    INA lose to the better team, still a bitter pill to swallow though. Some talking point from my point of view:
    -4 musketeers in INA's MS.. So near yet so far when it comes to competing with who's who of badminton MS. I can't tell whether it's better for this country to have a certain Taufik Hidayat and a bunch of mediocre MS shuttlers as back-ups, or 4 exciting young talents with different characteristics in one generation.
    -CHN came to Bangkok with all cylinders firing, no need to tell how great this line-up when they have the luxury to put 2 time Olympic gold medalist as 3rd MS (!) I'm rooting for them to take the lost crown once again.
    -INA have fielded the strongest possible line-up, but one can only wonder for now if FA/MRA has a chance against LJH/LYC. This has been a good week for the debutants, they'll have another shot.

    Why not having Uber and Thomas Final on the same day?

    On a lighter note, I might want to take my word back about yellow/black INA shirt.. If it brings good luck, hell yeah I can stand watching them play in shocking pink

    And it's good to be able to release your emotions once in a while, just take a look at LJH

    Yep, Separate day Finals should be must for Professional Sports having Men and Women competing simultaneously.

    It significantly generates more interest.

    Wow. So many of those JoJ errors aren't related to physical fitness or injury. Just hitting it out and long like that is his form. What happened to him? He has been back for some time now but his form is so bad.

    Exactly, nothing to be ashamed about. The opponents were too strong. Even on paper, MD1 was the only one INA had a chance of winning in the first place. They even have LD waiting on the bench just in case the tie had gone to 2-2.
    And having the women's team losing the SF seems to boost up the men's motivation enough to the roof. Look at Li/Liu, even they were so fired up like a couple of steamed bulls seeing red mantle.
