    Yes her reaction was inappropriate but from the TV angle, there were at least two clearly bad line calls against her which is never easy to handle with when you are in an olympic final...

    Anyway, this was a great match for sure, we said before the final that it would be THE match of the decade... and I think we weren't disappointed!!

    yeah sure. but imho, it's always wise never to create scenes esp when concerning bad line calls. because the umpire will always win (xcept in mia's case.. i don't know why the umpire gave in...)as they respect the linesmen's call, albeit sleeping linesmen.

    one thing i don't understand is how linesmen in tennis tournaments can judge with such accuracy; even when the ball lands just a strand away from the line, they could perceive. as compared to how badminton linesmen can misjudge shuttlecock fallen wide/long off the court by a stretch.

    You must let eMule running longer (you won't connect instantly to anyone as there are queue systems), once you have downloaded enough (approx 9 megs I think) to start uploading yourself you will see that the download will increase speed!

    Well, I find that badminton linesmen are generally better and make less mistakes than tennis linesmen... (but that's only a subjective view)

    it's easier to gauge line accuracy in badminton than tennis.
    1. tennis ball deforms and so the rolling footprint on surface is much bigger
    2. tennis linejudge is farther away and has longer line to monitor.

    AAH!! good reasoning. so there really is no excuse for baaaaaaad line calls by badminton linesmen if even the tennis linesmen can do an ok job about them...
