    Default Match of the Year

    what match was the best match of the year for 2012?

    LD vs LCW in London? or something else?

    I also like WYH vs Sung JH in Uber.

    By "best match of the year" you mean, like your statement in Athlete of the Year thread: "...has done the most to influence the events of the year"?

    Then I'll vote for this:
    Kamilla Rytter Juhl/Christinna Pedersen vs Tian Qing/Zhao Yunlei in 2012 Summer Olympics.

    The result of said match has generated chain reaction which... ah, no need to elaborate any further, shall I?

    No need to worry about the answers .. You can expect more threads of similar kind and the answer will be given by the persons themselves who raised the query.. And mentioning the players of their own country not others .

    I would say the match of the year or maybe the match of the decade will be the match that people will keep talking/remembered for years and that would be WXL/YY last match in Olympic.

    But if talking about the match that I love to watch will be : (in order of preference)
    1. Uber Cup where WYH beat Sung
    2. Men double Olympic semifinal between Boe/Mogensen and JJS/LYD
    3. LD vs LCW in Olympic (it is the build up that is exciting, actually I would rank 2011 WC final between them to be better in terms of entertainment and excitement and there were a couple more before that).

    yes, by Match of the Year, I meant the Match "has done the most to influence the events of the year".

    but, if u think Match of the Year should mean the best Match of the Year or your favourite Match, i think those are ok too.

    Coming to 12.
    Last month, I went to watch the under 12 selection by Astro for JB. They selected 6 boys and I am sure all 6 of them can beat me.
    FYI, one of the boys is a nephew of one of the national coach, at that time. Hehe.

    This was a good match however it was marred by the usual bad sporting behaviour. Boe's antics...pointing his finger, laughing at JJS, etc. Not what you would expect for the Olympics as the motto is 'fair play'.

    I thought the match with KKK,TBH v Boe, Mo in the Denmark Open semis was a great fightback from the Malaysians and to beat the Danes on home soil is a good acheivement. I hope it's a sign of good things to come from the Malaysians.

    Boe wasn't laughing in the finals

    LCW vs LD at the Olympics was easily the match of the year for me. A really intense game and the atmosphere in the arena was electric...I've never watched a game like that before. The MD final game after it felt tame in comparison and I saw quite a few people leave right after the LCW / LD game.

    I rate the match highly because it was intense and close. I did not like the outcome too. The last defeat of JJS and he did not manage an Olympic gold in his career.

    But because that is the end of JJS quest, it makes it a match to be remembered too and that makes me put it to no 2 in the list.

    Emotional match for all 4.

    LYD JJS v CY FHF at the All England's. A great example of 2 pairs at the top of their game.
