She may have a strong smash but thats all. So the confidence level in the combination collapses. And most of the opposing teams are aware that she is the weak link.

    I was praying so hard for Mitani today, I was afraid LXR will eat her. Rarely see LXR acting+shouting like that, I prefer the calm LXR than the aggressive one today.

    The CHN men should have played CL, LD, LD or CL, CL, LD. Isn't the organizer always rearrange the order to give player more rest? Then it play MS2 first and MS3 last.
