LYB revealed 3 reason for fielding the scratch pairing of Zheng Bo / Yu Yang instead of Zheng Bo / Ma Jin or He Hanbin / Yu Yang: - since ZB/MJ has beaten LYD/LHJ a few times at the beginning of the year, KOR must have spend a lot of time studying them. however, they don't know anything about how ZB/YY will play together. - YY has matured and mentally much more calm since winning Olympics, she can assist ZB with any issues on court - YY/ZB is still a very strong pair, it is paramount to win the first XD match. here is LYD's reaction after the match: - i haven't been bothered with the change of players. i was confident with my form. - esp in the 1st game, i played very well. unfortunately, they played very very well after that.
