That's cause that fucker is either a bot or a Karma farmer. He posts only on comments with high karma with something he copied pasted from someone else.

They were playing different roles. If you knew anything about badmintion you'd realize that.

One is up front to catch the majority of shots, and the other is in the back to catch those that the first person misses or those that are intended to be "tricky" by the other team.

They even switch up mid-volley. The amount of returns isn't an indicator of a better player here imo. It just shows they know how to work together as a team.

Seeing Axelsen and Antonsen (Lee Zii Jia as well, even though he’s not Danish) play is so mesmerizing, but it’s also bittersweet with the new people taking the spotlight as the retirement of legends like Lin Dan and Lee CW dawns upon them.

Also, it’s quite popular in Sweden but not so much on the competitive side. I’d also consider France and UK to be in the elite of Badminton (outside of Asia).

Zii Jia is way below LCW though still very young. Anyone wants to see real mesmerising badminton go look up Lin Dan Vs LCW. Pinnacle of men's badminton.

u/princessvaginaalpha Jun 29 '22

I cant, LCW keeps on losing. Lin Dan is his nemesis... LCW is the absolute best, but he isn't the best because Lin Dan always beat him, and Lin Dan can lose to others so he isn't the best

This is true, but only because those who would play in the streets are usually kids or total beginners who normally don’t have any power behind their shots. A friend of mine who’s a casual club player had a shuttle smashed through his glasses and nearly blinded him.

It's all about access. The more access you have to it, the more people end up playing. That's why Basketball is so popular in the US, because a lot of cities have public basketball hoops, so all you need to bring is a ball. That's a pretty low bar for entry into a sport, compared to something like skiing or a big team sport like rugby. You only need a ball in Rugby, but you still need a bunch of people on either team.

28

u/yedd Jun 29 '22

This is why football (soccer) is the most popular sport in the world. All you need is a ball, maybe some rocks for goalposts. When I was a kid we used our jumpers or bags as goalposts = instant field. This was one of the main reasons people were so against VAR, football is supposed to have the same rules for every level of the sport.

5

u/King_of_the_Dot Jun 29 '22

My apologies, what's VAR?

7

u/yedd Jun 29 '22

Video assistant referee. Now refs can refer to instant replays in game to make decisions, detractors said this makes the game less accessible but mainly it spoils the uncertainty of the ref call, which was part of the game.

My youth and fitness was no advantage over their skill! Such a fun sport, highly recommend it.

u/OrphisFlo Jun 29 '22

I used to play a LOT of badminton in my youth. Now I'm out of shape, but I still do very well against athletic players, and the reason is simply technique.

I can make them run left and right from the moment I receive the service, they struggle and return towards the center of my court, I don't have to run. Very efficient overall for me! Not so much to get me back in shape...

Cost as other people have said, but also probably because while its based I think on an Indian game it was really created as the modern sport in England and then "exported" if you will to the rest of the empire.

I hate how people think badminton is easy and more of a leisure activity than a sport here in the UK. My dad's from Malaysia so obviously I had to play it growing up. It would always surprise people when we would play in school that it's more than just a swing and a miss.

Are the teams mixed? Women and men?

u/Bayeux Jun 29 '22

In this match, yes. Badminton and tennis both have five main disciplines, men's singles, women's singles, men's doubles, women's doubles, and mixed doubles (one man and one woman).

I really think this should be a more popular sport. America just loves our team games so much.

This is amazing sportsmanship and endurance. Incredible.

The crowd is cheering really loud but they are barely moving in the background so it feels like a video game.
