    Now guys, it's getting really serious... This Olympic must be a real curse to top seeds.

    It should be more than the pressure that the olympic have. The temperature or the location maybe?

    I don't think so.. all of them have been playing in different temperature. Greece is no different.. thats why i say.. the Olympic Spirit is haunting the top seeds

    LOL the Olympic gods are zapping all the badminton players?! Zeus himself is striking down the oh too proud badminton titans LOL~. Come on guys, have respect for these great players who are playing their hearts out to beat the popular "hopefuls". No excuses! Everyone, seeded or not, is playing under the same conditions and pressures! I truly hope this is a sign that badminton standards are being raised to top levels in many other countries. It's the only way badminton will grow in popularity world wide. Hats off to all the underdogs!!! :)
