Tie has second thoughts on retiring
Tie Yana's retirement talk may have been premature. The Hong Kong player, who said on Wednesday these Games would be her swansong, backtracked yesterday, despite ending her campaign empty-handed as she lost 4-1 in singles to Wang Nan of China. 'I am in no rush to decide my future as the Olympic Games have just finished for me,' said the 29-year-old. Tie's defeat meant all Hong Kong's women's medal hopes were gone. In the men's singles, Li Ching was beaten in the fourth round last night, losing to Tan Ruiwu of Croatia 4-2.
