    was sick yesterday and missed most of the semi.

    watched the XD between Joachim Fischer / Christinna Pedersen and Xu Chen / Ma Jin.

    looks like the Chinese have found holes after holes in the Danes' formation. first is the forehand of JF on defense. he is always late and always lift cross court making CP wide exposed to Xu Chen's smash.

    second is now MJ is returning JF's smashes like it was a smash defense drill. pinning either player at the backcourt with ease. adding to that the block returns are of much higher quality, that forces a lift or a weak net, in which they found pushing right at the opponent face gives the best result.

    the result is a major defeat of the formerly formidable pair by 21-17 / 21-8.
