    Too bad about the loss today. Nice to see that BWF:s youtube channel showed her match against Bae...
    On another note, this is the first time I've seen Bae playing. I'm not liking her fist pumping and looks towards her opponent. For a while there I thought I was watching Boe, Mogensen or Jorgensen.

    Fist pumping especially when facing the opponent was considered very rude and unacceptable during its early days.

    However, nowadays it seems most fans are accepting it and other antics like LD's shirt tearing and salute, as part of the drama on court that makes badminton characters more interesting to watch.

    Fist pumping and cries of victory are very much part of a player's psyche to motivate himself.

    Don't get me wrong. I don't think there is something wrong with motivate oneself through fist pumping and cries. I scream quite a lot on court as well, but never towards my opponent. The right word for fist pumping and screams etc towards an opponent wouldn't be motivation. I think 'taunt' is a more suitable word for it.

    Me too. Dislike Bae's reaction on court. Yamaguchi is still young. She will learn from this defeat and improves her skills.

    Sad to see Akane lost in early stage in All-England 2014. She should follow her team mates' footstep by playing in lower leagues to gain more experiences.
