    It's Friday the 13th. Let's see who are the lucky ones at this Quarter-Finals. :D:D:D

    For Schedule of Matches;

    For Live Streaming, perhaps BCers from different countries can post the links that are working for their regions. Different countries sometimes cannot use the same links. I have just checked the BWF's link. It says the matches will commence in about 17 and a half hours' time;

    This time, there are only TWO ( 10 - 10 ) matches. :):):)

    There are only 3 seeds left in MD, No 3, 6 and 8. This discipline is up for grabs.

    The sad thing is even with the knowledge of Ko/Yoo out in the bottom half, both Koo/Tan and BoSan choked.

    Looking good for Markis/Hendra to launch their comeback.

    Taufik's play has been very good since at least the SSF. The problem is his stamina. He could not sustain his speed after half of game 2. Lets see how he fares against LCW tomorrow. I hope he wins! :D

    Yes, Koo/Tan and Bosan failed big time to take this golden opportunity. If Kido/ Hendra can defeat Chai/Guo they have decent chance to grab the title

    Is hard to believe Taufik can keep pace with Chong Wei with his current stamina, regardless how good a sport car is, it won't perform when the gas tank is empty :D
    Is mind boggling to know so many players emphasize skill over stamina in this sport, just look at team China, is always stamina over skill. Not that skill set is not important but without great stamina, skill can never prevail as the game gets deeper. In that respect, I am really mad with all the Malaysia young players, they all have excellent skill but sub-par stamina, really that hard to figure it out or just hard to put in the hard work?

    It is not stamina over skill!! The more skilled you are the better stamina will look as well as you will control the game take the shuttle earlier and run LESS than the opponent!!

    i guess that's the case when one's skill is somewhat higher than the other. but when one skill is not, or when the two players are pretty even, then one must make it up with hardwork by running more and more and forever. :)

    As long as both have a VO2MAX enoguh to last 1h 15 minutes or so.. they should be fine stamina wise in most cases :)

    If so then older players like Taufik/Gade would still be the top players in the world as they have excellent skill set plus experiences! In my opinion, most of the international players have very good skill(Chong Wei is the best among all) and the main thing differentiate them is the stamina/fitness.
    I understand skill set can make players more efficient but great stamina/fitness will push the players over the hump?

    Skill over stamina, is like me playing with my mature (read 'older') female friends, they keep returning shots right to me and me sending the birdie all over the court, therefore I do not need to be fit, skill prevails.
    When it comes to world class players, pro players are skillful at that level, small margin advantage. Someone once said in BC, in the 3rd set LD has just warmed up and getting into turbo drive, and LCW being very fit, that is when TH dies on the court when his legs betray him and he couldn't sustain the pace. In this case, stamina prevails. If playing against LCW/LD, prepare to have the gas tank fully charged into the 3rd set.
    Look no further than KKK/TBH lacking fitness, so many times when the 3rd set comes along, KKK is cooked and TBH smashes faded.
    Regarding 'players lasting 1hr 15min on court, that would be fine stamina wise', but lasting and being the same player as in the 1st set is 2 different thing, the tired player may barely hanging in the 3rd set with his legs gone and praying for the game to finish fast while the fitter player takes over control.

    In WC2005, TH fitness and skills was awesome. In 2006 TC (I was in KL watching live the entire event on TV), TH lost every match and he panted, his fitness MIA. Skill vrs stamina, stamina first at pro level.
    I am not sure how many 50+ players in BC train on stamina. I find it hard and daunting, I have to conquer my mind everytime I do my run. I run 10-15km a week in the oval in the gym. 9 laps equal 1 km, that is 45 laps 2-3x a week, 1-go around no rest in between laps. Before I even run the 1st step, my mind asks me 'how the heck to last 45 laps and everytime I went to the gym, the oval appears to look bigger than the week before. Training on fitness is far harder than technique as age advances. Young kids that I play with have no stamina problem so if I am not fit and play them, I am cooked. I have no doubt that to higher pace badminton or any sport, fitness first.

    For that brief moment, I thought you were talking about me on the daunting impression of training:D
    I am going to be 52 and my only "training" is playing matches on court, all these "hell-like-running-lifting-dieting" training is really not for me. My legitimate reason(excuse) for not training the way you do is prone to injury, at this age, injury can very well be permanent retirement from this sport, that's a no no:D
