    HHY too slow/tired for Tine today. she cannot cover the rear court fast enough.

    HHY had problem with WMC yesterday, she will have even bigger trouble today with Tine's power play.

    But Tine's smash is so effortless, like a child's play. She will prevail if she keeps the pressure on HHY.

    Tine Rasmussen is on course to march for her 3rd SS Finals now after taking the first set 21-17.

    Meanwhile, Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen are also ahead 21-13.

    in any case. Tine take 1st game 21-17.

    HHY just don't have the speed and power to counter Tine today. she managed to get close mainly due to Tine's errors.

    too bad as her style is quite graceful but too defensive.

    Look at it this way. CJ's win over LCW is good wake up call for him.It will make LCW buck up.
    As for Choong/Lee,their biggest problem is the closing.They need to train specifically on that.(LCW used to have that problem but not anymore).They can learn from LYD who took all the risks in aggression and won.
    Don't be sad. Enjoy tomorrow's finals.It's gonna be fantastic.

    HHY won yesterday by combining drop and slice shots with high clear and smash. WMC was too tired after running around. Today HHY's drop and slice will be much less effective with tall Tine.

    i think HHY has a chance by just rallying Tine but keeping the shot fast so Tine cannot utilize her smash. Tine's error rate is quite high today and her style is not suited to long rallies.
