Thailand's first singles Boonsak told reporters that he was satisfied with his play Wednesday, but said he did not get used to the wind in the stadium and made a lot of unforced errors near the net." Lin Dan is faster today", he added.

    China's head coach Li Yongbo said in a news briefing that Lin Dan really has a little trouble in the first half of the game because Boonsak is a good player.
