that was a great example of what poor sportsmanship looks like, intimidating the service judge. as Gillian Clark had mentioned, you really have no need to talk to the service judge because the players should already know from the handle signal the reason why it was a fault. if bo/mo had won the game i would have been pissed. they didn't play exceptionally better than ko/lee and i am glad that they focused on smashing at boe a few times to gain their points. as someone had already mentioned, the danes were mental midgets that day, LOL....
I'm not surprised coach Tang Xuehua was displeased with WSX's performance today. He probably believed she has the capability of beating Sung but felt she didn't play it right. Possibly he cared enough about her uncertain future in the national squad to show his disappointment. Btw, he was Zhang Ning's coach, I'm sure he knows what to do as long as she doesn't give up trying.
i bet he is hoping he will groom another Gong Zhichao out of her. but unfortunately although they are of similar stature, GZC has more speed, refined skill and can actually muster some pretty lethal offensive shots.
The problem is she only has 2 offensive shots ... You need more than that to win against the top players.
I started watching bwf's channel in 2011, so I'm really not sure how she ever got so high in the ranking.
