On True 24 yesterday, we watched the Ladies doubles match against Denmark in Round 1 of the Sudirman Cup in Australia. Jongkolphan KITITHARAKUL and Sapsiree TAERATTANACHA versus Kamilla Rytter JUHL and Christinna PEDERSEN . .
21-15 21-12   

These Ladies can play. Against physically stronger and much taller Danes, the Thais were just stunning in speed of movement. The Danes were playing smash after smash from the back of the Court that could hardly be seen on the TV, such was the power. The Thais stood up to it. And unsettled the Danes with some drop shots. In the end, the Danes had put so much into it, they seemed to get tired.
Thailand through the 1st round 3-2.

I used to play several times a week in my 20's and know how hard it is to get around that Court ! The levels of fitness are the very highest IMO. More to come.
