    It doesn't matter. The Danish desperately needed to shatter the Indonesian's focus and they grasped at that chance. Couldn't blame them as it was all the umpire to decide in the end. Why not take advantage of it? It was 19-14 (or 15?) and INA pair was in the roll.
    It has always been mental battle between these two, and as they hoped, the Minions lost their concentration at the final stage of the G3 almost losing the game.

    1 game all for Zheng/Huang vs Wata/Higa. Let's see who will take G3.
    Can't really watch their match as the streaming lagging so bad, guess I will have to settle with the live score at the moment.

    Yeah, you're right. On another note, Kevin needs to manage his emotion better, cause it will only disadvantage him.

    Kevin always brings something new.

    How natural his passion is for badminton for 170cm kevin is amazing. He can introduced moves that were never thought about. It was the other day running back to the net and then to the baseline against Goh, today is the Thumbs Down. Then against Li/Liu is ' I will return your shot with the left hand'

    Haha there are sense of humour of what he did, i would say. if i am neutral.

    A tired-looking Intanon goes out tamely to Sung Ji Hyun

    Great win from TakaMatsu that’s rather reminiscent of their Olympic victory coming down from 16-19 to win the next five points and the match 21-19 in the decider. Showdown with FukuHiro again tomorrow!!

    C'mon, Maestro Lee Chong Wei, show your stuff again and put the young upstart in his place.

    Can't blame him in that situation. It was out of control from the beginning of G2. Again, I think the umpire didn't handle things quite well this time. Thanks to the loud crowd to make his task even much more difficult.

    He usually is doing pretty fine, but somehow playing Li/Liu and Madses always brings out the worse part of him.

    Guess he fed up with the incompentence of umpires after all... Last time he got fault for making attempt of his usual antique while the shuttlecok was clearly far away from his racket. Even there was instant review afterwards which showing the shuttlecock untouched.

    And now when his opponent clearly touched the shuttlecock with his racket, the umpire turned the blind eyes. No wonder he pissed off.

    Zheng/Huang beat Watanabe/Higashino in 3 games. And with 21-10 margin in G3.
    They are not showing mercy this time.

    There is no instant review in Badminton rules. NO VAR. So once its decided by umpire.. that's it. The replays shown in the screen is for the spectators.
    Maybe they should not allow replay for spectators... makes the umpire job difficult.. or implement VAR in the challenge.

    There is no instant review system for the umpire to change a decision for this sort of thing.

    Yeah. That might as well the right thing to do since it could disrupt the match if the players kept on asking to review every fault.
    But sometimes some decisions could be so ridiculous that might upset the players in concern. Guess the game must go on.

    Just look at the age gap, 35 vs 19, what a disparity, 16 years ! Like a father vs son match. The best part is the 35-yr-old is playing like he's 19.

    H S Prannoy runs out of gas by the third round of every tournament. The reason why he never wins anything.
