    It's okay. China fans can rejoice in XD and WD gold - that was guaranteed even before the tournament started. Unfortunately it's probably the most boring disciplines too.

    Oh my. I simply didn't see your post - you know these threads are busy.

    Concerning the ongoing XD match - anyone here who thinks the Thai pair will be able to turn that around? Or are we all convinced that Zhang/Zhao will secure yet another medal? :D

    I feel that you've to take into account that Tai TY started the 3rd set badly losing a streak of 7 pts, that indicated to me she was unable to put the narrow 2nd game defeat completely out of her mind,regather her thoughts and regroup for the decider. Then when the gap widened to 11-2, the match was virtually out of her reach despite her effort to reduce the deficit to 10-13 as the damage was already done.

    Marin in badminton is basically doing what Li Na has done in tennis. Impressive.

    Don't get me wrong, I wasn't saying that Tai TY should have beaten C Marin, just that I'd expect the score to be closer whoever won it in the end.

    Many players make a noise after winning points, Marin's is just a little louder/ harsher. Im used to it now so it doesn't phase me, much like Sharapova/ Azarenka in Tennis. I'm delighted for her victory today and think she can push Sindhu very close.

    One thing with TYT, i don't understand why she alternates between forehand and backhand serve. Her backhand serve will be short 100% of the time, i'm yet to see her vary it. With her forehand she can do a long or short serve. Kirsty Gilmour is the same, and other players i'm sure but I don't understand it.

    Oh please umpire(s), there's no real need to hurry the players - we all want to see high quality matches and not some silly mistakes on serve and receive. In tennis, there is such a thing as the 25-second rule between points for ATP tours while Grand Slams implement the 20-second rule. Badminton can take a leaf from them. That's just my opinion.

    19-all, the INA pair is back with a chance to even things up.

    Well, very, very lucky Danes here imho.
    I mean they fighted and played good, but I feel sad for the Indonesians. They played better, but the inexperience along with a bad umpire cost them the match in the end...
    Still this was a promising pair. Hope to see more from them. Jordan, as well as Debby, are spectacular to watch if they play like they did in set 2 and 3.
    Ok, 3 Danes tomorrow.
    Anyway I´m disappointed by the crowd. Even when Danes played I didn´t hear the noise I would espect. And no applaus for good actions by opponents. When there are no Danes involved it is pretty quite :/

    Praveen/Debby so close to get medal. Too bad they do so many unforced errors today. However, this is a excellent pair to back up towi/lilyana compare the others.

    Praveen Jordan and Debby Susanto are very exciting to watch. I hope that I see more of them in the future even though they had back luck with the umpire. Also wondering what happened to the speed gun, would love to see what speeds Jordan is getting...from the sound of it - very very fast.

    Another official brought up to me the receiver fault call, and I took a look at it. My first look in regular speed, was the umpire made the right call.

    Praveen Jordan was moving his feet around before the service and still was when Joachim was in the motion of serving. His back foot is seen to have been lifted up and put back down (although it didn't seem like he was trying to jump the serve, but he was trying to find a position to place it). The foot seemed like it left the ground slightly and went back down.

    After watching the replay shown, it is more obvious that his back foot left the ground slightly.
