Congrats to both finalists.
Oh well, we dunno who “Thomas” is anyway.
Liew Daren’s nerve held up in the second set I must say.
Third singles is nerve wracking. Final game (rubber) to determine Cup winner.
Hasbullah Awang: “Satu permainan yang mencemaskan.” KJ seen jumping like a monkey.
Wow, heavy weight on the shoulders of the third singles.
Second doubles going into rubber.
KJ is in New Delhi to tumpang glamer!
He’s sitting court side.
Very fast game the second doubles.
Japan vs Malaysia 2-1
Razif Sidek is also a commentator for this finals.
The sportscaster is such a familiar voice we grew up with — Hasbullah Awang
If I’m not mistaken, the last time Malaysia won the Thomas Cup we had a national holiday.
Japan wins the second singles. The Japan player Momota is a left hander.
Just saying: The two Malaysians Tan Boon Heong-Hoon Thien How are so fair skinned.
How come guys who live in tropical country just 5 degrees north of the equator can still remain so fair?

The match point was nailbiting! A closely fought third set. Japan wins the first doubles though.
Doubles match into rubber game. Break time now.
Grandpapa Dapster appears to be gloating

There are no Indians and “zero Chinese” in the national badminton squad.
All the “Magnificent Seven” are Malaysian. Mua ha ha hah to the Dapsters.
One up for Malaysia. Lee Chong Wei won his match.
Now the first doubles pair is playing.
I’m doing this post saje-saje and will just paste whatever stuff that catches my fancy.
The Li Ning brand logo keeps flashing on screen.
Li Ning was China’s Olympic multiple gold-winning gymnast. He founded the Li Ning sports apparel and equipment company in 1990 after retirement from active competition.
The Li Ning company is really big today. The man himself sits as chairman of the board. Aaaah, the Chinese entrepreneurial spirit.
Some Chinese men are good looking (above). Some Chinese men look like this (below).
