    WSX deserves to lose, the way she's been playing these two weeks. Saina just hangs in there after unexpectedly dropping G2 and comes out on top finally.

    I think the title is Saina's to lose tomorrow, irrespective who she plays.

    Looking forward to LYB's decision, who is another one to go to AG. WYH or WSX, maybe he can sent Liu Xin.

    LXR and WSX are good choice.
    If you watched match Lui xin vs TTY in Japan open , I don't select her.

    Yeah, ran out of fuel on the 3rd set. Hope LYB will sent Sun Yu and Han Li, and let other has a chance to get Gold. :cool:

    LXR and WSX are a good choice, but if there is a miracle and LXR not in the final. It is very hard for China to get gold. WSX is a wonderful player, but sometimes I feel she is miss something, maybe smashing.:) haha. I mean she is a good player, but she is just not yet a true champion.

    Quite obvious where her feelings and sympathy lie. She didn't give Hu Yun the benefit of the doubt last week. Imagine if it were WSX who took an 'injury' breather , then not only GC but several BCers here would seize at the opportunity to jump all over her.

    With WYH in indifferent form and WSX off-peak, CHN at the moment can only count on LXR. I'm afraid Liu Xin, Han Li, Sun Yu or Yao Xue are all not reliable, not yet.

    An encouraging victory for Fuchs/Michels, they live up to my expectations so far. A good chance they may lift the trophy tomorrow.I'll be rooting for them.

    Carolina Marin is through to the final but I still feel Saina has the upper hand. Anybody managed to catch that match on livestream (not available to me)? I mean how did they play, esp Marin's game.

    There is a possibility of 10 finalist from 10 different nation, if that happen, will it be the 1st time for the SS level?

    When WSX is in her element, her placement shots are so good, moving her opponent all over the court forcing them to twist and turn as she piles on the pressure to breaking point, that coupled with her amazing retrieving ability allows her to frustrate and annoy even the best attacking players. Unfortunately I don't see much of that from WSX of late; on the contrary, she is the one being pushed around more often than not.

    Well, WSX has to lift her game, regain that special ability which is her forte, if she is to make a successful quest for the upcoming WC and Asian Games. It's really all up to her, not even her coaches can do much if she's not ready for it, considering she's a mature,experienced player already.

    Lee/Yoo's unbeaten run continues these three weeks and looks set to take the title tomorrow. Lifting the ban on Lee YD (and Kim SR) has been a boon for KOR.

    lol... i know he`s trying to redeem himself after a 6 month ban, but does lyd have to celebrate every single win by sliding on his knees on the ground yelling c`mon (even if it`s a qf or sf match) like it`s a final...

    however, they did well against the mas, who petered out after mid g1

    It's better skill, Simon's, versus superior physicality, Tommy's. Who will prevail eventually ?
