    Didn't get to watch it. Please show me 720p quality, and not from YouTube hehe.

    Just put "probably" anyway. Have always said I'd leave if LCW won a major, without any "probably" attached. Always been safe hehe.

    That must be a devastating first game loss for the Koreans - losing a game like that.

    Wow, Ahsan/Setiawan 4 straight points to win first set, saving 2 set points? Classic!

    Yeah agree, a lot of error from both sides.
    The Koreans squandered the opportunity to close g1

    Wow, CTC lost to LD's conqueror. Perhaps NG Ka Long Angus didn't fluke it after all? Not easy to beat CTC either.

    Interestingly not a lot of hard smashes from the Koreans
    More drops and angle play, maybe not to feed the Indonesians power off the hard smashes and pull them out slightly out of position?

    Ahsan/Setiawan in Ahsan/Setiawan mode again finally. Hope they can win this tournament.

    RI vs NO tomorrow. Should be a cracker. I think NO will come out on top again.

    Indonesians won in two straight tight games.

    No seeded players left in MS. A rarity?

    More like refreshment.
    Only LCW can beat himself down now, which is small chance.
    Hoping Anthony vs LCW in finals though.

    Did not follow badminton for quite some times.. How could LCW have beaten the current world no.1 and reigning world champion twice in a row? And this time around it was on a 3 setter. I thought a 34 or 35 year (old man) couldn't have sustained the pace. What is wrong with Chen Long?

    A 33 year old man can do this? This is the pinnacle of hard work and determination. I have never seen CL so desperate to win it so that he can prove that China open was a fluke. CL produced his absolute best but to no avail. Lcw has shown that nothing is impossible. Rio is his to lose

    Knew you would not honour your words. This forum is just too good to leave.

    Cheung, nice and very clear sharp pictures. You have the best seat in the stadium. How was the feeling like when those smashes came thundering down?

    Just watched the end of the 2nd set of CL vs LCW match. Anyone who doesn't give credit to LCW are not really badminton fans - they are Chen Long (or basically "China") fans. LCW played extremely well to dig himself out from 13-18 and 17-19. Nothing much CL could have done. LCW was hitting the lines with his half smashes and drops. Nothing anyone could have done against that.
