    Unfortunately not all the evil forces were defeated on that day, Nehwal gets to talk with lots of hot air from now on using her bronze medal lift her nose up high.

    Whatever it is, China will always be ready to put these sore losers and arrogant people back in their place.

    Oh just let it go you Saina-haters. It's the other countries fault to not do anything against the chinese in WS as well. At least she has beaten them in the past and has the ability to do it in the future too. She is still young and will gain maturity and experience. Also it's not her fault that Wang Xin is injured.

    I certainly wanted the Chinese to beat the Danes but even I think that's a bit harsh calling them the evil forces :p

    It's not only her who is arrogant but the Indian media as well. If you read the sports news all over India you will see how hard they try to justify Saina's walkover as a worthy 'win' and how she deserved the bronze medal. It is truly disgusting and when I tried to give the slanted articles a more balanced view, they simply removed my post, can you believe it? So much for democracy and freedom of speech in India. The whole country is so desperate for a medal especially Saina; it is pathetic. You could see her eagerness when she went up to the umpire, after Wang Xin had already given up in G2, to pressure him to make the walkover call. The Indian media is always making the Chinese look like 'villains' and 'cheats' while the Indians are righteous and magnanimous. Deep in their hearts, they possess such great admiration and envy for the Chinese but they will never admit it - and i think that is their true weakness. I honestly believed Wang Xin would be able to shut the whole nation up if she hadn't been injured, but maybe it is a blessing in disguise for the Chinese to present the ignorant Indian mass a false sense of hope and arrogance for the next 4 years.

    Happy to see Fu & Cai finally take the Gold medal. Though I was sad that my favourite pair of Lee Yong Dae and Chung/Jung Jae Sung didn't get through to the final :( I think they would have given a much more dynamic, exciting and closer game. It certainly felt like a bit of an ant-climax in the arena after the singles match, though that could be just me? I think the Danes put up an okay fight, but Fu & Cai seemed more in control.

    Bah. Watching the match, and glad I wasn't there.....I would've screamed at Boe by 18:13 in the first. Getting fooled by flick serves because he is SLOW and GUESSES where the serve is going, and then complaining about CY moving his body side to side before the serve (the first time I saw that way of serving was Lars Paaske - so it couldn't have been unfamiliar to Boe???)....and then the way he shouts in his opponents' faces every time he wins a rally -.-
    Anyway, very concentrated effort by CY/FHF. CY looked like he wanted to strangle one of the Danes at times - but managed to keep his cool :D

    Congrats to CY and FHF, but I didn't really enjoying watching this final, especially after the MSF. No really good sustained rallies for my taste. I wish they had a speed radar, because it seemed like the bird was too fast because I have never seen the Chinese struggle so much on smash defense, not that the Danes don't smash well but usually it take more than one or two smashes to break them down.

    I just had to post and say how much I hate the Danes' on court behaviour. They are always hyper aggressive who stare down and/or verbally abuse their opponents whenever they win a point. Boe's delay tactics always rubs me the wrong way. But having said all this, I have a feeling they are better off the court.

    And agree with many people here who said that Denmark did China a favour by beating the Koreans. It would have been a much tougher final (and probably a better match also!)

    This has always stuck me as one of the most interesting things about sports such as badminton vs rowing or sprints. In competitions against 6-8 others, people seem pretty happy with bronze and silver. Whereas it really touched my heart to see Lee Chong Wei's watery eyes (reminded me of Dong Jiong losing to Larson and weeping in 1996) after getting silver.

    I do wonder if it's because in such versus sports, the defeat is between just you and your opponent?

    Also, I'm just curious about that supposed bad behaviour of the Danes. I stopped watching international badminton around 2009 and only just started watching again so haven't seen them play much. What sort of stuff do they get up to that's given them bad rep to some people in these forums?

    Quick thought on the MD Gold match..

    ..what a difference it was in terms of intensity after the heart-pounding and nerve-wrecking MS Final match..Yes, the match could've been much better..

    Both pairs tried to play more of a fast, flat, net controlled approach but turned out to be more of an error-filled 2nd game..Not interesting..

    Perhaps it would've been a much better match if it was played between the KOR and CHN...

    But congrats to CY & FHF for winning their last missing major title; and at the same time they should give a big thank you to the Danes for clearing the hurdle by beating CJS & LYD..

    One more title missing : Asian Games ...that is a really difficult tournament to win. Even Tony Gunawan and Kim Dong Moon never won it in MD.

    They are the greatest MD pair ever anyway, even with the AG title missing. No one else has won 3 WC titles, they have 4....2 Olympic medals, 2 AE championships and countless SS/GP titles....and dominating for 7 years whenever they played - apart from Lee/Jung no one could stand up to them....
