    I also missed most of matches, awful display from Towi in 3rd set, feel bad for Lily.

    DPY seemed improving based on tight score vs LCW

    Kor has another lethal md and congrat to Daina also.

    This was pretty funny. The small sounds samples they play telling people to leave the building do to an emergency kept getting stuck like an old record, making it repeat the same words over and over again.
    People started laughing hard which completely stopped the evacuation which turned out to be a good thing seeing as it was a false alarm. :p

    DPY is indeed improving a lot, defense, speed, net shot, you name it, almost of all departments.
    If DPY continues play like this, he might become a threat to LCW.

    Even camera work was brilliant with cameras in all the right spots, well almost... the replays and the coach-player chats during breaks, for the first time I have seen the discussions of both side being aired. Overall it was a pleasant experience watching this event both in quality of matches and broadcasting.

    Almost thought he was trying that Danish dance performed by the contestants of the Amazing Race 19 :D.

    I still think Du Pengyu just played one of his best matches here, but he won't be good enough to actually challenge the top players unlike Chen Long. The best he could do is a Shon Wan Ho.

    Something that I had noticed Du Pengyu's footwork since the first day I saw him.
    The movements of his feet seem to be exaggerated.
    He must be using a lot of energy covering the courts.
    Same case with Chen Long.
    But I can't really tell if it is so or not, even after comparing with players like Lin Dan.
    Still trying to see what the differences are between the Irish tap dances, the Danish and the Korean ones.

    With Shin/Yoo's victory in the MD, it sets me thinking about the recent hype over Lee/Ko pairing; they were touted as potential medal winners in the next Olympics. But given the results of the recent Denmark Open, is their pairing really as good as what the hype says?

    IMO, the MDs scene is ushering a new era with the retirement/reshuffling of top MD players. Do Lee/Ko have the potential to be the top MDs of their time like CY/FHF, LYD with his old partner JJS? I watched Lee/Ko's previous matches; IMO, their playwas ok but it was not that impressive.

    On the other hand, I thought Yoo/Shin showing at the Denmark Open was very impressive for a new pairing. Their movement round each other is fluid and they seem to have a good understanding on court. Kim/Kim is another pair with huge potential, given a few more years to grow and develop themselves.

    This leads me to ponder is Lee/Ko really an ideal combination? Some food for thought..

    Kim Ki Jung does reminds me of JJS in some ways. They seem to be more comfortable in the back court, instead of the front.

    While Kim Ki Jung shows potential, can't help but feel that he is still rather inexperience and may need abit more time to develop his play. Would it be ideal to pair him with LYD now?

    Yep, agreed. His hard-working style imposes some limitations on his play, and although he could improve from his form last year, I don't think he will really challenge the top dogs. Maybe an odd scare here and there at most... the slow venue obviously suits his game better...

    I think you're both confusing Ki Jung and Sa Rang here.....Kim Sa Rang is the one Lee played the Thomas Cup with. Ki Jung is the more front court-oriented of the two and also slightly less athletic than his MD partner :D

    Gangnam is just a fad.
    It's not graceful and it won't last.
