    Wow, good showing by Malaysia in Men's friendlies. WCH sure dispatched Lee HI quickly. It seems Lee can only pull off great victories at certain times.

    Korean's weakest point though, is probably their women's singles. They should have played Jae Youn Jun who (I think) is better, instead of Kim Kyeung Ran.

    The local paper highlighted Wong Mew Choo's efforts against Kim Yeung-ran which is considered quite remarkable.

    I have a feeling that Mew Choo is likely to go far if she keeps getting quality matches like this.

    Bring on China! :D

    Yes, I think she is shaping up nicely. I have seen her play before, very good racquet skills and quite fast around the court.
    However, like most Malaysian lady-players, she is quite small in size and probably not much power. But her skill makes up for it.

    why choose that hour to come back???? should choose a day early.... :D
    maybe when you reach klia you can sit the ERL to KL sentral then take Putra LRT to Masjid Jamek later switch to Star LRT to Maluri Station and walk all the way straight with your lugguge to the stadium...cause i don't think they'll finish at time ....and like before..they'll rest before they go back...so maybe can have the chance to at lease meet them...
    HAHA...
    or see the last few points....
    :D

    Missed the 1st and 2nd sets of Hashim vs Shon!!

    Well i missed the slot from 6.20 to 7.00.

    You ddn't missed much in Roslin vs Shon, it is the perfect eg

    of how not to play modern badminto nowadays.

    I think the game was almost 90 mins long.

    Just wondering

    I noticed Shon Seung Mo and Lee Hyun IL using the new Armortec 700. Were KDM and HTK using the AT700 as well? I didn't catch that match.

    Amor what ?

    After going thru all the hooha on Titaniums, Isometrics etc etc

    I;ve gone back to using my trusty Cab 21.

    i've could have sworn hearing Kim calling out to Choong and Chan

    "toro, Toro" during the match. Ha was limping and I don't think the Korean pair

    played allout.l

    Anybody have the results for Leg 2 in Kota Bharu? Strange enough I didn't see it on the papers.

    I watched the game yesterday on TV.

    1 : 1st Doubles between Chan CM-Choong TF and Kim DM-Ha TK was pretty good although the Malaysians could not really match up to the class of the Koreans.

    The encouraging part is to actually see Chan-Choong take the initiative to actually attack instead of being on the receiving end of all the Koreans could give them.

    There's still defensive lapses as noticed on the second set when during a rally, both Malaysians were forced to the right side of their courts, opening up a large area for Ha TK to just drive it over. Maybe it's just that they seldom play together.

    There had been a question to why Chan-Chew wasn't fielded together against the world no one pair. It could have been a golden opportunity for the Malaysian pair to learn some quality lessons from their world class opponents.

    2: Roslin Hashim vs Shon Sheung-mo

    Maybe because of watching the 1st doubles game I find this somewhat boring. I had no doubt that Roslin could beat Shon but his lapses of concentration during the final parts of the second set really got on my nerves. As modius had said, this is perfect example of how NOT to play badminton.

    3: Malaysian Girls

    What a pity really. I'm sure they gave their best to try to play their Korean counterparts but the sad thing is that they have already lost part of the game before it started. When Chan-Choong put up a fight to Kim-Ha, the crowd went 'woo' 'haa' 'haa' 'waa',

    Where was that chant when the girls played? I didn't get to see WongMC play Ra KM but she might have had the chance to beat the Korean 3 out of 3 if only the crowd were behind her.

    This is perhaps another reason why Malaysian women can't seem to do well enough against international opponents; their own countrymen and women simply don't care. Everybody had their eye fixed on seeing Ha TK whip the shuttle into Chan CM's face but nobody seem to care much when the girls played.

    The usual $0.02 from the spectators will likely be like this "... haiya, Korea so strong one, where can they win? Don't need to play also know lar they will lose...".

    *Sigh*

    4: Wong Mew Choo

    She beat Ra Kyeung-min twice and lost once. Does this mean anything? I haven't seen her play against the likes of Wang Chen or Gong Zi Chao but I must commend that she could only get better with more and more quality opponents to match wits and skills against.

    The expected $0.02 from the typical ah beng or ah lian "... haiya.. Malaysia so hot... Korea come they feel tired mah... that's why she win lor... if not where got chance... "

    Double *sigh*
    .

    5: Korean Girls

    Ra Kyeung-min
    Ra yeung-min K
    Ra yeung-imn K
    Ra yeung-n Kim
    Ran yeung Kim
    yeung Ran Kim
    Kim Yeung-ran !

    6: Korean Girls #2

    Choi Sung-hui aka Shoo of SES. :D

    Ra Kyung-min and Kim Yeung-ran are 2 different players.
    Ra is a double specialists, Kim is the full time singles player.
    Wong Mew Choo actually played Kim 3 times in this series (won the 1st two showdown, but lost the 3rd one in KL), instead of Ra.
    The RTM commentator got it wrong too... ;)

    The 1st doubles was actually the match of the day. IMHO, Chan-Choong is a better combination than Chan-Chew. Chew has the knack of making lots of unforced errors when it matters most, and he's not mentally strong enough to take on top Korean and Indonesian pairs.

    The fact that Chan-Chew lost to the scratch pair of Kim DM-Lee DS in the 1st leg really irritates me. Despite having the upperhand (after 'injuring' Lee DS's nose or what-so-ever), the Malaysian duo failed to press on to win. Something wrong with their mental power.

    It's quite a pity that Lee Tsuen Seng did not get the opportunity to play either of the top 2 Koreans (faced Korean junior in both occasions). Anyway, this is Misbun's prerogative...
    :mad:

    Lee Tsuen seng's match is interesting.park is I think 17 and

    eligible to play again in next asian Champs.

    How do you rate Lee's chance in World champs, and how would you compare the

    maturity of Park and Lee Ts's game ?

    Of course, whizkelv... just some post-tournament entertainment :D

    As for the commentator, this reminds me of the Olympic episode of (translation to English) "... and now comes the contingent from Zimbabwe........... or Denmark.... ".

    I am still wondering about what makes Korean men double such powerful opponents that make them specialists at the game in comparison to many other countries in the world. Is it their training mentality, social norm or Korean ginseng?
