    And what do you know? The Msians are now leading 7-4, without a single smash winner. The renowned Chinese duo seem to be making more unforced errors.

    That's when experience plays a part for the Chinese.

    True, true. It's hard not to lose your head when the score is 22-22 and you're up against a more experienced pair...

    The young Msians led 11-10 during interval. And they have not scored from a single smash yet! Are they with the draft?
    But they need to try more attacks to score points.

    Yes they are still neck-to-neck, 14-all, but Msia scored with 2 smashes.

    However now the Chinese have raced 2 points ahead, with one coming from their smash, all other winning points are more or less similar, except the Chinese seem to make slightly more errors.

    On Court 4, Hirokatsu Hashimoto/Noriyasu Hirata [8] vs. Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan [2]. The Indonesians are ranked 6th in the world, while the Japanese are ranked 10th. The head to head record is 3-0 in favor of MK/HS, with the most recent victory recorded at the 2011 All England SSP (21-14, 21-13).

    Yes, MAS MD seem to be better than their MS in general, judging by their international performance recently.

    I fear for the Indonesians as the Japanese have impressed in all departments.

    I must confess that this THA pair have played rather well of late. But against the Chinese, you can't let your guard down for even a second!
