That's the thing. No one quite remembers. The rally ends, I award the point to the Netherlands side. Then Bao was holding her face for a while. I was concerned so I started my stopwatch and called the referee. Whike the referee was walking over, she started to get ready and so I resumed the match. 8-5 play. And Bao kept asking me "my serve right?" I said no, Netherlands wonthe point, or at least I marked it down as they did. But I honestly couldn't recall how the rally ended. Neither did my service judge. Netherlands claimed they won the point. So I let it stand and the Chinese coaches were yelling No, 6-7. So once the match ended, no one remembered what happened. I just talk to one of the match control people and he says he remembers the Chinese didn't make it over the net. The 1st game ended 21-19. Bao made a lot of mistakes at the net.
I think it may leave a scar or a bruise for a while
Just checked ts.com and noticed that Chai Biao and Bao Yixin got eliminated.
I didn't expect anyone could get double digits points per game against 2 top Chinese double players. What a shock.
Yeah, surprising indeed. Bao YX should focus to WD match after her XD losing here...

Thanks for your info I guess this is the first time Bao YX paired up with Chai B, CMIIW.
Yes, I umpired the semis between Yuka and Nichaon. I totally thought Nichaon had it in the bag especially coming out 21-13 1st game. The Japanese deputy referee says Yuka is not on the national team
Really wonderful to have an umpire in BCer's list. I am really eager to watch one of the matches which you umpired. Hopefully, looking forward to the match in the near future for live streaming.
And regarding the japanese WS players : Japan is keep on producing many talented WS players every now and then. They will arrive and give an upset by beating seeded players and give you a shock. And even before the scar disappears, you can find one more talent arising from the machine.
