    Wang Zengming has the three Cs, i.e. Cool,Calm,and Collected, which should not be interpreted as laid-back.

    WZM wins Game 1 with a beautiful smash and cross court finish. If he showed more aggression and intensity for the entire match, he would be world #1

    LXR is 'angry with herself' in G2 and quickly runs into a good lead,13-5 now.

    Yoo Yeon Seong/Jang Ye Na defeated JFN/CP.... it seems JFN hasn't still recovered from his back injury...

    Haven't seen Parupalli or Wang Zhengming play before but they're definitely solid players from the play so far.

    Wang Zhengming has the slight edge in the backcourt attacking shots, his angles are superb using his height. Parupalli has pretty good retrieval skills but I wouldn't say he has one particular stand out weapon in his shots.

    You mean World No.1 after LD and LCW retires? What about Chen Long? But if WZM can suddenly inject pace, then possible, if not, I think, Chen Long is better, IMHO.

    LXR is too young to have Zhao Jianhua's temperament - needs to be pushed before she gears herself up.

    Parupalli losing his patience and trying to go for more winners, but it exposes a weakness in his game in that he doesn't seem to have enough firepower to get Zhengming out of place.

    11-5 in WZM's favor, seems to be a his match.

    WZM is frustrating his opponent by his "lazy" appearance, don't be fooled by him.

    I think WZM is more talented than Chen Long. WZM changes directions better then Chen Long, whereas Chen Long is a bit tall and he can be out-maneuvered. WZM covers the court without exerting much energy. But Chen Long is physically stronger, WZM should workout harder in the gym. I think WZM has a more natural smash and better precision.

    And he's a more natural player than Lin Dan. Lin Dan is great at being aggressive and creating opportunities for himself to win points. WZM is more like a magician, he wins a point out of nowhere. WZM needs to be more like Lin Dan and be aggressive to setup the point to win.

    WZM dominated Game 2, 21-7. That is very impressive, I think he showed a bit of his brilliance. But I think that is still only 75% of his true potential, he can be much better than that still.

    LXR is wide awake and wants to finish her match fast to conserve some energy for tomorrow.

    Is it going to be LXR's trademark to give away the 1st game before reeling off the next two? Careful there, may backfire, not a good thing to do, wasting effort and time.

    I don't think Tao/Tang has a fighting chance against Tantowi/Liliyana.

    I like Tang Jinhua, she will develop into an outstanding player i think. I think they have a chance.
