    Alright, let's give you a medal then.

    Not that it matters but JPN did't put out it's strongest team. Playing Sasaki was a smart move as he had the speed to keep up with LD.

    Rather.
    The commentators went very quiet after the initial fawning. Gill Clark and her new found twin, Richard sth.

    Hehe I have finally returned!
    Just been busy recently, but can't afford to miss out watching Sudirmans Cup on a big screen TV :D...
    Net is very slow here though! Been busy following the cricket too hehe, and the occasional IPL when Gayle is playing :p...
    Can't wait to watch the INA vs MAS match tomorrow !

    Yeah, been watching lots of cricket myself - World Cup and IPL. That Pollard dude sure can murder the ball too.

    INA v MAS is at 4:00am our time. It's going to be a challenge to wake up that early, haha. By all accounts, INA should take it 3-2. Should one of their XD, WD or WS decide to turn yoyo, MAS could capitalize (with their own brand of yoyo players) :D

    I feel that this result belies the current strength of the Japanese team. Sayaka demostrated some nice strokes, showed good tactics and her fitness seems to have improved. Sho is probably on the form of his life. And the Japanese men are now a formidable force. Hirokatsu has a very powerful smash, and Mizuki showed solid defence, returning consecutive smashes from Xu Chen with ease. And this line-up is not even the strongest. I believe their quarter-final opponents will have to struggle to beat them.

    I think JPN had resigned to the fact they would lose to CHN so decided to give their players a rest ahead of the QF. Expect a much changed team then.

    Resigned is a term to be used for any opponent against China, lol. Yes, I think it was sound tactics to give the players more rest for the major upcoming battle. Hirokatsu shouldn't have played so enthusiastically earlier, though the match was really enjoyable for the players as well as the spectators. Unless he is not featuring in the quarter-finals.
