Now The Winner Will Be The Winner Of Gade/lee H Ii
that will teach you to fall asleep
You've forgotten that Ronald could be an obstacle in place of Lin!
this is incredible! congratulations to Ronald. Ronald for gold!!!!
again this proves that the Olympics is unpredictable.
Maybe some other players have worked harder than Peter and deserve the Gold too. It is really difficult to compare. Many factors come into play in an important match, as you've just witnessed the battle between Ronald and Lin. How a player can control all these factors and put them to his advantage in a match really counts a great deal.
Frankly, I think the top half is now thrown open and any of the seeded players certainly have a chance to win, now that Ronald has done them a service by knocking out Lin.
darn darn darn
i dun hv bravo and i missed all the action.
WHAT THE H...
only if you have seen Ronald's grin on the opening ceremony, imagine his grin *now*! i think he needs help closing his mouth back!!
found some pix =)
I see Ronald has changed from his favourite MP99 then..
anybody got this match digitized? i really want to see it.
It's a surprise, but not totally unexpected. Any of the top players could win the medal - Bao, Chen H, WCH, Taufik, Peter Gade, RSusilo. I have voted Bao to win the medal and let's see how he fares in this tournament.
Hey, quit changing sides LOL
hahhahah no i've just seen yesterday china open final against Wong .. and i love his game !! he's amazing !
but i also like Susilo =)
yah, so much for prediction from journalists that this time the #1 seeded will take the gold
I'm sure Susilo had studied and trained hard to beat top opponents like LD where as LD had prolly paid lot less attention in his training and preparation against Susilo.
One of China's Tricks?
lol, I never knew that we have a live channel in BC
Anyway, it's good to see new faces advances to the later rounds
LOL, never seen u luffed so hard and long.
Like Kwun, I just woke up several min ago and I am dismayed, disenchanted, in dis-array, and most of all dissapointed.
Super Dan, stay strong.. keep supporting ur teammates from the sidelines. You still completely owned your discipline for a half year period!!
Now, I just hope LYB doesn't bring out the whip!
i must say, i was shocked more because Lin Dan was supposed to win, and not because i am a Chinese supporter. it was said long ago that Lin might have peaked too early in the year for playing well in the Olympics, and i think our prediction came true. but no one can say that they are not surprised by the result considering how strong Lin has been so far and that Susilo is only a player at the edge of the radar despite the Japan Open win.
but as many have said, Susilo played beyond expectations and i think it is a great win! the field is now wide open as the shadow formed by Lin has been lifted.
yet again, the curse of the number one seed has made its toll.
