    If this happens, Kevin probably blames Marcus first.

    No, I mean then the umpire will give the point to minions and JPN would argue. You know what happened afterward.

    Or if Kobayashi hit Hoki instead, then umpire gave the point to them. Minions argued with no avail.
    Either way I still think Kevin will shake hands with them. After giving them the thumb down.:p

    Well, he is Kevin after all. Don't expect him to be emotionally stable at all times.

    Going to the topic, let's replace Hoki/Koba with minions. What will minions do seeing ZN's action? Kevin respects ZN, right? So, I wonder about what will happen.

    No idea. I have been wondering the same thing. They will protest of course, but I just hope Kevin would still shake hands in the end. I don't want to despise him for not shaking hands with the opponent after the match.

    Of course, Kevin will shake hand at the end of the match. He won't carry any grudge after that.

    Yeah, ZN used to be quite emotional too during matches. But he didn't refuse nor hesitate to shake hands with Kevin and Polii after that match in IO. Though he threw his racket to the floor straight away and refused to do so with the service judge and the umpire:confused: Looking at him now, I guess he matured over the time.

    Matured to the point of getting shuttle slapped into his face and denying that he did.

    Yupe, and made no big fuss out of it. The umpire didn't tell him off either. That's what being lucky called. Even enough luck to add to his collections of multiple OG and WC gold medals. Must be good being that lucky eh?

    And maybe Kevin should learn from Zhang Nan after all. Might give him the luck ZN had to win WC and OG gold.
    Rather than being unlucky to be beaten by Chai/Biao or other pairs in WC.

    Haha sure. At least I'm sure he wakes up every morning and he feels so good whenever he looks at those gold medals lining up on his mantelpiece.

    Well don't you worry, ZN's luck ran out the moment LC became his partner. So there you go. Having bad luck charm on his side all this time and still managed to win that WC gold. Must admire his "luck".

    So you'd rather have a guy showing thumbs down gestures and refusing to accept umpires' decisions?
    Also I missed ZN denying that he was hit. Care to point to footage of that? While he didn't approach the umpire to tell him he was hit (as he should have, imop), that's not the same as denying it outright.

    He just seems to hate ZN for being so overrated. For someone who can't even smash killers, must be pure luck to have won gold medals.

    Looking at BAC's draw, Zhang/Li is in there. ZN's back doing double duty?
