I do not have a good feeling about the newly propose system; it has nothing to do whether it is 7 points, 15 points, 21 point, 36 points or 100 points. It is to do with the fact that it has taken away the possibility of no one could win a point at the end of a rally. By taking away that possibility; I believe it has changed the fundamental part of the badminton game. The newly propose system will no longer provide the charm of the game that could go on for long duration (forever!) when no one could advance a single point! Have you ever hear the old story of Indonesian coach telling his ace players; Rudy Hartono or Muljadi to keep Malaysian new rising star Punch Gunalan on the court as long as they could? It is a well known fact that Punch Gunalan was an all out attacking player but he would be very tired and became erratic if you could keep him on the court for 45 minutes!(That is my own version of story!). If only we could have used this system in early 70’s may be Malaysia would have won more Thomas cup and All England! Recently I was watching Lee Chong Wai vs Cheng Hong at All England (I did wish Chong Wai a very good luck before the game as I did not know what he was eating before in a Chinese restaurant!). I remember 1st set Cheng Hong was attacking all over the court; and won the set easily; in the 2nd set Cheng Hong continued the same game plan and was leading with big margin at 13 or 14, well Chong Wai pulled back slowly and won the set. It was all over for Cheng Hong in 3rd set; I supposed mentally and physically he was drained by Lee Chong Wai. It was a perfect game strategy by Lee Chong Wai. The bottom line here is I have to throw away my book “The art of war” as it is no longer apply to badminton; I shall now study the game strategy of volleyball; the next question my kids might ask if they could dress like beach volleyball players to play badminton…in an indoor beach of course.
