    is anyone afraid that once fu/cai and JJS retires, badminton will be not as exciting to watch?

    True True, I wont disagree with that.

    But to see him collecting so many silver and bronze from WC, OG and AG is just shocking

    Fu-Cai will still be around another two years.

    Lin Dan the same. JJS yes he will retire..too many injuries carried with him.

    still i dont really want China to sweep at the same time because badminton under such a bad light...

    After this, people in public generally sees badminton as sports ruined and monopolised by China.

    Alexei Smirnov is a strong player, possessing the Russian charm

    BoMo is the better pair to stop Cai/Fu. CJS/LYD is too gentlemen for Cai/Fu.

    It's the way you post repentedboy. That's why there were others who got offended with some of your posts.

    For CJS(still not used to the new initials, so used to typing JJS), erm, not shocking actually, if one follows this pair's career.
    All throughout their partnership, their form is brilliant with winning lots of SS titles, when it comes to majors, somehow for some reason, they wouldnt win the title, except for the AE
    Kido/Hendra is good at doing well in majors, Fu/Cai are consistent with focus on majors, Boe/M are the dangerous ones who do well in Europe.

    JJS/LYD usually beat Mo/Bo convincingly. Today, the Kor pair were often scrambling all over the court. It's a big contrast to the usual JJS-raining down the smashes and LYD-ruling the net.

    so saddd!! Somehow they lost their attacking play and the Danes got their ankle and slow smash game going... sad

    I bet Fu/Cai will win in 2 sets with one set MB/CM <15
    On the other hand, when did these pairs play last time? They never met, it seems!!

    Annoying badminton olympics for me... scandal, 3 WS to win the medals, LYD/CJS no final vs CY/FH, Saina no final, no Danes in the final in the MX event... :/ but that is just personal preferences.
    Still way to many CHN winners.

    Koo/Tan didn´t get into the game vs CHN unfortunatly, I think there was a chance, but as cool as they are today they seemed a bit under pressure and not as relaxed as usual.

    Regardless of the outcome, I rate Wang Yihan and Zhao Yunlei the best players of the the tournament.

    well, it's the bitter truth isn't it. CHN does clearly rule the sport.

    Cai Fu will be so relieved to hear the results. It's wont be easy to beat the Danes but i can say their chances are so much higher.

    OT:Just imagine that, the Swedish 46-yr-old Jorgen Persson actually beat GER Timo Boll, the best of ROW ex-CHN, in the team championship though in the end GER team prevailed. I think he must be the oldest Olympian to cause a major upset!
