I am really shocked and sad to learn that my country's both ladies doubles team had been disqualified along with teams from South Korea and Indonesia for trying to throw their matches. I don't know what's on their minds including the coaches to ever come to this shameful act. You can literally see them intentionally throwing their match by serving into the net and no effort retrieval of the serves or returns. The whole stadium was already sounding their displeasure and referees had stepped in. Yet, they (participants) were actually defiant. I have to say shamefully that this is a first for me and the players deserved to be disqualified. I hope the various Olympics committee of each country including mine will deal harshly with these competitors and ban them from further competitions. The coaches will equally need to be punished for their indifference and unsportsmanlike conduct with their charges. They are unfit to coach and their charges unfit to play in further competitions. It is a sad day for true sportsmanship and competition.
