    Australia cheated? my ass


    When NZ played Uganda one of the NZ players had a highly illegal serve that was not picked up.

    The taller out of the two was doing it. Striking the shuttle at the height just below his chest!

    The top-most part of the head was above the handle.

    Most illegal serve I have ever seen and he got away with it every time!

    He was a tall player already........why serve like that.

    Man the umpires need a kick in the ass for letting that slip.......the ugandans did not even complain.

    Biggest load of rubbish illegal serve I have ever seen!

    Anyone else who was there see that?

    Not biased against NZ but that guys serve was just crap! Absolute cheat serve!

    Yeah dude this is what I am on about! Mate that was a ridiculus serve height! How could umpires let that go........everytime?

    i know AUS spent alot of money in their national sports program and expected a lot back so the athletes are really pressured to win. When the pressure and maybe money is high enough, cheating is not a surprise. Anyway, NZ (bellingham) shouldn't blow up because he just bot in AUS's trap.

    The Kiwis played at the Canadian Open a few months ago...I also remember Craig Cooper serving almost from chest height lol...at the time i just thought it looked bizarre. I dont recall any service judge penelizing him though during any of the matches where I was line judging.

    Yes, it is even more bizarre that he doesn't get penalised. So he will just continue to serve that way.

    I haven't been very impressed with the umpires, service judges etc. of the games.

    But yeah, I really hope Craig Cooper, John Gordon etc. improve their attitudes, they're giving us Kiwis a bad name .

    maybe the service judges themselves should draw a thick line on players' shirts prior to each game around the waist? That should make it easier to spot

    Cooler it's true our Government does put alot of funding into sports however I dont believe badminton is one of them. I know people who play at state level and I've seen the state training sessions here in South Australia. It's nothing special really the lack of interest and funding Government or commercial really shows. I also dont believe the AIS has a badminton program, all the sports we do do well at people can develop at the AIS. Our swimmers, gymnasts, cricketers, cyclists, basketballers etc get special government scholarships to train at the AIS but that is obviously not the case with badminton which is apparent in Tania's case and the people I know. Maybe if badminton popularity/success things might change... fingers crossed!

    well about this drive serve many of my friends have been using this.it does get frustrating at times but its really risky.for top players it is never advisible to do it due to the fact that the players reflexes are quick and can push the shuttle into an attacking position.so i can only say that you just have to get use to this kind of serve from young.and slowly beat it because tactically there is no fault with it unless you hold the racket over the waist.

    Totally agree the shuttle were clearly way to slow, some of the singles matches were clearing competitions and even in the mixed the shuttle couldn't be put away.

    Yes, there were a couple of girls clearly with double action on serve.

    not sure about asia, but over here, everyone joins in the swearing. maybe it's the western violent nature coming through my doubles partner has a tendency to play a lift, then say "SIT!!!!!!!!" and if it goes out, followed by a loud, "F***!!!!!!!!" everyone just laughs...

    he's built like a tank, so i'm not sure if it'd help me but i have noticed its usually, the better the player, the better his temper.
