    2009 Swiss Open: If LCW is to meet TH at the Quarter-Finals

    .
    Correct ... If LCW is to meet TH at the Quarter-Finals, then LCW will need to defeat some experienced players first, namely;

    KT (JPN) in Round 1, and then
    EP (NED) or BP (THA) in Round 2.

    IMHO, LCW can do it.

    I don't think GWJ will be a tougher opponent for TH than Sasaki. Although GWJ is a bit better than Sasaki, TH even in his prime always has difficulty dealing with players who are willing and able to run like hell. Sasaki is of that type while GWJ is not.

    Oh...I forgot something....as AE was his first independent journey as a fully professional player...it was considered " a driving test"....

    As TH has not demonstrated his 7 weapons of mass destruction, perhaps we must be a bit patient....But LCW and LD should watch out....:D

    u again showed us u have better stamina than taufik lol.
    I had praised u on your TH cheering stamina, A1 quality!!!!
    Driving test? If TH's playability is that weak and sensitive to who is his sponsors, u r fooling yourself coz u can't fool me. This 09 AE was his most wanted title since 2005, he went and really prepared for it, all he achieved was QF. Let me tell you, if TH was still under PBSI, he would skipped swiss open for some rest since swiss isn't a big tournament. However, since he is now an independent contractor, HE HAS TO WORK or at least going through the motion of doing some playing. No play no pay LOL. Welcome to the real world, TH.

    Taufik's ready! Well, AE's not doing so bad for him. I think he had better result when he's out of PBSI.
    And pardon me, but i guess he's being payed more without PBSI. No 'share-share' la.

    I would rate Sho Sasaki higher than Gong Weijie. Chen Jin played both of them in the AE and found Sasaki much tougher to deal with.

    That's why we find it difficult to predict winners for our Badminton matches

    That's why we find it difficult to predict winners for our Badminton matches.

    Let's consider 3 players: A, B and C.
    If A can defeat B, and B can defeat C, it doesn't mean that A can defeat C easily.
