    In the Olympics,rankings don't count for much, haven't we seen shocking upsets already (eg,Tago)? So I say, Bo/Mo has as good a chance as Cai/Fu to win gold. Wish them all the best.

    No. They will play until Asian Games 2014.

    Reason being: They together with Lin Dan want to help China win the Thomas Cup for the sixth time.

    For the bronze MD play-off, see who adjusts better mentally. I suspect CJS/LYD may be distraught to play a normal game, so KKK/TBH might just do it as they're not expected to come this far in the first place. Let's wait and see tomorrow.

    Tomorrow's bronze medal is the final chance for CJS to grab medal no matter the color. As long as he's consistent and giving hard ball to the opponent, LYD will be more relaxed and make less mistake. On top of that if LYD trick works against MAS pair then they will win.
    But I won't support them because of the racket they used. GO MAS pair. Go Yonex.

    Jung just wasn't on form today, such a shame since it's his last big tournament.

    Vislova looking best on the tv. . .
    Sad that we're focusing on that rather then the badminton.

    Wang Yihan on course to add the Final Star on her sleeve.

    World Cup
    World Championship
    Sudirman
    Uber
    ??????

    Against Mighty Li Xuerui, it's a tall order and Wang Yihan will be once again playing without any guidance.

    Yeah, but to say that CJS is retiring without any major title is not accurate(and I am saying it politely), since they have won the AE in 2008 & 2012. All the 4 pairs in the semis have won at least one of the majors - AE, WC, OG, AG(Asians)
