    She lost her temper !

    And she had a very evident weakness in her forehand front corner. Zhang Ning at least took 5 points by dropping it there over the match. Also, she did not catch Zhang's weakness.

    I was over the other side where Gong Zhichao was taking on the Japanese player. I didn't get to see much of Camilla's match until she started yelling loudly

    she's probably burnt out.

    Do I have to quote you???? *joking*

    Okay, May and I have hereby decided that if either of us was to be Camilla Martin, we would call it a day. =P

    Fortunately or not, neither of us is.

    What? Martin 26 y.o? In that case she should think of giving up - she's really scared of Zhang Ning who wa sher great rival earlier when both were 20-22. Now both are old cows.
    Yes, I think Martin could come back (for short spell) if she drops Gade. They are bad for each other's badminton. What say you?

    I kinda feel tt u r being rude. they r old, yes, but the other epithet is not fitting in the least. truth be told, i dun really think they haf a bearing on either's game, i mean, Gade's not being here this time didn't make a difference.

    Are you referring to Gong ZC or Camilla?

    Lachimi Guest

    Me being rude? I am a paragon of politeness. You were the one, May, to say that Camilla should kick Gade out. I have thought the same for a long time. Now you say Gade being away did not affect her game, which makes it worse. MAKE UP YOUR MIND, MATE.
    Old cow Zhang may be, but she won the title, but sh'e been WJC, GPC and No 1, so her win is only surprising because the front-runners all failed. This 5/7 scoring system is a real lottery and grossly favours power players. Lachimi

    Gade in ? Gade out ? Who knows ?

    Ge Fei could do well why not Camilia ? Ge and Sun both won

    the WC before.

    I think Camilia should reply to this subject.
