    Lin Dan only injects pace when absolutely necessary, sparingly nowadays.

    True, Lin Dan cares about winning here, but still not enough to bring out his A game.

    Tommy is pounding on every predictable lift from LD as far as possible.

    Tommy is wary of lifting, have to watch out for Lin Dan's lightning smash.

    Nothing serious.
    But I have seen more than once. Ofc I don't what he is saying to the umpire, but he points towards his opponents and for me it seems obvious that he emphasizes again what the umpire has just said/warned the opponents for...
    No need to do this

    Tommy.. Returns nicely to the fight. Even if he loses.. This is still nice from him.

    LOL at the lady in the crowd telling Lin Dan to strip and give her his shirt ;)

    Cool,man,Lin Dan, just playing very much a rallying controlled game yet good enough to take out a player of Tommy's calibre. Salute you.

    Lin Dan showed his true colours winning 21-18 after being 14-18 down.

    No, not yet showing his true colours, only some, a little bit.

    To me that only emphasise the Indonesian MD attitude problem even more.

    I'm afraid it's too late for Zhang Nan to pull out of the running for Rio, as that will most certainly affect his eminent partner,Fu Haifeng, who is gunning for his last and final shot at the Olympics. There's no choice for Zhang Nan but to work extra hard and stay highly motivated all the way to Rio.
