In a basketball World Cup qualifier, Asian region, between China and Chinese Taipei the other day, a Taipei player grasped with his arm around the neck of a China player while scrambling for a rebound. That was a not an uncommon scene in basketball game. But when that round was over, the arm was still on the neck for a second or two. So that China player pushed his opponent away, and the self-restraint from either side had avoided a possible melee.
In Malaysian Open yesterday, Chen Yufei beat Tai Tsu-Ying 2-1 in semi-final. Tai could have won the game, but she squandered the big lead in the middle stage of 2nd and 3rd set probably because of a scratch in her elbow amid the game.
