    Tai TY often loses focus when things aren't going her way or when she is under tremendous pressure in a hard-fought match. I think as she matures she will learn how to handle the situation better.

    Wow, just when Boe and Mogensen start to ease up on their 'dirty' tricks and tactics, up steps Carolina Marin and takes their position as most unpleasant player to watch (in my opinion, of course). Not that she plays dirty but all that screaming around is incredibly annoying. If I were in that arena, I'd rather spend my time listening to music and dozing off than watching that. Holy hell, I applaud Morten for his calm manner in mentioning those screams.
    That being said, CM playing that well is quite good for Spanish, and by extension, European badminton.

    Tired but losing her way in constructing the rallies.

    Clears by TY are too short.

    Marin is impressive. She will make the final. Li Xuerui may get a run for her money.

    sad to see TTY losing....but anyhow...whoever loses will be in a similar situation, losing in the QF for the second time in a row. Marin went one step better this time, great for badminton as an international sport.

    Not surprised that Marin crushed Wang Yihan yesterday - she is playing at another level now. Only Li Xuerui at her best can take her out now. Morten Frost commented that it was Marin's play that won it against Wang Yihan, and not Wang Yihan's poor play.

    Really impressive performance by this Spanish girl. With a luck of circumtances and Marin's determination, it's possible she can steal the gold for LXR. However, she must get pass of Shindu first.

    I think it's quite normal that the player who won the 1st game then narrowly lost or failed to win the second often allowed the incident to affect their mentality negatively whereas conversely the opponent who escaped defeat would feel relieved and go on to play more freely, and perhaps more motivated, in the 3rd. I supposed that's what happened in the Tai TY - C Marin match; otherwise I'd expect a tighter score as they were evenly matched as evident in the first two sets.

    Personally I believe CM played herself into the match, her attack got better and better....in the first game, TTY basically only had to keep her at the base line while that was no longer an option in the third, as the attack had gotten too penetrating. TTY would've had to step up her game as well to keep CM off balance, and it seems like she wasn't able to do that....

    Morten Frost already admitted he merely glanced at the WYH -CM match from the corner of his eyes briefly while commentating on another ongoing match and yet he could jump to that conclusion without bothering to watch the match in its entirety, at least the replay later . I wouldn't expect a man of his standing and life experience to let his emotion get the better of him in making hasty judgements which incidentally wasn't the first time he had done so.
