    I agree. Remember, Cai Yun And Fu Haifeng have homeground advantage.
    The olympic gold medal is theirs to lose.

    Not to mentioned, everytime the shuttle hits the ground near the lines...you know the line judge/umpire will rule in favor of them....Kido/Setiawan or KKK/TBH must overcome this diadvantage to stand a chance....this is the time to see what their mental toughness is made of.

    M. Lungaard/JE or CTF/LWanWah or other veterans might have some experience in mind games.....so they might overcome the pressure cooker of the olympics.

    Aiyooo, like that, KKK/TBH have to add Kido/Setiawan to the list too, along with the Japanese, Taiwanese, Tony/Chandra, Fu/Cai,Luluk/Alvent.

    Not just Rexy influence cos when Kido/Setiawan face other Msia pairs - the oldies CTF/LWW, Gan/Lin, Tan BS/Ong, they are not afraid, only KKK/TBH. I dont think Zakry/Fairuz have played them.

    And surprisingly, Gan/Lin, supposed to be the weakest Msia MD, managed to stretch them to 21-23 in Macau Open. the coaches said Gan/Lin should have won if not cos of nervousness.

    Like see KKK/TBH face, already lose confidence - of course good for our Msia MD but this thread is abt Kido/Setiawan.

    Dull. :confused: Don't say that! You obviously haven't had a chance to stand close or as a receiver to Kido's smash. Since you are already his friend, you should try it. Get Kido to smash a few shuttles to you or stand close to him when he practice his jump smash. It gives you plenty of adrenaline rush, just like watching F1 (and it's free for you;)). Just don't hold me responsible if you get 'killed'. :p:p

    Anyway, congratulation to Markis and Hendra. Hope they can peak in next year OG(just like HKO) and I get to watch some great matches from them. I am pretty sure they will. :)

    Yes, the Olympics Gold medal is for theirs to lose...but u also remember....Fu/Cai tend to perform badly in front of their home crowd. They lost in the Invitational World Cup 2005 to Tony/Howard, in China Masters 2006 Final to Eriksen/Hansen last year, and of course having bad records in the China Open from 2005-2007 :cool: They beat Kido/Hendra in China Masters this year due to some dubious line calls at the time when the INA pair was controlling the match.

    I am not doubting his smash. It's just that smashing always can be a bit monotonous :D

    yes, I agreed. They are humble & shy, let's see their winning point, didn't express themself excitement after winning the titles. I like them.

    LOL. The first pic is very funny. Did someone stripped and run around the other end of the court? Thanks AChan.

    They were waiting the decision from the linesman of their smash.

    They really should learn how to smile :rolleyes: Look at how their seniors enjoyed the accolades from the crowds and sweet smile during the prize presentation ceremony. Sigh......
