Lost but not out yet.
China WD is lucky this is a group stage. They can bounce back...

OT: almost the same kind of upsets are happening in Table-Tennis, GER Timo Boll,tipped to win a medal, was bundled out by unfancied 15th seed ROM Adrian Crisan, JAP's best hope Jun Mizutani ousted by 13th seed Danish Michael Maze, and KOR's Oh Sang Eun downed by 12th seed Kishikawa of JAP.
Indeed,the Olympics make accidental heroes of some and sad flops of quite a few.

WXL/YY winv(Not 100% sure, but it's unlikely the Kor cause an upset)
Ha/KMJ vs GP/MJ is interesting to watch.
Then there's two scenario:
Ha/KMJ vs GP/MJ, both trying to lose in the match (Not interesting)
WXL/YY failed to lose
Ha/KMJ vs GP/MJ >> Depend on the Kor strategy. All Kor QF? Or let one trying to play the giant?
But even if they trying to win, GP/MJ not gonna let that easy.

i think CHN would benefit from the seeds switching top and bottom, because now the bottom seems tougher than the top, which would make sense to have a stronger team against them on the bottom (#1) vs having to face each other (albeit easy semi). This cannot happen in MD because FHF/CY can't risk playing the danes and the koreans so early, and in a row, vs much better to take the easier quarterfinals.
That is... if you believe this match fixing to be the case =] That would be the most logical strategy.
The media would have a "field day" on the amount of "upsets"!
