Is astro broadcasting the MVp cup day 2?
i don't quite understand the 11-8 scoreline mentioned above. if there are 3 games a day, and 1, 2 and 3 points respectively for each game won on each day, surely that means only a total of 18 points. ie. 3 points on day 1, 6 points on day 2 and 9 points on day 3. how do we then get 11-8 which means that 19 points were on offer??!!??
yeah i think so..
Lin Dan vs. Niels Kaldau
Zhang Ning vs. Yao Jie
