    Ko Sung Hyun proves he is a worthy successor of Jung Jae Sung with a classic disguised drop shot at 13-11

    Ma Jin is sort of the John McEnroe of tennis. She doesn't rely on traditional power the way Zhao Yunlei does. She plays most of her interceptions as drop shots and blocks.

    Her style is totally unique and effective. There isn't another player that plays like her, and I personally find her to be the best women's front court player in the world. She doesn't hit hard and doesn't look that good, but her skills are very subtle, and very few people can figure out how to beat her at her game.

    That rally at 16-15 was simply amazing... the Koreans won it and deservedly got the momentum to win Game 1

    Koreans start off the 2nd set with style.. completely tricking the Malaysians..
    I can't see KKK/TBH winning this now that they lost the first set. Superior Korean fitness and attack

    You described it so well. Generally I agree with you, just hope she doesn't become a bit too predictable.

    The way korean pair is playing now is clearly showing that they are using all the power they have in their reserves. :). Tomorrow if Denmark pair advances, i think korean pair will struggle to get back to normal game due to lack of energy on court.:(

    I would disagree because the Malaysians made it very easy for them to win in the 2nd.
    Plus these two Koreans have one of the best fitness' in the world so fitness shouldn't be a problem. As always with Mogensen/Boe it is the tactical play that is always important. The Danish pair is inferior as a pair in skill, but they make up for it with the best tactical and service play in the world.

    WSX off to a good start. She looks like she's playing much better since the SSF.

    Lee Chong Wei is unstoppable.:) He really gives trouble to WWK it seems. But WWK is trying hard to come back.

    So much doubted from Mitani's shots, WSX just patient enough to capitalized on that
