    Default 2013 Victor Korean Open PSS Finals (January 13)

    Finally! The Finals day!

    First, the links...
    LiveScore, and Order of Play and all that:
    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sp...729&d=20130113

    Time In Korea:
    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=235

    PAW game:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...-Open-PSS-2013

    Quick takes:

    There will be two all-China matches, the WD and the XD.I'd like to see if MJ/TJ can knock out that other pair this time around.

    MoBo vs KoLee promises to be an intriguing battle. Mind-games and subtleties vs enthusiasm and testosterone.

    The WS title match holds huge promise for the local girl to take her first PSS title. Only, a veteran brawler is standing in the way... D

    The XD match is a replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay...

    The MS finals will allow DPY an opportunity to prove that his China Open win over LCW was not an aberration.

    And finally, this observation: There hasn't been much bitching about the line calls this year!

    no because the bitching was focused on somewhere else

    Some tough predictions to be made:

    Wang Xiaoli/Yu Yang over Ma Jin/Tang Jinhua (under usual circumstances)
    Mathias Boe/Cartsen Mogensen over Ko Sung Hyun/Lee Yong Dae
    Wang Shixian over Sung Ji Hyun
    Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei over Xu Chen/Ma Jin
    Lee Chong Wei over Du Pengyu

    Yup, KOR has chance to bag 2 titles here, hopefully no sad ending for them this time.
    Sung JH v Wang SX, rematch of 2010 final which won by the Chinese. Let's see whether the in-form Sung could take revenge in front of her homeground fans
    Wang Shixian always cruise to KOR Open final in 4 consecutive years since 2010, looks like KOR is lucky land for her
    2010 : Wang SX v Sung JH, won
    2011 : Wang SX v Wang YH, lost
    2012 : Wang SX v Jiang YJ, won
    2013 : Wang SX v Sung JH, ??

    those were not tough predictions... i would have predicted the same, i'd say 8 to 2 in favour of each winner for each discipline

    Yu Yang kicks off proceedings on the final day, and her first serve is a good one.

    The longest rally of the tournament.

    Yu Yang looking really tired. Wang Xiaoli adjusting by upping the quality of her placement and power on smashes, and they take the first game 21-17.

    Considering how new the Ma/Tang pairing is, they aren't doing bad against the WC.

    TJH is really a precious find - she'll be the WD mainstay in another 2-3 years, I'll bet. OG 2016 sure-shot.

    It's my first time seeing Ma Jin smashing three times in succession.
