    True. I won't call that Saina played extremely bad. But she was like 10% below her usual self, leave alone her best. Also, WSX did indeed play brilliantly today. She has added a lot of skills, and the way she was making Saina move across the court was brilliant.

    But, it is human to lose!

    Also, frankly, I would support Lin Dan over anyone! Whoever comes, be it!

    Was hoping that Michelle Li can kick Marin's (_|_) again like she did in Sudirman Cup. But, unfortunately, she is out of the game.. Grrrrr!!!!

    Saina is worker who relies on pace and brute force attack. She was unable to read WSX's deceptive shots, and her attack were not able to penetrate WSX's defense. WSX won the match, not that Saina lost it.

    As for one's expectation for next head-to-head match, I am not sure where the confidence for Saina is coming from besides patriotism. Although the head-to-head between Saina and WSX is pretty even, WSX won 5 out of the most recent 7 encounters. It seems like WSX has figured out Saina rather than the other way around.

    I respect but disagree with your choice and opinion. Badminton have nothing to do with patriotism. Nationality is by birth, and preferences are by choice. I would respect one's preference or choices without considering his/her nationality.

    Chinese [Indian] lost to Indian [Chinese], and cheers?

    No problem as long as one is not trying to mock the loser, regardless of nationality. Creating a fake account to cheer for a player is indeed too much. But this is yet another baseless accusation.

    Cheers :)

    Aye. I thought the K9000 was an odd choice for him given his front-court preference... but then I'm not an MD World Champion.

    What's he using now then? Seriously, he would be MD World Champion even if he used a racket from the 1990s hehe.
