    Ellis receiving stance is so low. I am wondering if it's possible to exploit that with some flick serves.

    You are dead on correct. TWK often chokes and is easily baited by the opponent.

    i don't understand why every one is cursing yu yang, after all those niggling injuries she has it was bound to happen, the fault is of the selection committee who could have possibly formed a better pairing but when china formed tang and yu's partnership for rio it looked to me as li yongbo personally wanted yu yang to have another shot at gold hence he partnered her with a fitter and stronger tang yuanting in order to boost her chances for a gold but all in vain.

    Don't need to "explain"-- I has been watching since they played like 2 MS who don't even give each other service signals... They simply picked up or improved on whatever skills they lacked.

    This year's All England was first time they finally learned to play the front game, and shell-shocked their opponents-- you couldn't lift to them cos they were so tall that they just smash it down, and you couldn't do a front court push/flip because they would drive it right back.

    Don't think they will ever pick up the MAS/INA free-styling cross court flat pushes/drives, but if they do...heheh

    4 years ago that were YY and WXL's faults as instructed by LYB to cheat. Poor TYT to come to this though.

    LYB has to go. What a shameful shows for China Badminton squads. No gold from WD and MXD may finally put the last nails at the coffin...

    The "kim jong un" hair style is not working for the players. First Chai Biao was shown the door, then Yu Yang:p.
