    Just found one of the GC match video in Youtube (not her commentary, but she actually playing)
    I cannot describe how weird it is for an Englishman to hear Martin Tyler commentating on badminton...

    At the Denmark Open SSP, GC and Morten frost were doing their thing while Saina Nehwal played against Minatsu Mitani. Now, the news had been all about Saina dumping Gopi and training with Vimal Kumar in Bangalore, because she found Vimal to be more proactive or something. Well, GC and MF were discussing the fact that Saina was actually conversing with her coaches (Madhumita and another guy) at the interval of G2, and Morten thought it was a really good thing.

    Then GC came up with this old English expression she had been trying hard to remember, to underscore the importance of communication.

    "Tell me, I forget
    Ask me, I remember
    Involve me, I know".

    MF: "Oh, that's very ...poetic!"

    Good one from the French Open:
    "...and now match points galore."
