At the end of warm-up Sony was stretching his back in a way that made me think he was hurting a bit. Nonetheless he certainly played hard really giving his all at times. But Chen Long was just too good. His retrieving was amazing. Sony couldn't overpower him with smashes, nor outplay him at the net. Even those cleverly deceptive sliced drop shots only fooled CL a couple of times. Sony simply ran out of ideas. No shame in Sony losing to Chen Long today. The Chinese #2 was just unbeatable. Good luck next time SDK!
