Never thought I'd say this, but Kudos to HH
Does the fact that he is playing under the banner of KLRC makes him a more responsible and committed player?
Also, does anyone notice that LD hardly ever acknowledges his coaches' comments at game intervals? Not even a nod.

What is happening to Wang Zhengming? Once touted as the fast up and coming player to take over from LD, now his road to the top is slowing down.

You can see from the match that even the chinese coaches were shaking their head in disbelief. Even clear winners at net went out from LD.
Call it whatever you want, you can say that LD was not at his best or just toying around or maybe an off day. But HH had the chance to nail it. I mean really nail it. If LD was at this form playing with LCW, he would have been a goner.
HH should have been concentrating more on making less errors. I think he was just expecting LD to give it to him when he was leading after the 2nd game interval.
Like Morten Frost used to comment on LCW vs LD games - you have to make initiative to take the game from LD, you can't expect him to give the game to you.

No I am not going to talk about HH needing mental strength to beat LD. Everybody knows that.
But rather, I am saying that for LD, to be a game down, and trailing 14-18 from behind in the 2d game, staying calm and gathering what it takes to win the 2nd game - that takes mental strength.

Yup, Wang YH ver 2.0 proves it yet again, demolished Gu Juan yesterday and today just walloped none other than Saina Nehwal. What a true world champion is Wang Yihan now!
As Wang SX, if she struggles against Juliane Schenk afterwards, it means I'm right about her - she certainly must learn how to attack as Morten Frost said it twice before: that's how he would train her as her coach, to raise her level of play.
It's my humble opinion that never has a defensive or passive player been at the top, at least not for long, no matter what sports. To draw an analogy with table-tennis, you have great defensive exponents like Kim Kyung-Ah and Joo Se-hyuk, always within the top 10 but never within top 3 or seldom win a major title.
To be frank, I actually like Wang SX a lot some time ago when she burst onto the world stage with her unusual but effective style of play, her knack of twisting and turning her opponents as Jo Clark the well-respected commentator often described her ability. But as time goes by, one by one her opponents came to realize her playing style and anticipate better her return shots, mostly drops and clears with hardly any smashes, and was able to tackle her and gave her a hard time. That's when she started going downhill lately, and it begins to disappoint and bores me, though I still hope to see her transformation, just as what we are witnessing now in Wang Yihan ver 2.0.

The capitulation of Saina against WYH (which vindicates your suspicions) was disappointing with respect to Cookie's results. It will be interesting to see how she will fare in her homeground next week. But I feel that she has gone from strength to strength recently. Not to mention her height advantage.
I was about to declare that this decade belongs to who I see as ZN's successor, when she suddenly lost to JYJ. Probably a little more time is needed.

JYJ always beats her own teammates. Her China Super league record is unparalleled. BUT... somewhat suspicious that BOTH WSX and JYJ made the final against clearly superior teammates. Hmmm....
