The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be (^o^)
Points for the team events is 10% of your points before the start of the tournament plus 1% of the highest ranked opponent you beat.
For LD it will be about 7505+432, 7937 approx.
Is the 10% rule the same for all members of the team? same for LD and Chen Long?
Yes, I believe so
Hi Guys: Any of you know what color string Lin dan use, it doesn't seem to be his usual lime grenn anymore ?
With the Olympics approaching, we're going to see Lin Dan's smashes slowly coming back.
agree with your opinion.
I think it should be :
(total points / number of tournaments ) + 1% of the highest ranked opponent you beat
Lin Dan :
(26000 / 3 ) + 1% of Yu Hsieh Lin points (before TC 2014 started) = 8849 points
China sweep Japan to take Sudirman Cup
AFP News – 18 hours ago
China won their sixth consecutive Sudirman Cup on Sunday, defeating Japan, which had reached the badminton tournament's finals for the first time.
Thousands welcomed home team China with horns and drums as they entered and huddled to chants of "go China, go", with jeers heard when the Japanese team arrived on the court in the southern Chinese city of Dongguan.
China swept Japan 3-0 in a series of tightly contested matches during the final day of the event, with Chinese superstar Lin Dan jumping in the air and pumping his fist after winning his men's single match against Japan's Takuma Ueda 21-15, 21-13.
"It (the win) means a lot to me because I was in the men's singles for the finals and made the contribution for our team's win," Lin told reporters after receiving his gold medal.
But the 31-year-old Lin also said he felt a bit nervous coming into the match.
"I had the confidence to beat Ueda, but I couldn't tell why I felt a little nervous and pressure when I played the game," he said.
"We wanted to have the consecutive win to keep the Sudirman Cup in China," he added.
Lin also said that the Japanese badminton team would be a strong opponent for China in the upcoming Thomas Cup in 2016.
"I never thought that Japan's victory last year in the Thomas Cup was an accident because we've seen a lot of strong opponents from Japan, Denmark and Korea," he said.
"Next year is also the Olympics so we need to have good performance in the Thomas and Uber Cup."
China's Li Xuerui, the top seeded women's singles player, exchanged leads with her opponent Akane Yamaguchi in the first game, but ultimately handed Yamaguchi a defeat, winning 23-21, 21-14.
"Because it's a big contest, I felt pressure. The reason why the score was so close in the first game was because I made a few mistakes," Li told reporters after the game.
"She's improved very quickly," Li said of the 17-year-old Yamaguchi, who she has played three times in total.
"Generally speaking, the young Japanese players pose a challenge to China."
Yamaguchi told reporters Li handled the pressure of the match better.
Japan's coach Park Joo-bong said although China remains a very strong team, his players are also getting better.
"Today we lost 3-0 because China is a strong team, they have always been a very strong team. In the last two or three years, our players are getting a bit closer," Park, who used to play for South Korea, told reporters.
China's Fu Haifeng and Zhang Nan also contributed to the nation's tenth win at the Sudirman Cup, which was first held in 1989, winning 21-17, 20-22, 21-17 in a tight men's doubles against Hiroyuki Endo and Kenichi Hayakawa.
just realized that China always win 3 - 0 in the last 6 editions of Sudirman Cup
Are you in the right thread? Setiawan/Ahsan played on SF day. You got me confused.
It was general comment .
responding to the article. Japan's rising is no accident. They are the reigning champion of the Thomas Cup, and runner-up for both the Uber Cup and Sudirman Cup.
being a team tournament tests a lot of breath of the team. some teams might have a good WS only, some have good male players but not enough good female players. both China and Japan have good players in both department. Many Japan players may not be the very top of the rankings (no LCW/LD) but they are consistently high and capable of reaching later round in the big tournaments. that's what counts to be strong in a team tournament.
But somehow I beleive Indonesia and Korea have better chances to beat China as all three doubles are capable of the best. But Japan's XD was a surprise!
It was very mischievous of you to quote me and then claimed it was a general comment.
OK I will explain when I have some energy.
No need. Save your energy.
