May be it's Malaysia's Punch Gunalan.
I think it's Sven Pri of Denmark. Rudy went on to win the title...
if i m not wrong, Rudy Hartono was still active playing till late 70s (his last AE final appearance ws 1978) and played in 1982 Thomas Cup final as well. Morten Frost on the othr hand started playing in the late 70s, so they might have met somewhere..
Credit should also go to his first coach.The unsung hero who mould lcw to be a world class player now.
Slipping vs. Plain Diving
Umpires should make a point to distinguish between the genuine case of players slipping due to the wet floor as apposed to just plain diving before calling for the use of the mop. I can't help noticing occasions when players tend to make a meal out of their falls by insisting on the use of the mop even though the element of slipping was in doubt.... clearly they had to dive to retrieve the shuttle.
Aren't those unecessary moppings then serve as masks to assuage their deflated egos?
why shouldn't the mop be called for after a dive? surely some sweat droplets would have landed on the floor after a dive, and so to prevent potential slipping, a mop-up would be ideal?
From that perspective, yes I see the point too.
I schedule to be in Singapore this weekend (20th Aug). Do you still have the Singapore Open Taufik-LinDan, MD final?
