    all i did was to go to the dinner table. came back, and it was 6-0 Hendrawan.

    Gade is a little bit shocked by Hendrawan's deception. that's about all i can tell from the couple of points i saw.

    1-7.

    Hendrawan is reading Gade's net shots, both drops and net.

    Gade is a bit out of idea. Hendrawan is very fast today.

    hm... some pattern here. Tony/Halim, Hendrawan. what did they have for dinner last night? :)

    another amazing deceptive shot from Hendrawan, completely fooling Gade.

    Gade is nervous. he looked like he was in the Olympics. out of ideas. not calm enough to change his strategy.

    11-1.

    he need to take his time, and push Hendrawan to the corners. like that chen hong did. but he is not doing it, he is not up to par when it comes to battlign at the net.

    12-1

    Hendrawan is reading Gade. but Gade is stunned by Hendrawan. he got fooled by Hendrawan's flick service.

    Gade is serving high now. now he is listening. he got 4 points in a row. 6-14.

    he just pushed to the net. 14-6

    15-6 Hendrawan

    let's hope Kenneth Larson put some sense into Gade's head during the interval.

    yup. 4-0 gade on the second game.

    he is serving high to Hendrawan. and not letting him dominate the net, and when a lift comes back, a big Gade smash finishes it off.

    Gade is still playing the net. and Hendrawan is faster than ever.

    Hendrawan caught up, 5-5 now.

    Hendrawan is just amazing at the net. if it doesn't go into the badminton history book, i will put it into the Badminton Central history book.

    12-12 now.

    Hendrawan is grunting. never seen him doing that before.

    he looks tired. 13-12. it is 2 points, or, IMHO, he won't be able to make it through the 3rd game.

    The half life for that blue pill is only 30 minutes, I doubt that Hendrawan took one pill during the timeout in between two sets?

    He's amazing, beat my expectation no matter win or lose
