It's best to allow losing opponents to leave the court for their locker rooms ASAP

More instances of good vibes
Taufik and Chen Hong, Asian Badminton Championship 2007
KKK/TBH and MK/HS, Asian Games 2010 finals
KO 2011 KT and Chen Long is a recent game played in the most friendly and sporting spirit. Tago has been consistently a very, very sporting character!
The ongoing love-fest between TH and LCW of course
Strangely, I have noticed that generally the love between opposing girls is much more restrained, for some reason. Wonder why?

Just an idea!
In case of uncontrolled outburst of joy whenever one wins,
this particular player should thank and congratulate the other player before the match starts

Always have a handshake with your opponents after the match
I was coaching some new trainees and gave them a game of Doubles to play at the end of the session. When the match was over, the losers didn't go to the net for handshakes with the winners.
I said to them: "Always have a handshake with your opponents after the match". They were puzzled and said is it necessary?
When I said: "If you have no opponents, you won't have a game to play, so say thanks to them for playing".
They thanked me for reminding them, and said that I am correct that we should never forget to give thanks for a game (whether they have won or lost).
I felt quite happy that they understood why we need to have the handshake.

This is such an important topic. I would think this is common sense? Hand shake and or tht..... Having said tht, hand shaking is not part of the Asian culture eg, the Japanese will bow. If you go meet a Taiwanese, Japanese or even some malaysians, the first thing they do is to hand over their name card. wht the top professional players do on tv will almost certainly be imitate by us sooner or later. some players will play against a regular opponents so many times on tour until they befriended each other but they still shake hand before a match. Tht to me is just a formality. It's essential to shake hands even in social matches. Just FYI, there are many golf clubs tht require new members to attend 1-day class in etiquette before full membership is given. At the end ofvthe day, it's not just good sportsmanship, it's just plain good manners. Everyone esp the experienced ones have the responsibility to educate the new comers.

personnally I find that at the end of a professional tournament if the they don't celabrate wildly it is a total anti-climax. Why bother playing if your not that bothered and robotically walk over to your opponent and shake hands. Also because it's a final they have time on the podium/prize giving to thank opponent and show respect if he doesn't hang about to do it on court. If in other rounds just shake hands unless it is an epic game and the underdogs have came through in this case it is complimentary for them to celebrate so emotionally rather than shaking hand immedietaly. You are pretty morbid if you begrudge people celebrating imo.

In soccer/football these days, players shake hands before the start of a match so that at the end, if anything like wild celebrations happen, the loser is not left standing. The option is also available for the winner to approach the loser to shake hands.

Personally, if I won a match in a BWF Ranking tournament, I would probably celebrate loudly, roll on the ground for a while, then shake hands, cause I'd be that happy!

Thanking others first is more important
craigandy, so you are talking about professional tournament.
I can see your point about "if they don't celabrate wildly it is a total anti-climax".
However, I still think thanking others first is more important; and it should be in this order of priority;
2. Umpire, Service judge and Lines judges.
3. General spectators.
4. Your supporters, coaches and teammates.
Your supporters, coaches and teammates could be always with you, but without the first 3 (above), there won't be a match/event to celebrate.
Besides, some of the first 3 (above) would like to celebrate with you too. Otherwise, they would just say - "Job done; Let's go home".
