    Hi!

    I saw on the TV-transmission here this morning that they wheere showing smash speed radar meausement on the BWF TV.. The Venue is considered slow by many of the players here..

    The only ones i catched when the speed was displayd was some of the women speeds..

    I think Wang Xing had the fastest with 220km/h and Gutt had 214, Yu Yang had 207.

    Did anyone catch the speeds? Esepcailly the men? Maybe someone recorded from TV?

    I am curious..

    Cheers,
    Twobeer

    I think they mentioned the men were in the 280 max. but mostly it has been in the 250-260 range ... I think Sasaki would've benefited from faster conditions for sure ...

    they haven't shown any lists that I have seen so far, and I have followed everyday.:) although they do show, after a rally if a big smash is a winner, they show the speed.

    could have been shown in the bigscreen before the broadcasting began. Or maybe I just missed it...
