    Such a disrespectful comment doesn't even deserve a reply ;):p Maybe he found some magic mushrooms in the woods today? :D

    For the record: Tony is the man, followed by LYD and HS ... I don't know what patriots voted for the leading two?? ;)

    I definitely meant no disrespect :confused:

    Also, I patriotically voted for KKK. Even though I'm not Malaysian.

    An invitation to junior nationals would be a good start?

    Probably fresh in the memory from the All England? :cool:

    Didn't see it there inside the quote box :D. In Holland you have to at least be in a county squad to enter and if not you have to apply for a wildcard (hence invitation). Although the old county system doesn't exist anymore and has been replaced by badminton academy's ...

    As for international tournaments you should search for Youth Internationals (often U11-U19 categories) instead of Junior Internationals (U19). As for entry procedures ... as far as I can remember the county/coaches took care of all that.

    Example from a dutch one:

    In each age category, entries will be accepted according to the following order:
    a. Priority rule for groups: members of national teams
    members of district teams
    members of regional teams
    individual entries;
    b. Groups can be pre-registered till 10 November 2010 by reporting the number of players (m/f) per age category. Groups registered before 10 November 2010 will be given priority to groups registered after 10 November 2010;
    c. The first 8 boys and 8 girls of a group are assured of competing in the tournament. If more than 8 boys and girls are registered, the additional players can only take part in the order of acceptance of article 16.a if there are spare places;


    On topic :D: wasn't Ricky Subagja the frontcourt guy?

    I am a bit surprised at so many people voting for Koo Kien Keat, actually. He is definitely exciting to watch, quick with his reflexes, aggressive both on attack and defense, and he definitely has the skills, but I really feel that he lacks consistency at times. Furthermore, he also sometimes has a bad habit of trying to force net battles when he isn't making them...I think he has lots of potential and will maybe become one of the best, but I think he's not the best yet.

    Tony Gunawan and Cai Yun have both been amazing to watch...out of the front players I've seen extensively, I would vote for these two.

    I just watched their matches again last nite on DVD, its abit hard to see clearly whether its Ricky or Rexy is the front court man, as they are quite balance in both dept. But yeah, i can see that Ricky actually has the more modern play style that we see front court men today. Lots of cutting/intercepts and cross court drops, whereas Rexy played more direct when he was on the front.

    Maybe because there are so many Malaysian fans here :D:D

    BTW how about Hendra Setiawan, what do you think? To me at least he's better than LYD and KKK, and at least on par with TG and CY.

    I think he is not better at Cai Yun - the really outstanding skill is his ability to intercept. As a whole, I think CY is better due to his pure speed and aggression. LYD, if he is not yet better, will definitely become better than HS. He is more athletic, more aggressive, and better at the back. His ability to read the game is already on par with HS - in my eyes, he's surpassed him already. Only weakness seems to be the inability to win a big title in MD (one of the big 3).
    It's always surprising to me how far HS went with a partner like MK :D Proves that net play is the vital part in doubles...

    They are all different (the ones still playing and dominating the net). Setiawan is the best reader of the game atm, no question imo, he just has really bad luck with his partner and still Olympic champion, amazing. Cai Yun fastest at the net of them all. KKK most creative one (if he's on) he sees gaps that aren't there simply unbelievable (let's forget about what when he's not on...). Lee Yong Dae has most of this aspects, more all-around I guess. But which one is the best? When at his top form I'd still say KKK and I'm no Malaysian :D Also which ones should be taken in consideration are their partners I think. For example JJS will (almost) never let LYD down, which means LYD will always be free/able to play his game at the front court. But FHF/TBH/MK are not always that consistent imo. TBH too dependant of KKK, FHF has gotten better but still has some matches where he completeley loses it.
