    Biggest result of the day: Ronald losing to Kenichi Tago. I happened to be sleeping throughout this match.

    Ouch....Ronald Susilo lost to Japan's rising star, the 2006 AJC Champion, Kenichi Tago in rubber sets (20-22 in the 3rd set). That caused SIN's downfall :mad: The doubles are split as expected. What a close one.....

    I think I wrote a post long time ago to keep an eye on Tago :) really talented youngster.. He was down i think 7-12 in the second and was able to turn the match around, and become Japans hero of the day!! wow!!

    Wow, can't imagine Sudket and Saralee lost to relatively unknown players from HK.

    why did susilo lose! and why in the first place was he fielded! when i saw the line-up i was like OMG, and now thanks to this smart line-up singapore will stay in div 2 for the next 4 years and they only have themselves to blame. i don't see how they can ever beat thailand 2 years down the road.:mad:

    Big credit goes to Park Ju-Bong, great doubles player, who has been instrumental since he started as the coach for the Japanes national team! Congratulations to the team and the coach!!!

    I agree Ronald should not have lost. But Tago is a young man inspired with risk taking, he made so many mistakes and almost had no energy left in the final few points. But this time, Tago's gamble paid off, with help from one very bad line call in 2nd game.

    Similarly, I believe SIN should have put up Li Li against Hirose, the matchup will be more even. No complaints for the doubles matches, all were keenly contested but when the score is 2-2 with WD up, the cute girls will always have the last laugh.

    The THA team was badly undone by the loss of their crack XD pair, and now have to go down. Very uncharacteristic of them.

    Similarly, the MAS WD pair chose not to show up against DEN, after their MD compatriots blew up against ENG. However, Koo/Tan redeemed themselves with a better display, but I can't help seeing that Tan is slower than usual though Koo is his normal confident self.

    Yet both were outshone by the new XD combination. Although not expected to win, they made a great effort and lost only by a whisker. Tan is very talented, but Woon needs more work and hardly challenged Britta at the net. In fact, if you remove the free cheap points out of the equation, MAS XD actually outscored DEN. All they need is composure and some understanding of tactical play.
