    What did you think of Candra and Halim?

    According to their results so far, they seem to be at a very high level...

    Were they really too fast for you?

    Do you think they really are better organized than they were during the asian GP?
    Can they still get much stronger by the olympics?

    I'm waiting for your answers... :)

    Hi Seven

    Well i must say that they are very strong and they were are level better than us. Their offinsive, deffensive and their speed were just to much for us. I felt like we should push our game to another level and the result was just to many unprovoked mistakes. When i look at their results against Nathan & Anthony and jonas & Lars, it says everything about their class.

    I saw them in Malaysia, and i think the played much much better in Denmark Open, they seemed more focused and organised.

    I think they should be a pair to watch out for in the future, and i think they can be even better when they get more tournaments together.

    Thomas

    Thanks for your reply!

    It sounds like Indonesian staff made the right choice changing the pairs...

    Er, Halim is now being pushed to the limit (not of his patience, I hope :p) by Sir Dink :cool:

    All said and done, it must be quite something to win even a single rally when facing Halim :rolleyes:

    Halim must be just 30 now.
    I'd say that's still quite prime ;)
