    In case you wonder why an european belgian MS player has a chinese Yuhan Tan name, it is because his dad is a Chinese Indonesian.

    Yeah, actually you're right. There isn't anything inherently manly with her behavior at court. Either way, I just realized they met two times recently (I haven't been up to date) and Carolina won both. One match was three sets at least, the one at Thomas Cup.

    It's just incredibly bad, arrogant behaviour....nothing gender- or culture-specific about it, it's just the way she is I guess.

    :D I just watched it on the local stream but reading back I just realized it wasn't live :D. They tend to show one court live and later on a repeat of some matches (from other courts) and apparently this was one of them :oops:

    Because it will give different points ranking for the player/pair that finished in 3rd/4th place of the group stage.

    For example for double category, group stage:
    3rd place will receive 4800 points
    4th place
    will receive 3000 points

    The revelation so far has to be Mateusiak and Zieba. Mateusiak is the oldest player on court ..... yet still manages to top his group of death.
