    There is no chance in hell Sonia will upset Saina.

    MAS team manager is a joke, they think this is a good move? The citizen will damn well flamed BAM after this.

    Do they really think Soniiah will upset saina?
    She is very experienced. She may up her game at right time.
    After the interval, she simply did not let her opponent to get a single point.

    Bruh chill, they WON silver, not lose GOLD.

    Who is to say Goh/Lai would've won in XD, to me GLY was fine alright, it's just the India duo surfed on the momentum when they had their second wind. Also, Ashwini has always performed out of our capabilities in team events.
    Besides I wasn't least bit concerned when Sonnia was putting pressure on Saina, I don't think MAS WD couledve won the last match. It might have been different with Vivian/KWW, with the new partnership, nah not sure.

    That's just your assumption, don't think that Chan/Goh is better than Goh/Lai at all.

    Bad move by BAM caused everything to fall apart in the first place.

    They should be ashamed of this silver, a memento of failure.

    well, when nation is at stake indians do perform more than what is expected out of them.
    silver sindhu in olympics and wc.
    bronze for saina in wc.
    recent sudirmancup performance, who expected india to trump indonesians in the group and losing close matches to danes?
    also, almost heroics of srikant in olympics against LD, undeniable that KS had LD on the ropes.

    Come on bud, you win some you loose some, they gave their best it's just sometimes not everything goes according to your plan.

    Dissapointed? yes it's natural, "ashamed"? Cut 'em some slack
    Also, they went by the script, silver for #2 seeds, every tourney is a new one, which starts from level 0, you can't sit and "plan" stuff according to previous records.

    PS: my assumptions? What else can we do, who knows what would've/wouldn't have happened if the team organizers not "screwed" up (according to you).
    Did you predict GLY/CPS coming from that long injury and still perform way above their conditions, when it mattered the most, Olympics? No but they did, organizers gave benefit of the doubt to them considering they have higher accolades at major stages and are more experienced.
    It was a risk, sometimes they pay the dividends sometimes they don't.

    third game, half break-LD on the ropes-ks has a panic attack-finds sidecourt way too often-tries defence-loses stamina-LD steps up.

    That's why I said, Lin Dan had Srikanth on the ropes.
