    What? After two quarterfinals, he becomes mr quarterfinalist? Give him a break. It's not as if he's not trying.

    This is what i couldn't understand. Despite his injury,his still entered the national tournament. Why IS it so important to keep his unbeaten record on home soil rather than nursing his injury? He might exagerate his injury as well.

    a good sportman will know tat losing is losing no matter watsoever the reason is....it's just like the performance of Hafiz before this, yoyo'ing around. We supporters of LCW shouldnt give ourselves excuse of why he lost again this time because of this, this n this.....He is just not as good as the others, thats why he lost. Maybe he got lucky before this.....but not anymore.

    now koo/tan are malaysia's biggest hope of winning a title in KO....
    but im not counting out Hafiz 100% as he is famous for surprising(sometimes good, sometimes bad surprises) us.....

    so lets all giv them our full support n BASH the hell out of them when the time comes..hehe....

    btw, watching hafiz play really makes me nervous..he sometimes win a point in the most brilliant fashion and then he loses the next point in the most frustrating way ever....

    so to everyone watching hafiz play tomorrow(and maybe on sunday also), make sure there arent any glass items nearby..haha....juz a frendly reminder..

    Wow! Haven't been following but I just went to Tournament Software and found that:

    +Tony/Candra beat Fu/Cai. Congrats! USA! USA!

    +Nothing new, looks like it's going to be another all Chinese WS Final. :p

    +Chen Jin beat LCW, no small feat. Could be another all Chinese MS Final. :D

    +XD: status quo. I say time and time again, Robertson/Emms is a force to be reckoned with. And Gao Ling has got to be the best women's mixed player with recent...maybe even distant memory. As long as you pair her up with a guy that can keep hammering the bird, GL will win.

    I think by the time Korea Open is over, KKK/TBH ranking should rise further as they are already in the SF. I hope they do well in All England.

    so now the bashing begins when a player plays badly for a few tournaments? what happened to SUPPORTING YOUR PLAYERS??? my friends?

    Cai/Fu wins some and lose some, Bao wins some and lose some, every player from every country wins some and lose some tournaments, as there is only one champion afterall. do you see us bash them when they don't make it to the top when they are in bad form? NO! we sure are disappointed, but we still SUPPORT THEM, in the least by NOT criticizing their loss. i am quite disappointed by the attitude of some fans here. i think some of you guys needs to rethink how a fan is supposed to behave.

    yeah, i agree with you kwun.. it's always the case, when our players start winning, they will cheer and create a hooray for them.. but when the players lose, people will start critisising them.. definately, these are not true supporters.. true supporters will support their players no matter how good or bad they perform.. go on chong wei! see you in All England in march.. :)

    I'm sad for FU/CAI tandem, maybe they should try a different approach next time.

    Agree wholeheartedly. Anyone can jump on the bandwagon when someone's a winner.

    A true fan is one that supports his/her player through thick and thin. Especially through thin. When your player is at rock bottom and you still support him/her, you are a true fan.

    Also, now and then it's good to congratulation your opponents. I rarely see that here. :p In every other sport I played, in the U.S., win or lose, we congratulate the opponent. :)

    Disagree, losing 21-19, 21-19 to one of the bests is nothing to be disappointed about. With the NSS, it's even more of a fine line between winning and losing.

    Fans must also allow that the opponents are very good players. We should support our favourite players when they are trying their best. We should chide them when they just give up, but we must give them the benefit of the doubt. After all, the player is the one who suffers the loss the most.

    Badminton players should be more like American College Football Coaches. They always give high praise to their opponent before the games even if the opponent isn't that good.

    Why?

    Simple.

    If you win, you "beat" a good team. Good for your rankings.

    If you lose and you bashed your opponent, what does that make you? After all, you lost to them. :p

    Agree with kwun that we should support the players through thick and thin. We shouldn't call them 'lousy' players or Mr Quarter FInalist just bcoz of the recent defeats. There is no so-called lousy player in my opinion. For Lee Chong Wei, though i am disappointed with his poor run of form, i still support him, my most favourite MS player at this moment. But i think that Li Mao and LCW should do some analysis rite now and make some improvement. AND i don't agree with him playing in the tournaments before with injury along. It could exagerate his injury.

    Quickie comments from the QF day..

    ..(just finished reading the rest of the posts)..
    phew, well, what can i say..It was another thrilling day, full of pent-up emotions, up til the LCW vs. CJ match:cool: ...Even the server was affected by the excitement as, i believe, it crashed momentarily last night as well:p...Anyways:
    - I didnt' notice any big upsets on the QF day...as all the projected winners were able to squeeze thru..But there were lots of close and exciting matches nonetheless..;)
    - The match between LCW vs. CJ sounded great. I know LCW has been battling a bit of a nagging injury, but to see him fight all the way til the 3rd set must be quite encouraging. So, M'sian fans, don't let his lost put you down. It's still early in the yr and he still has time to make it up this yr.;)
    - Of couse, what else can we say abt the veteran pair of Tony & Candra. After being denied a title last week in the MO, being hungry to win this KO would be an understatement, IMO.;) :cool:
    ..once again, thanks again for all the entertaining play by play and scores update:)..and looking fw to more of the same on the SF day..;) :cool:
