    Li Xuerui today is a pale shadow of herself. To be honest, she played way below her normal standard, even if she is not injured and equalized in G2, unlikely she would take G3, unless and until she overcomes her nerves and steps up her game. Such a wasted talent.

    Wonder why not so many tall W's players emerge when we already see players with explosive attack like Tine and Marin can break the Chinese Ws. And why no Chinese players with explosive character start emerge?

    If LXR forfeit than for the second time Ws in olympic have a forfeit bronze medal match. I really love LXR, but if it's risky she shouldn't do bronze medal match.

    Its so hard to believe to be honest. its almost feels like china is losing on purpose. I'm not suggesting they are. its just so hard to believe.

    Marcus Ellis reminds me of Kevin Sanjaya. Jumping all around the court.

    Saina even hugged WX and showed concern, and she was called arrogant before. But CM is redefining arrogance in WS.

    Don't crack Langridge-- Ellis need you to captain and protect the front while he single-handedly takes down 2 Chinese players!!!'

    The Chinese have smelt blood and are going to target you, Langridge!

    Can't agree any more. I couldn't believe my eyes how easily she was getting intimidated by the scream machine as if she was playing her first time. Her expressions told the same.

    Chai Biao/ Hong Wei - the GOAT pair should show their might sooner rather than later.

    I think the mental coach has trained her to see her opponent as sheer enemy, so no feelings at all. CM is behaving on a purely professional basis.

    Hong Wei is an absolute freak. No wonder he broke my TV screen once with a 407 kmh smash.

    I think Zhang Nan / Hong Wei is a pair I want to see.
