    Man! They got creamed! :eek: NO MERCY!!!!! GGGGgggrrrrhhh!!!

    Me and my partner were talking about our stand against international players. We discussed that we'd get atleast 3 points against them. But if the representative of Armenia (I'm assuming they're the best in their country) couldn't get points, how much more us.

    21-0 or 0-21 can be achievable if you or your opponent is actaully sandbagging the matches ROFL!!

    Most B level player (in Canada at least) conduct too many errors in general. Playing 21 flawless rallies is too difficult.

    However, 21 -0, 21 - 0 is definitely possible. If anyone can appoint me to play 2 sets of single with LD. :D

    I did 21-0 before, me and a girl against 2 guys.
    My girl could serve and was good at the net. Those guys could only clear back and couldn't return my smash. I always thought that I was C level, but maybe that makes me at least B level? :confused:

    Agreed - if it looks like being a complete drilling I will usually dial it back and make a game of it (at least in doubles). More straight lifts, in other words.

    i can see why it would be considered rude but i agree that there is no rule that says you have to give your opponent points in a game.i know its a nice thing to give people points and be nice but in reality im not that kind of guy to be overly nice during matches in a tournament unless for some reason im feeling really really great that day. i remember i played a tournament and i beat a guy 21-1, 21-0 i wasnt actually trying to end the rallies fast or anything just playing a simple consistant game and shots that wernt easy for him to get to or that he couldnt play a good reply off of and just so happens i won the 2nd game 21-0. but the amount of hate that i got afterwards for doing that but i wasnt going around bragging that i did it or anything its just the fact that i wasnt "nice" to the person for not giving them points in a tournament.

    that would also be very difficult to keep LD motivated enough to concentrate for whole 21points.

    Unless u bet USD1million per point with him...

    in that case, u only need any national players from China, Msia, Indonesia, korea or Denmark will do. You dont need lD

    I umpired a match at the USAB Jr. Nationals U19 GD. 2nd set was 21-0. I was also lucky to umpire a 30-29 game in that tournament for U15 BS.

    At the club league-level, I can achieve this against the majority of people a couple of years younger than me, and I have also done it twice in a tournament (one of those was a hilarious game where my opponent served, I smashed, I served, my opponent returned, I smashed, etc. until the end of the game). Therefore I suggest that it is not an incredible feat at the county/club/district level. However, for the world elite level, it would be amazing to see something like this occur.

    I played a 21-0 in my XD match last few weeks. :D My partner and I kept laughing after the match, because we can't believe we played a 21-0.:eek:
