the draw for Men's team
Jiang Su vs Guang Dong
Fu Jian vs Liao Ning
Jiang Su vs Hu Nan
Guang Dong vs Hu Bei
Jiang Su vs Guang Dong:
last national game, Jiang Su grabbed gold medal and Guang Dong got the silver. Both of them are still very strong. This is supposed to be the final but unfortunately Guang Dong lost to Fu Jian in the round robin.
Jiang Su is strong in both men's and women's, and also strong in both singles and doubles. Anyhow, Guang Dong has its chance at Wang Zhenming and Fu Hai feng, these two guys are very good. Veteran WU Yuyong and Chen QQ could also steal one victory if lucky enough.

Guang Dong 3:0 Hu Bei
Jiang Su vs Guang Dong in the women's final
Hong Kong women team lost again to Liao Ning, now Hong Kong is the one of two worst team in the knock out stage. Imagine that: with top player in the world ranking, Zhou Mi, WR1 and WR9: Wang Chen and WR14 Yip Pui Yin. Hong Kong is supposed to be the 2nd best in the World! , but in China national games, Hong Kong has to fight with fujian for the 11th place in 12 teams.
The 2nd best team in the world = the worst or 2nd worst out of 12 teams in a country

Jiangsu wins men's badminton team tourney final berth at National Games
www.chinaview.cn 2009-10-11 20:52:50 Print
QINGDAO, East China, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- The first final berth of men's badminton team tournament went to Jiangsu at the 11th National Games here on Sunday.
Jiangsu, men's team defending champion, meeting almost no challenge from Guangdong, runner-up at last Games, wrapped up the victory of 3-0.
Li Yu of Jiangsu defeated Wang Zhengming of Guangdong in two straight sets 21-14, 21-15.
"Though Wang is younger than me, I still tried to challenge him no matter physically or mentally." Li explained his win.
First doubles match between Cai Yun-Xu Chen and Fu Haifeng-Zhu Lihua was highlighted as Cai and Fu are a golden pair in the Chinese national team. The duo ended the drought in 2006 that China has never won a men's doubles world title since 1989 and lifted the title again in 2009.
The fist set proved to be a tough one as Cai and Xu notched up the game 21-19. However in the second, Cai and Xu led the way and never looked back to secure a 21-12 victory, putting Jiangsu 2-0 ahead.
"I am so familiar with Fu. Whoever will win depends on his form," said Cai." Since Fu, Xu and I are all national shuttlers, our strategy is to play against Zhu. We won the first set thanks to some good luck but in the second, we are better in terms of overall strength."
Xu added: "Fu is good at backcourt play so we tried to play a frontcourt match and dominate the net."
Fu was satisfied with their performance. "I thought Zhu and I cannot cooperate well but actually we did a good job. Cai and Xu are clearly better than us so we just tried to play our best."
Chen Jin, world No. 4, wrapped up Jiangsu's 3-0 victory by frustrating Zhu Pengxiang 21-15, 21-15.
"I had no pressure as we have won the first two matches," said Chen. "We might meet Fujian in the final. We have to make solid preparation for that as they are balanced both in singles and doubles."

Hubei wins last berth of women's badminton semifinals at National Games
QINGDAO, East China, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- Hubei beat Zhejiang to win the last berth of semifinals of women's badminton team event at the China's 11th National Games here on Saturday.
The other berths went to Guangdong, Hunan and Jiangsu.
After two losses in first singles and first doubles matches, Zhejiang was put on the cliff as another loss meant they cannot reach the semis. Then current women's singles world No. 1 Wang Lin defeated Chen to earn one point for Zhejiang. However, former world champion Gao Ling and Wei Yili dashed the hopes of Zhejiang by pipping Li Xiao and Shen Xiaobo, helping Hubei to the victory of 3-1.
"As our doubles cannot challenge Hubei, three singles players are under great pressure," Wang explained their loss. Olympic runner-up Xie Xingfang outplayed Cheng Wen of Hunan 21-15, 21-13, putting Guangdong on the right track for the 3-0 victory.
"I have been taking up systematic training with Guangdong team," the 28-year-old veteran said. "We are working hard to play each match no matter how strong our rival is."
Apart from Xie, Guangdong also has Olympic women's doubles champions Yang Wei and Zhang Jiewen. They are eyeing for the team champion to better their second placing in last National Games.
Hosts Shandong notched up their first match by frustrating Fujian 3-2. Liu Jie, serving as Shandong's first singles player, said: "We played a better match than before."
Shanghai, who reserved big names like Wang Yihan and Zhu Lin, lost to Liaoning 3-0. Jiangsu, who has secured a semi berth, gave way to People's Liberation Army 3-0.

2009 China 11th National Games Results
2cents, Thank you for the Results Updates.
It's a surprise that Jiangsu and Guangdong are so consistent in the Mens and Womens events most of the time (in getting into the semi-finals).
However, from what is observed, probably Fujian could win the Mens, and Guangdong the Womens.
Talking about the subject on top ranking Hong Kong women players in the world, it's because they are participating in more tournaments to earn their ranking points.
It is unfortunate that many good women players from various provinces of China couldn't get a chance to participate in more world tournaments to show their skills and to improve their world rankings. This problem is caused by them not being able to make it into the national team. Even those who could make it into the national team, they are restricted to participate in fewer tournaments.
It is hope that one day China would increase their team size/structure and allow more good provincial players to participate in more world tournaments. A good example to follow is: How Russian women players can dominate the top rankings in World Tennis.

For women's, Guang Dong seems stronger than Jiang Su in doubles, but Jiang Su is stronger in singles. And also Guang Dong has the same player as 4 years ago but not as strong as that time. All their best players: Xie XF, Yang Wei, Zhang JieWen, are half retired. They did not win 4 years ago at their peak time, how to manage to win this time.
10-11-2009, 08:09 PM #85
by the way, in the round robin, Fu Jian advanced to final by edging Guang Dong 3:2 in the last match in the group, if Fu Jian lost to Guang Dong, it would be eliminated from final 4.
On the other hand, Jiang Su has an easy 3:0 against Guang Dong in semifinal.
