    they are big game players while CPS/GLY have only won one super series...I'm talking when both pairs are at their best....I would say the Polish pair will have an edge

    Reaching the final of a premier ss is already a huge success.. Grabbing the title will certainly be a huge bonus....

    Xu chen is currently having some injuries and problems. Let's see whether the mas pair can capitalize on that.

    er....can i say, against injured player also cannot win?
    anyway, i think they can take one step at a time...
    beating the INA pair is a good start...next is to beat them again and again
    and slowly aim for ZN/ZYL and XC/MJ

    Based on their current form, CPS/GLY have to give extra commitment and discipline on court. Xu/Ma is currently on form :(

    that 5 consecutive point is from gly serve.
    it wont happen if cps were to serve that point!
    so if cps dont had a counselling session for his serve,this pair wont win any major title.
    they have the ability,but whenever cps serve,the point is free!

    Today's match shows the difference between a pair who is capable of winning majors(although they haven't yet) and a pair who can win Super Series titles but not majors.

    congrats to Ah Soon/Ah Ying for reaching final
    of course hard fact...they are not major title material yet
    and as usual, Ah Ying's appearance outshone her yesterday

    why do people keep saying GLY is pretty? Perhaps she's just not my type...anyway...despite their high world ranking....I would rate CPS/JFN a much better pair than them...I mean...the danes regularly beat chinese opponents while it's a different story for the M'sians...

    CPS also did admit they are nowhere a top mixed dobules pair yet..mainly due to their lack of experience.. well, even before their final yesterday, i can already foreseen the danish pair to win the title.. The semi final victory is just a pure luck imo;)

    [​IMG]The top two: (From left) Malaysians Chan Peng Soon, Goh Liu Ying, Danes Christinna Pedersen and Joachim Fisher Nielsen posing after receiving their mixed doubles medals. The Danes won 21-13, 21-18.

    THE stage was all set for mixed doubles pair Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying to win their first Malaysian Open title.With top pairs like China’s Xu Chen-Ma Jin and Zhang Nan-Zhao Yunlei
    and Indonesia’s Tontowi Ahmad-Liliyana Natsir not competing, and with a huge crowd to cheer them on, Peng Soon-Liu Ying had their best ever chance to win the title.Instead, they blew it.The top seeds and world No. 3, who had struggled since the first round, were once again insipid and timid as they lost to second seeds Joachim Fischer Nielsen-Christinna Pedersen 13-21, 18-21 in yesterday’s final.A combination of nerves and a lack of speed on court cost Peng Soon-Liu Ying dearly as they were swatted aside in the first game.The second game looked to be going the same way as the first as the Danes established a huge lead of 19-13.Peng Soon-Liu Ying, however, refused to give up and fought back to reduce the deficit to 19-18.The Danes, with all their experience, just did enough to snatch the last two points to deny the Malaysians the chance of ending the 50-year wait for a home title in the mixed doubles.
    Tan Aik Huang-Teoh Siew Yong were the last Malaysian pair to win the mixed title in 1963.Peng Soon attributed the defeat to nervousness and the pressure they put on themselves.“We gave ourselves too much pressure because we really wanted to win. We were all tensed up going into the match,” said Peng Soon.“It was not the best result we wanted but what’s done is done. Now, we have to get ready for the next tournament at the German Open (Feb 26-March 3),” he added.Liu Ying was apologetic for their dismal performance and for letting the crowd down.“It’s quite disappointing and I’m really sorry for letting the crowd and all those who supported us down,” said Liu Ying. “We really did not play our best in this tournament and there is no excuse for that.”Pedersen was delighted that they managed to find their form at the right moment.
    “I’m really happy with the win because Peng Soon-Liu Ying played a good tournament up to the final. They also had the home crowd backing them,” said Pedersen.

    The Malaysian XD curriculum is not fully developed yet ..... there is a lot of catch up against Denmark, China and Indonesia - teams that have had XD World or Olympic Champs in spades for decades.

    Even Korea had lagged behind again, and trying to find its own way back ......

    For CPS/GLY, there is still a distinct lack of variation in how they approach the game against different styles. Having said that, they've done reasonably well given that they are not at peak condition now. We just can't expect miracles straight away in a discipline we've never excelled in ......
