Strange, strange game that one! Hou didn't seem to be able to deal with his opponent's mega-spinny slow-loop then slap combination.

I would say Hou had very poor footwork. Janos played very smart and used that. He looped with thin touch, lots of spin and no speed and very short. Hou backed too far away and was placed too far away from the ball when he chopped.

Even though Janos might not look very good in this match he beat Wang Xi a few years ago, so he is not bad against defence. Look at about 4:00 in this match:

Getting back to the blade: it's clearly an oversized head, which rules out Hurricane Classic, doesn't it? From that cellphone pic I couldn't see the handle well enough.

Hou is rather cool (and not always very sportsmen-like :lol: ):

Hmmm... interesting.
Is it illegal to do that while receiving serves?
I didn't find his attitude that wrong... well, at least the first time :D

I don't find his attitude cool or bad ass, but simply arrogant. There are other things in life more important than winning a game, like sportmanship (i.e. respect). He's lucky the other guy didn't take a swing at him after the game was finished. One day that luck will be over.

I don't think Hou should have done it on purpose the second time but I don't think it was out of line the first time.
Gacina was probably frustrated but his complain was not better.
He stopped the point. That's not up to him to decide what is right or wrong... there are judges for that.

i didnt see anything wrong in the reception.
Like in tenis when players make a little jump when receiving services.
I think that Gacina was frustraded and lost his attention ( you can see that in the final of the set)

I think you can't disturb the game with noises when the opponent is hitting, for example you can grunt when you hit the ball, but you cant do it when the opponent is.
I may be wrong, but i think it was not intentional the first time, he was just being ready and active. I know it was a bad thing to do, but i seriously laughed a lot when he did it again on purpose :lol:
Of course, Gacina made a mistake when he lost his calmness and focus because of this quite futile matter...
