    Your fellow German Guy, Hagen had some training and feel of the venue a few days back and that helped him a lot. Sensed he was really serious in it. Now wonder he won the only point for World Team.:D

    Nice! Sound like lots of fun. Surprised that only Huangkokhau was the only one in a singlet given the heat.

    Can't believed that the world team only managed to win 1 game but gotta say that the Malaysia team seems to be younger overall (or maybe the World team looks older because they were brow-beaten by the Malaysian team) :D :D :D

    I think your times belong to another world. :D We played in the morning just past 10am not in the evening as your posts suggested. And the entire programme finished in time for some of our members to witness the destruction of LYB/ZN's China Uber Cup Team beginning at 2 pm.

    Yong, Chu and I (Loh) returned to Yong's place to view the shocking scenes of China's debacle on TV. :eek:

    Group picture of the baddy gathering..

    ..about more than 50 people/BC members attended..*applause*..here they are, we have tried our best to ID them..

    We originally planned to start @ 9 am, but matches supposed to start @ 9:30am. But we ended up starting close to 10am. At the end we finished all the 9 matches before 11am. After that, a few of us played open matches..

    [​IMG]
    first row: danielwong, benji, limsy, soleha, Scann's children (they don't include hcyong), leng lui from Thailand, suetyan, bk168, Loh
    2nd row: robin7, scann, terry, Gregory, hcyong, choyonn (between leng lui & suetyan), nokh88, keonloh, ants
    3rd row: ctjcad, samuel882 cyclone9, helen88, her partner, Joseph, ?, spchu, ?, ?, lindantrucool, Kim, sumardi, ?, Badfever, AppleMerah, epaphroditus

    Some of the World Team found their form too late. For example, madbad. Played another match in doubles against limsy and defeated limsy after coming from behind. Not even limsy's best tricks as captured by drifit could help.

    Others in the World Team found themselves too late to be on the lineup (aka the Nigerian effect). Kim got lost and was relegated from Team player to Umpire.

    But he still managed to play some friendlies.

    Apparently, no one noticed the Tournament Referee's absence from the Group Photo ......
