    having fun? you obviously havent seen how intensive the match was!!
    obviously, LYD's best is not good enough. he needed a better XD partner and a more match fit MD partner for KOR to have any chance.

    come on, gals and guys......
    i dont think that Korea is totally relying on LYD to win the Sudirman Cup. as our master LB said, LYD has done his part and it was not his winning day.

    i am watching replay of RF vs RN. RN lost to RF straight set on a clay court.

    That's what I called a proper whitewash.
    Technically its a Whitewash.. but they didnt the final 2 matches in the Semis and Final. But yes i do agree... China is unbeatable.

I can see CHN will continue to dominate world badminton for awhile.
    ..Fu Hai Feng, Cai Yun and Zheng Bo are the veteran men's doubles players. I can see them hanging on for 2, maybe 3 more yrs. After that, i don't know which of their men's doubles players will rise to the top.
    LYD will continue to improve and mature. LHJ most likely will be replaced in the future.

YY is, IMHO, much better overall and especially at the net than LHJ.

    ..like i mentioned in the Finals thread, playing against CHN's XD pair is akin to playing against a Men's Doubles pair; in a way, it's almost unfair. For one, not only is Yu Yang more masterful @ the net, but just look & hear at how she clobbered the shuttle..

    How old is Fu Hai Feng? 24-25? Still quite young to be able to fight minimal London 2012. With lack competition in MD in his country, if he want, he can have a long career in MD.

    Cai Yun, the oldest - 29 yrs young
    Zheng Bo - will be 26 yrs young
    Fu Haifeng - 25 yrs young

    FuHF can play a few more yrs, but who will be his partner once Cai hangs it up (Cai will be 33 y.o. and FuHF will be 29 y.o come 2012 OG)??..

    LD said he is peaking now I watched the lcw vs ld in the SF, lcw has improved mentally and consistency, but ld had also improved too.

    Now, now, that will downplay the great tacticians that FHF/CY were in the match.

    When I say "having fun", I did not mean CY/FHF dressed in Hawaii shirt, laughing, joking, eating, having a vacation. What I meant, was that compare to KOR pair, they can be more mentally relaxed, as their allowed error margin is wider.

    Of course the match is intensive, as it's pretty much the last game for SC, and all the coaches are on the court side.

    I doubt it. They are under pressure not to drop a single match in the whole tournament. Conversely, the Koreans just have to do their stuff since there is no chance of a Korean championship. Likewise, Koreans are also under pressure to not go down flat.
