    Great end of the day imo and even better that ksh khn won

    Again Ina mx against underdogs on TV court. I don't understand it... At least court 2 is also covered. But in worse quality...

    I fully agree and was upset when CJ replaced ZN as head WS coach. We cansee clearly yhe difference in results between 2009-2012 and 2013-2015.

    Eom works best with SBC imho. SBC seems is only concentrating on MD with KSH.

    What a day of upset! Only one CHN's WSX survived easily today. 2 Koreans and 1 Spanish remain. Couldn't believe it that Ice Queen, LXR lost to SJH. Bravo SJH!

    As usual, INA WD, XD, MD are nowhere to be found. It is either TA/LN or Ahsan/Hendra with the latter seems to be less consistent. I watched LuKai/Liu Cheng and they were amazing beating up Koreans KSH/SBC. No more Cai Yun in MD anymore I suppose.

    all CHN MD pairs now are tall-tall men except LXL. LXL/QZH I believe is the weakest amongst them.

    I like to hear the shouting match between WSX and Carolina in the final.

    Cmon man! If CM is shouting, you may as well call WSX as whimper.

    I have similar views to the quoted above part.
    I missed the match, so watched it in youtube just now.
    She was level 14-14 in the first game before loosing 15-21, and she was 10-9 up in the second before loosing 13-21.
    She lost her focus (and patience) towards the end of both games. It was a strange match from Saina.
    WSX played well, but Saina played badly- way below what she is capable.


    As for the next time, that can be just one weeks from now at the Indonesia SSP quarters. A bigger tournament in terms of both prize money and ranking points. May be Saina was saving herself for that, so she didn't go all out?
    Hope she wins in Indonesia.


    ----------
    And what's with these supposedly Indian commenters here cheering for an Indian player to loose against a Chinese player. I really don't get them. I have never seen a Chinese commenter in this forum who cheers for a Chinese player to loose against an Indian player. At least the Chinese have some self-respect.
    In fact, I am not even sure if these guys haven't created fake accounts.

    To find WSX pretty is one thing(personally I find her movements pretty, not so much her face), but to actually cheer all the way for her against Saina, who is from your own country, that's just too much.

    There are a few players from outside India that I like, but I never support them if they are up against say Saina, Sindhu or Srikanth. I support them in neutral matches though.

    There's still WSX. hope she wins otherwise China women single in trouble. I still remember a few years back even their 2nd tier players formidable. should let CJ have WSX and rest players back to ZN.
