    Not always easy to keep them all apart ;) Although I find that Kenneth speaks a lot more fluently than Morten - but that's to be expected if you coach the English ntl team :D
    Nice to see that he's keeping fit though (he currently competes in the Bundesliga for Berlin) - always nice to see coaches keeping their edge, I think. Zhang Jun and Xia Xuanze come to mind in that regard. And before you say anything - ya, ZJ has gained a slight bit of weight :D, but I've seen a video where he warms up/trains with the MD squad....and he's still rather powerful with the racket. Not quite as agile as he used to be :D

    A nice day full of BAdminton!!
    It was a wonderful week in Birmingham, even with all the upsets it was extremely interesting to watch the streams and replays (I really hope I get there next year).
    Looking forward to next week as many many good players came to BAsel for the GPG Swiss OPen. Finally some live Badminton to watch for me ;)

    Do the bonuses for the coaches come from PBSI or the sponsor ?

    BTW, Yonex sponsored most of the INA coaches. Nova was wearing Yonex jacket.

    Besides the contract bonuses, some other bonuses might come as well. Last year Djarum gave the bonus


    On another point, I think China strength will not be weakened by outsiders. The cheering of supporters and whatever strategies the rest of the world might make will not make any difference.
    The only thing that can weaken is their own internal. Just like Indonesia. The problem in the past 10 over years are the organisation. Changing PBSI mindset is the correct step.

    Judging from the comments of the video of the WS final : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noGt4MV_S-E
    the peak of the viewers at 40000 was Thai-based. I guessed well :p
    Thais are fans of youtube it seems ! I look forward to the Thai athletes in future tournaments.

    It's perfect strategy, Zhang/Zhao had no idea to apply any tactic to overcome them, Towi's attack was really sharp last night. Once again INA bagged 1 AE title through same pair :)

    Yup, the confetti throwed to close final match. I always like champion's parade after victory ceremony and when two finalists entered the arena, so grande :)

    I got chilled everytime any players name get called, and the ALL ENGLAND wall is turned around... Then players walk cooly to the court carrying their badminton bag and a racquet in their hand.... Accompanied with a backsound of coldplay.... That's my favorite!!
