    Too many times that even when it is genuine, no one would believe.

    that's the problem with lying.

    we teach our kids everyday, but these adults seems to have taken it for granted something so simple.

    That's it! No one would believe a "crying wolf", irrespective of whether they are lying or not. In this case, people would see them trying to ramp up Ma Jin's notional point given she would be paired with Tang Yuanting (Tang, as we all know, has low notional point)

    Personally, just because YY/WXL were involved in the London Olympic fiasco which we are all too familiar with the ins and outs, which to me they are more like victims than perpetrators of a bad system, they are made to bear the brunt of it as if they were the only ones - and haven't they all, the 8 of them, paid a heavy price for it?

    While I can understand and accept their being criticized for it , the fact that some people only pick on YY/WXL and no-one else (except the CHN) can only smack of moral hypocrisy , outright double-standards and unashamed meanness touted as justice. To me, it reveals more of the criticizers themselves than anything. Enough said.

    It's the semifinals of the SSF and only the evening session has live telecast (?). Disappointing. What crescendo, more like an anti-climax for this year-end extravaganza.

    Unfortunate for JOJ to have to meet Lee CW in the semifinal in what should have been a final.

    LCW will double up, I don't expect a tight match this time.

    Feel sorry for him. Maybe the redraw should be conducted or required only when there are two players of the same nationality in opposite groups; otherwise the old format of the group topper playing the second finisher of the other group applies.

    At 7-3, LCW challenges the call and was awarded the point but JOJ is now disputing it...
