Oh! The stadium is quite full compared to yesterday....
yeah..the other one is Gopi
Wong Wing Ki is playing at Chinese national game now
Wong Wing Ki withdrew from IBL because of injury.
Actually, he is playing at Chinese national games now, he did pretty good so far there, winning 4 matches already! Pretty busy too, without any sign of injury at all !
I believe Wong's withdrawal for his low paid at auction. Comparing another Hong Kong player Hu Yun who skipped Chinese national game and playing at IBL's pay:
Hu Yun (Hong Kong) (Men's Singles) 50,000
Wong Wing Ki (H.K.) (Men's Singles) 20,000
By the way, there is no prize or payment at all at Chinese national games.
Lee chong wei is good at mixed better than Vlad. LCW won the Selangor open mixed in 2012 against chan and goh who are currently 5th ranked in the world at mixed nd a trained pairing.
Wow, interesting stuff!!! Where u get that information? thanks.
some years back, in local tournamentlee chong wei was mixed double champion partnering vivian ho against malaysia no.1 pairing of chan peng soon & goh liu ying
Haha yeah last year check post 525
Lee chong wei also very good in doubles during his teens...
this wouldn't be a good format because you would have to guarantee the rankings are matched at the auction. It would obviate one of the aims of IBL which is to give greater exposure to the Indian players.
In fact, in HK, we do have team competitions where the better person doesn't necessarily play at first singles/doubles. It makes for interesting tactical decisions and double guessing.
Yes, it is confusing to the layman at first. Does it make a difference? No. Can people learn a new format? Well, yes! It's not really that hard to understand.
Yeah, I remember that. I fell in love with Vivian since then...
You don't have to make sure there is any matching, as I said if you do not have an A available you can play a B against him or a C if you want. But for men's singles 2 you can't play a higher category than you did for MS1. Simple and effective.
It is a problem because teams are paying vast amounts of money for a guaranteed win when effectively that win is cancelled out. That makes no sense and is counter productive. Looks like IBL agreed today.
In that case you just buy LCW and SN and you win the tournament???
Their combined price was 135K+120K out of 275K dollars and you still save some money...
I am going by LCW as a very good doubles player and I dont think SN would fair too bad either if she has LCW by her side
(since the opposition in XD as best could be JF+AP)
Ivanov seems to be not playing today, Injured? pulled out?
I think he is fine. They are getting their money's worth by putting LCW on twice and also for the entertainment factor of putting two legends together in mixed. And they are giving the Indian men's doubles a chance, just for the spirit of the league and kkk/tbh too strong anyways. Zwiebler needed for a better chance at another point, therefore no place for Vlad today
Another controversy from the big-mouth of TH:
That's not going to work for so many reasons
Whats happening ni the doubles....? Indian unheard of players leading the seasoned combination of KKK/Tan 19-12
They are playing really well. KKK/TBH playing unforced errors being lazy not trying for some reason
Seems its Mumbai's day today...
