    neither myself!

    it seemed SK carried the disappointment of losing the G2 into the decider, losing his touches, OTOH XS kept on his momentum... both present very good badminton match to watch!!

    I thought XS was gone when he was 12-19 down with the way SK was playing but what a come back we have.

    Infact , srikanth is the one who is mentally weak. Hope he realized by now what went wrong in the second game. He should utilise it in a positive way to build his career.

    Srikanth played terribly in the 2nd game and 3rd game it seems.

    Agree and I think the coach may give too many advices during the match which may unsettle SK a bit too.

    This extraordinary experience will benefit Xue Song much, boosting his confidence, enhancing his inner belief, and stand him in good stead in future. His character, perseverance and never-say-die spirit is remarkable. Coming from behind to win when all seemed lost is an unforgettable experience that can only toughen and strengthen him substantially.

    K Srikanth is praiseworthy too. There is good reason why Li Ning picks Srikanth and Sindhu to offer them sponsorships.

    AUS Open is now SSP, not sure if he is qualified to play yet. I certainly hope he could.

    incorrect match duration... it took much longer than just 38 min.

    I think this is a lesson Srikanth will never forget. He should have stayed calm and played safe since he had a commanding lead. I hope Gopi stops shouting instruction after every rally.

    I'm more excited for the new md pairs to replace the terrible bunch China has at the moment.

    Agreed the coach made him lose his focus.

    Now I understand how K Srikanth could beat Son Wan Ho the last time. I daresay he is the best IND MS at the moment, next is Prannoy.

    Agreed, he is very good to watch with amazing offensive play... just needs more stamina.

    XS is ranking #50 now and I believe he will go up a few positions after today's result. Let's hope he can make it.

    Too engrossed in the Australian Open and did not watch any of the matches from day one. Just check the results in TS and read your posts here. Glad that the Chinese youngsters played well to win 4 titles. That match between XS and SK must be very exciting the way you guys described it.

    Both the coach Gopichand and the player Srikanth himself were too excited and eager to win. Another thing is you cannot go all out to win G1 without pacing yourself well - he was literally attacking at every opportunity without constructing his rally when needed.

    I think if this match were played outside India, Srikanth wouldn't be over-excited but would be able to play more normally at his high level and minimise those wild swings.
