    Head-to-head

    Taufik vs Chen Hong : 4-0
    - Taufik's latest victory was last year's final, winning 15-12, 15-12

    Sang/Zheng vs Pramote/Tesana : 0-0
    - Have not play each other before. Pramote is the super-senior among the 4 finalists
    :)

    Wang Chen vs Xie XF : 0-2
    - Xie trashed Wang Chen in their last meeting in Tokyo this year, winning 11-3, 11-0

    Gao/Huang vs Yang/Zhang : 2-2
    - Yang/Zhang were the winner in their last week's clash. However, Gao/Huang will be eager to prove their no 1 status.

    Kim/Ra vs Zhang/Gao : 6-3
    - The Koreans are inching further away, score emphatic wins in last 2 meetings.

    Taufik seems invincible at home, but not the other Indonesians.

    Is Taufik too many levels above his teamates?

    If I were Chen Hong, I will just pull out from tomorrow's final and conserve my energy for next week's Malaysian Open.
    Why exert yourself when you almost have no chance of winning?:D
    He has not beaten Taufik before and what else can be expected from him.... more so in front of his rival's fans?

    Li Yongbo is certainly happy that you are not Chen Hong :). Chen Hong certainly has a chance of beating Taufik, eventhough the odds are heavily aganist him. The chance of Chen beating Taufik is probably comparable to the chance of Zhang/Gao beating Kim/Ra (ie possible but not likely), but if Chen Hong plays his best game, there is no gurantee that Taufik beat him.

    I dont think there is no chance for Chen Hong to beat Taufik in the final. Just take a look at WS in the recent Spore and Indo Open, Zhang Ning and Wang Chen have never beaten Zhou Mi in the past international match. However, both of them have break the spell.....
    Therefore Taufik may seems to have a higher bet but i think that it is a 50-50 winning! :)

    Indonesian Open XD Finals

    Poor Zhang and Gao again lost to the Koreans, Kim and Ra, this time the Chinese almost caused an upset when the took the first game 15-10 and was leading in the second before losing out 11-15. The Koreans attacked more in the later stages to pile up the points. In the third game, the Koreans maintained their composure and steadily built up a strong lead to change sides first. From thence on, there was no stopping them with the erratic Zhang make most of the unforced errors. The rubber ended in a disappointing 15-6 in favour of the Koreans.

    Wonder whether the Chinese can avenge their two recent defeats in the forthcoming Malaysian Open?

    I was able to watch the Open live by courtesy of TV Malaysia. Now, at about 3 pm, S'pore time, the MD between the Thais and the Chinese are in progress. I'm looking forward to the MS between Taufik Hidayat and Chen Hong, who will certainly face a hard time in front of the largely "native fans". It will prove he is the undisputed World No. One, if Chen Hong manages to win in such an "unfavourable" setting.

    The Thais nearly won against the Chinese

    The older Thai pair of Pramote/Tesana almost created an upset over their younger Chinese opponents of Sang/Zheng when they eventually lost 17-16, 15-17 and 5-15.

    In the second game the Thais were leading 14-9 at one stage but when Pramote was faulted for service, there was no turning back for the Chinese who gained confidence and slowly creeped up on their more experienced counterparts.

    The Chinese were on the verge of taking the second game when they were up 16-14, but Pramote, who had surprised with his tricky net play again won with a net shot to take back the service. He won another point for the Thais, 15-16, with his favourite overhead backhand whip rather than a smash. But the Chinese soon won back the service and the last point was the most thrilling with the Chinese relentlessly punishing the Thais with a string of smashes, one of which was a sure winner which the Thais managed to save, but not the last one which clinched the winner for the Chinese and an extension of the match to three games. Unfortunatley the rubber proved to be a rather relatively timid affair which the Chinese won convincingly.

    It was really unfortunate for the Thais who came so close to winning the second game and the Indonesian Open crown, which will certainly give them valuable Olympic points.

    Promet, the older of the two Thais, was magnificent at the net and time and again he caught the Chinese by surprise, although he made a few net mistakes during the third game possibly through fatigue. His overhead backhand whip is a delight to watch, which he executes with speed, surprise and accuracy. His partner, Tesana, who is stockily built, has a booming smash which he played to great advantage and from which he scored a number of vital points.

    In the end, the Thais made more unforced errors, especially at the net and defensively, lifted the bird outside the baseline on too many occasions to give the Chinese an easy win in the rubber.

    That's just what Chen Hong did, going thru the motions.

    I dont think its because crowd bothered him, its likely to be because of playing too

    many tournaments continuously with no rest and the risk of getting injured.

    Good commentary by Loh but Zheng and Sang should have realised that they were

    playing someone 36 years old and could have saved some of their own energy.

    Re: Indonesian Open XD Finals

    Ra was obviously tired out from her long WD semifinal match yesterday. She made even more un-Ra errors than she would usually, hitting into the net and way off the sidelines. Kim made more mistakes than usual too. Luckily they managed to recover in time. :) It was quite surprising when the Koreans just surged ahead after being tied-up at 6-6 all in the third game.

    Congrats to Ra and Kim!! Hopefully they can maintain their form over the year (that's a long time really) and retire with their dreams fulfilled.

    Re: walkover ladies doubles

    Thanks Zax. :)

    Nope, I'll not be going to Malaysia Open as it will play in another state which is quite far from where i stayed. However, i went for singapore open last week which were much nearer.

    Re: MS RESULTS

    Truly as what I expected!;)
    Chen Hong is deservely the better player, but there's no way for him to secure his first over Taufik in Indonesia.
    However, there's always another chance to humiliate Taufik in other side of the globe, just like what Bao CL did in Birmingham!:)
