    To answer those..

    - Yes, correct. What other match was i commenting abt??
    - Yes, correct.
    - I noticed the opposite when compared to the 1st game; maybe KKK didn't have much chance to play the front/net in the 2nd game thus it seemed KKK made more errors. My point is, when KKK was at the front/net, in that match, the MAS pair did more positives as TBH was able to thrown down his booming & thunderous smashes from the back. Listen also to Gillian Clark's comments also towards the end of the 2nd game and in the 3rd game. She also noticed the same trend.

    I saw the match also..I agree with Ctjcad that MAS got more points with KKK on the front..TBH is not good at the net...KKK is much much better..as long as KKK can strategize the game plan, TBH gets easier job to do...

    Hope everything is crystal clear now..

    - I did not specifically mentioned KKK net advantage was glaring in the 2nd game. I meant, the difference from the 1st and 2nd game was glaring esp. when KKK was/wasn't at the front/net.
    - Correct, KKK didn't have much chance to make plays @ the front/net in the 2nd game. At least that's what i observed.
    - No more confusion, i hope.;):cool:

    Badminton: Kien Keat humbled by honour

    WORLD No 1 doubles pair Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong will be Malaysia's flag bearers in Asian Games opening ceremony in Guangzhou.
    Kien Keat-Boon Heong will hoist the national flag and lead the Malaysian contingent at Pearl River on Nov 12.

    "This is without a doubt the greatest honour of my sporting life. It will spur me to retain the doubles gold medal in Guangzhou," said Kien Keat, after the flag handing over ceremony at Parliament House in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

    "I don't like to say that I will be leading. I am just one of the two guys to walk in first and there will be 335 incredible athletes behind me.

    "Hoisting the national flag brings greater responsibility. I must show a good example by doing well. But of course it does not add pressure."

    Kien Keat-Boon Heong, who rose to stardom by bagging a surprise gold at the 2006 Doha Asian Games, are confident of retaining their title.

    The Malaysian pair, who lost to China's Cai Yun-Hai Feng in the World Championship final and also at the Japan Open, will be out to exact revenge over the World No 9 pair should they meet for the gold medal in Guangzhou.

    But to make the final, Kien Keat-Boon Heong will have to overcome several top pairs, including South Korea's Ko Sung Hyun-Yoo Yeon Seong, Taiwan's Fang Chieh Min-Lee Sheng Mu, Indonesia's Mohd Ahsan-Alven Yulianto and China's Guo Zhengdong-Xu Chen.

    "My priority is to give my best. Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng are in the other half of the draw but it does not mean our route to the final is going to be easy.

    "We cannot take our opponents lightly especially Guo Zhengdong-Xu Chen, who we will likely meet in the semi-finals," said Kien Keat, who won three gold medals at last month's New Delhi Commonwealth Games.

    Since the other flag bearer news is in downhill thread, let this one be here, lol.
    Seems the decision makers decided TBH must also be in, cannot separate from partner. :p
    How does it work that 2 person become the flag bearer? One carry the flag half way, the 2nd the other half? Or KKK carry the flag, TBH hold it up/wave it around at certain points, wakaka.

    Kien Keat, Boon Heong hungry to end chase for the big one

    By RAJES PAUL

    KUALA LUMPUR: National doubles shuttlers Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are all ready to end their elusive chase for a major title this year at the Asian Games in Guangzhou.
    They are the most successful pair in the country but have yet to win a major crown this year.
    They came close at the World Championships in Paris in August but lost to Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China in the final.
    Kien Keat said it was “time for us to nail a big one”.
    “Boon Heong and I are now focused on winning all the majors. We are not going to look at smaller tournaments anymore,” said Kien Keat.
    [​IMG]
    Pair on a mission: Koo Kien Keat (right) and Tan Boon Heong have yet to win a major title this year.
    “It will be all about making history and creating records ... so I am really taking this Asian Games seriously.”
    If Kien Keat-Boon Heong can defend the Asian Games gold, they will be the second Malaysian pair to do so. Tan Yee Khan-Ng Boon Bee won the gold medal at the 1962 Jakarta Games and 1966 Bangkok Games.
    In fact, Boon Bee is Malaysia most successful player in the series as he went on to win the men’s doubles gold in his third consecutive Asiad at the 1970 Bangkok Games with Punch Gunalan.
    Kien Keat, who won three gold medals at last month’s Commonwealth Games in India, said they were prepared mentally and physically. “The only problem with Boon Heong and I is that we are slow starters and sometimes our opponents take advantage of this,” he said.
    “We did not take part in the last two tournaments in Denmark and France.
    “Boon Heong and I need regular competitions to keep us on our toes. Hopefully, we will be on guard.”
    Kien Keat-Boon Heong will be Malaysia’s flag bearers for the first time but said it would not put any undue pressure on them.
    “In fact, we hope to be good role models for the whole Malaysian contingent. Hopefully, our determination to bring glory to the country will also inspire others in the team,” said Kien Keat.
    Asked about their challengers in the Asiad, Kien Keat said: “For now, our main challengers are Cai Yun-Haifeng but we will not underestimate others, like Markis Kido-Hendra Gunawan of Indonesia and South Koreans Lee Yong-dae-Jung Jae-sung, although they have not been playing well lately.”
    Kien Keat-Boon Heong, however, will have to be wary of South Korean darkhorses Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong. The pairs are likely to meet in the quarter-finals.
    The others in the Malay­sians’ half are Taiwan’s Fang Chieh-min-Lee Sheng-mu, China’s Guo Zhengdong-Xu Chen and Indonesia’s Mohd Ahsan-Alven Yulianto.
    The fight will be more intense in the lower half of the draw, which includes second seeds Markis-Hendra, Jae-sung-Yong-dae and Cai Yun-Haifeng.
    Malaysia’s second pair of Mak Hee Chun-Tan Wee Kiong will probably face Markis-Hendra in the second round. But first, they must get past Japan’s Hiroyuki Endo-Kenichi Hayakawa.
