    Ma Jin's expression and the whole body language is just purely priceless.

    Ma Jin stands emotionless as she indulges into her partner's aerobic performance

    Actually, it is a new innovation by BWF in an attempt to keep our sport in the Olympics: 'Rhythmic Badminton'. ;-)

    MJ expression is like a mother whose her child doing some "routine" whenever they want their mother to buy a toy for them. Usually this is done in front of the toy store.

    if Ma Jin laughing, the picture will not be funny anymore. Ma Jin's expression and body language make the picture funny :).

    May be Ma Jin was wondering, "when will Xu Chen realize, that it's time to stop these acrobatic moves, and start playing Badminton?" :)

    It's a priceless expression from MaJin, and the photo wouldn't have been complete without her being part of it, with that face expression.. :)

    Yes, Ma Jin's stunned look instead of bent double with laughter is what makes this photo a classic.

    MJ 5 possible thoughts

    - "bro......they're waiting for your serve"
    - "damn this skirt.........i wish i can do that as well"
    - "CBA will be extremely proud of you for doing such honored, beautiful acrobatic gesture to our opponents prior to this match"
    - "i'm leaving.........you're on your own"
    - "bro.....you're upside down for half an hour already.......we already conceded the match"

    Haha.. It's not stunned look... It's an annoyed look, like "yeah, I know that I should've gotten that bird, but do you have to do that every time?" :)

    You may be right , just that I'd thought that was Xu Chen in a celebratory stunt immediately after the match.

    Or was it executed during the match after losing a point and he was like telling Ma Jin, " Don't worry. Look, see how I turn our opponents upside down afterwards !" ?:D

    just saw the thread ) this is not new, there was a match in the final of korea open 2013 between Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei and Ma Jin/Xu Chen. He did the same thing along with some other similar stuff. There's a replay of the match on the bwf youtube channel, here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv2FeGzykwc
    At the end his game level really dropped and it looked like he was feeling really unwell. Maybe some drugs or medication ? )
