    This pair is not bad, played well against Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng... the speed of some of the rallies was damn fast! wow...

    Will this pair be the next Candra/Sigit or the next Luluk/Alven?? Time will tell...

    They have the skills though... Cant really comment, only saw them once in the Copenhagen Masters final days ago...

    Seeing more AT700 in MD. Puzzled why AT800OF wasn't favored more so than AT700. I know suket of thailand uses AT800OF.

    Fantastic photos, thanks for the posting.

    Their ages make me happy... I like it when players peak older, it gives me hope!

    I know it's a bit difficult, but the easiast way to differentiate is..

    ...noticed one of them tends to wear a knee support/wrap, that is Hendra. Joko is the one that doesn't have any leg or knee support/brace/wrap. On skin tone, Hendra is a tad fairer than Joko...That's all i can describe to you. I'm sure as they get more and more exposure in international events, we'll be able to distinguish them better..:p :D ;) :cool:

    Hahaha, Joko is the one with curly hair!!! Easy enough..

    Yup you are right.. Hendra was always searching for a knee support during CPH Masters.. And yup, Joko's quite tan.

    Hahahaha, Erin said Joko's name sounds like joke.. GRILL! Yay! Vita taught me how to cheer for them.. o_O

    Yannie is correct

    Yannie is actually correct. In Indonesian, AYO JOK! Means "C'mon Joko!" [Jok is a short form of Joko] :cool:
