    Zhang/Gao leading 10-7

    the Chinese are more offensive. they are hitting to Kim. strange. the ladies also hit to the stronger player during WD yesterday.

    Kim hasn't been very consistent. quite a few unforced errors.

    Zhang's smashes are as hard as ever.

    13-8 China.

    first game goes to China, 15-10

    the Koreans looks tired. Zhang and Gao are just doing the usual Zhang hard jumpsmashes and Gao net blocks. Kim/Ra are weak on their returns a few occasions and that's where the Chinese found the gap.

    Zhang also seem to have found Kim's defense weakness. smashes on his close body forehand. Kim tend to anticipate on his backhand side.

    Ra looks tired indeed. it is only beginning of second game. once she backed up to take Kim's shot. could be a sign of mental tiredness.

    the Koreans are starting to be more aggressive the second game.

    4-4 now.

    Ra need to play a semi final match as well. i wonder how she'd perform there.

    the Koreans are just not there. despite taking 4 points in a row, they looked like they haven't even woked up yet. they just aren't into the game.

    or perhaps that's just a tactic they are using. fool their opponents.

    7-8. Chinese trailing.

    8-8.

    the koreans aren't able to cope with the Chinese offense.

    the Koreans went on the offensive and took the second game. 15-12.

    let's see if Kim/Ra or Zhang/Gao can last longer.

    Kim is terrible on the "touch shots" dept. he missed quite a few already. nervous? tired?

    6-4 China on 3rd game.
