    I think you misunderstood. You could still win from the bad end. Just that it is more energy sapping to do it since it is a little harder to control clear from the bad end. If SS gets defeated with huge score, it probably suggests that he was not as fit as LD on that day or he just simply got outplayed. I don't think you could conclude on how one performance is based on their no. of 'smash winners' recorderd in TS.

    I assume the bad end to mean the draft is against LD favouring him in attack. SS has to be careful not to hit the bird too hard.

    On Court 1, Porntip Buranaprasertsuk vs. Cheng Shao Chieh. CSC is ranked 15th in the world, while Porntip is ranked 16th. The head to head record is 1-1, with the most recent match won by Porntip at the 2011 Korea Open SSP (22-20, 21-15).

    In the rubber, LD scored 9 smash winners against only 4 from SS. I suppose at the change-over, SS must have attacked more if the draft is against him.

    On the other hand SS managed 8 net winners against 6 from LD.

    So in the end, the attacker emerged on top.

    With such a huge ranking and experience difference, it must be a foregone conclusion for many. It has to be "Tak Boleh" this time!

    Yes we normally have a soft spot for the underdog.

    So far they have exceeded all expectations already!

    But alas, the Chinese won 24-22.

    Let's hope the younger Msian pair can continue to mount their impressive attacks as in the first game.
