    I believe KOR coaches are thinking the same too. :):):)

    Let's wait and see.

    In the next month or 2, I believe HJE will be participating in just the XD event (although LYD will still be involved in both the MD and XD).

    Just checked the TS seed list for upcoming Maybank MO... HJE is only playing WD, not XD! And LYD is only playing MD, no XD! :p

    Looks like they're giving their partnership a break...

    D'oh! She's not seeded with LYD, so they're not on the list, but they are playing 2 events each again at the MO! :eek:

    Great match. But his MD was even better :D Lots of ohhs and ahhs :)
    Could've hit myself - I walked past him several times, but didn't have anything at all for him to sign :/
    Next year, I'll be prepared. I hope somebody recorded one of those matches of him.
    The umpiring in the mixed was ridiculous, by the way - the umpire wouldn't allow any players to towel down, not even after Sato had basically mopped half the court. When all 4 went for a towel-down anyway, Matsuo Shizuka got a yellow card.....some umpires still live in the 80s.

    I noticed that LYD and HJE rarely talk to each other during KO semi-final match, especially during 1st game, they probably didn't speak to each other at all, just something strange I would say. Do they not like each other off the court?? just wondering... It's rarely to see doubles players don't communicate during matches. Maybe they're both too tired to think stuff to discuss, it's tough to play 2 matches a day and keeping up with the intensity at all times.

    I have no idea. They talked a little at the GO semis, but it doesn't seem like they have a friendly relationship - rather a professional one. Or they're so used to each other (they played as kids) that they don't need to talk ;)
    The tiredness is probably not the reason. When you play intensely like that, your body can start to get tired and ache, but in a match, you're 100% awake.
    That being said, they didn't look like they were playing with their full intensity in yesterday's first game. Rather timid performance, kind of defensive, and LYD didn't smash very hard. Only at the end did you see their effort, but at 19-20 LYD decided to smash a half-court lift into the net :D
    The next games were completely different, and super exiting. I hope he continues coming here every year!

    Perhaps their coaches could/would encourage them to communicate more (from now onwards).

    what the heck is wrong with HJE's hair style? looks like she tripped and fell head first into a bucket of red paint!

    I see you're exercising your right to be the BC hair critic again. :D

    To me she always looks like she's sucked a lemon. Man, that's a sour looking face.

    Looks like red is not LYD/HJE's lucky color in that tournament. :eek::)

    Finally, we have arrived at the 2012 London Olympics. :):):)

    On Sunday 29-July-2012, Lee Yong Dae/Ha Jung Eun will play their first match against Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir [3] of Indonesia.

    This could be a very close match, and an interesting match to watch.
