    Mizuki Fujii / Reika Kakiiwa (4) opt to become B2, thus they'll face Christinna Pedersen / Kamila Rytter Juhl [B2 vs D1] instead of Tian Qing / Zhao Yunlei (2) [B1 vs D2] on the process gave assist to TPE and sacrificed IND pair.... smiling TPE, tearing IND....

    yes, occasionally BC server is jammed for a flick, becoming not available, then in seconds back to normal, refresh the browser, everything is fine. Looks like BC is getting more hits in this Olympic festive... increased popularity

    Another veteran Pi Hongyan went the distance to take out Chloe Magee, 16-21,21-18,and 21-14.

    However,Inthanon's victory over her POR opponent was one-sided. She's on course to cross swords with Juliane Schenk, a pity either of them has to be out of contention for a medal.

    So, team GB's challenge is eliminated with the defeat of Rajiv Ouseph. Excellent work, Kevin Cordon in his favourite hunting ground .....

    All these tough challenges and some upsets is good for world badminton at large. Those who were given the chance to cross swords with top players really took their chances well to perform at the highest stage.

    although tian/zhao are ranked two in group D, isnt it still possible for an all chinese wd final? If wang/yu lose their match againts korea tonight (fixed match), that puts them in the second spot, thus they'll be playing in the bottom half whereas tian/zhao will play in the top half???

    Hopefully both pairs get knocked out before the Final, if they fix matches!! ****ing annyoing Chinese toys of the system... Sorry for being so harsh, but I want to see sport in its Nature, fight for it until the end and the better will win :-D
    A real pity, poor athletes...
    The same story propably in the MD, where it is possible to fix the QF CHN vs CHN...
    Btw. if the CHN WD play each other IŽll root for Zhao/Tian, overall I hope the Danes (and Koreans) can put up more upsets like today

    I agree: that "crap" word may be not the most appropiate. But you should see where Spain was not so far. Badminton entered in Spain just 30 years ago. In the last 10 there was a huge evolution: not only in number of players, you can see Pablo or Carolina Marin, who I really expect to be a top ten player in WS. And obviously the coaches are in that evolution.

    WD....maybe yes and maybe not. Likelihood is quite low since Zhao Yunlei can concentrate fully in XD.


    But MD, look at it this way....so if Cai-Fu plays to avoid their teammates....then...they will finish as runners up and end up meeting Boe/Mogensen followed by Jung/Lee in the bottom half of the draw.

    That is not a very smart thing to do from the Chinese side.....

    scroll back at post #167 for answer
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php/115257-2012-London-Olympics-Day-4-(Tuesday-31st-July)?p=1943691#post1943691

    i agree that they both may switch half for some tactical purpose.

    scroll back then you'll find lots of interesting tactical moves such as the give-away from Mizuki Fujii / Reika Kakiiwa to Cheng Wen Hsing / Chien Yu Chin .... MANY UPSETS today Olympic jinx!!

    Omg, even the Japanese pair is faking their match.

    There's no way Fujii/Kakiiwa will lose to Cheng/Chen. Their h2h was amazing.

    Well understandable. To avoid facing Zhao/Tian, they do have amazing record against the Danish pair.

    the HK girls Poon Lok Yan and Tse Ying Suet actually have very good techniques. but mentally just kinda day dreaming most of the time. they need a better coach to whip them into playing better badminton than this.

    while frankly the Japanese in general don't have the best looking strokes but they trumps everybody mentally.
