did li think the defeat by the korean pair in front of the home crowd wasn't devastating enough for the chinese girls and subjected them to public humiliation ? that's cruel! zhang & wei are 2 fine young ladies, li should show some compassion with encouragement. don't tell me that's chinese tradition to produce world class players. or they are still behind the iron curtain. for all the victories or losses, the coach bears some credits as well as blames. li had failed to produce TC for his country for so many years (and AGAIN this year !). for coach li to lose his head at this very important stage, this is the best time & venue for li to be relieved as head coach. if the girls don't come back, that's bcos li has destroyed them.
