    China will be prepared in the Asian Games.. that is their Goal.. their lost in the doubles this time is nothing much to talk about.

    I was also thinking: for a doubles pair that relies too much on speed and power, won't their performance suffer when they are tired after several tournaments?

    I don't mean this as an excuse for Fu and Cai. Rather, this could instead be the major weakness they have to overcome: how to defeat opponents using strategy when they are physically tired.

    i dont agree with that.. the fighting spirits is always there...if just wanna pure focus on the Asian Games.. 1st of all need not participate in this match... i mean whether they win/lose surely there will be ppl talk about their performance no matter what...

    and i belief the MD match is important to china because each event in every tournament is important to them.. in my view..they will ensure the players enter into final and on top of that wins the title... thats why i guess LYB was there to give the MD a word or two during the interval break just now!

    I agree with ants that losing in this invitational tournament is not a big deal at all :D

    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir have beaten Zhang Jun/Gao Ling 21-15, 21-16. So, it's another rematch against Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen. This will probably be Zhang Jun's last match with Gao Ling since she's paired up with Zheng Bo in the Asian Games.

    They have already met 4 times this year with the records even at 2-2 :eek: They will probably be the top 2 seeds for the Asian Games XD events. The other possible seeds will include Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam and Lee Jae Jin/Lee Hyo Jung.

    I wouldn't think that Fu's smashes are not as effective as before if given the same circumstances. However, if your opponents don't give you the lifts that you look for in order to properly executive a powerful smash, then even if you can smash at 332km/hr, it really doesn't mean much... although Fu's around the head smash can be about 308km/hr (from world championship 06).. but just imagine trying to smash at your harderst while running around the court. Kinda hard, isn't it.:crying:

    Come on Fu/Cai, you guys can and will do better!!!:cool: In the meantime, you guys really need to expand your game some more.:p

    Fu's smashes = top tier!!!:D

    Interesting thing is if you look up the IBF official website, and look under the head 2 head section... some matches in some particular events (eg. Thomas/uber cup) results are not taken into account. An example is after Peter Gade defeated LCW in Thomas cup 06, their head 2 head still says Gade 0 vs 2 LCW???:confused:

    So, I wonder if they will include the non-IBF sanction event such as the "world cup" into account this time.:p

    With their victory today over Fu/Cai, it's virtually a done deal. So, CTF/LWW and CCM can kiss their Doha dream goodbye...

    i guess in team events like cups and invitational event...it's not counted...LCW's win over taufik at T/U cup qualifiers is also not shown

    Spoken too early,man.Sometimes it is too bad to underestimate the Malaysians.Now, we will have a classic match against the Indonesians.May the force of Rexy be with them.
