    AY forcing WSX into committing error after error.
    WSX even missed a sitter at the net and finally losing the point.

    Very true. Very very true. Not only her, many players like Suo Di, Sun Yu and even Liu Xin totally lack international exposure. I am also sure they lack personal attention of the coaches, who would give far more attention to their well known seniors.

    No. I didn't watch. I just followed the live scores on my mobile using bet365.com.

    Interesting facts I read somewhere. Starting from 1991, for the first time ever, chinese shuttlers are absent in the finals of WS? Is it true?.

    But I thought if you are registered with bet365, you will have access to their live videos.

    KS would create history if he wins it but it will be tough, very tough.
    Go KS.

    Yes, at least since 1991. Actually since 1991 only one non-chinese player has won the china open, that is LCW's girlfriend who defeated xie xingfang, LD's girlfriend.

    Though obviously china didn't play their number 1 player, yet it will be a big achievement to take a title from the lion's den.

    Above, I say 1991 because I can't find anything before that. Maybe the tournament started in 91.

    I like underdogs and always support them.
    Like in tennis. I was watching RF winning and I supported Nadal.
    And then Nadal was wining with FR and I supported NJ.
    And then NJ, Nadal and RF were winning and I supported Murray.
    Now, I am supporting Kei Nishikori.

    Those days there were no points awarded.
    The ranking came in later. I think 1997.
