    It feels sooooooooooooo good!

    It gave a lesson to all those people, including opponents, newsmedia, and fans who don't respect the olympic Champ and all england Champ.

    Never underestimate the CHAMPION!

    Poor Kim Dong Moon... did you see how he reacted when the final point was scored? Just threw his racket down in an exasperated fashion. When I saw his face during the prize presentation, I felt like crying.

    Geez... I must be really nuts. Anyway, I just want to apologise again for calling CM a sore loser. It must be really frustrating to lose... I could see it on Kim's face.
    And not everybody can hide their frustration...

    The final score was 17-16. They were 14-16 down and snatched final point. Zhang and Gao must have some kind of guardian angel, always scraping thru at 11th hour.and Gao
    seems to think playing in finals are a big joke, but she was not
    laaughing when chips were down. Maybe they can do better if
    Gao is more serious on court like say Koreans.

    BTW which May is this ,Sing or Msian?

    Re: Zhang / Gao Special ability

    Olympic, AE, and WC.
    Just how do they manage to save all those match points against them at different times. The China coaches must feel very stressed at those times!

    Me, which doesn't help much. The Sing one. I'm a real bitch when I get mad, which is like at the drop of a hat.
