    Then, after 2 weeks of the super series final, top players have to battle in malaysia open and korea open...? That would be quite tiring for some players... :)

    According to RTM Commentator, SS Finals will be held Jan 2-6 in ALor Setar,Kedah. Those from Kedah will be extremely (X10) happy. COmmentator said they chose Kedah cos 2008 is visit Kedah year.

    Anyway, TBH should be happy, it's his hometown.

    More interestingly, GD sports commentator said When this last tourney is over, LCw and girlfriend will have holiday back in Penang. And they immediately mentioned WMC. Very direct, China media, here it's never mentioned, just hinted.

    Back-to-back SS title for both INA World Champions, well done to end this year! Very interesting match in XD when Nova/Lilyana perform their best to beat the most successful XD pair in SS tour. Yeah, only INA pair can troubling them beside Sudket/Saralee, seems the rivalry between INA-CHN in this division will continue next year...

    Good point.Unless someone can point out otherwise,all disputed calls had favoured CHN in both CO and HKO.
    However it would be foolish for non-CHN players to expect otherwise.It is still possible to win as THA XD proved it in CO, though almost impossible in the horrific MSF conditions of CO.
    But players have choices.There are 14 major tournaments.In the run to maximise OG08 ranking points, it makes sense to play all the SS.After that it makes sense to be highly selective.
    For example, if LCW were to win at least 4 SS titles next year before CO08 and HKO08,he should have the privilege of skipping definitely CO08 and maybe HKO08. Resting would reduce burnout and help recharge him so his career is not shortened.Why go to CO08 to try and spoil the party and be a victim of much nasty intrigue if he can avoid it?
    Today's MSF is civilised.LD behaved gracious and showed much maturity.But he proved how much concentration is needed to win. In G1, he complained of many distractions and that probably led to many unforced errors and his washout score.(Now you know why LCW lost in CO). Once LD started to focus, so did his game.But LCW can be proud of his performance despite his slower speed.I expected him to go out tamely in 2 games but he managed to give the crowd great value for money.
    It's great to know that so many believe LCW can still defeat LD even under less favourable conditions.They certainly think very highly of LCW.
    Hope LCW gets to heal his knees completely. Playing with pain is no joke and not the way to win.
