    tine played horrible in the last two sets, she said afterwards that XU played better today. Tine's legs were tired and she felt she could use a break.

    Lots of long returns from Mateusiak in the rubber-set.
    Come on Poland!!

    What a pity...Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg win the European Championships 2008 after a tough rubber-set victory over Robert Mateusiak/Nadiezda Kostiuczyk 16-21, 22-20, 21-15.

    The Polish pair was leading comfortably at 17-12 in the second set when 2 judgement errors by Mateusiak gifted 2 points to the English pair. Clark/Kellogg subsequently had a 6-2 run and eventually finished off the Polish pair's challenge.

    But this Polish pair is certainly one to watch out for...they have beaten He Hanbin/Yu Yang twice....in the French Open and Russian Open 2007 (to claim the title in Moscow).

    Thanks for the link Johnny. It is really good, you don't need any software download and mine didn't buffer at all.

    Too bad I only just got in to see the last match.

    It is obvious these players know each other very well. All the serves are been seen before they are hit.

    It makes the game look good! But the rallies fairly short. 20-18 to JR/LP despite being behind for most of it, JR Playing well at the net (Partlybecause knowing the opposition do good anticipation)

    21-19 to JR/LPgame1

    No buffering!? I've had nothing but since the beginning, like I'm watching the slowmotion replay throughout the whole match. Hmm, maybe when I restart my modem ...
    That did the trick indeed, smooth right now :).

    No buffering here either... It helps having a 10 Mbit connection ;)

    The scoreline has been tight since the beginning and its now 11-10 at the interval of the second set to Eriksen/Hansen's advantage.

    I am getting a bit of slow motion, but it is OK. Quite watchable.

    11-10 JE/ML at the Interval. 2nd game almost the same as the 1st so far
