    I'm going to miss the badminton highlight of this year... :(

    But hey, it's almost just as fun to read about it here afterwards!
    I missed the two last matches of the semi DEN vs INA, but got a good feeling of the excitement reading about it afterwards! Great win by the Danish team, it was very nice to know that 35-year old Jens Eriksen (a fav player of mine) take a crucial point!

    Anyway, enough of the semifinal! Today is the final, and today China will win. If all the Danes were in top shape they could challenge China, but they are not. They suffer from the heat (esp. Jonassen), they have diarrhea (Gade and Jonassen), and they will still be physically and psychologically exhausted from the tough battle against Indonesia. Plus in this case, I think age could be a factor. The Danes will need longer recovery...

    China wins 3-0.

    Have fun everybody during the finals!

    Correction to time specifications: WIB 1900 is not GMT +1200. I did the check and found out that it is supposed to be GMT +0900 instead.

    So it should be WIB 1900 GMT +0900.

    HK, Singapore, KL : 8.00 pm
    UK GMT : 12.00 pm

    Jakarta is GMT +0700. It's one hour behind HK, Singapore and KL which are in +0800 zone.

    Apologies. Yes, it is GMT 7.00. My miscalculation.

    Moderators, can you correct?

    I am getting excited to watch the Thomas cup. I missed the Urber cup yesterday as all the streaming broadcasts were full. I am hoping that RTM 2 will telecast it. I will know in 5 minutes as I am on. Last and only Thomas cup final I saw was live in 1969 in KL. Indonesia beat Malaysia 7-2. Hope RTM2 shows the match and it is good.
