    Daren Liew might not the 2nd best for MAS MS, I preferred Chong Wei Feng as 2nd best MAS MS...

    I would have scolded LCW

    .
    Unbelievable. I would have scolded LCW. :):):)

    I would say this to LCW; "Never relax; If you can defeat an opponent with ease, just do it. Don't keep us fans in suspense."

    Yes, I prefer Rendy/Berry than Bona/Afiat. But looking at the scoreline, maybe Rendy/Berry has to be tried with different partner and if still can not excel, they both could be in danger too.

    Its really unfortunate that we don't have live streaming. I missed RMV Gurusaidutt's match against Datuk. What a great fight given by RMV. It would have been better if we would have got the live streaming ... :)

    Tian Houwei whose performance I thought has been mediocre all along by CHN's standard, has just ousted Simon Santoso.

    Guo Kai seems to be pushing NTM hard whose attrition style must be forcing his young opponent to slog it out point by point. Good for GK's experience.

    Frankly I'd prefer to see Xue Song play NTM tomorrow, wondering how Xue Song's attacks can dent NTM's solid defence or be worn out by him.

    So far CHN's young generation of players is causing a bit of a stir here. What's more important is to gain valuable experience, winning any title is just a bonus.

    Liew Daren has proven again that he cannot last three games. He lost to the unseeded Korean, Lee Dong Keun, in three games just as he did last week to Lee Hyun Il who has not played in BWF-sanctioned tournaments since London 2012 OG. The match was in the Axiata Cup competition. His excuse for the loss was that he was not feeling well. LCW should also not take it easy when he plays unseeded players as he did in AE 2013 and now the Australian Open 2013 where he needed three games to subdue the lowly ranked R. M. V. Gurusaidutt. In the AE, he was almost bundled out in the first round.

    RMV is a good player. He has improved a lot it seems. Perhaps it is a disappointment for not having a live streaming for this tournament.

    TM's strength is not really good, so let subdue Xue Song in two games. if can not, i'm afraid TM will lose in 3rd game. Good luck!

    Well, actually you don't need high level coaches to coach the kids, and in other countries they would also not coach kids. What's needed are coaches at the club or local level to teach the proper footwork and basic strokes. These are often times ignored and the "coaches" themselves perhaps have no idea how to do them correctly in the first place. If the basis is not learnt properly, there's essentially no chance for these kids to move technically one step forward or they will at the best become one of the busy-moving players that are seen quite often in tournaments.

    The so-called "talents" are often times youngsters who have won some local tournaments. If they are guided and focused to win more matches, say, by developing a more aggressive style, which usually works well against other kids, they get further away from consolidating basic skills, which is a boring but essential part of good badminton. Nowadays badminton is such a technically sophisticated sport. For the "talents", there's no way back without doing the first step right.
