    Xia Xuanze has come out to take responsibility for Li Xuerui's loss for failing to arrange properly the tactical details (using his own words) and as for not fielding He Bingjiao in the elimination stage it's because of her recent injury which affected her systematic training (sprained her ankle for which she stopped training for more than 10 days).

    You know what it slightly reminds me of what happened to INA's women team. After the retirement of Susi Susanti, Mia Audina (to the Netherlands) and the two top doubles in the 90s they went really down hill. Hope that's not the case with China as they actually have a lot of promising young talents.

    You can‘t even compare this. What Kevin is doing is outright rude. Especially against the Malaysians. Okay, so Liu Yuchen went a little crazy while celebrating... so what?

    It‘s ironic that the craziest Badminton fans (Indonesian fans) always take such offense when they are no angels themselves. If you ever watched Indonesia Open you know what I mean.

    Just forget those stupid people. They are 'fans' that dont really understand the nature of badminton itself, how often people lose in this sport is much higher than some other sports

    Plus, many of them are not educated well (literally)

    Sometimes I help by educate them slowly about badminton and ethic, but of course I cant spend all my time on it

    What's so ironic? They are the lowest shameless so called Badminton fans. They are ruining the sport where ever they go. Players has nothing to do with what the fans do. Attacking the players social media account is unacceptable even if the particular players had done something rude or whatever, what does it have to do with the fans? Just some sore losers.

    And they would have bashed their 'favorite players/pair' too if they lost. They would always find someone/something to blame for their dissatisfaction. What a joke to call themselves sport fans. Idiocracy never ceases to amuse me.

    kevin doing the extremes to opponent who provoke him.

    While li junhui doing all that screaming to Setiawan, one of the most respected and harmless badminton player that ever live.
    I'm waiting li junhui doing that to kevin sanjaya face (if he has the nerve).

    So,

    KM vs. CL
    Sonoda/Kamura vs. ZN/LC
    Nishimoto vs. SYQ
    Endo/Watanabe vs. Liu/Liu

    I think it will end in 3-1 with China holding the cup. LD is not needed again in the final.

    It is not that. It is PBSI asking Hendra to join the national team in temporary basis just for Thomas Cup.

    Haha, are you serious? So Kevin is provoked the whole time? It‘s always the others? The Chinese, the Malaysians or the Danes? Sure! ;)

    Also I‘m sure Li Junhui did the screaming to pump himself up, not to intimidate his opponents (also that‘s for the umpire to decide). Have you watched MD lately? There‘s always screaming. Before a serve is struck each player screams like it‘s a reflex or some sort of obligation. Just because Setiawan rarely does, doesn‘t protect him from those screams. :)
