Great jumping smash from Melati.
CHN regain control thru great placements.
then may Vita/Nadya do better in 2nd.... SEMANGAT!!!
Vita's judgement is impaired.
Me too Been waiting still no badminton :crying:
A few CHN errors bring the game back to life.
WXL whacks home.
starting only 19:30 :crying:
all games may be over by then!!???
That last rally forced CHN into disarray, but they still recovered to grab 3 pt lead at the break.
The INA pair trails 8-11 at the interval of the second set. Unless there's a miracle, the young CHN pair Ma Jin/Wang Xiaoli should take home their first senior title.
WXL very quick, flying from left to right.
i think there's no hope for ViNad . . . . .
runner up is good enough for tem.......
uh uh.... updating score plz.....^^
CHN are just too fast for INA, and Vita's court movement does not help.
It's just incredible how many young pairs CHN has in WD:
(1) Du Jing/Yu Yang -- Olympics Champions and aiming for the World Championships this year no doubt.
(2) Cheng Shu/Zhao Yunlei -- 4 titles since the Olympics last year and already World No 3 now.
(3) Ma Jin/Wang Xiaoli -- first senior title and I predict they will be sent to more SS tourneys, esp with Ma Jin's involvement in XD.
(3) Pan Pan/Tian Qing -- WR15 and no titles yet. IMHO, the weakest among the 4 pairs.
First match is wrapped up in just 27 mins as Ma Jin/Wang Xiaoli beat Vita Marissa/Nadya Melati 21-14, 21-13.
No point for me to wait anymore its 5.00 a.m here better go back to sleep
Hmm, quite a bit more strappings on Julia Wong's right leg. Might not be a good sign.
Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah will definitely want to win another title here in Hyderabad before their expected retirement from competitive badminton sometime late this year. Besides, they might have an outside chance of qualifying for their last World Championships this year.
From 2002 onwards, the MAS pair has only won 5 titles to date:
Malaysia Open 2004
Dutch Open 2005
Badminton Asia Championships 2006, 2007
Vietnam Open GP 2008
with a number of runner-ups:
French SS 2007 (lost to Fu/Cai)
Macau Open GP Gold 2007 (lost to Koo/Tan)
Singapore SS 2007 (lost to Fu/Cai)
Hong Kong Open 2003 (lost to Lee/Yoo), 2006 (lost to Kido/Hendra)
All England 2004, 2006 (both lost to Eriksen/Lundgaard-Hansen)
China Masters 2005 (lost to Fu/Cai)
China Open 2003 (lost to Paaske/Rasmussen)
Surely, they don't wanna end up as second-best again today
Julia looks pale.....
Pale,...?...too kan chiong..? or food P...........again..? or just a fair complexion
