    There was also a WD match involving Corrales & Marin V German i think. The umpire seemed to take a dislike to the Spanish girls and on a few occasions after their opponents killed the shuttle he shouted out yess! Then called the score. It was quite bizarre.
    It seems like you are concentrating more on umpire's actions than the match... Just kidding..

    Off-topic here. What do you think of low serves of Danish player Christinna Pedersen. She also does this forward movement as preparatory move.

    She's fine. It's only a preparation as you said, not part of her stroke.

    But her partner Fisher, that's another different story. His so called preparation seems to be part of the stroke.

    If you take the rules literally, Christina's seves are probably wrong.

    (I would never call a fault of course...)
