    probably yes I think her aims are WC and OG i think she works much harder in major tournaments than any minor ones trackin her Podium finishes record in Major which is the highest in current cuircit 4 WC 1 OG 2 WTF.

    However I think money and fame has spoilt her and she keeps gettin more and more and more money God knows why..somebody needs to stop pampering her so that she could get that hunger back.

    Im disgustingly disappointed

    Well, we are in Singapore Open thread now. So I won't say anything to disrespect anyone here by mentioning any other country. It might hurt their pride.

    CM lost the last 6 matches against TTY. In fact, she has not beaten her once since TTY got in shape and became the best player in the world. In other words, CM being absent or present doesn't bother TTY one bit.

    CTC not only has strong legs, he's also a smart thinking player, better than Chen Long in this aspect.

    I think gill pointed out it very rightly, answering to MF's suggestion of trying to win few set of points and small victories. When you come on court with an idea of you should win, cause you have been there done that, cause you have won these matched at bigger events and for bigger prizes. And when things don't work quite as planned, it hurts cause you are expected to win, and this sudden turn around is hard to digest and accept.

    It's almost as if its hurting your "ego", then you try new things and they don't work either you loose patience and the next thing you know you are 19-6 down.

    MF was right, for the first time in ages, about being humble and accepting challenge.

    It's really dissapointing if it actually was the case, cause NO is WC and in fine form PVS should've expected it to be tough.

    Anyways taking no credit away from NO she was flawless today, has been this entire tournament. Significant increase in pace, beleive she can win Tomorrow

    What proof do we have she doesn't play well because of fame and money? Correct me if I'm wrong but last year too she didn't perform that well in most tournaments yet won the individual Asian games, the world tour Final and got silver at the WC. I was also disappointed in her game today but I don't think it's because of her earnings.

    EDIT: @minions corrected me, she actually lost against TTY in the AG final.

    That's why it's so important to have IRS in top tier tournaments, preferably for all the courts from the opening round.

    Ginting took G1 21-17

    When he is in form, he is so much fun to watch.
    But when he will be? The biggest question whenever he is going to get on court.
