    Yes, Ah Soh means auntie :D.
    But she has an infectious smile. Did you noticed when she made a service error, she will start smiling & laugh & jumping up and down & using her racket to hit her own head.
    I think "Harry Potter" is holding back his smile when he sees her actions and "infectious" smile. :)

    Agree.... It is the most unpredictable event... Have a look at the draw in those 4 groups. It is a really tight draws. Based on the last performance on super series event, definitely, Sudket/Saralee is on fire. However, they are not the Top 4 in XD, their consistency is still questionable. On the other hand, top 2 XD performance is in jeopardy as a result of a not performing on their A level in several occasions. Additionally, JFN/CP & Towi/Butet performance did not show any improvement which is exceptional to be the best contender for Gold. Nonetheless, my heart is with Towi/Butet.

    The crowd is gonna have a HUGE part to play from the quarter-finals onwards....
    I have a hunch JF/CP will get at least a silver.... if not the Gold....

    what make you draw such a conclusion that Xu Chen being the liability to Majin?

    Xu Chen is by all means a better player than Zhang Nan at least. He has won many titles inside China in either men's double or mixed double.

    Xu Chen has been underrated here at this forum for a long time. When he teamed with Guo ZD, they delivered almost the same result as GuoZD/Xie ZB and GuoZD/Cai B. Although Guo ZD always the one in the national team for mens' double, but he's the weakest link all the time. When they played seperated inside China, Xu Chen had the best records, won a lot, Xie ZB and Cai B were good too, many times they were the semi-finalists. And Guo ZD is always the 2nd class in China.

    Don't know why Chinese coach built the men's double based on Guo ZD, the 2nd class even in China?

    ZN/ZYL just beat the best European double Joachim Fischer Nielsen/Christinna Pedersen,

    while XC/MJ just defeated the best Asian double Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir.
