It appears that the whole China team is in a bit of a disarray after the Olympics when they reaped a bumper harvest far exceeding their goals and expectations. Not only the players,particularly their gold medallists, but also the coaches including Li Yongbo himself are giving themselves a well-deserved long break. Lin Dan himself is on long leave and will likely not play in the Superseries Final as reported. Cai Yun injured his shoulder in his very first match and tournament. Li Xuerui lost three times in three events. Zhao Yunlei is off-form partnering Tian Qing in WD and then in the XD. Chen Jin since before the Olympics is still not himself. While Wang Xin is nursing her Olympic injury, Wang Yihan today sustained hers. Even their second stringers are not performing quite as they usually do.
It is high time for Li Yongbo to gather the whole team for a crisis management meeting and put things back on track before the situation spirals out of control or things are going to get worse before they get better. For a start, damage control is the order of the day, do a thorough analysis of where the problem lies and nip it in the bud. Maybe things aren't that serious yet but something has to be done about it to restore the right balance and steady the ship. Meanwhile, the slackening is a bit too worrisome to say the least. Wake up, CBA!

a smile, a nod, a clap can convey much more than words. i believe language is over rated for communication. non verbal communication is a large part.
an example - there are always some points in a game that u win by luck. for example your smash hits the tape and just tumbles over. i have seen WYH celebrate it like a point won by skill. I have seen lcw be quiet or raise his hand apologetically.
to me this is the difference. Lin Dan is like LCW in many respects. but i dont like the attitude of WYH in this regard.

Thanks for pointing that out. Mistake on my part for assuming they can speak a common language. But still there is universal language called smile and handshake which doesnt require them to speak. When I see a WS match its like
Mission: beat the Chinese Players
Outcome: Lost, 95%
Reason: they were better players
Mission: beat SN and rest of the World
Outcome: Won, 95%
Reason: we were better players
LOL! Thats how I see it. There is nothing else to their game.

You surely have set some high standards or easy approach to evade give excuses for a loss.
You dint wanted to bring Wang Xin here well said then, but in both case it wasnt SN who had to concede any match. injury to anyone is unfortunate so you leave that out but the results speak out for themselves. the scoreline then and now would always read SN won the matches, if anyone has to say anybody got lucky or unlucky and put in iffs and buts its their wish and that hardly matters anyways.

Anyways she has the medals for the record and others could just say anything they wish to but they can never take out the results from her.

Oh wow, the Japanese ladies have won yet again.
Didn't expect to say this one more time, tonight, with the opponents being TQ/ZYL.
Ran out of jumping smileys to paste, so .
Gonna have to skip the Deathly Hallows 2 tomorrow and watch the rerun instead, but it should be well worth the sacrifice.
Ayaka's arm looked as though it was about to stop listening to her commands.
There must a way to siphon off all the lactic acid.
I guess they will probably need to rotate the backline duties in the final match to minimise fatigue.
demolidor must be kicking himself for not PAWing the right pair .
Anyway, wow .

if u are one of the badminton player,u should be comitted to keep urself ready to tournament.
if u only treat badminton as a tool,then better get lost from badminton circuit.
did u ever see peter said: oh,i lack of practise because i am busy to publish my book!.
those excuses only show how u treat ur badminton and show what kind of people are u.

"Hey Guys, well, unfortunately things didn't go as planned in my first round match yesterday against Soroubh Varma from India. I lost my match 18-21 14-21. I knew there was a risk of this happen, since my preps hasn't been like the would normally be. But i wasn't feeling that good on court yesterday and Varma made it very difficult for me, playing a clever game.."
My disclaimer: this is not intended to put discredit to the great Peter. He will always be the legend

KKK/TBH failed again at the last hurdle against SBC/YYS (U).
What a shame after their brilliant performance against MB/CM (S1) in the SF.
