    In my views of the services especially, the following players' services look too high. Is this just from the camera angle? Or whose service do you think looks like fault? :)

    LWW, TBH, Tazari(Partner of Zakry).... oh.. turned out to be all MAS players.. sorry no intention for it.

    Markis Kido, and Candra Wijaya... without a doubt. Sometimes, Boes of Denmark as well.

    Taufik has a good low serve that is definitely obeying the rules.

    CY's looks too high, and FHF's racquet almost looks straight.

    I have to agree with bananakid, TH has a very effective serve which looks stylish as well. In terms of style, I think LD and TH take the cake.

    I saw FHF's services are okay and in another thread I read the part for the racquet angle has been removed in the regulation. :)

    not much advantage to contact the shuttle above the height limit in singles.

    I sometimes stop the video and check the service height... finding they're too high much above the waist line.

    Having watched the Olympic badminton for all 8 days I can safely say I would have faulted every single one of FHF's serves and about 90% of CY's - I don't know how they get away with it (but Li Yongbo still deemed it necessary to go mental at the officials:confused:).

    As for stylish serves, how about Chen Jin?

    CJ's serve looks boring...LD's is cool even though he has that questionable "double swing" (because he doesn't pause before serving, just brings the racquet forward, the backswing and swing start right after).

    By style, I dont' mean cheating, I just mean they look cool :D
