    Default So who wants to see Taufik not playing?

    Indra, I have on good judgement the shuttle was in. The linewomen made an initial mistake in calling it out and she corrected herself. It's OK to correct your judgement so long as you do it quickly.

    The crowd were calling the shuttle out. I think it was to *heighten* the anticipation of a good match! Unfortunately, it went wrong for the crowd. Taufik went off to a chorus of boos.

    1) Taufik shaking hands with LinDan giving him the match (I thought Taufik was just trying to say 'no hard feelings')

    2) A second *discussion* with the line judge

    3) What's Taufik doing with the *V* sign? Looks bad.

    4) how about some spectacles?

    5) the tournament referee getting involved again

    the 'v' sign actually meaning her eyes... being a linesmen or woman for taufik's match can be very sway sometimes. haha

    6) a final shake of the hands to a confused Lin Dan

    7) even Li Yong Bo is confused

    8) TH walks off applauding to the audience. When the audience suddenly realise he really is leaving and not intending to come back, the volume of dissent grows considerably!

    That's right! It can mean the eyes. But it looks bad The camera never lies, and I haven't added anything to the photos to incriminate anybody!

    9) Lin Dan being asked by reporters what is his reaction to everything.

    10) Taufik and coach leaving the stadium

    its a rude gesture like meaning "is something wrong with your eyes?"
    then cover it,

    lin dan helpless blurred... still expected this match to be match of the round, didnt expected it to end at such a tragic state..

    OK, I 'm going back to the stadium for the evening session. Red also has some good pics. Hope he does post them in this thread.

    It really did put a dampner for the crowd, especially when the KJ vs Sony match was really close in the 2nd set.

    Well while most people seem to only care about whether or not they get to see a great match, I admire Taufik for not letting the crowd, or anyone else influence his decision. If he is not happy with the line calling, then he doesn't have to play. He's not playing his matches for our enjoyment, he's doing it for himself, as would pretty much anyone.

    I still would like to have seen the match played to completion though . I'm not for or against what Taufik did, it's his decision.
