    Steen Pedersen agrees with my thinking - puzzled by Ginting's selection.

    These political discussions annoy me. What about you?

    Anthony Ginting finally lost his first team-event match as Jan O' Joergensen takes the match in straight-sets 21-17, 21-12. Anthony simply made too many errors and couldn't find a way to get past the Danes. Treat this as a learning experience and come back stronger 2 years later!

    INA's MD2 Angga Pratama/Ricky Karanda Suwardi have to take the next tie to prevent DEN from winning the Thomas Cup for the first-time.

    Jonatan Christie has been the only one of the MS trio from Indo that has regularly challenged top 5-10 players. But he is the youngest of them all, being only 18, and perhaps the pressure may have been too much.

    I do feel like DEN will take MD too..
    INA 2nd MD is not really strong and consistent compare to Ahsan/Setiawan

    They've played once before, and it went to three sets. Anything could happen.

    Yes Hidayat won his first international title at the age of 15. Ridiculous, must still be a record?

    You're referring to the Qing Dynasty which made a terrible mistake of isolating itself due to internal corruption and power struggle, despite reformer Kang Youwei's efforts. For the earlier centuries, it's the rest of the world holding China in awe and eager to learn from her, Marco Polo travelling all the way to China is one prominent example.

    Actually, if you asked the experts, it's not only China learning from the world but also the other way nowadays, both ways.

    No one is interested in politics here. Do not bring unnecessary matters.

    Putting Ihsan Maulana Mustofa as MS3 is both a risk and also an opportunity. I personally think DEN will win the Cup but anything can happen. INA has to first win the next tie.

    It depends on what you understand and mean by Communism and Capitalism, a very huge topic, let's not get into the discussion here, too complicated. Suffice for me to say, China is building Socialism with Chinese characteristics, to use Deng Xiaoping's famous words.

    Difficult time for INA unless this young MD can cause an upset.

    Loh, sir, your level of intellect and global awareness far exceeds the average forum participant here, in this case, dogged (and dogmatic?) uni-dimensional fans who lack broader perspectives of sport and the world.

    Ah, how youth is wasted on the young...
