    Mixed doubles will be interesting. I wonder how the new (?) Chinese pair will react to the number 5th.

    Again Zhang Nan lost the game partner Fu Haifeng. I think Lee Yong bo should consider bring in Xu chen to the men's double team. Drop Zhang nan !

    G1 aside, both THW and VA are equally good and promising, future superstars, maybe.

    How THW gave away the match points was unbelievable, but even more incredible was how Viktor blew such a big lead when he was 11-5 up at one point. Can't help rooting for Viktor, though - we don't want this event to be another clean Chinese sweep, now do we. That's certainly not healthy for the sport. So, huge congrats to Viktor and hopefully this sets him up nicely in Copenhagen later in the year. I'm so sick of nothing but the LCW-CL-LD triumvirate.

    THW was actually holding 2 MP before finally losing the deuce, narrowly, that after he was trailing most of the time in G3. I suspect he became nervous or impatient or too eager to win or slackened a little when so near to victory - just saying.

    The Adcocks are now more efficient at scoring points than their opponents.

    Interesting....Chinese players sponsored by bang and olufsen play. More and more luxury brands willing to sponsor badminton players.

    From the looks of it, I do not see CB/TJH recovering against the Adcocks.

    The adcocks are playing too well. Chris is a real tricky player. Still a very interesting match. Players really enjoying themselves.

    Please no more CB in mixed, it is embarrassing watching him play.... what use is a big smash when u can only get in position 20% of the time to smash in the whole game?

    The Adcocks passed the test, I guess CB/TJH need more experience.

    CB/TJH are just too tired, especially CB. Not to say that they are all that good but this match does not say much other than that their conditioning is not good enough for them to play in two events.

    The English pair did play very well. All credits to them.
