    Something to add.

    I think when Fu sliced the shuttle below the net, the shuttle touched the net on the way up, hence the net 'shook'.

    The umpire did not fault, so I guess it's a game call. Although we saw the replay that the racquet may have hit the net.

    The slice by Fu was horizontal and quite unlikely to hit the shuttle, (I assume) if the Umpire saw it from his lofty position. (He had to make a game decision on the spot, it's his call)

    you won't see it in the slow mo replay portion, but at 7:44 you'll see the bottom of the net move when her racket touches the bottom of the net at the instant she retrieves that tumbling net shot. there's no way the umpire sitting up high would have seen that fault, but the service judge would have seen it, but that's not his job and that is just the way life is sometimes...

    (i know, i know, i've got a sharp eye and i'm a perfectionist... )
    Don't agree beacause look at 8:10 - 8:11 when the shuttle clips the tape on the way back down exactly the same ripple occurs at the bottom of the net and nobodys racket was near at this point.

    Think we need CSI to get to the bottom of the matter.

    Regardless whether she faulted anot, to me it's indeed an amazing shot.... especially at such a crucial point. I prolly can't do it 1 time even if given 50 chances during practice.

    Looked more lucky than skill to best honest with you. I wouldn't classify this as the best net retrieval ever either. Perhaps my definition of "best net retrieval" is different from yours.

    Skill vs luck: sometimes difficult to differentiate. As Gill Clark would commentate: sometimes you create your own luck. . But in this case, to be able to even get a rolling net shot back over is skill enough, and to have her return tip over the net to win the point is pretty amazing.

    You're probably correct. I slowed down the YouTube video to analyze it frame by frame, and still couldn't really see a clear fault.

    The ripple at the bottom of the net couldve also been caused by the air movement from her racket.

    Yep, it was practically the only shot that she could do, and she did it amazingly well. . Being that there's no clear obvious fault, I'd imagine no umpire in their right mind would even think of a fault here, especially here in front of her home crowd and supporters.

    Correction:She was not playing on home-ground.
    the uniqueness of it all was that she was playing in the opponent's home ground instead, 20-all , 3rd final set. It was during the South-East Asian Games 2011 that was held in Indonesia, a powerhouse in S.E.A badminton where Indonesia was expected to have a clean sweep in all 5 categories. they won 4, except this one.

    With the video quality, I can't say anything for sure, but to me it actually looks like it was the shuttle. The cord moves quite a bit, and that could very well be the reason for the net moving....but as I said, no way to be sure with that quality.

    Net does move at 7.44
    But, can't see if the racquet or shuttle is to blame AND the opponent doesn't make an issue of it at all.
    I would call it an awesome return!
