well done to Jia Wei, let's hope she can get the bronze tomolo.
The korean player is pretty fast and mentally strong. But Jia Wei gave her a good fight. Hope she can still win a bronze.
hahahaha... no doubt abt the korean player... when she score ah, she would shout damn loud to boost her morale and intimidate jiawei, one point which i think affected jiawei very much.... she sometimes also stare at jiawei during the game until her eyes wanna come out los.... kaoz....Originally Posted by acetylcholine
then i think during the 3rd game or 4th she smash jiawei damn hard delibrately lors..... but she apologised by giving a hand signal to jiawei... dunnoe lar... quite true ah, this kind of competition really need nerves or steel man... hahaha.... well done jiawei!!!
Well.... IMO, she did not have that mental strength as much as the Korean (despite at times, she seems to be able to pull herself back from those lost points). It was there for her to take with 2 games on hand. However, she got affected, lost concentration and the Korean won in the end. But I have to say this... I nearly would love to throttle that Korean gal... Kept shouting, even just before each serve whether it is her serving or not!!!! Damn irritating... Perhaps that's her ploy!!!! So I guess Jia Wei was cool in this sense - I still think she might be affected by this as well, just a little.
By the way... If she is not enjoying her game, she will not be able to be up there with competiting with the best day in and out... If you are a competitive person, you will want to win, with or without any incentive.... So, $$$ is just an additional incentive.
I do hope she will do better tmr... With her ability, she can do... Just whether she can recover from this game and move on.
Maybe she release stress this way, seen alot of atheletics does this.I was just wondering throughout the match if jiawei imitate her shouting it would be lolx,damn funny but it won't happen.i just woke up from a dream that is.Originally Posted by jonlou
I didn't catch the match..I heard jia wei lost..but still she have chance for bronze!! What was the score for semi's? And when will be the match where she fight for bronze?
4 games to 3.... tomolo 6pm for bronze. GO JIAWEI GO!!!Originally Posted by Flyingpig
haiyo... jiawei win right, she only "yosh" or something mah... that korean releases her stress the loudest soooo far lor IMO.... lol!! dunnoe wat she shouting also leh....Originally Posted by zaxh81
i feel like going into the tv and also giving the koren a tight slap, so noisy, irriated my bus ride!Originally Posted by acetylcholine
I wonder why no one from Jiawei's bench taught her to chant back at the korean singaporean way.
They could have asked her to shout also, phrases that is close to our hearts eg: Before serving, shout, 'HOR LI SI'. iF lose point, 'KNN', IF gain point, 'HO SEI LEOW', and what the !@#$, the s'porean supporters besides Jia yu, should go for : Ai pia ka a eyah'.

Confidence is thinking you'll be Champions, arrogance is stating it.
Let's wait another 4 more years
it was a FANTASTIC achievement by fighting thru and all the way to the third placing game. jiawei, u did SINGAPORE PROUD. we all u!
i feel she really blew it this time. somehow i feel her performace this time pales in comparison to yesterday's
Susilo, Li Jia Wei and the other Singaporean Olympians did their best ... we ought to be proud of their achievements!
