    The atmosphere at the stadium was great! The Thai crowd cheered for not only the Thai players but all of the players. Of course the cheering was much louder for the Thai players. The players certainly appreciated the support and thanked the crowd after the matches.

    Wang Rong's jersey had 'Unisys' (one of her sponsors?) imprinted at the back and she had to cover it up (i believe at the request of the officials).

    Maybe she's on vacation in Bangkok and decided last minute to join the tournament? :D Yep she played with the Yonex NS9000. She seems pretty close to Zhang Jiewen as they took photos for each other at the podium.

    Did a search on the web. I believe Wang Rong is one of the coaching staff of Nihon Unisys badminton team:
    http://www.unisys.co.jp/badminton/staff.html
    http://www.unisys.co.jp/badminton/w/team/wangrong.html

    During the finals, Wang Rong was with her coach and two japanese female players at the stadium.

    the lady

    I actually talked to the woman that was with Nguyen and asked her if she was his coach, she said no and that she was just a good friend. NTM has been training with a coach from China, whether he was one of the other people that accompanied him to Bangkok, I don't know.
    Btw, an interesting fact is that Phan Van Khai, the chairman of the Vietnam Badminton Federation was the country's Prime Minister from 1997-2006. I guess he got a promotion.

    I don't think NTM has an official coach. He has been playing all the tournaments by himself. That is why it makes him a so special player. He will be a hell of a coach by the time he tired from the pro badminton circuit.
