    It was a great match, THW vs XS. But apparently not many here are excited or thrilled by it simply because it's CHN vs CHN. Such a shame.

    I think Tian Houwei is the son of Li Yongbo double partner, Tian Bianyi.

    For my friend Justin. Sun Jun like XS is from Guangdong. Was a WJC winner and about as tall as XS. Very fast on court, he was considered the quickest player in the world during his time. He had a ferocious attack, both forehand and backhand and a very good defense too. He was both a world championship and AE winner. Was plagued by injury and retired after Sydney 2000. Is married to Ge Fei, one half of the legendary Ge Fei/Gu Jun ladies double combination

    Of course we're not excited. We don't like sporting superpowers that fix games, feign illness, and throw Olympic matches. We love a good underdog, but we like an aging but humble champion better.

    Actually come to think of it, when was the list time it was Chn vs Chn and actually NOT a match-fixed, *coughcough* I think bottled water made me sick, oh this is just the olympics just play to lose free wheeling game?

    There we go again, is that all that you see? Never mind,please, to each his own,let's not start a torrent of words here. It's getting meaningless, suit yourself, just let it be.

    China as a badminton superpower is benign, nothing like..., oh dear, I'm sorry, I forgot,let's end the conversation here (I 'll just bear Peter Gade's words in mind).

    We'll see his performance next, kudos for Tian HW to beat one of current best MS in semifinal yesterday and he deserved to win here, big congrats!

    In the match, XS was trying to finish his opponent off by attacking aggressively right from the beginning but as THW was able to thwart his attacks by throwing everything back at him, he grew tired towards the end and was forced several times to play some rallies at which time THW turned the tables on him and seized the opportunities to go on the attack instead. It showed that XS has to be wary of superb defenders and learn to construct the rally and bide his time sometimes.

    Hope somebody can put some of those videos on youtube, viz. THW-LCW, XS-AlamYunus, and THW-XS so that more people get to view them. This two young gladiators are a delight to watch, hope CBA give them more exposure and field them in more tournaments. The good news is we'll be seeing both THW and XS in the NZ Open next week. However the draw for XS isn't so good as he is slated to meet Qiao Bin in R2.

    These guys are really ignorable... Guys like this always think only China makes badminton a victim, in fact they themselves and what they now behave (simply ignore excellency in badminton) are unfortunately poisonous to badminton and making badminton a victim even more....

    We should encourage new comers to challenge and overtake the oldies, no matter which countries they may come from, only this could make a sports continue to be prosperous and sustainable.

    therefore congratulations to THW, XS, the 3 INA title winners / winning pairs, and badminton sport, with your emergence, we see new hopes in badminton future!

    Shin Baek Choel had to cover all four corners of the court since Jang Ye Na's not moving... ~.~"

    Definitely the team carrier, good on you Shin!


    Hope Ye Na can improve on her speed and net exchange

    Well said.

    BTW, you have forgotten to mention about our young up-and-coming Sayaka Takahashi; Although seeded 7, she managed to win the WS title.

    A well deserved victory from THW in today's final. Showed calmness and had a great control of the game especially the 3rd set. Saw him in Malaysia during AJC a few years back, and i thought that this lad is da guy to watch in the future. To me, his style is a bit like LD and his smash is explosively powerful. P/s he is from Fujian province which came from the same place as LD And he's a lefty.. what a coincident.

    It's been quite some time since we've seen a up and coming MS player being able to scalp much higher ranked opponents when they are just fresh onto the scene. When LD/LCW/BCL (TH belonged to a slightly earlier era IMO) burst into the senior circuit around 2003/2004, they regularly gave the veterans of that period (XXZ, CH, PG, KJ, WCH, etc) a run for their money. Hopefully THW and XS's performances aren't just a flash in the pan like KT's at the AE2010.
