    At this moment of posting in Men's team,

    Korea Bt Msia 3-0.

    Ina leading China 2-1, Taufik bt Lin Dan,Xia bt Rony, Cgandra/Sigit bt

    Zhang Jun/Liu Yong, 4th tie doubles still contested.

    Don't hope to see much footage of Asiad as OCA is charging about

    US$150K for 2 weeks telecast of 5 hours a day highlights.

    Sing got so mad they refused to broadcast the Asiad.

    Yeah, Channel 5 was showing IND vs China LIVE just now!

    It was a pretty exciting contest between Xia Xuanze and Rony Augustinus! Managed to catch the first set on the bus on my way home and caught the 3rd set at home!

    Luckily Mongoose managed to record Taufik vs Lin Dan, X.Xuanze vs R.Agustinus and Candra/Sigit vs Z.Jun/L.Yong!
    Gonna borrow from him to watch. :p

    Looks like IND are gonna win the event.....

    The question in the China vs Indo series was why would China send out Lin Dan to face against Taufik? Lin hasn't won a single match since the return to 5x15 while Bao Chun Lai and Chen Hong have both done very well. Any of those two would have been a good choice, maybe Chen a little better choice because of his recent victories. After Lin lost, it was all over!

    err, try 300 C$ + string + plus GST.


    Anyway, i can't figure out why china can't produce good MD players that could take INA.

    It has to do in part with China's stubborness in not wanting to hire a better doubles coach. Park Joo Boon would have been a good choice after he leaves Malaysia. At this rate, their doubles current doubles don't look to be going anyway great. However, China has potential in future prospects, Sang Yang and Zheng Bo who won the men's doubles at the junior championships in 2000. They just have to keep developing them.

    Maybe it has to do with better players prefering to play singles in China.

    Both Li Yong Bo and Tian Bi Yi were in world's top ten singles before they formed a

    pair in 82/83.Rudy Hartono, Christian and Liem Swie King were very good at doubles.

    Strange enough Msia is making doubles players specialise in school.They look at

    certain players with certain desired skills such as strength and speed and start

    them as doubles pair when they are young.Yap Kim Hock's talent scouting has

    resulted in about 2-3 world class junior pairs to watch.

    Unfortunately somehow it has also come to a point where Msia has no potential world class under 18 singles.

    Korea bts Ina 3-1 for gold! Look at the close score over 3 sets between Taufik and

    Shon!They didn't even have to play last singles as in most ties nowadays.At one

    point Taufik staged a walkout.The Koreans play like men possessed in their home

    ground!

    I thought I saw glimpse of Li Mao in the Korean team in news highlights?

    According to the news article on http://www.worldbadminton.net, Taufik stormed off in the middle of the second game, furious over another dubious line call by the line judge.

    The match could have been ruled a win by default but instead team officials negotiated and ended up with quite a precendent in allowing the umpires to over-rule the line judges (instead of replacing the line judge in question).

    One of the Korean players responed by saying that if the games had been held in Indonesia, the INA team would have enjoyed the same advantage... Hmmm...so, it's okay to fix the results? In which case, why not declare the host country winners in all events?

    It's too bad that line judges are being given a black mark by the actions of a few.

    there is actually a history of biased line judge in Korea. i have read reports dates back to the late 80s, if i remember correctly, it was a match between LiYB/TianBY and ParkJB/KimMS, may be the WC or something.

    on most reports, i have read things like this:

    "But the players need to also be careful about the possibility that the linesmen will prefer host shuttlers, and not to mention the tremendous home crowd support,"

    Well, the same controversies occurred in the FIFA world cup 2002 that was hosted in Korea. The Spaniards scored a goal in the first few minutes of extra time but that was rule a no-goal and the Koreans ended up winning that quater-final match in pentalty kicks. Lets just hope that no line-judging controversies occur in the badminton individual events starting tonight with the Men's and Women's Singles.

    Erm.... hi everyone. Kwun "scolded" me for not posting after I went for the Singapore Open so to make up for that, I'm writing to say hello. For the time being, I'm stuck in USA (second year of college - urgh!) though I do surf the Net occasionally and especially now, just so I know what's happening in Pusan.

    Of course, it's depressing to hear that Korea won the Men's event from poor line-judging - if that was what really happened. I didn't see the match; only read a report from World Badminton and some rather disgruntled posts here. Will any kind soul who saw the whole thing brief me on what happened, or was Taufik just in one of his moods again?

    In the meantime, it's nice to be back again - even if only for a few minutes. Take care everybody and have a smashing good time!

    Cheers,
    Adel

    Well I saw highlights on TV and in match Taufok vs Shon

    the shuttle was well in at crucial stage. You need to be short-sighted

    to call it out.

    Of course taufik over-reacted, the Msian team for eg.have long built in

    bad calls in their game and to make due allowance.

    In other countries they do things like switching off stadium lights at crucial stages

    or creating lengthy distractions.

    Kwun was right Li Mao is Shon's personal coach.

    What I saw in highlights was that Shon and Lee played like they were possessed.

    Asiad Men's Singles latest :

    Hafiz bts Chen Hong over 3 sets.

    Therefore Quarter Finals :

    Hafiz-Taufik,

    Wong Choon Han-Lee HI

    Xia Xuan Ze-Hendrawan

    Gopi-Shon

    Let's see if Xia can at last break the jinx and finally bt his bogeyman b4 he retires.

    I think the player in form is Taufik.

    Li Mao once said that Shon had the most potential among the young Korean MS players, even more than Lee HI who has been posting the best international results. Li did such a good job in Korea that their BA was virtually begging him to return after his contract ended. And he did.

    Anyway, I was quite sad that Lee HI didn't come to the Sing Open.
