    i like how calm and cool he was!

    even the great Tony Gunawan has to rush to have the racket changed.

    Wow! :eek:

    How awesome must you be to leisurely saunter to your bag mid-point. Then stifle a yawn while choosing which racket you want. Maybe get a stick of gum and check the weather on your phone. Before going back to the rally to see if your partner still has things well in hand. (quite well in hand, thanks).

    And that was against competition pretty highly-ranked in Canada. Amazing.

    "You must confront your enemies not merely with spirit but with disdain. Confidence indeed a blissful ignorance can impart, ay, even to a coward's heart, but disdain is the privilige of those who have been assured by reflection of their superiority to their adversary." -Thucydides.

    I'm thinking these 2 guys Yoga and Arif are probably two of best players in North America as I understand it they've only been in Canada a couple of years. They are/were high level Indonesian players.

    In the matches I saw - they weren't pushed - I believe Toby Ng played them in the finals - perhaps Toby can comment on their level compared with the other international players.

    Forgot to ask earlier - is it my imagination or is that badminton court missing lines? The front service line and the back doubles service lines are missing?

    Wow, it's been a while since I came to the forum... apparently :pYeah, they are a very strong team. I'd like to see them play against Derrick and Adrian though. I came through the other side of the draw with a scratch partner (Kyle Hunter, former ED of Badminton Canada) so we were quite happy to be there. However, the crowd was quite one sided, which was quite disappointing, considering Kyle and I made it through to the finals after significant efforts. I think they would do fairly well internationally, but I would cautious to think they can breeze through a tournament like Canada Open.
