    I don't know where you get all that info from but they both have been playing on the senior tour for years. The only junior event they have been playing is the world junior championships for one-two weeks out of the whole year. Both have also already played Uber Cup and Sudirman Cup. Missing one Super Series event isn't going to make a difference ;)
    People are saying they are playing too many (senior) events for their young age ...

    seems that 3 out of four MS in the semis are future stars....we are looking at the future here...if daren liew goes through, all four semi finalist will possibly be the big names in the future

    Who saw Ma Jin and Xu Chen take a set against Tan Boon Heong and Koo Kien Keat? :p
    Great game; good to see the Malaysians back in form, and the Koreans developing well.

    okay they bought the rights too so not really a lift.... but out of the whole song this trumpet tune stole the show.... as this is what is played during the small breaks every 5 minutes during cricket matches here...

    The tune has got a cult status similar to the chariots of fire theme..

    Well well well. You get to understand that the music that is featured in the arena out there has nothing to do with India, it's a famous Spanish song broadcasted in Portugal/Spain/France during the corrida...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKULXMVCeOI

    On the contrary, it's the IPL that has made plagiarism of this spanish corrida song haha

    Although Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong lost this round but watched them played like they are right back on track, especially no more fanzy shot from Koo Kien Keat but still not good enough in net play as opponent look oppotunity to net kill... while Tan Boon Heong need to improve more in front court as it is the real weapon of destruction once opponent lift or defend short half court... anyway see you in next tournament (China SS and HK SS)...

    P.S: please no 'Gangnam Style' play in background or during interval, that's bring good luck for any Korean pairs...

    Sigh, my guess is Tang Jinhua is going to be Ma Jin's long-term partner.

    I now believe Liew Daren deserves to no longer be called a back up player :) proved his credentials in the last 6 months :)

    Well done :)

    Inthanon's retrieving capabilities are out of this world.... Her cross court blocks and cross court net-drops are amazing when it lands in. The things that differentiated SN and Inthanon today are SN's experience and her lifts off of Inathanon's drop shots...
