Chinese M/S has been wiped out!!!
Chen Hong, chinese last hope in M/S lost his game against Shun seung mo. What can I say? That proved that my previous thought about him is right. He is not stable enough to win a tough game.

Chen Hong did give his all and was really pumped up throughout the match but I think he lost out due to lack of variation to his game.
Although he has improved his defence against smashes (great to see him diving all around the court to retrieve them) his general set-up play is still the same:
Get to net
As the game progressed, Shon saw that and there were at least four occasions where Shon took a gamble and dived into Chen's net shot during net exchanges.
That was coming to the end of the game I guess it gave Chen a bit more to think about but he still persisted in playing the tight net shots under pressure that Shon would dive in and inevitably, be forced into making the error.
But yeah, I'm so disappointed that no Chinese men's singles player will get a shot at olympic gold... nor even bronze for the matter.
People have been saying that Xia Xian Ze should have been included, but it's easy to say that now. People should look more at Lin Dan and Bao Chun Lai, whom many believed would go a long way in the tournament.

The chinese results only confirm this, though we of course can't know how Xia Xuanze what have performed if he had been selected...

Well i guess.. they will have to perform well in the next Beijing Olympics...

China peak too early for Olympics, they can't succeed in both Thomas Cup and Olympics (well they could, but not easy) ... plus most of the Chinese players are still young, some of them are inconsistence like Bao and Chen Hong, too bad Xia didn't make it, he could've made a different.Korea seems to do very well so far ...

No Chinese in semis and a Thai in semis.
Noone would have predicted that.
Indonesians won medal in the last 2 Olympics despite winning Thomas Cup so I don't think it's a good excuse to say China men singles and doubles peaked too early

Wow, what dissapointment. Xia's prolly sitting at home in Zhejiang thinking "hey I coulda been in the semis already!"
Boonsak All the way for Thai glory!!
