    At match point second set its not entirely Saina fault but WYH really gutsy attack from the backcourt down the line that give her the score to level 20-20. That is tough shot to pull specially when you are down 1 match point.

    Agree. They had beat some tough WD before reaching the final. The Taiwanese pair, Malaysia pair and Japan ranking 4 pair. (Though the ranking in WD is so laughable)

    Hoping they can improve and not only ONe tournament wonder.

    If I am not wrong, Ge/Gu lost to their own teammates during Olympics qualification. Maybe to give their teammates some points to qualify.

    wow, bad guys, super-villians won the MD

    wow, bad guys, super-villains beat good guys, friends in WS

    wow, the very bad guys, ultra super-villains beat good , quite charismatic guys in MS 21-11 21-7

    wow, in WD the very good guys, ultra super-heroes with awesome skills lost to bad guys, super-villains in WD 21-12 21-10

    wow, in XD the very good guys, ultra super-heroes with awesome skills were defeated by bad guys, super-villains

    Why in every events, (very) bad guys, super villains always won while all good guys ultra super heroes always lost :confused::confused::confused:.

    By the way, next time, I will definitely use your good guys/bad guys, heroes/villains categorization to do my PAW because it's 100% to predict!

    China again proved they are the dominant force in world badminton.
    with 4 out of 5 titles no other country is able to challenge them.

    - nehwal was simply no match for the more skillful and intelligent wang yihan. simply smashing too much in the 1st game was a schoolgirl's mistake. but then if nehwal had a variety of shots then she doesn't have to use this tactic.
    - peter gade is a spent force against the no.2 player in the world. think he shld better retire.
    - natsir/tantowi - showed a lot of potential but finally succumbed to the better tactics and power of the superior Chinese pair.

    To say Nehwal was "simply no match for Wang Yihan" is a gross mis-exaggeration" of her abilities when Nehwal was unlucky to win game 2 and the match, losing a very close 21-23. Actually she should have won. To me WYH is awkward and relied on her bull strength a lot. She has not learned to use her non-racket arm as balance for stability and it seemed so limp when she moved about.

    LCW is World No.1 and he has proven why in this IO. He accounted for Chen Long's loss in the semis. If you are thinking about LD being WR1, the IO made a mockery of LD when Sho Sasaki beat him conclusively in R2, 21-12, 21-18 in 38 min and went on to destroy another Chinese, Chen Jin the next day. WYH took 1hr 5min to defeat Nehwal.

    Imagine, CHN put up all their best MS players here and only Chen Long survived to the SF to surrender to LCW.

    but at least not that BORING as previously where you see 'red flags ( China)' in almost all 5 categories Semi Final line up..

    it used to be a minimum of 80% Chn vs Chn affair... or even more...:(

    Yup, once again no title for home players :(
    Hopefully it will not repeat at world-meet next August, last two editions we returned home empty handed.

    I wonder what LCW spoke to PG during the handshake after his win. Probably to console him I guess. Anyone knows? In fact I realized LCW always does that when he wins.

    "Empire Strikes Back"... the ultra-villains and super-villains got their revenge... After some awesome drama and well-written script, the heroes [INA players] were bruised, beaten, forced to retreat... :p

    I remember those days. It was quite incredible how strong the men's doubles were.
