    Haha. So glad I get to post this...

    ATHENS, 19 August - Comments from LEE Dong Soo (KOR) after LEE Dong Soo's and YOO Yong Sung's (KOR) win 2-1 (9-15,15-5,15-3) against ERIKSEN Jens/LUNDGAARD H .Martin (DEN) in the Men's Doubles semifinal.

    LEE Dong Soo (KOR)

    On the match:

    "In the first set we were not so motivated, the Danish reaction was sharp, we were imbalanced. Then we calmed down and we started to cooperate and from the middle of second set we became more confident."

    On the final:

    "We feel patriotism, we are happy, we feel that everybody who watches this tournament globally will see two Korean pairs in the final and this is Korean pride for us."

    YEAH! LEE DONG SOO, JIA YOU! I mean, FIGHTING!

    Both pairs are Korean in the final, sounds good to me. Korean doubles are always my favourite, especially seeing Kim Dong-Moon in the final is a dream come true for this Athens 2004 ! Go Korea !

    hmm, isnt these pairs were at the final of 2000 All england? I had counted a rally of 69 shots on the final match point.

    The MD final should be a good game. I believe Kim/Ha have never lost to them, but i believe that it'll still be a close match because they train together. And for once they'll go all out because they have nothing to lose doing so. Tomorrow will be fun:)

    Yeah that match was absolutely amazing. A real lesson in modern MD! And that last rally was so brutally intense that after the final point was won by Kim/Ha, all four men collapsed to the ground in exhaustion LOL. I think that's my favourite MD match of all time next to a couple of the old Rexy/Ricky vs Cheah/Yap, and Rexy/Ricky vs Antonius/Kantono matches.
