taufik is well known for his hot temper and his outspokeness. well here are some comments from him. "i am a man, he is just a child!" -referring to bao chulai "i dont accept the nickname 'super dan'. he had only won a few championships, how about asia game and olympics? he never got these titles. from my point of view, he has the power, but his techniques is not as good as mine. to win him is not hard." "among the elite shuttlers, not many of them can be my friends, maybe girls like me more. i always feel good friends one or two is enough. in chinese team, the only one who can be my friend is xia xuanze." -when asked why he doesnt acknowledge lin dan and bao chunlai when they meet. "i'm going to beat lin dan in front of his home ground!" "i really dislike the korean team, during the asia game they bullied us." "about chen hong, i never worry. i won all of our 6 meetings. during the japan open, i was too tired after beating gade, so i gave him(chen hong) a chance."
